Fishbites Bait Ultimate Review [VIDEO]
Fishbites baits have definitely been a game-changer for surf anglers.
And that’s because of what really sets these baits apart from the rest.
The Science Behind Fishbites Baits
Dr. Carr, the inventor of Fishbites, spent 30 years creating the scent technology that is infused evenly throughout the baits.
Fishbites are synthetic baits that mimic natural bait.
The ingredients act as a natural feeding stimulant for fish.
And it’s concentrated so that scent lasts for the life of the bait.
Pros & Cons Of Fishbites
Pros Of Fishbites
- They are incredibly long-lasting and Fishbites stay on the hook perfectly
- You can catch a ton of fish on one piece of Fishbites (and you can even catch them on the mesh)
- Manufactured and distributed here in Florida
- Fishbites are biodegradable
- If you don’t want the mess and smell of live bait, there’s little to no clean-up
Cons Of Fishbites
- Fishbites are super tough and can be hard to get off of the hook.
- You actually have to cut them off with scissors or a knife. Please do not use your teeth!
- If you do not store your Fishbites properly, they may lose some color or pliability (but if you keep the packages sealed and at room temperature, they’ll last for a very long time. You can even refrigerate Fishbites!)
How To Use Fishbites
The most important thing to remember when using Fishbites is you don’t need a huge piece to catch fish.
I like to use the fingernail rule and matching the size of the bait to your hook.
On most days, you won’t need a piece of Fishbites that’s bigger than your fingernail.
If you need more scent in the water because of conditions, you can use a larger piece of bait.
But you’ll want to thread it on the hook so that it stays in place.
The fast-acting formula is meant for sight fishing or actively fishing.
You can make a simple fish finder rig with a small egg sinker, a swivel, and a small piece of Fishbites.
Simply work that bait on the bottom as you retrieve.
This is a great way to utilize your lighter inshore gear on the beach!
The long-lasting formula is better for the “soak bait and wait” type of surf fishing.
If fishing in heavy current or high surf, this is the go-to Fishbites formula.
It’s also very resistant to bait stealers!

Go ahead and pre-cut your Fishbites pieces and store them in their sealed package.
How To Choose Your Fishbites
Match the hatch.
Just as you would with live baits, you’ll want to use the Fishbites that match up to the bait in your area and what species you are targeting.
For example, right now the Pink Shrimp, Coquina Clam, and Sand Flea Fishbites are performing extremely well for Whiting and Pompano.
If pairing Fishbites with live baits, try to match them up.
A chunk of shrimp with shrimp Fishbites.
Crab knuckles with crab Fishbites.
And so on.
It doesn’t really matter if you put Fishbites on the hook before or after the natural baits.
But if you are using clam or crab knuckles, it might be best to put the Fishbites on after because it does help that bait stay in place on the hook.
If you want an easy, no mess bait then I would definitely check out Fishbites.
They’re super durable, long-lasting, and they catch a ton of fish!
