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. Read our Rigging your Pole page to research the kinds of fish you’re after and the bait and lures they are attracted to.

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 invasive carp minnows. See Don’t Spread Crayfish and Invasive Carp Control to learn more about how these invasive species hurt your fishing prospects.

Collecting your own bait?

Review the Live Bait Regulations, 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.

  • Other species of crayfish may be imported into the state, sold and purchased only for human consumption, scientific research, or as food for confined animals kept by approved entities, such as research institutions, agencies or publicly owned zoos. All other uses, such as pond stocking or as pets or pet food are not allowed.
