New Pass Bait Shop (our main location)
1505 Ken Thompson Pkwy – Sarasota, FL 34236
(Click for directions to New Pass Bait Shop)

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.
