Fishing With Live Bait

Dick Sternberg

Fishing With Live Bait

From the introduction: Simply stated, the goal of Fishing With Live Bait is to improve your skills as a live-bait angler. The opening section introduces you to the terminal tackle and other equipment you'll need.

Following this are sections on fishing with baitfish, worms and leeches, insects, salamanders and frogs, crustaceans and even clams. Because this book broadly defines live bait to include cut-baits, frozen baits and preserved natural baits you'll also find information about fishing with salmon eggs, fish parts and preserved baits.

This book doesn't go into detail on where and when to catch gamefish. Although some basic techniques are briefly covered, the focus of this book is on effectively choosing and rigging live baits for the gamefish you want to catch.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” - Benjamin Franklin

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -
Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
