I just snip them off with my braid scissors.

I grab them with pliers and pull. They will rip off

U are talking about the membrane left after the good stuff eventually melts away, or the fish destroy it. Yes, pliers are best. Using a knife requires you backing the blade with said thumb, and while that does work, it can end badly as I can attest to.

Actually, the most-difficult fishbites to remove are the ones still gooey. It's a pain to get them off when putting away gear at the end of a day of fishing. I've been using a knife with a needle-like tip, but it isn't satisfactory. Pliers often end up slinging the goo as the mesh rips, and takes quite a tug if the fishbites are hooked twice.

I bought a pack last week that doesn't have mesh. I don't like it, it melts right off the hook. Was more like a loose felt

I hope they didn't change the recipe again. 5 ish years ago the bites would last forever. I don't Think they were selling enough and it seemed they changed the recipe to dissolve faster. I hope they didn't change it again. I like them because I know they stay on and I'm not fishing on credit.
