Clammy Bits

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 7-9 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.

Small fish can’t rip this bait off. STOP spending so much time re-baiting your line and start spending more time actually fishing! Set the hook on the fish that count with Hey Skipper Salty Bits Bait! Our bait is tough, stays on the hook, and attracts fish with natural scent and flavor.

This is a classic bait that has been working for anglers all over the world for many years, and we are proud to continue the tradition.

Our bait is artisanally made by hand using our special salting technique. We have carefully and systematically created a process that beautifully preserves the bait so that it can sit in the open air without becoming stinky, smelly, mushy, squishy, or leaky. We are just a small business and we put extra time and care into creating the best bait possible. Every bag of bait you purchase is directly produced by Brendon & Erin, made and hand- packaged in Maryland, USA.

Clammy Bits are freshly preserved fishing bait with a gorgeous, natural red color combies with a juicy scent that fish can’t resist. These clams are better than their frozen counterparts because frozen clams get mushy and fall off the hook. Our bait is tough, stays on the hook, and still attracts fish with natural scent and flavor. 


Clammy Bits work great for both saltwater and freshwater species of fish. It all depends on how you use the bait.

Cut 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 (my favorite method), a bottom rig, or simply drift it with a split shot or a float.

We personally love using these in combination with other fresh, softer baits such as shrimp or cut baitfish. The red color of the clam is a proven fish attractant, and they’re super tough so they hold the bait on your hook well.

Clammy bits near Galveston

I used Clammy Bits with considerable success, by themselves and to supplement cut frozen squid, in the surf near Galveston, Texas. Several species in the Gulf seem to like them just as well as East Coast fish do.
