Rich History

Deamus Hart started Hart’s Landing in 1934 with a 100 foot seine net, a bottle of Jack Daniels whiskey, and a bonfire on the beach at Golden Gate Point. The seine net was used to catch shrimp. The bonfire was used as a light to attract shrimp to the net, and Deamus used the Jack Daniels whiskey to keep himself warm in the cool spring night.

Preserving Legacies

With almost 100 years in business, Hart's Landing continues to be a favorite spot for locals and tourists who have visited the bait shop for generations.
