I am no expert, but I will bait my hooks w/ Sand Fleas, Peeled Shrimp, or Fish Bites, they all catch fish, just some days they prefer one over other. Sometimes I use a Fishbites & a Sand Flea, seems to work, too.

Last weekend in Destin the fish seemed to like all equally well.

In that area I have noticed a divide, shimp gets eating fish and fishbites get the rod bent. The last 3 times I fished out there I got pomps and eater sized black drum on fresh peeled shrimp, and big uglies and bull reds on fish bites.

Of the common surf baits, they are always in the mix. Some days they wont work. Most days they will. The biggest advantage of using them is their durability. You dont have to worry about casting them off and you dont have to do bait checks as often.

You probably weren't the only one.

Did you see other people catching fish?

It was hit or miss most of last week.

Water isn't very warm & the winds are brisk.

Don't give up on Fishbites just yet.

Put them in the fridge and try other baits.

They'll keep for quite a while.

You're supposed to refrigerate Fish Bites?
