View Full Version : Where to buy live bait in Ventura/Oxnard area

Hey guys,

I want to buy some live bait but I'm not sure where to go. Do you have any recommendations? I want to get a 1/2 scoop of sardines in an ice chest.

There is live bait for sale on the dock right in front of Channel Islands sportfishing on Victoria. I have bought bait on my kayak but I have not just walked up to the dock. I am sure if you ask someone at the sport fishing operation, they can tell you who to talk to.

There's also a bait dock over in Ventura Harbor next door to the launch ramp.
I think that it's called Dave's Fuel Services, but they also have live bait

Best to call first to see what flavor they have

Wolf359 is correct. Just go to Channel Island Sportfishing. The minimum is a $10 scoop...roughly 75 dines.

Hi there!
I realize this is an old thread but just wanted to put it out there that we do have live bait available at Channel Islands Sportfishing Center (aka CISCOS).
