Billings Bait & Tackle
Aside from enjoying a perfect vantage point for some of the best sunrises and sunsets in the area, this old-school bait stand is convenient for both boats and autos. Just pull up to the dock or drive down under the JFK Causeway (northbound side) and let them set you up with croakers, shrimp, and other goodies with all the fixin's from the bait well plus any last-minute hooks, lines or sinkers you might need.
