Joe Ezell

Joe began fishing farm ponds and local lakes for bass, bream and catfish in grade school while balancing a tackle box and Zebco 33 from the handle bars of a bike. His dad bought an aluminum boat with a 9 horse Johnson tiller steer about the time Joe got his driver’s license and he pulled that boat to every lake within a day’s ride behind an old ‘64 Ford pickup chasing Bass all over South East Mississippi.

Fast forward to 2012 and the first bay boat was purchased. After many trips and several charters Captain Chad had seen enough potential to begin mentoring Joe and showing him the ropes of the charter business. In 2015 Joe and Brenda bought a piece of property in Delacroix, LA with a burned out trailer on pilings and overgrowth so bad it would take a year to clean up. That same year he got his USCG OUPV Captain’s license. It has been a long journey from the kid on that bicycle carrying the Zebco 33 to today, but the grin when Joe sees a cork go down or fish hit the net is the same now as it was then. Joe truly enjoys seeing people catch fish and feels honored to share his passion for the outdoors and fishing with others. If you’re in Delacroix go fishing with Joe!

I was super skeptical about using these at first but over the past 4 days, I’ve probably caught over 200 sea trout speckled trout on the Fishbites Fight Club Shrimp. These things are tough – I used 2 baits and probably got a hundred on each one.

I never trusted artificial in the past until I had a friend give me some Fishbites! Out fishes any other artificial and in my opinion out fishes live bait while surf fishing. Highly recommend giving them a try! My favorite scent is the sand flea! Good luck!

– John Lindecamp

I swear by Fishbites for surf fishing. We bought a pack and used a half strip on the hook shaft with either clam or mullet strip on the shank. With this set up we were literally getting a bite every cast, usually within 2 minutes of the bait hitting the water. If the bites took much longer we very often found that the Fishbites strip was missing. We caught blues, kingfish, trout and catfish.

– Mark Farmen

Great bait works good and doesn’t come off the hook easy have caught a lot of fish off of the same piece of bait.

– Brad Simpson

Recently I been throwing Fishbites Dirty Boxer Curly Tail. The Fishbites swim more true and don’t spin like the gulp swimming mullet, they last 20X longer than the gulps and pin fish and other fish don’t pick the tails off. The Fishbites dont dry up as fast as the gulps, I have never caught trout often off gulp, but trout will hit these Fishbites, redfish smoke them and flounder can’t resist them. Gulps are great baits and are proven to catch fish, but in my true opinion the Fight Club Fishbites are much better bait, swim better, last longer, tougher, and catches more fish. I truly wasn’t a believer but I am now.

– Eddie Cabler

I was very skeptical, but they work great. My wife loves that I don’t smell like bait when I get home.

– Dillon Stoddard

I have been using Fishbites for 8 years, I fish saltwater and sometimes when I get tired of loosing bait I put on a Fishbites strip and catch red drum and flounder and just about any fish out there! I have told many people about Fishbites and they are really surprised when they find out they make lures too! My fishing team Reel Keepers uses Fishbites, they are slowly learning they work, the fish love them and they are safe for the fish, good nutrients!

– Hope Palmer Slaughter

Have been using the Fishbites Fight Club lures and they have been great. They are strong and durable and the fish have been messing them up like crazy! Caught close to 10 oversized reds on one lure.

– Tyler Husky

I personally began to you use them in the surf and caught hundreds of whiting on the orange clam. I consistently caught fish each trip 2 to 1 over my naturally bait offerings! I then began to use the paddle tail and shrimp tails in the mosquito lagoon where I live and they are now my all time favorite for the redfish and trout.

– Craig Patterson

Picked up some assorted baits based on watching BamaBeachBum fishing with them over on YouTube. Had an amazing day fishing, only used Fishbites and they worked great!
