Bait and Tackle, the "world famous", friendly, often

Beach, a quaint little drinking town with a severe fishing problem, "home".
We are located on the main road to the Gulf beaches, half way
between Naples and Ft. Myers , Florida .
Beach is the gateway to Estero Bay and the Pine Island Sound
areas. These bays are known for some of the best "skinny
water" fishing for Trout, Red Fish and big Snook. The passes
and near shore waters are havens for the Silver King (Tarpon),
as well as Permit, Pompano and the many varieties of Snapper.
The deeper waters regularly yield large catches of Gag, Red
and Black Grouper as well as King and Spanish Mackerel. And
let us not forget combative Cobia and the elusive Tripletail.
Bait and Tackle offers a full line of light to heavy fishing
tackle including Owner, Eagle Claw and Mustad Hooks, Triple
Fish Mono and Seaguar Fluorocarbon Leader Materials. A variety
of leads and fishing leaders and rigs are readily available.

and weight classes.
