fish, e.g. on the end of a fishing hook.
insects, and smaller fish have been used for this purpose. Fishermen have also begun using plastic baitand, more recently, electronic lures, to attract fish. Because of the risk of transmitting Myxobolus cerebralis(whirling disease), troutand salmonshould not be used as bait. There are various types of saltwater baits that are natural. Studies show that natural baits like croaker and shrimp are more recognized by the fish and are more readily accepted.
