The only two I can think of are Burdines Marina, and I am not sure if they even sell anymore, and Capt Hooks by Vaca Cut bridge.

The marina beside burdines had a sign advertising bait today. Not sure if it’s live or frozen.

Not sure why you don’t want to drive? It’s not that busy in Marathon. For chum and squid you can get to Smith Auto by water. Cheap gas too.

There is one on the North Side of Sadowski in KCB..right next to where the old Sparky’s was located and Main Attraction Charter Boats.
Not the selection of Captain’s Hooks...but they have gas, chum live/frozen bait...and you don’t have to deal w/ the current of Vaca Cut—easy in/easy out.

Marathon Bait & Tackle always treat me well down there. Not on the water, but give you good reports.
