Product Review: Fishbites 6-Inch Grub - The Fisherman

Product Review: Fishbites 6-Inch Grub

If you’re going out fluke fishing during the month of September and searching for that fish of a lifetime you have a great shot during this final homestretch in the season. Throughout the years, the month has produced flatties in excess of 10 pounds for anglers fishing the right baits in the right areas. Part of the reason why these fish show up is the mass movement of so much bait – and larger baits for that matter – out of the bays and harbors with the fluke right on their trail.

From my own experience and those of many others, these bigger baits seem to gather the attention of those jumbos laying on the bottom as we drift over them. Fishbites has you covered when you want to go big for a big fluke. The 6-inch Grub offers a much larger profile than the already proven 5-inch model and is a solid choice for the early fall months when the doormats are keyed in the bigger profile fish.


Take the 6-inch Fishbites Grub and use it as a trailer on your favorite fluke bucktail, hi-lo rig or simple hook, line and sinker setup. When drifting, the curly tail on this big grub has great action and will catch the eye of any fluke it passes by. These grubs are also loaded with extreme scent that leaves a trail in the water and keeps fish right behind them wanting to find out more. They also offer great durability with their special all-natural formula that gives the baits added life, in comparison to synthetic baits.

You can find these fish-catchers in five different color schemes that have all worked exceptionally well on fluke from Delaware all the way up through the New England region. The large grubs come four to a bag and have a MSRP of $6.99.
