Master Bait and Tackle, the "world famous", friendly, often provocative, cutting edge, and always humorous shop calls Bonita 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.


Bonita 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.


Master 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. We carry a wide variety of quality Penn, Shimano and Okuma Reels. We stock Star, Penn and Ugly Stik rods in many lengths and weight classes.
