Using live bait for fishing

Q: I’d like to know if you can use live bait for fishing?

A: We are prohibited from causing harm to any creature. Using live bait to catch fish in the form of ‘crackers’, worms or other fish is impermissible be as this is inflicting pain upon the creation of Allah Ta’ala.
