Bait near Mathesson?

Hello all,

Just moved to a new area (near the Falls/Palmetto Bay) so it looks like I will be dropping the boat out at Mathesson most of the time. Im trying to find a place near the marina where I can get live shrimp/chum/bait. Ive looked around and from what I see most places are near the Grove. Is there anyone who knows of a closer spot?

Thanks

    Welcome to the Palmetto Bay hood Phinz13!!! If you want bait, chum and live shrimp BEFORE you hit the water, try Angel at F&F Marine off US1 and like 180th street. He is a local "mom & pop" shop that has a bit of everything. Once on the water, hit the markers and work them for live bait.

    Good luck!

    lock your boat up well, install cameras, and get a big dog.
