Songwriters Series & More Music at Stinky’s Bait Shack

June 1, 2022 by Abby Eller

Stinky’s Fish Camp and Stinky’s Bait Shack have supported, promoted, and featured local South Walton music legends, as well as traveling musicians, for over 15 years. The new Songwriter Performance Series is an extension of that beloved music heritage. However, instead of the lively honky-tonk atmosphere we are accustomed to in the funky little shack, Tim Jackson’s Songwriters Performance Series LIVE @ Stinky’s Bait Shack provides music-lovers of all ages with a more intimate experience.

“This listening room experience is so cool. We are honored to be the venue and love to share the magic of this event with our loyal Stinky’s fanbase. Having Tim Jackson as a partner and friend is like being connected to the heartbeat of great music,” says owner Chef Jim Richard.

See schedule and purchase tickets in advance for all events at If you prefer to purchase your tickets in person, you are welcome to head down to the Bait Shack located on the west end of 30A on the shores of Lake Allen in Dune Allen Beach, Florida.

Tim Jackson has written and performed songs for five decades. He  lives a life filled with extraordinary people, twists of fate, and stories that inspire a wide-ranging body of musical works. His love of his craft, generous nature and willingness to help fellow artists has led to the creation of this intimate music series. Every Wednesday and Thursday night from 8-10PM he introduces audiences to talented storytellers, sharing their original live music.

“I am not interested in hit songs or how many awards someone may have. That’s great and all, but what matters most to me is that the storyteller and the audience have a chance to genuinely connect. I have had strangers come to me after a performance to share their own stories in response to something shared on stage. It’s authenticity and purpose we seek beyond fame or fortune,” says Jackson.

He has tirelessly procured talent from all over the world to perform for his Songwriters Series. When not performing, Jackson is methodically pacing the shack expertly balancing the sound system to create the highest-quality performance possible. Tim will be bringing national recording artists to takeover the Stinky’s Bait Shack stage on Wednesday and Thursday evening throughout 2022. Attendees will enjoy two-hours of songs and storytelling then a meet & greet at the end or the night’s performance.
