This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in December of 2018. While fishing is a great way to spend a weekend, dealing with bait is a smelly, nasty chore — even if you don't end up getting guts and gunk all over you. These boards take some of the hassle out of preparing your hook, as they give you a large, sturdy surface on which to work. Not only that, but many have places to store lures and tools, and most are equipped with holes for disposing of the mess. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best bait board on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 28, 2018:

There aren't a lot of features that distinguish one bait board from another, so any useful distinguishing attribute — such as a built-in ruler or cup holder — served to boost an item's rating in our eyes. Durability and ease of use also factored in heavily, as did the ability to keep all of your necessary gear within arm's reach.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
