Yes, many fish do enjoy the taste of garlic. In fact, some fish owners will add garlic to their tanks in order to help keep their fish healthy.

Garlic contains a compound called allicin, which has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It’s thought that the allicin in garlic helps to keep harmful bacteria and fungus from developing in a tank and making the fish sick.

Garlic is a favorite food of many fish, and it can be a great way to add some flavor to your bait. However, you should use caution when using garlic around certain types of fish, like catfish, because it can actually make them sick.

Garlic also has a strong smell that can be off-putting to some fishermen. So if you’re fishing in an area where there are other fishermen nearby, you may want to avoid using garlic as bait.

There is no definitive answer to this question as there are a wide variety of fish with different preferences. Some people believe that garlic mimics the taste of prey, so predatory fish like it.

Some people also believe that certain compounds in garlic can help repel parasites and harmful bacteria. However, there is no scientific consensus on this topic, so more research is needed.
