Which bait do you use for which fish? That's a great question. This complete guide outlines which fishing bait you should use for each fish you are going after.
There are hundreds of different types of fishing bait you can use depending on what time of year or season you're fishing in, what environment you are in (streams, rivers, ponds or deep ocean) and many other variables.
Let's take a look at your choices and which bait to use for each fish you might want to catch...
Imagine heading out for a few relaxing hours of fishing.
With rod and reel and tackle box in hand, you descend a hill and come to the edge of a swiftly moving stream. The sun reflects off the crystal clear water as you set down your tackle box and rig your bait. You cast into a tranquil pool or eddy and your bobber floats on the water surface.
Suddenly, it disappears. Your reflexes automatically set the hook. The fish has taken the bait.
There are many live types of bait that can be used to catch fish.
These include earthworms, also known as dew worms and night crawlers, and insects including grasshoppers, flies, insect larvae and crickets.
Other live baits are minnows, chub, shad, crayfish and frogs.
Live bait can be purchased at fishing bait and tackle stores, at some variety stores in popular fishing areas, on a dewy lawn after dark (use a flashlight to find dew worms), compost piles, around piers and boat launches as well as around campsites.
Prepared bait is bait that has been previously prepared. These include kernel corn, bread balls, cheese balls, stink baits, salmon eggs, cereal balls, baked potato pieces, chicken entrails and hotdogs.
Artificial bait is bait that is manmade. These include plastic worms and insects, flies, lures, small jigs, streamer flies, spoons, streamers and spinners.
