Pro Bait started out as a small bait shop that was run out of a garage where fresh and frozen bait was sold to anglers. At first it was only aimed at the Western Province league anglers, but it soon grew into a business supplying shops and larger organizations with bait. Anglers regularly ordered bait for trips that they are planning from as far as Johannesburg.
Early in 2010 it was time for Pro Bait to spread its wings. Pro Bait got the idea of importing marine worms as it is illegal to sell marine worms collected from the wild in SA. Not long after that Pro Bait was the first company in SA to legally trade in marine worms in the form of a product called Dynabait. Dynabait dry marine worms go through a process of freeze drying, making them 100% dehydrated and this gives them a shelf life of over 2 years! To use these worms you simply soak them in water for approx 45 minutes before they are totally rehydrated and ready for use. More recently Pro Bait decided to increase its range by moving into more tackle related products. The first product to see the light after Dynabait is the Namibian favourite, Katana Hooks. These hooks are a product of Excalibur-tackle in Hentiesbay. They have been tested rigorously in South African waters and are fast becoming the hook of choice for both competitive and social anglers. The connection with Excalibur –Tackle also resulted in Pro Bait being their South African agent for their high quality custom built rods. The workmanship and action on these rods are truly amazing.
