If you are going to do any fishing on your vacation there is a nice place to pickup your hooks and tackle. Find this great Bait & Tackle Shop at mile marker 103.1 in the Upper Keys. Ask what is hot for catching and where to go. Here you can get everything for a fishing vacation, just be sure to have a hotel with refrigerator so you can keep your catch ready until you eat it!
Catch fish from you Hotel too! It is great to have a pole when you are down here, you can even fish right behind your hotel. I picked up a lower priced rod and reel, as we just play and wanted something that would work well and we can now bring it on all our Florida beach and keys vacations.
We had loads of fun on the Sailors Choice Party Fishing Boat. I would consider that if the fishing is hot, you just need to check the report and the wind speeds. Low winds means a better boat ride out and no upset stomachs.
I got into the Seagis Rods, as I needed an ultra-lightweight rod that is nicely sensitive to bites. These are made by Seastriker. My pick is 7 foot long and great for both light and heavy duty tackle.
These guys are awesome! Very friendly and professional service and the best prices in the Keys! We get all of our bait and tackle there! They even stay after hours for us when we are trapped on the stretch!
