There are some places and situations in the world where fake is better. For years fishermen look for the best ways to catch fish and have tried almost everything under the sun. With state regulations getting tighter, on catch limits and hook and release several fisheries have gone to only allowing certain kinds of methods to be used to catch the prize fish. Some fisheries only allow artificial bait instead of live bait to be used and the manufacturers of fishing gear have come up with some excellent artificial bait to be used in those situations. Lures of all sizes and colors are available today with each fisherman having his own favorite. There are all sorts of artificial baits on the market from jiggers and crank bait to rubber worms all designed to attract and catch fish. There are even some scents that can be applied to these devices to help in the fisherman’s quest. You will need to check local regulations to see if they are allowed and also what kind of hook can be used with them like a barbless or single hook as opposed to a treble hook. Artificial bait can work wonders and depending on where you are at can even be better than live bait in many situations. Go to any store that stocks fishing gear and you will find a wide selection of choices of artificial bait to use for your next fishing expedition. Who knows you might be hooked on them.
