Making a bait farm in terraria will help you to get more bait for fishing. To make a bait farm you need dirt and grass seed or jungle grass seed.
You can buy grass seed and jungle grass seed from the dryad (move the dryad to the jungle biome to buy the jungle grass seed). Then you need to create a vertical line using the dirt. After you do it, make horizontal lines using the dirt using the vertical line that you have created.
