|Ingredients:||Bug Meat (1)|
|Produces:||5 Bait per craft|
Bait can be bought at the Fish Shop for 5g each, crafted, grown in a Worm Bin, or found in Fishing Treasure Chests. Bait may also randomly appear in the Traveling Cart's stock for 100-1,000g.Thirty bait are the reward for completing the River Fish Bundle in the Fish Tank.
To attach bait to your fishing rod, open the Inventory screen, then left-click or right-click on the bait (left-click to select the stack, right-click to select one piece of bait), and then right-click on the fishing rod.
On an Xbox controller, open the inventory with B, then press A on the bait to select the whole stack (or X to pick up a single one), then X to attach to the rod.
Only one bait will be consumed per use. The remaining bait can be detached by right-clicking the rod in your inventory or pressing X on the Controller.
On iOS, drag the bait on to the rod. There is currently no known way on iOS to remove bait from a rod.
Using bait with your fishing rod reduces the delay before a nibble by 50%.
