The few things I don't like about bit fishing: the hassle and inonvenience of making a trip to the bait shop before my fishing trip. I'm usually gun-ho ready to go and don't want to waste extra time. It gets expensive if you fish often. $5-10 a trip for bait can add up each month. Plus, I don't really like just sitting around watching my rod for hours on end.
I prefer to stay active, so casting and working lures helps me stay intuned and focused. If a certain spot isn't productive, I'll walk a ways and try another, then another if permittable. Plus you can catch fish after fish after fish for years I. end on the same one plug barring it doesn't get broken off or destroyed.
But there are plenty of times I got ski led and went home with the voice in my head yelling " if I only had bait!!!!"
