Purchasing Bait Tips

Here are a few pointers on purchasing bait for your fishing trips:

  • Always use fresh, spunky offerings when live bait fishing.
  • If using leeches, change them frequently.
  • When buying live bait, make certain it looks lively.  Night crawlers and leeches should be firm; minnows and chubs should be swimming at the bottom of the tank, rather than the top.
  • Cool your bait bucket before you fill it.
  • Don’t over-crowd your bait bucket.
  • Don’t put your bait in chlorinated water; use lake or well water.
  • When fishing, keep you bait cold and out of the sun.
