Bait - it's the reel thing.
I'd like to buy the world a carp.
Be young, have fun, eat bait.
It's mollusk time.
Plop, plop, fish, fish, oh what a relief it is!
Betcha can't troll just one.
You got chum in my peanut butter! Well, you got peanut butter on my chum!
Breakfast of chubsuckers.
The largemouth bass that refreshes.
...and of course .... "Got Bait?"

Always there for you bpp-ers!

The heart of the Russo family's drug trafficking operation was purportedly housed in this vending machine, the hideout of mastermind Al "The Worm" Russo. Former gangsters said that his demise came about when a desperate angler punched the machine to get his money back, accidentally upsetting "The Worm" into the dispenser slot. It is now rumored that Al Russo sleeps with the fish.
