About Us


Shop Local

Established in 1995, Water Tower Bait and Tackle is a family owned and operated local business.  Stockists of Live Worms, a large range of frozen baits, lures, ice, fishing tackle, rods and reels we source as much as possible from local suppliers.  We also have Swap n Go exchange gas bottles as well as being able to refill your existing gas bottle while you wait.


Looking for Something Different?

We have a good range of Shark Fishing Tackle including hooks and rigs up to 24/0 size.

Trolling for School Mackeral in Moreton Bay, we stock Paravanes, Smiths Jigs and Makka or Halco Spoons.

Ever heard of Skutes?  They are locally produced and a hybrid of a fly and jig head.   They are proven from the shore on estuary species particularly flathead and bream as well as from boats and kayaks on species such as squire and mackeral.


Live Blood Worms

Arguably the best local bait for fishing for whiting, live bloodworms are also great bait for bream and flathead.   Harvested locally on a daily basis they are always fresh.  Given their popularity we are happy to take pre-orders to avoid supply disappointment. Please note that the prawn white spot restrictions also apply to the movment of Live Bloodworms.
