Are you talking lure or bait? With out any doubt the best bait known for bear is beaver. If you are asking about lures, there are lots of different options.

Where are you planning to hunt? Looks like you are from Washington and if you hunt bears in WA beware that it is against the law to use bait/lures/attractants. We have so many bears here that you don't need lures and you don't need a ticket.

Predator calls work real well, depending on the situation. I don't wear camo, usually jeans and a Tshirt.

Depends on the situation.
You can spot and stalk and then call or cold call in an area that has bears.

I usually cold call with a predator call. I call for 30 seconds and listen for 10 seconds and repeat this for a minimum of 1 hr. Usually I call for 2-4 hrs.

Cow calls and fawn in distress also work.

Most of the predator calling "rules" apply (wind, camo, scent, etc.) though bears don't see as well as coyotes.

I strictly use hand calls, but know guys who use digital to kill bears.
