Fishing with live bait is preferable because it feels natural to the fish and produces a better action. If you are going fishing, try to find earthworms or maggots from rotten meat in a really good bait shop for example. Fishing with artificial lures is also an option, but they don’t produce as much excitement for catching fish. Fish love live bait!
Fish do not give a damn about lures that cost more than five dollars. In fact, there’s nothing that beats live worms when it comes down to catching trout on a fly rod. Exceptions include pike and large saltwater species such as giant trevally and barracuda where the use of living or dead baits respectively can be most effective. Fishing with metal lures is the best way to catch large predatory fish such as tuna and marlin, but your hook-ups will be less frequent than with live bait.
