What does bait mean? Is it to lure someone into a trap?
Yes, that's correct! It's similar to fishing, where you put a worm or piece of bait on a fishing hook to catch a fish. If you leave bait for someone, you are tempting them into a trap with something they find desirable. This could be with words, objects, or actions. Ex: Don't take the bait. He wants you to get angry so that you get in trouble. Ex: As we arrived at the lake, I realised I had left the fishing bait at home.
