Fishbites gets teeth into New Zealand market

American bait brand Fishbites, otherwise known as Carr Specialty Baits, has formed a partnership with Proline Products’ Bite Fishing to serve retailers throughout New Zealand.

The official distribution deal will see the Bite Fishing team, best known for their rigs, jigs and terminal tackle, responsible for bringing new retailers on board and ensuring they are always stocked with Fishbites throughout the country.

The Florida-based company is known for its artificial baits for surf, inshore, offshore and freshwater fishing that have successfully caught quality fish worldwide.

Fishbites has proven its efficacy in New Zealand with many anglers in the country calling it a “miracle bait”. To date, New Zealand anglers have caught over 54 species of fish with the brand’s baits.

Terry Dillinger, president and CEO of Carr Specialty Baits, Inc, said: “New Zealand is an exciting market for us. We knew that once we got our product into the hands of anglers, it would be huge for the fishing industry there.

“Our strategic partnership with Bite Fishing will allow us to reach new anglers and continue to bring effective, innovative baits to fishing families around the world.”

Bite Fishing is proud to be New Zealand owned and operated providing high-quality fishing tackle to recreational fishermen, including rigs and jigs for all species.

Founder and owner Brent Mossman added: “We are extremely excited to bring Fishbites to our local retailers and anglers. Fishing is a huge part of our lifestyle here and these products are going to revolutionise how anglers fish here and make them more successful.
