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!


Shrimpy 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 shrimp 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 Shrimpy Bits which goes into detail on how to use shrimp, and how to rig it up.

    Great bait!

    After watching a TON of your videos on YouTube, I just had to try it out. I love the bait box it comes with! It's waterproof and keeps the bait secure while I'm driving to my fishing spot. I love the fact that I don't 100% have to keep it cold neither. I hook it up to my tackle backpack and hike down the beach, ready to fish!! The bait it comes with it awesome!! So firm and rarely EVER flies off the hook! Fishing is a little rough this summer for me (I'm a beginner), but for the most part, I get some banging bites!!! The salt mixture also kept other baits that I had firm too. I left some cut bait in the box for a week, and I was surprised at how firm it got just from sitting in the box. I love this product and have been telling everyone about it!!

    Hi Samantha! Thank you for your support! It means a lot to us. We are glad you are happy with our Ultimate Starter Kit and even told people about it! Best of luck on your next fishing trip! Stay safe and tight lines!


    Great Product!

    I live on the NC coast and fish both surf and sound sides, land based and from my kayak, all year long. I�ll say these are all around great products! A very good investment for beginners and seasoned anglers. Starting with the box; great size for storage of all my salted baits, fits well in my kayak, tough enough for the surf, durable enough for cutting on and stores well in my minifridge when not being used. And the salted baits; they stay on my hooks longer, help hold other fresh cut baits on my hooks, can stand alone as the bait and can be utilized as a jig presentation enhancer/teaser. They have even replaced many popular artificial �strips� in my tackle bag. I have caught many different species and lots of �em using my Squidy and Shrimpy Bits! Keep up the good work guys!
