I can't understand the difference between "ledger-bait" and "bait". Please, what is the difference between these two words?
If I want to use an animal to lure one huge animal out of its cave, what word should I use?
I was looking for a translation of the Russian word "наживка" and several dictionaries provided me with "ledger-bait" and "bait". Now, I remember that I know the second word as a translation to the Russian word "приманка". However, I am not familiar with the word "ledger-bait". Trying to look for "ledger" ended up with synonyms for tombstone, groundsel, main book, and crossbeam.
I am confused.
