Kathy’s Bait and Tackle (CLOSED PERMANENTLY)
UPDATE: November 7th 2023
No bait shops at this location anymore. Both Kathy and the new owners who bought kathy’s closed down.
Kathy’s Bait and Tackle:
Address: 13016 Palm Beach Blvd, Fort Myers, FL 33905This Bait and Tackle shop is a small mom and pop type fishing shop located in Fort Myers, United States, but the best part is that the gentleman who usually works there is a really nice, friendly guy to talk to if you’re planning on fishing in the Alva area or elsewhere.
This shop is rarely busy, and I believe it’s due to the location.
Kathy’s Bait and Tackle offers:Shrimp shiners, nightcrawlers, redworms, wigglers, frozen squid, ladyfish, mullet, finger mullet, tackle, artificial, and onsite rod and reel repair
I had a rod repaired at this shop due to broken guides, and he did a great job making it look like it was never replaced.
Bait Shop Hours:
Mon: 7:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Tue: 7:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Wed: 7:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Thu: 7:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Fri: 7:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Sat: 7:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Sun: 7:00 AM – 3:00 PM
I can say that Kathy’s Bait and Tackle would be the kind of bait and tackle shop I’d like to run if I started a shop.
