The unrivaled quality of our bait allows you to spend less time switching washed out baits, and more time unhooking fish.


Locally Sourced

Can you say with confidence where your bait is from and how long it took to get there? We can. We operate our own company boats, catching most of our product within a few miles of our waterfront processing facility. Located in Marathon, FL Keys, less than a mile from the base of the Seven Mile Bridge, we process our bait within hours of catching it.

Quality bait is the hallmark of our business model. Bait is vacuum-sealed in packs of six to ensure uniform sizing as well as proper freezing and a tight seal. Badass Bait is proud to hold two active licenses and to be owned and operated by commercial fishing families with decades of experience. We understand the key to success is in the bait.
