Crossbay Master Bait and Tackle was established in 1956 in a small two car garage on Crossbay Blvd., in Howard Beach. As the recreational fishing industry grew so did the business, and in 1991 we moved from the old location into a beautiful 2,200 sq ft store on Crossbay Blvd. (located just a half block north of the North Channel Bridge.  

Our Goal is to provide our customers with the freshest bait possible. We carry blood worms, sand worms, and earth worms. We also have fresh Bunker (delivered daily), and fresh shucked skimmer clams (also delivered daily). In the spring we stock fresh mussels for those delicious winter flounders and in the fall we have live bass eels to lure those trophy striped bass. Also in the fall we have live  bass eels to lure those trophy striped bass. The  shop is always filled with live fiddler crabs, live green crabs, and last year we added live hermit crabs for blackfish.

In addition to all of our fresh bait, we carry a wide variety of high quality frozen bait. Some of our frozen baits are: Spearing (large & small), squid (local & California), peruvian smelts, baby bunker, mackerel, herring, sand eels, frozen bunker, frozen clams, and chum (bunker & clam).

We have one of the largess selections of rods and reels in queens. Some of the brands of rods we carry are: Daiwa, Tsunami, Tica, Seeker, Penn, Shimano, Okuma, Pinnacle, and Shakespeare. Some of the spinning and conventional reels we carry are: Penn, Shimano, Daiwa, Okuma, Tica, Jarvis Walker, US Reel, Pinnacle and Avet.
