The Dunedin Causeway crosses over St. Joseph Sound linking the mainland at US Hwy Alt 19 to Honeymoon Island State Park.  The Causeway is a bit over two miles long with two bridges, and beaches on both sides, where anglers can fish from shore or wade out to find their piscatorial prey, small boaters and kayakers can launch their vessels, and families can play in the sun and water. Many of the nicest fish we've seen at Barracuda Bob's have come from the Causeway! Parking is FREE, there's a great bicycle and walking trail, and it's a great spot from which to watch the sunsets.

hurricane pass

Divides Honeymoon and Caladesi islands, providing boaters with an instant exit to the offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Gulf beaches, and anglers access to the many big game species that cruise the Gulf.  The pass also allows fresh, clean Gulf waters to flow into St. Joseph Sound with every incoming tide, offering boaters and shore bound anglers alike excellent opportunities to snag trophy game fish right off the beach.  Passenger ferry service links Honeymoon and Caladesi Islands.

Located on the Dunedin Causeway; gateway to the productive backwaters of Clearwater Bay and St. Joseph Sound, Honeymoon and Caladesi Islands, and the gulf beaches; Barracuda Bob's is your one stop shop for all of your bait, tackle and beach supply needs before heading out for a great day of fishing, boating or just beaching it and relaxing in the sun with an ice cold beverage.

Pet Beach, located on Hurricane Pass at the southern end of Honeymoon Island, is a popular spot for surf fisherman and waders, and while many species of big game fish of all kinds are regularly caught here year around, it is famous for the big, trophy Snook that gather in the pass every spring and summer to fatten up before heading offshore to spawn.                   

This is also the only beach anywhere around where pets are welcome, so dog lovers regularly bring their furry friends here for long walks on the beach and to romp in the clear Gulf waters.

Our coastal Environment

The clear green waters of Clearwater Bay and St. Joseph Sound are an angler's paradise with miles and miles of lush, shallow grass flats, rocky oyster bars, numerous spoil islands, shaded mangrove shorelines and barrier island beaches that are havens for big game fish of all kinds.  Whether you're fishing from a boat or kayak, or just want to wade out or fish from shore on one of our many beaches or bridges, this area offers some of the finest saltwater sport fishing on Florida's west coast.  Our area is world famous for big tarpon and snook!

Barracuda Bob's has moved and changed our name to reflect our new beach and water themes.
