Default ???? where to buy octopus for bait?

Can anyone tell me where to puchase octopus to use for bait, around Pensacola/orange Beach area?

Couple of years ago,I pulled up a red snapper in the 20 plus pound range,and while unhooking he spit out an octopus the size of my fist.I immediatly hooked the octopus and dropped it back down and wow another NICE snapper.

Just thought I would try using octopus this year along with everything else. I found a place on the web,but it would come from Alaska,to much cost with the shipping,etc. Thanks for the replies, Tony

Don't take this the wrong way, but you sure as hell don't need to use octopus as bait to catch red snapper. They'd pretty much eat the ass end of a cigar if you put it in their face.

Yup, Joe Pattis has them from time to time and I bet you could get either Outcast or Hot Spots to order them for you if you asked pretty please.



Cobia love 'em too!!!

Believe it or not, I saw octopi in the Ft. Walton Beach Walmart seafood section... I was walking by, and it surprised the heck out of me. I wouldn't eat any seafood from there, but I might eat the seafood that ate the seafood from there if you used it for bait They were (obviously) deceased, but if you're ok with dead bait, it's an option. Probably as cheap as frozen bait.
