    non1994 never fished out of hawks but have out of Islamorada and cudjoe and don't ever remember seeing any bait boats out of those places. save your self the aggravation and buy a chum basket and catch your own, it's easy chum along the channels, grunts, pinfish and ballyhoo will find their way into the slick you can use sabiki's to catch all the species. The only downside of catching the ballyhoo on the sabiki is they will typically spin the rig into a mess. We got them close enough and managed to cast net them, nothing like fresh ballyhoo and not having to pay crazy prices for them.

    And here it is.

    Bait Sources in S. Fla and the Keys


    1. Capt. Jimmy Lewis (Miami) 305.725. 8807 (Goggs)
    2. Capt. Andy Hoffman (Islamorada) 305.522.3680 (Goggs)
    3. Capt. Ed Hoffman (Islmorada) 305.522.0251 (Goggs)
    4. Amy Denius (Islamorada) 305.879.5689 (Speedo's)
    5. Capt. Lee Robinson (Tavenier) 305.393.0206 (Goggs)
    6. Capt. Jeff D' Stephano (Key West) 305.587.7644 (Goggs)
    7. Capt. Louis Rodriguez (Miami/Blackpoint Marina) 786.402.2135 (Speedo's)
    8. Kiki (sorry thats the name I know) (Islamorada) 305.240.0404 (Speedo's)

    10. Conrad (Marathon) 305.896.8763. (Goggs/Speedo's)


    The only thing that I would ask is that any of you who call and agree to buy from these people do so. This is part of their livelyhood and we all need to respect that.

    If anyone knows of more sources, please add to the thread.

    Good luck,

    Juan

    No on the water bait boats in the middle keys.

    chum and cast net..i caught more threadfins and ballyhoo than i could use...if you can't throw a net (which btw you should learn how to), bait a pinfish trap and put it on a sand hole on a flat somewhere...mark it with a water bottle tied to it with 100# mono...and mark it with ur gps..there ya go, all the baits you could ever need.
    If the fish aren't bitin', I jump in and shoot them....

    I don't know CapJohn, but some people are like that. He posts to the wrong forum, then gets pissy when no one answers.

    Don't be a ****** bag. For starters, you asked a vague question about "bait". You looking for shrimp, speedos, ballyhoo, pinfish, crabs? How do you expect to get an answer. Secondly, do you think that the 153 that viewed your question knew the answer and just decided to keep the information from you?

    You say you "respond" to questions even if they're in the wrong forum. Dude, you've got 70 posts, how much could you have possibly helped others? Delusions of grandeur are not a great character trait.

    You clearly have insecurity issues but don't assume the whole world is against you. Try to enjoy your stay.....and post something positive.

    Thanks Juan, this is great info.

    I would add two in Key Largo for live bait (you will have to check what they have)...
