Bait Shop in NSB

Hey folks,
Can anybody recommend a bait shop in NSB for surf baits? Frozen shrimp and stuff? My 7 yrd old will be fishing with me this year, so I'll be using twice as much bait. So, I'm looking for good prices.

Thanks

    I can tell you that the shop on Riverside Drive right by the marina has zero interest in its customers (this is the one right across from the court house). I feel like I'm bothering them by trying to buy some bait. I won't be back after the last two trips there. Oh, and the guy gave me a hard time about giving him a $10 bill, he wanted smaller bills.

    Thanks. Cecil's is typically where I've gotten mine in the past. Mainly because it's the only shop I knew of.

    If you can't find what you want at Cecils take the road behind them to 38 bait. All the way at the end of the road. They have a nice selection of live bait and you can buy fresh dead by the scoop for cheap.

    The sad part is that I bought about $6 worth of bait:huh

    definitely going to agree with this. and the one down the road across from the new smyrna boat ramp isn't too amazing either.

    Personally, I've had good experience with the shop on the marina for just picking up some live shrimp, but they don't carry a lot of other bait. Cecil's has been decent. 38 has been the best IMO with good inventory, helpful people, and it seems they have more live bait more often.

    If you are headed south on A1A, there is a shop near Bethune Beach that has some, and JBs also sells bait and opens at 6:30am.

    I didn't realize JB's opened at 6:30. I'll keep that option open as well. Sounds like 38Bait is top pick.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    Has anyone been to Native bait and tackle in Edgewater? I always forget about it. Its fairly new but I haven't been in yet.

    Native is ok. I've used them a few times. always had plenty of shrimp and the plastics I needed last minute.
