In The Wind Waker, the All-Purpose Bait is used to feed Fishmen so they draw the corresponding island in Link's Sea Chart. The Fishmen will also give information regarding the island.

The bait can also be used to draw near animals such as Seagulls and Pigs, with the later digging in the soil after eating it. The bait can also be used in front of Rat Holes to call Rats, which will sell Link more bait or Potions.

Hyoi Pears can be used to possess Seagulls, which can help Link reach hard-to-reach places and items.

Twilight Princess

In Twilight Princess, bait comes in two forms, both used for bobber fishing.

Bee Larvae


To obtain Bee Larvae, Link can knock down any of the beehives located in Ordon Village and Hena's Fishing Hut. After the Bees are defeated, the remains of the beehive can be scooped up by using an empty Bottle. Each scoop contains ten larvae. Bee Larvae can also be purchased from Sera's Sundries for 10 Rupees.

In addition to being used as fishing bait, the Bee Larvae can also be eaten by Link to recover a quarter of a Heart per larva.


Worms can be obtained from Bomskits or from digging in mounds of dirt as Wolf Link. After defeating a Bomskit, it will leave a Worm wiggling in the ground which can be scooped with an empty Bottle.
