Fishbites are the result of a lifelong passion for fishing and decades of scientific research. Fishbites is a family-owned business founded in 2000 in St. Augustine, Florida, by avid angler and world renowned marine researcher Dr. William Carr and members of his family.
Fishbites use a concentrated formula that replicates the natural chemicals fish use to detect and track their prey. Fishbites gradually dissolve in water, releasing a trail of powerful feeding stimulants. When fish bite they hold on longer because the flavor and texture is similar to their natural prey, offering anglers more chances to set the hook. Fishbites have caught more than 85 species of saltwater fish and counting including drum, flounder, black sea bass, porgies, kingfish and more.
Fishbites are always ready to go. Anglers can get out on the water sooner because they won’t have to make a trek to the bait store. They can be used just as they are or cut up in any shape or size. They also supplement the effectiveness of lures, flies, and even live bait. They’re a great idea for new anglers, who can be skittish about handling live or natural baits.
Fishbites require no refrigeration and they retain their scent and durability for at least a year when properly stored. Fishbites are not easily stripped off the hook; they’re designed to withstand bait stealers, numerous strikes, and long casts far out-performing live and natural bait in this manner. They allow anglers to spend less time re-baiting and more time with a line out. Fishbites scents are sure to lure fish but they’re barely perceptible to humans. Anglers can forgo the strong, lingering odors of natural baits in a non-toxic, biodegradable, environmentally friendly product. Fish can digest Fishbites without any harmful side effects, unlike many other natural bait alternatives. The Fishbites original mission is still the same today: provide effective baits for all types of fishing at a reasonable cost to your wallet and at almost NO cost to the environment.

E-Z Baits, Fish’n Strips, Fish’n Chunks and Bag O’ Worms are available in both “Fast Acting” and “Longer Lasting” formulas and provide the perfect alternative to natural strip baits. The Longer Lasting formula features a cloth binder in the middle of the bait that keeps it on the hook despite the efforts of notoriously toothy bait stealers. The Fast Acting formula is made with a special fiber-infused gel that gets the flavor/scent dispersed quickly into the water column. There is no cloth mesh in the center so once the bait is gone, you’re ready to re-bait instantly without removing any residues. Available in a variety of sizes, shapes and package counts depending on specific product, they range in price from $4.87 – $9.69.
