The BEST ALL-IN-ONE Fishing Bait!

This is truly a unique fishing bait with many functions. Cut your own lures out using our naturally scented, tough, salt-preserved squid bait. You will be surprised how well it works. The Squid works well as bait OR used as a lure/trailer. It gives fishermen an opportunity to get creative with the way they use their bait. It stays perfectly preserved in room temps for MONTHS. No more stinky cars! No more rotten smells coming from your bags!

IDEAL FOR ALL FISHING: Surf Fishing, Pier Fishing, Jetty Fishing, Freshwater Fishing, Deep Sea Fishing, you name it!

Squidy Bits was created because we were tired of small fish ripping off our soft, expensive bloodworms and we wanted something that wouldn’t stink and go bad if we forgot it in our bag. Thus, Squidy Bits was born, and it is much more than we could have ever imagined it to be!

SQUIDY BITS FAQ’S

How long before they go bad?

As with any bait, the fresher the better!  However, they will last in the fridge for up to a year. We recommend getting a new bag of bait after 3 months or after the fishing season has ended. As long as the bait does not look mushy or smell putrid, it is still good to use.

Do Salty Bits need to be refrigerated?

It is not necessary to refrigerate your bait; however, we recommend that if you want to keep it as fresh as possible, keep your bait in the fridge until you go fishing. It’s always best to keep your bait in a cool, dark area out of direct sunlight.

How do I use the Squidy Bits?

Squidy Bits are fairly simple to use. They are a MESS-FREE, ACTION PACKED bait that can be used on LURES or simply BAITED on a hook. And our favorite part: it’s environmentally friendly with no mesh or plastic. How you use Squidy Bits also depends on which type you choose. We like to use the Salty Jiggin’ Tentacles to tip on the end of jig heads and other lures as a replacement for soft plastics. Jumbo Slabs are unique because they allow the angler to cut pieces and shapes specific to the lure or rig they are using. Our favorite way to use the Jumbo Slabs is to cut them into triangle shapes or forks and fish them on the end of bucktails. You can get creative with this bait! Another favorite use of the Jumbo Slabs is in combination with other softer baits on rigged hooks with sinkers. This bait shines because it cannot be pulled off the hook, so if you feel a bite you can leave your line in the water, knowing you still have bait. Check out our exclusive content page to watch videos on how we recommend to use the Squidy Bits. 

How do I use the Shrimpy Bits?

Shrimpy bits are used in the same way we use a fresh shrimp. We find it works perfectly on high-low rigs using a 1/0-2/0 circle hook. Unlike the Squidy Bits, we use this bait almost exclusively on bottom fishing rigs. It works very well as a bait saver- small fish have a hard time stealing this bait. Use Shrimpy Bits in combination with fresh bait for best results! If your soft fresh bait gets pecked off by small fish, your Shrimpy Bits will still be there to save the hassle of bringing your line back in to re-bait. Spend more time fishing, less time re-baiting. This bait is also perfect for charter boats and offshore drop fishing. Instead of having to pull up 200 feet of line every time you get a small bite, you can leave your bait on the bottom and set the hook on the fish that count. 

How do I use the Clammy Bits? 

Clammy Bits are used in the same way we use a fresh clam. We find it works perfectly on high-low rigs using a 1/0-2/0 circle hook and other bottom rigs such as the fish finder rig. Unlike the Squidy Bits, we use this bait almost exclusively on the bottom. You can cut the clam into smaller pieces or put the entire clam on a 5/o hook to target bigger fish. It works very well as a bait saver- small fish have a hard time stealing this bait. Use Clammy Bits in combination with fresh bait for best results! If your soft fresh bait gets pecked off by small fish, your Clammy Bits will still be there to save the hassle of bringing your line back in to re-bait. Spend more time fishing, less time re-baiting. This bait is also perfect for charter boats and offshore drop fishing. Instead of having to pull up 200 feet of line every time you get a small bite, you can leave your bait on the bottom and set the hook on the fish that count. 

Which bait works best?

Just like with any bait, the one that works best depends on what the fish are in the mood for that day. We bring multiple different baits with us every time we go to the beach because sometimes fish like one thing and the next day they want another. We have experienced this many times while using both salty and fresh baits. Ultimately, it’s best to bring as many different baits as possible and figure out what the fish are biting today. We like to use the Shrimpy Bits and Clammy Bits on bottom rigs while the squid is perfect to use as a lure trailer. It all depends on what you are fishing for and how.

What do they smell like?

All of our salted baits are packed with a natural scent that fish go crazy for. To us, they smell like fish food. We are currently experimenting with scent; keep in mind that the scent can fluctuate from batch to batch.
