    Not positive about cigar minows but mastrys definitely has chum.  Probably have cigar minnows.  Can also get bulk ice there.  

    4th street tackle also has chum but not sure about cigars.

    I can't remember the exact place but it's where all the commercial boats go out of on the intercoastal around St.Pete Beach.. There is a commercial store there where Doug and I used to buy frozen bait by the box at really good prices. maybe someone knows the name of the docks or maybe Doug still checks in from time to time.

    Just don't go to Walmart for any fishing supplies, go to local stores. You can get bait at Ideal Fishing Supply in Madeira Beach across from middle school.

    Ideal and Mastry's are the two places I'd try.  They shouldn't be hard to find in most local B&Ts.  Give one close to you a call to find out.
