Bait can be attached to a Fiberglass Rod or an Iridium Rod, or inserted into a Crab Pot. Crab Pots require bait to catch fish, but fishing rods do not require it. However, attaching bait to a fishing rod will decrease the delay before a fish bites or increase the chance to find treasure.
To attach bait to a fishing rod, click on the bait (left-click or right-click, depending on how many you want to pick up), and then right-click on the rod. To remove bait, right-click on the rod.
Each cast uses one piece of bait or one magnet. When all bait is used up, the game pops up a notification saying "You've used your last piece of bait."
On an Xbox controller, press A on the bait to select the whole stack (or X to pick up a single one), then X to attach to the rod.
On a PS4 controller, press X on the bait to select the whole stack (or  to pick up a single one), then  to attach to the rod.
Bait can be detached by pressing X on either Controller.
