Tarpon Trading Company
It’s a Bait Shop. It’s a Tackle Store. It’s a Way of Life!
Our logo really defines what we aspire to be “A Bait Shop, A Tackle Store, A way of Life”. It is our mission not just to sell you bait or help you select the right equipment but to bring it all together in a way that reflects the lifestyle that brought us all to the water and a life of sun, sand and salt!
A Bait Shop – The Tarpon Trading Company offers a large selection of live, frozen and artificial baits. On the “Live” side we offer shrimp in three sizes, Regular, Hand Picked and Select (When Available). Pinfish are our baitfish of choice and we take great pride in being in stock with our live baits! All are delivered 7 days a week and stored in our 6 chilled, rock filtered tanks for the freshest liveliest bait out there! We also carry a large selection of frozen baits like Shrimp, Sardines, Whole Black Mullet, Finger Mullet, Squid, Chum, Threadfins and Ballyhoo (Rigged and unrigged). Most are available in multiple sizes so we have you covered for a quick trip to the flats or a long run to the Elbow!
A Tackle Store – At the Tarpon Trading Company we take great pride in the upgrades we have made to our tackle selection. We currently offer the best brands in the industry like Shimano, Penn and Ohero Rods and Reels! Add to that a 30’ long by 8’ high tackle wall filled with the latest and greatest in terminal tackle, soft and hard baits, Line and accessories! Old Salts or first timers will find our combination of products for all levels and our friendly, knowledgeable staff a winning combination!
A Way of Life – Apparel, Hats, Sunscreen, Beverages and Snacks are all-critical for a great day on the water!
