Yes there is a bait store right at the marina in KCB. It is on the causeway. It has frozen bait.

Right around the corner from KCB on US 1 just over Vaca Cut is a place called Big Time Bait. They rent poles, you can buy a license, all kinds of bait, every piece of tackle you may need. (You can go online and buy your fishing license. You can buy it for the time period you want and get it mailed to you ahead oftime).

I went online and bought a chart. Don't remember the price, don't remember the site, BUT I do remember that I have the chart . . .

There are 2 more spots a little further down US 1. Boaters World that has all kinds of stuff - clothes, lines, oil, lines, (its a fun place to hang out) and World Class Angler that has all kinds of fishing stuff as well.

Hope this helps.

Buffetguy said it all.

KCB Marina has live bait as well. Big Time has a good inventory of rods etc.

Where can you get the fishing license in KCB if you don't get them online. We will be there in August and my husband, son, and son-in-law will be wanting to do some fishing. I guess they do actually need them right??

Yes, they will need a fishing lic. (Unless they are with a charter). You can buy them online and they will mail them to you. KCB doesn't have anyplace to buy them. Big Time Bait and Kmart sell them. You can also call it in.
