Fish will eat anything that they think might be food, and if it is not they spit it back out. Apparently hooks sticking through their lips are a little harder for them to spit back out. Thus the multi-gazillion dollar market for artificial baits.

I've been told that you need to keep them refrigerated in order for them to remain lively... Also, that a little dab of "Dapper Dan" hair gel works well to keep 'em fresh.

I've caught walleyes on black licorice on a bet several times, much to the consternation of my ex brother in law

This seems true so many times, especially if may fish are congregated. I believe they are much more competitive if in a group, they try to get it before another does. When it is not so crowded, they may be a "bit" more selective. I call this selection/non selection process "the boarding house reach".

When fish get into a feeding frenzy, they seem to eat just about anything. This past summer, my daughter and I were swimming in a shallow area beside our boat. My wife decided to throw in a handful of some crunched up stale crackers that we had forgotten in the glove compartment from our previous time out. It immediately attracted a big school of bluegills. Those fish got into feeding frenzy and started biting us too. We finally had to get out of the water.
