Default Bait or lures?

What do you usually like to use: bait or lures? The one thing about using lures is that I really hate losing them on a snag because it can get costly after a while. If I get snagged while using bait, I only lose a hook which is cheaper.

It all depends on what I'm fishing for and how I'm fishing. When I fly fish, I use lures. When I'm just out fishing on a lake I use bait. I prefer to use bait, I think I catch more fish this way.

It doesn't matter if I use bait or lures, as long as fish takes it. But Mike is right, fish prefers bait than lures. I think fish is getting smarter now. It knows which is real food and which is not

The one thing I do like about using lures is the challenge to see if I can outsmart the fish. There was one time when I was using a lure and I caught 10 trout in a matter of a couple of hours. I've never had success like that again.

I prefer to use bait. I like the process of baiting the hook, especially if I get a fat juicy worm. Moreover, I don't want to fool the fish with lures

Because I fish in so many different areas, it really depends on what the regulation is. Overall, I prefer bait, but I've had some success with lures, too.

Wow, that's fantastic! Did you do it at night or in the day? I kinda think that fishing at night will get you better luck, as the fish won't easily recognize that the lures are fake
