Pick up Location:

The New Pass Bait Shop & Grill is our main pick up location for people staying on the barrier island of Lido, Longboat Key, and Anna Maria Island. New Pass Bait Shop is located on the North end of Lido Key and just over the bridge from Longboat Key. The bait shop is my first stop for ice, bait, and other supplies. It is the perfect place to have lunch on the water, or to get drinks and sandwiches to take along. Since the bait shop is located near the fishing grounds, it makes for a great place to break for a short lunch on our full day trips.

Directions to New Pass Bait Shop:

From US 41 (also called Tamiami Trail)– continue North or South to the downtown area of Sarasota. At the intersection of US 41 and Gulf Stream (also Ringling blvd) turn west and take this over the bridge into St. Armands Circle. After turning into the circle, you take the first right out of the circle following the signs to Longboat Key. Continue North to the first light at the Ken Thompson Parkway and turn right. The New Pass Bait shop is the first place on the left. Parking for fishing charters is on the west side of the building near the base of the bridge.
