I’ve spent some time talking about the use of live bait as well as artificial bait.
Personally, I use artificials more than live bait by a ratio of about 9-to-1. I am not averse to live bait; it’s a personal preference. I’m not going to try to convince you to use artificials like I do, so please use whatever you like, as long as it’s legal. That said, I’d like to talk about lures.
