Most fishermen use bait to attract fish. Some common bait choices include worms, minnows, insects, and artificial lures that resemble these natural foods.
It’s important to use bait that is appropriate for the type of fish you’re targeting. For example, Live worms work well for bass fishing because the bass is predatory fish that like to eat live prey.
Moving objects in the water create shadows and reflections that mimic natural prey. The more erratic the movement, the more likely it is to attract a fish’s attention.
And vibrations produced by moving objects also mimic the movements of natural prey, which can trigger a feeding response in some fish.
That’s why you’ll often see fisherman jigging their rods up and down or side-to-side to create vibrations in the water.
Each type of lure is designed to mimic a particular natural food source that fish are attracted to.
This includes smaller fish, plankton, insects, and other organisms that live in or near the water. Fish can also be attracted to scents such as garlic or anise oil.
