Why in the hell would you waste live bait on a bull redfish that will bite pretty much any artificial bait known to man?

Let those trout swim!

I've never gotten one to eat anything but a live freelined crab.

Bull reds, meh. A barely legal slot red, yum!

I find a number of reasons live bait may be preferred:
1. Works better under lower visibility conditions.
2. Can keep more baits in the strike zone more of the time. Two guys easily fish 6 live baits at once.
3. Works for disabled anglers unable to constantly cast and retrieve.
4. Works under strong current conditions where managing lures is harder.
5. More easily reaches deep fish - getting any lure other than heavy jigs below 40 ft is hard.
6. Works better for many other species - catfish, shark, drum, specks, etc.
7. Allows anglers to sit and wait for strikes rather than constant cast and retrieve.
8. Allows one more skilled angler to handle casting for entire fishing party - women, children, less experienced anglers.

For the same reason you see us out on the pier slinging cigs and hard tails at kings a lot more than you see us slinging lures.
