so I need some quality clam bags. last 2 years I've bought from another waterman who told me after the purchase, about a month after, that the material wasn't what he thought. I bought 500 and need approx. 350 to bait my lines and even with the extra they had to be replaced beginning of following year. this winter I bought comm bags from capt bruce and it was same material, no good.these bags are kinda stiff and stay open when baiting. I need the more flexible type which are a little harder to bait but they last a good while. any ideas?

Not sure what you've used, but the bait bags I'm familiar with come on a roll that you cut to the size you want, my understanding is the different colors are for different "strengths" I believe the orange is heaviest, green is like a medium and black is the lightest and most flexible,....I think, lol
Might depend on who makes the material.
Should be able to get it at any commercial fishermans supply. It ain't cheap by the roll, but theres like a jillion feet in one.

If you can't find it check out the places in the northeast, I know Ketchum supply in New Bedford carries it.

I got a 500 box from Capt Bruce this off season (good price) and they too are not holding up.  So just this year on a dozen days or so they have a lot of holes already.  I know my winder is a tad rough on them - and I run then fast but it seems that bags in prior years bags lasted a couple season.  I think I may go to necks before long anyways and the balance of the 500 and what are still good, should get me through the year.  I'll be looking here for a solution, sorry I just restated the problem.

no worries Guy. I just want to find a good quality bag. I run a dipper also but you can tell when looking at the bags when I unbait that these small holes that end up getting bigger are from the crabs breaking the mesh. most of the time when a bag is damaged by the dipper you have a sharp edge somewhere on your ramp or slide   and it cuts slices. these bags are cheap and can't be fixed just replaced. if I find some good bags i'll let u know. I was gonna buy from wyeman on here but never got up with him. the next time I buy iwant to check out the bags and compare to the junk I have.
