"The Live Zip bait ties have been an absolute game changer for giant bluefin tuna fishing here on Cape Cod. We most often use big bluefish as live bait and the zips have eliminated broken bridles and "suck offs". The zips have significantly increased our hook-up percentage." 




NFI:  How do you feel the 'LIVE ZIPS" have helped or changed the game of fishing?

LANCEI think Live Zips bring a whole new world of fishing to the average angler all while allowing experienced anglers to take their game up a few notches.  

 I wise old man once told me that, "if you want to catch big fish, use big live baits."  Even if you are bass fishing, throw out a big live shad or bluegill and let it work for you while you are perhaps jigging or trolling for other fish.

 Live Zips allow you to easily fish for that monster fish with little to no effort or experience.  You dont need rubber bands or dental floss to bridle a live bait (they don't work that good anyway).  

 Any angler can learn to use a Live Zip in just a few seconds. Inexperienced anglers are able to now go after big fish that they probably would have had little chance catching in the past.  Not only are they so easy a caveman can use them, they offer a number of other benefits to the novice angler and seasoned veteran alike...

 1.) Quickly bridle your bait and minimize the amount of time spent handling the bait.

 2.) Keep the gap of the hook wide open for the best chance at a quality hookset.

 3.) Assure that the hook is facing straight up and not spinning over against the side of your bait making it nearly impossible to hook a fish.

 4.) Minimally invasive, the zip only passes through above the eye of the bait leaving the bait lively for the best chance at a strike.

 5.) The bait can get smashed repeatedly and you can feel secure knowing the bait is still there working and even if you don't hook up right away.

 Those are 5 good reasons any fisherman would want to use these new zips.  Novice anglers can try a new style of fishing and bring home some big fish and seasoned pros can take it to the next level and know they are live baiting at the highest, most productive level.



NFI:  How do you feel the LIVE ZIPS has helped with bridling?

NICK: "The LIVE ZIPS has helped me in many ways. First off its a zip tie so it is secure, no slippage. Also it has a pointed end which slides thru the fish nicely, easy to puncture fish wit with minimal damage. One of the most key features is the small channel tab used to secure the hook upright.  No more live bait shaking your hooks. Its a must have for any live bait fishermen."

NFI:  What is the biggest fish you've landed on the LIVE ZIPS?

NICK:  "The biggest fish I landed so far with the NITTA LIVE ZIP is a 187.6 pound Ahi, tough to beat but anything is possible with the NITTA LIVE ZIPS."

NFI:  How does the R3 and N3 helped with dad bait rigging?

LYLE:  "The R3 and N3 are awesome not only because it keeps your dead baits from spinning and tangling your line, it also makes it look like your dead bait is swimming.  On the kayak you canals use it to get your bait down deeper if you do a slow troll."



NFI:  What kind of fishing do you do?

IAN:  "I grew up doing different styles of shore fishing, from using a strait pole to ulua                  fishing.  Later I learned to spearfish and for the last 8 years I mostly kayak fish."

MICAH:  "The R3 Front Rig is a huge game changer, because you can troll fast and the bait will remain nice."
