Great lil bait shop but the fishing was fun. The bait shop has live shrimp and other light tackle. The have some ac and cold drinks. The ac and cold drinks are a welcomed sight after a full day of fishing. Nice place to relax with the captain and mate are cleaning the fish from the days catch. Thank you for having a welcoming and friendly staff. The lady was new but fantastic!

I met a friend under the bridge here after watching the Christmas boat parade in sarasota. There is a large area which includes plenty of room to bring chairs and watch the bands and also a play area for kids. There are only a few seats available on the pier. There is a tackle shop that has a few beer and wine options and limited food items. Parking spots are available on site.

Must stop here. Much to do and see. Sits on the Southeast side of Sarasota Florida. Many birds and fish along with grand playground right there with shade. Live or frozen bait-drinks-food! Lots of boat traffic along with people fishing. Looks over Sarasota’s skyline. Birds that soar like eagles and Osprey along with many pelicans/ egret. It is a family - friends - kids place to Good morning Sarasota Florida at sunrise 8am walk over bridge.

This place is lovely and there is a little bit for everyone. Get here early as there are about 21 car spots and two handicapped parking spots. There is a sunny pier and covered fishing spots available. Nice breeze under the bridge. A half block away is a shop for restrooms, fish bait, plain subs, ice cream, chips, pop, and water. There is a covered gazebo for moms to sit, and a park for the youngins not interested in fishing. Great family place.

A Great Bait Shop, wonderful place to chill, and an AMAZING music venue! LOCALLY OWNED, LOCALLY RUN! We had a spectacular evening last Saturday enjoying a great band while the sun set into the Gulf, with the city lights twinkling over the water, pelicans fishing off the dock, kayaks paddling by and fishing boats coming in for the night. Wrap around water views complete the great vibe of wonderful music, the park under the Ringling provides plenty of space for us spectators, everyone was having fun, some dancing, some performing hula hoops, some fishing, kayaking, enjoying a picnic or just listening. Ship of Fools took over the evening with incredible sets! We never felt crowded ! Getting in and out of the small parking area is a bit slow, so we parked at the Bayfront park area ( no time limit on parking after 8 PM) and took an easy stroll over to Hart’s Landing. There is no cover charge for the great outdoor music on Saturday nights. The owner and his daughter started managing these concerts as a labor of love. They are proud to be part of our local community, which explains the great authentic vibe of the shop. I looked up the history of this bait shop, which goes back in time to a local fisherman - a great read! A free will donation helps to defray expenses, as well as purchases of beverages and food from the bait shop. They also rent kayaks and this looks like a wonderful location to put in and paddle the Sarasota city shores! Indoor rest rooms are available. I love stopping here when I am riding my bike or walking the Ringling bridge. The park is charming with great, safe play equipment and places to sit.
