Where to Buy Live Shrimp in New Orleans and Louisiana Shrimp Season 2013 is Underway

Live shrimp are by far the most effective bait I use, even more so than dead bait. Be sure to have your aerator ready to keep los camarones alive and wigglin’!Here are a few local (in New Orleans) bait shops which will have live shrimp:

A place I have been going since a youth-

Bait Inc

Paris Road at Bayou Bienvenue

(504) 277-3755. Call them ahead of time.

Seabrook Marina

France Road next to Pontchartrain Landing

(504) 283-6001

Chef Pass Bait Shop

This place is right past the Chef Pass Bridge to its north. These people have bait but I do not have their phone number.

Gulf Outlet Marina Boat Launch

In St. Bernard Parish off of Paris Rd. not far from Bait Inc. and behind the hotel.

(504) 304-9598

Live shrimp season is here as well!

Now go wear em out!
