Live Delivery Guarantee Update!

The shipping carriers that we utilize (FedEx, UPS, and USPS) have been unable to guarantee transit times. For this reason, we will be unable to guarantee live delivery on any order that is shipped. If you have any further questions, please contact us before placing your order at 1.800.733.2380. Thank you for your cooperation.

  • On all Live Bait shipments requiring more than 2 day ground transit times, we will be unable to offer a Live Delivery Guarantee unless an expedited shipping option is utilized. We will be happy to provide a shipping quote on those orders. If a ground option is chosen, the shipment will be strictly at the customer's risk.
  • There are certain times of the year, particularly June through September when we must suspend our Live Delivery Guarantee due to temperature extremes. You will be notified at the time of order if there are concerns with your order arriving safely!
