DICK'S SPORTING GOODS FISHING LICENSES & LIVE BAIT IN STORE
Using Live Bait to Fish
Fresh bait is the difference-maker for your fishing trip, so anglers should preserve their bait for a successful outing. Our in-store Fishing PROS can give you specific tips based on the type of bait you're using.
Using bait within one month.
If using worms within a month, you can keep small amounts in the refrigerator until your next outing.
Keeping bait beyond a month.
If keeping large amounts of worms for a longer period of time, store them in a worm box. Make sure your worms are properly stored in soil and feed them about once a week.
Keep bait and water cool.
If using live fish, such as shiners or minnows, keep your bait and water cool. Change the water if it becomes dark or cloudy and avoid overcrowding.
Free line winding is available with line purchases.
Bait and line pricing and availability vary by store location and season. Need bait or line that's not part of your local store's assortment? Tell a Fishing PRO, and we'll do our best to stock the bait and line you need.
