Live bait near Islamorada

Are there any live bait boats in the Islamorada area? Would like to put some pilchers in the live well before heading out. Will be there in July.

    Not sure about live bait boats, but you can catch all the pilchards you want at Alligator reef using sabiki's.

    Widespread may be right, but catching bait with hook and line, as far as I know, is prohibited in a SPA.  You can baitfish with a castnet but you have to have a special baitfish permit to do so.
