Clammy Bits — Salted Clam — Fishing Bait


Our newest addition in our salted bait lineup! Stop dealing with messy, mushy, stinky, frozen clams and try our freshly preserved Clammy Bits for a great day of fishing! These special clams are tough as nails and one piece will easily last for multiple fish. Their natural red color is a proven fish attractant, perfect for adding to your hook to increase your chance of catching fish.

These are mess-free clams that we hand-salt in a special dry brine mixture. All the natural scents of a real clam are preserved within this dry salted version. As soon as the clam hits the water, it starts to take in moisture again and release a cloud of clammy scent! Each pack will come with 6-7 freshly salted clams in our special salt mixture. We’ve been experimenting with this bait for over a year and a half to get it to this point and we hope you enjoy using it as much as we have!

Use whole for targeting bigger fish, or cut it into smaller pieces for medium-small fish.

While our bait is naturally preserved with salt, for best results and long-term storage please refrigerate your bait when not in use.

Clammy Bits

Clammy Bits are successful for both saltwater and freshwater species of fish. It all depends on how you use the bait. Cut off a piece of clam that will easily fit in the mouth of the fish you are targeting. For fish such as pompano, trout, redfish, drum, whiting or other species, use a piece that is sized accordingly. Hook the bait on a high-low rig, a bottom rig, or simply drift it with split shot or a float. You can also checkout our brand new E-book: How To Use Clammy Bits which goes into detail on how to use shrimp, and how to rig it up.
