What we do

Hooked Up Live Baits is a premium live bait supply company that specializes in providing the highest quality live bait that Tampa Bay and Gulf of Mexico has to offer. As a Tampa Bay native, I was born into a fun filled life of fishing, boating and outdoor activities. At a young age I was taught the importance of timing, the value of quality live bait and the skill to productively use a cast net. If you want to catch quality fish, you must use quality bait.

Traditional bait shops can only carry tough hardy baits like shrimp, chubs and small pinfish due to rough transport and less than perfect water conditions. With that in mind I knew Tampa Bay needed a specialized live bait supplier that could offer delicate and seasonal live baits to local fisherman. With my love of the water, help from family and friends, a little skill and local knowledge Hooked Up Live Baits was created. My crew and I strive to provide premium quality live bait and give professional customer service to charter captains, wholesale dealers and recreational fisherman.
