A cornucopia of life exists in and around salt waters, and humans have taken advantage of this bounty for thousands of years. That's even before the first Red Lobster restaurant opened its doors.

Part of that bounty is the tremendous variety of baits that we can collect and use to catch fish. To me, one of the most fascinating aspects of saltwater fishing is figuring out which of the dozens of possible baits would be best for a certain species that day. Sometimes it doesn't matterthe fish will hit just about anythingbut other times they'll refuse everything except one particular type of forage. In this chapter I'll examine all those baits commonly available to saltwater fishermen and the basics of using them.
