SUBJECT: # 40057: What is "cured" bait fish?????

Submitted by Capt Marty (74.79.1.34) from NEW YORK on 12/28/2008 8:28:00 AM

I recently saw a program where the fishermen/women pulled uo to the "bait dock" and asked for "cured" bait.......... WTF is the difference between "cured" and just normal everyday bait fish?

    just a guess, but I know some offshore guys will salt their dead bait fish so they will last longer when they are trolled.

    Cured live bait is just netted bait that has been kept in a pen for 24 hours or more. The reason is if you net bait a good percentage of them are injured in the process. It generally takes several hours for them to die. If you use them on a hook before they die they are likely to just hang there without putting up a struggle or trying to swim.

    Anyway with "cured" bait the weak and injured have died off and you're not buying worthless bait.

    There's a world of difference between cured and non-cured live bait.
