>> IF YOU WANT TO CATCH A FISH,

YOU NEED TO USE EITHER BAIT

OR LURES.

FIRST LET'S TALK BAIT.

NOTHING BEATS NATURAL BAIT

FOR CATCHING FISH.

SOME GOOD ALL-AROUND FRESHWATER

BAITS ARE KERNEL CORN,

HOT DOGS, AND LIVE CRITTERS

SUCH AS CRICKETS, WORMS,

MINNOWS AND CRAWFISH.

YOU CAN TRY CATCHING YOUR OWN

OR YOU CAN BUY LIVE BAIT

AT MOST TACKLE SHOPS.

IF YOU'RE ON THE COAST,

LIVE SHRIMP IS YOUR BEST BET

FOR SALTWATER FISHING.

THERE ARE A FEW THINGS

TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN YOU'RE

FISHING WITH BAIT.

YOU'VE GOT TO KEEP BAIT ALIVE

FOR IT TO BE EFFECTIVE.

MAKE SURE YOU KEEP YOUR BAIT

COOL AND MOIST AND OUT OF

DIRECT SUNLIGHT.

YOUR BAIT SHOULD FIT THE

SIZE OF YOUR HOOK.

YOU MAY NEED TO USE ONLY A

PORTION OF YOUR BAIT

AS SHOWN HERE.

IF YOUR BAIT CAME FROM A BAIT

SHOP OR FROM ANOTHER BODY OF

WATER, DO NOT RELEASE THEE

UNUSED BAIT INTO THE WATERS

YOU ARE FISHING.

IT CAN INTERFERE WITH THE

PLANTS AND ANIMALS THAT

LIVE THERE NATURALLY.

DUMP THE BAIT IN A TRASHCAN

OR ON LAND AWAY FROM THE WATER.

NOW LET'S LOOK AT LURES.

THE JOB OF A LURE IS TO

MIMIC A FISH'S PREY.

FOR EXAMPLE, TAKE THE

SPINNERBAIT.

THE SPINNING BLADES ARE

DESIGNED TO CATCH A FISH'S

ATTENTION AS THEY MOVE

THROUGH THE WATER.

THE FLASHING SILVER LOOKS

JUST LIKE A TASTY MINNOW.

AS YOU CAN SEE, THIS BASS

FELL FOR IT.

ANOTHER POPULAR LURE

IS THE TOPWATER LURE.

BECAUSE IT FLOATS ON TOP

OF THE WATER, IT WORKS BEST

IN CALM WATERS WHERE IT'S

VISIBLE TO THE FISH BELOW,

LIKE THIS REDFISH.

TO USE A TOPWATER, CAST,

WAIT FOR THE WATER TO SETTLE

AND THEN POP YOUR ROD TIP.

REPEAT UNTIL YOU GET A STRIKE.

AND THEN THERE'S THE CRANKBAIT.

THIS LIP CAUSES THE BAIT TO

DIVE DOWN THROUGH THE WATER

AS YOU CRANK ON THE REEL.

AS SOON AS YOU CAST YOUR

CRANKBAIT, TURN THE REEL

QUICKLY A COUPLE OF TIMES SO

THE LIP WILL CATCH WATER

AND PULL DOWN.

STOP REELING, AND THE LURE

BEGINS TO FLOAT BACK UP.

YOUR GOAL IS TO IMITATE

AN INJURED FISH DARTING

THROUGH THE WATER.

YOU CAN FIND LURES IN

ALL SHAPES AND SIZES.

YOUR TACKLE DEALER CAN HELP

YOU PICK OUT A FEW FOR

YOUR NEXT FISHING TRIP.

>> FRESHWATER FISHING

OR SALTWATER FISHING?

>> AND REMEMBER, WHILE NATURAL

BAIT IS BEST, IT'S ALWAYS GOOD

TO HAVE A COUPLE OF ARTIFICIAL

LURES ON HAND FOR WHEN YOU GET

THROUGH FEEDING -

I MEAN CATCHING -

THE FISH.

(music)

>> I STARTED BETTER THAN

20 YEARS AGO DESIGNING

FISHING LURES.

BACK THEN I WOULD LOOK

AT ALL THE BAITS THAT BOMBER

MAKES AND SAY,

'YOU CAN'T MAKE ANYMORE.

EVERYTHING'S BEEN MADE.'

THAT WAS 20 YEARS AGO.

THEY'RE STILL GOING.
