Squidy bits Clam bits

I have been known to tell it the way it is. I had the pleasure to put squidy bits and clam bits to the test again regular squid and clams when fishing for bottom fish in the northeast. The heyskipper product(squidybits clambits) out fished the natural bait. It stays on the hook longer which increases you catch rate. Also you don’t have to freeze it so it can stay on the boat in the sealed container they provide. Highly recommend this product. ��☘️������

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!!


Hey Skipper Official Store

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!
