I am curious about plastic baits (i.e. pink worms, ect) and if they are considered bait.
This regulation inquiry applies to the Situk R and AK regulations concerning "Only unbaited, single-hook, artificial lures or flies may be used year-round."
"artificial lure means a lure that is manmade, free of bait as defined below, and is used to attract fish for the purpose of taking them, and includes artificial flies."
"bait means any substance applied to fishing gear for the purpose of attracting fish by scent, including fish eggs in any form, natural or preserved animal, fish, fish oil, shellfish, or insect parts, natural or processed vegetable matter, and natural or synthetic chemicals."
