Stinky's Bait Shack

Nestled just across the street from the beautiful beaches of South Walton, Stinky's Bait Shack is Highway 30A's only live bait retailer & outfitter. Half favorite local bar and half fishing and bait fun shop, Stinky's Bait Shack is a longtime favorite hangout in South Walton.

The famous restaurant, Stinky's Fish Camp, is located right next-door and The Shack has become a staple stop for those wanting the notorious Stinky's Fish Camp & Bait Shack gear and merchandise. They even have ukuleles.

It's also the place to be for great music by some of South Walton's finest artists. Watch for special performances from some of our favorite artists from New Orleans and beyond. On Friday nights you can jam with local legends TK & Duke Bardwell for a fun night of live music, fish tales, Stink Juice and a guaranteed good time. Check the SoWal Live Music Calendar for the current lineup.​

The Bait Shack is a true outfitter that will have you prepared for all aspects of a day on or near the water. They carry a variety of tackle, live bait, and frozen bait. The knowledgeable and genuinely friendly staff will help you find all the right gear for your fishing adventures. They will even charter your trip!

Stinky's Fishing Charters has experienced Captains that will guide you through the Choctawhatchee Bay in search of trout, redfish, and many other species. You can practice catch and release, and if you opt to keep your catch the boat crew will clean and pack it for travel. Visit StinkysFishingCharters.com for more information.
