Bill Jackson’s has a wide range of fishing tackle for freshwater and saltwater anglers. So if you’re chasing bass on the lakes, snook and redfish along the shorelines or migrating kingfish offshore, we have the gear and know-how to get you hooked up.

Bill Jackson’s fishing shack is also you’re one-stop shop for fly-fishing rods, reels, flies, lines, tying materials and expert casting instruction. We host classes on tying several times a month and offer both group and private casting lessons.

Our staff of experienced staff members fish the area like crazy in their off-hours, so they can help you with rod-reel-line setups, knot tying, lure selection and insight on how to catch prized Florida game fish.
