Ye Olde Bait Shoppe: More than Worms

GTA Bait Shop

GTA Bait Shop

So, what are you hunting or fishing for today?  No problem if you haven’t decided since we have bundles for the undecided.  A little from column A and a little from column B will get you pretty far.  Just follow me and look at the selection.  Don’t get too close since some of them make stains that don’t come out.

Now, I prefer to go with our Rainbow package because it tries to connect with every animal preference.  It isn’t perfect, but you have every basic color and a variety of scents.  We include smell enhancers and glitter spray as well.  You see, some beasties are attracted to certain aromas and others like the shiny targets.  Don’t have to use too much either because they’re both rather potent.  Keep in mind that this is all basic and you have to do the dressing yourself.  We can include a manual to help since bait preparation can be considered art.

Keep in mind that the Rainbow package is a starter, so you can exchange for specific bait types and add other pieces.  We do have some fatteners in stock to make your bait juicier, slower, and more appealing to a predator.  These are all done by injection and we recommend that you don’t do it until you get out into the field.  Once a piece of bait is fattened up, you can’t return it and it’s viability drops from months to days.  You better be sure when you use these because they’re a risk.  Still one of our biggest sellers though.  Oh, and doing it too early means it’ll be hard to move the bait because they become a lot heavier.  Imagine dragging an entire pack of cast iron dumbbells around.

One other thing that is included in all packages is obedience spray.  This is specifically for live bait, which becomes docile and follows your commands.  Makes a hunt a lot easier without the bait trying to escape, shout, or talking back.  The bottles are plastic and reusable, but we do have a warning.  If you plan on using the bottles for anything other than obedience spray then it must be cleaned out with vinegar and I mean thoroughly. This stuff will make you zone out for days, which means you won’t be eating, drinking, or sleeping for that time.  After all, you can’t give orders to yourself with you’re in a trance and this stuff is very potent.

That should do it since you aren’t going for anything specific.  Actually, one more thing that I always forget.  Do you want virgin or non-virgin bait?

    Charles, where your mind wanders with its humor is awesome. Can’t wait for the next ‘trip!’


  2. Geez Doc. What’s the difference between virgin and non-virgin bait besides the obvious I mean?


  3. Ha, good one. My mind went there when you said the bait might talk back.


  4. Arr! I be needin’ some bait to catch an air kraken! It destroyed me airship, yes the one I bought from that thar shop up the road… hey, wasn’t that you I bought it from last week?
    I got to git that air kraken, it took me hand and leg.
    What’s that? No, my name isn’t Ahab or Ishmael, nor did I name my air ship Pequod.
    Now what kind of bait should I use? Also do you think I’d be better off with a harpoon or a cannon?


    • Never sold airships. Have a fourth cousin half removed who does. We don’t talk much. Sounds like you need either a griffin or roc since air krakens are more interested in large meals. Guess it’ll eat small fry if they’re angered or you step in one of its mouths. As far as weapons go, I suggest a very big fire spell since those other options sound too tiny.

      Then again, we do have a floating sign shaped like an air kraken. Put it out every Thursday. That could be a decoy with some scent. Just need to know the gender of the one you’re hunting.

      Also, please stop at a healer first. You’re bleeding on my favorite rug.

      • I’ll take them all! I won’t rest until I kill that air kraken! I did rest long enough to see that healer, now I have this peg leg and hook for a hand, next time I’ll find a better healer.
        Tell your fourth cousin half removed that I need a new air ship, think he’ll give Mr a discount if I mention your name?


      • Did you go to Perry Healer? He’s not a doctor. He’s a metal and wood crafter who hordes expired healing potions and likes helping people. Strangers make that mistake all the time. We tried putting a warning sign in front of his place, but he won the defamation lawsuit.

        Might not a discount from my name. Tell him Glenda sent you. He won’t ask, but he’ll take some coins off the price.

      • That fraud! No wonder I have a peg leg now! I’ll get even with him… after I take care of that air kraken!


      • Good luck on both of your hunts.
