Live Bait Dealers

ATTENTION ANGLERS: Live crayfish regulations change March 1, 2014

Effective March 1, 2014, the sale of one crayfish species, the virile (or northern) crayfish (Orconectes virilis), will be allowed for use as live fish bait in Missouri. HOWEVER, live virile crayfish may not be imported into the state.

Before you buy, know your fish’s favorite foods

The best bait or lure depends on what kind of fish you want to catch and where. Browse our Fishing How-Tos under Related Information below to research the kinds of fish you’re after and find out what they eat.

Registered bait dealers help protect Missouri's fishing waters

Browse live-bait dealers who sell only approved species that help Missouri anglers avoid spreading harmful aquatics, such as rusty crayfish and Asian carp minnows. Visit Don’t Spread Crayfish and Asian Carp Control below to learn more about how these invasive species hurt your fishing prospects.

If you collect live bait yourself, make sure to visit Live Bait Regulations below, and always collect bait in the area where you are fishing. When you’re ready to go home, be sure to throw unused live bait in the trash so your favorite fishing waters stay healthy and productive.
