Term Bait
Definition

Any substance used to attract prey. The term is especially used with regard to catching fish.

 In the Dominican Republic, local fishermen most commonly use passive methods of fishing with natural bait, or small dead fish, whole or in parts. Successful fishing depends largely on the availability and type of bait used. Balaju, herring, sardines, and squid are the most commonly used bait species and are caught with small fishing nets.
