Live Bait vs. Artificial Lures: The Debate Ends Here

The competition to finally solve the debate.

I know I'm not alone in this one. Asking the question which approach is the best, live bait or artificial lures? Watch the video to find out.

I have to say, looking at the areas that were fished, I thought live bait was going to smoke the lures. It has to be a rare day and set of circumstances for live bait to loose to a lure, right? After all using live bait is often considered cheating.

As stated in the video lures do have some advantages over live bait. You can cover a lot more water and present a variety actions, sizes, and presentations. When it comes to bank fishing it is not all that uncommon for a lure to out catch a live bait presentation.

Some advice to help out the live bait anglers. Move your bait, slowly reel it in and let it sit. Just one crank and pause it. Additionally, if you still don't get a bite in fifteen minutes it's time to move.
