Different bait types in Genshin Impact attract different fish species. After you complete the quest “Exploding Population” and unlock fishing, you will be given a small amount of every bait type and a recipe to craft the Fruit Paste Bait.

Bait Recipes

However, you can only learn to craft all four kinds of bait by getting the recipes from Nantuck, the Mondstadt Angler. You can get the remaining three recipes in exchange for nine Medakas.
