- What do you call the thing which we stick it into the fishing hook to fish? is it called "fishing bait"?

Thanks a lot! :)

    I agree with Biblio.

    Bait, or fish bait, if it is a piece of meat skewered onto a plain hook.

    A lure (or various other more specific terms) for something that is man made.

    Shows how much I know about fishing...:eek:

    After reading bibliolept's and nzfauna's responses, I agree that "bait" is/was alive whereas "lure" is man-made.
