Bait is an item found in some of the Legend of Zelda games in varying shapes. Bait has unique responses to monsters. Bait can also be used for other animals, such as seagulls.
Appearances, Locations and Uses
The Legend of Zelda

In The Legend of Zelda, Bait (also called Food) is purchased from shops and can be used to attract some enemies. Its essential use, however, comes in the dungeons, where it is used to remove foul-tempered Goriyas from the path.
Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons
The Wind Waker
In The Wind Waker the All-Purpose Bait can be used on enemies and several animals to draw them nearer. The main purpose of this bait however, is to feed it to Fishman so Link can persuade him to draw parts of the sea chart and give detailed information.
A Hyoi Pear can be used to possess seagulls, which can help Link find and overcome hard-to-reach place or obstacles. To do this, Link humorously places a pear on his head and assumes a meditating position.
To obtain bee larvae, Link can knock down any of the beehives that are seen scattered throughout Hyrule, mainly the one in Ordon Village and another one behind Hena's fishing hut. After the bees are destroyed, the remains of the beehive can be scooped up by using an empty bottle. Each scoop contains ten (10) larvae. The larvae can also be purchased from Sera's Sundries for 10 Rupees.
Worms can be obtained from Bomskit 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 easily scooped with an empty bottle, yielding only one (1) worm.
