Ever wondered what the difference is between bait, lures, and fishing jigs? One really just leads into the next. When referring to fishing bait it traditionally refers to live bait like worms, bugs, etc. Another popular bait used now is Powerbait. It comes in a huge array of colors and scents that are specially formulated to catch the attention of passing fish.....and those you don't need to keep alive! A lure is an artificial plastic or rubber bait designed to take the place of live bait on the end of your hook. They are made in all sorts of sizes, colors, and styles, each designed to attract more fish. A jig is a type of lure that contains a lead head with a hook molded into it that is usually covered by a soft body. They're made to add live bait, lures, or can be used alone. There is a specific style of fishing that is used with jigs, called jigging. Jigging is the act of making jerky, vertical motions as oppose to a traditional horizontal glide of your bait through the water. This technique is used commonly in ice fishing but is also used in fresh water and salt water fishing as well. Your arm can get pretty tired trying to keep one or several poles moving at once.
