Calling all fishermen!

For those of you out there that love to chum, Native Salt Clam is happy to introduce Chum – Muscle & Guts. Packed in salt to help keep it fresh, this chum is full of everything we cut off our clams while making our Salt Clams and Salty Tongue. Packed with big chunks of belly, it works wonders because of the smell! We know fishermen after stripers and snapper are going to go crazy for this stuff, but those aren’t the only species that won’t be able to resist the siren call.

Why Salt Clams?


Clams are commonly used to catch a wide variety of fish: pompano, whiting, perch, redfish, flounder, black drum, sheepshead, and snapper particularly love finding juicy clams to eat.

Unfortunately, fresh and frozen fishing baits are expensive, easily perishable, and so delicate that they are difficult to keep on the hook long enough to catch your target species.

Without messy clam guts in the way, the salted clam meat is so tough that fish cannot easily pull the bait off your hook, and whatever clams you don’t use can stay in the car overnight, or in the refrigerator for months without affecting performance.

Bottom line: Our premium fishing bait will stay on your hook and help you to catch more fish.

How They’re Made

We only use the toughest part of the clam for our fishing bait, discarding the guts that won’t stay on a hook.

We receive large, frozen blocks of hand-shucked, chowder- sized surf clams, caught and processed in the U.S.A. These clams are delivered to our small bait- making facility on the west bank of the Indian River in Florida.

After the clams are thawed they go through a weeks-long process of brining and hard salting in our proprietary salt blend.  Then the clams are hand trimmed to remove guts and waste, leaving only the toughest part of the shucked clam: the foot and siphon.

Finally, the finished clam is weighed and packed in a convenient, heavy-duty, resealable zip-loc bag.
