I have to admit for the first time in my life I don't know the answer to that question.
It doesn't seem as though either step is going to make much difference. If I fish and catch a good catch, my taxes will go up so much as to be punitive. Plus people who don't bother to try to fish will be entitled to a big portion of my catch.
If I cut bait, I will be taxed on my wealth of bait and/or be made to share the bait with those who don't know how to cut bait or even want to cut bait.
In the past, I may have been able to deduct the cost of the bait but now I am not sure. I do know that I cannot hire anyone to help me either fish or cut bait as I will have to provide them with health insurance or pay a fine.
So, in the end I won't hire anyone, or if I do, I'll limit the cutter or fisherman to 29 hours so I can avoid the added cost of health insurance. Of course, if I don't provide health insurance for the person I hire or don't hire, my taxes will have risen to such a level that health insurance will be provided for the non- cutter/fisherman any way.
If I don't fish or cut bait, I can get the fish I need and/or the bait plus the health insurance I couldn't afford in the first place? Wow!
Now if only I could get a free cell phone and a TV and housing assistance then fishing or cutting bait wouldn't matter at all! What's that? You say I can get a free cell phone, TV and housing and not have to worry about the smell and grime of fish or bait?
Now the decision is getting easier. Maybe I won't do either. I'll sit in my government provided home, eat my meals, watch my TV, and make my cell phone calls.
Is this the country you want for your children and grandchildren? I sure as bleep don't. If you do, Shame on You!
