Default Baitmasters

Whose used them? How do they ship? If you live in PBC is it shipping cheap and is it worth paying, or just buying from your local shop?

If buying bulk it's worth it. Packaging is very good. I was surprised how good my order was packaged.

If buying a case at a time, ship. If not, buy local.

Baitmasters, IMO, has the best quality out there - I have had it shipped and you need to order enough to make the $50+ shipping fee worth it, or head down there and pick it up.

Last week they had free shipping... just like fishing, "should've posted this yesterday"

I won't use any other bait. Even up here, most all of the boats worth a damn use only Baitmasters. Just check their website for all the tournament wins every year. We buy it by the case(s) this time of year, (or go in on a large buy run through a local shop), and use it all summer. I just placed an order for 4 cases of small bally for trolling and two cases of mullet for our dredges. Comes to NJ in two days, and is as hard as a rock packaged in dry ice. If I lived down there, I'd go pick it up.

Do they allow to pickup from their location on 6911 NE 3rd Avenue, Miami Fl??

That's literally 2-3 mins from my house, I'm a couple of blocks away, just east of Biscayne.

You can go on there website and fill your cart up and figure it out. To Virginia the cheapest method was 65 for a case of dinks. Most expensive was around 300. I'll stick to buying local

Wow, lots of love for baitmasters here. I am on the other side of the fence. When I purchased it several times it was not good. Bads were not sealed, bait was bloody with ice crystals. I avoid now. I purchased at a reputable place as well so I don't think it was that. Purchased a couple different times just to make sure it wasn't just that one shipment and all the same. I heard so much good about them thought I would give them a try, not worth it.

Sounds like you got old packages that had been refrozen

👍I've placed several orders. The orders are shipped and delivered in a timely fashion. Baitmasters is my "go to" vendor for silversides.

Just received my yearly order this week. Three cases of small bally and one case of dredge mullet. To NJ they use UPS two day shipping and pack the crap out of the cooler with dry ice. The mullet was received in two days, and like a rock when received. No ballyhoo was with the mullet. Uh oh. UPS driver says the paperwork shows the mullet package is 1 of 2? I call Baitmasters and they are very helpful. Track the shipment while I'm on the phone, and confirm the mullet is received, but the bally was still in transit. UPS screwed up. Baitmasters says it will be there the next day, and that it should be OK because the pack the bait with enough dry ice for this situation. They recommend that I check the bait before signing for the packages. If it is thawed, take a picture with my phone and have the driver note it is damaged. If there is any evidence of thawing, they will file a claim with UPS since they pay for 2 day delivery. I will get new bait if it is even slightly thawed. Bait arrives the next day and it is frozen solid. Dry ice was just about done, but the bait could not have been any more frozen. Rock solid good looking greenies with clear eyes.
