Fishing action

We are looking for a bit of fishing action in late March 2012. Is there a bait shop anyone can recommend? Seems like Nomomis has a choice of fresh or saltwater, any thoughts on which to choose?

What about offshore in March, is there any action?

Is there a place we can rent saltwater gear locally?

I recommend Mahi Mac's Bait and Tackle on US 41 at Nippino Trail in Nokomis. They also rent gear. From their site:

1011 South Tamiami Trail, Nokomis, FL 34275


Mon - Wed: 6:00 am - 6:00 pm

Thu: 6:00 am - 6:00 am

Fri - Sun: 6:00 am - 6:00 pm


Mahi Mac's Bait & Tackle shop is located on US41 in Nokomis, Florida, just south of Colonia Lane. Open 7 days a week from 6am to 6pm. New and used fishing tackle. Brands include Penn, Shimano, Daiwa and more. Best live bait around including Tarpon crabs, live shrimp and pinfish.
