At Keys Maritime bait and tackle store in Marathon, we house our fish in large aerated tanks and pens, feeding them daily and handling them minimally, so they’re fresh on your line. We know you take fishing seriously, we do too. It’s our goal to provide you with the highest quality customer service and the best deals in the area so you can spend more time relaxing on the water.
We’re known around the Marathon area for maintaining a variety of live baits, and always stocking pilchards! In fact, it’s kind of our specialty. We carry most major types of frozen bait and several brands of chum, even specialty items like chum balls, oats, and pre-rigged ballyhoo and squid! Keys Maritime Tackle shop has everything you need to get fishing right away- bubblers, buckets, a great variety of hooks and weights, leader, fishing line, and much, much, more! See for yourself!
