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.

Squidy Bits are a unique bait that attracts a very wide variety of fish. Cut off a strip of Squid Slab and put it on the end of your buck-tail or jig head, or simply rig a tentacle on the hook. You can really get creative with this bait. Whether you are fishing from a boat, the surf, a pier, a jetty; whether it’s freshwater or saltwater, using Squidy Bits will surprise you every time! A great bait to have in your tackle bag. 


Salty Bits works great for both salt water and fresh water species of fish. It all depends on how you use the bait. 

Perfect for hook-and-sinker fishermen: Hook the bait on a high-low rig, a bottom rig, or simply drift it with split shot. It all depends on the structure you are fishing!

For those lure fishermen out there: the squid works phenomenally as a trailer. It is full of scent and moves very naturally in the water. Attach tentacles to a jig head, or a buck-tail jig and try jigging for some monsters!

Love, love, love this product. I always have bait on hand. The bait stays on the hook every time. And the bait box is fantastic. Keeps bait dry in rainy weather. Highly recommend.

Hi Bob! Thank you very much for supporting Hey Skipper! We are happy to hear you love our Squidy Bits Starter Kit! We recommend you check out our Clammy Bits and Shrimpy Bits! They stay on the hook and are just as tough as our Squidy Bits line! Best of luck out there! Stay safe and tight lines!

Love it

Great staying power and worked well in the salt water of Florida. The case is the perfect size , water tight and easy to throw in with the rest of your tackle. A little bit of squidy bits goes a long way!
