    Just an after thought, but have any of you guys with the "samwich" ever have to explain to your wife why you have those little sparkely things in your teeth???? I did see some girls "at one of those places" that had "pasties" with little sparklies that looked just like shad scales. Of course I only went there pick up a friend........

    I like having the scales to pick off at work when I am in a meeting. Reminds me of how much fun I had and how bad work sucks. :p

    thanks for the replies, i guess the bait man was right."shoot.......when i sell a couple more doz out of that tank i think i will jump in and take a bath". them scales sure do feel like kernels of popcorn stuck to your teeth dont they. need to invent something i think it would sell!!!!!!

    I don't even try to get them off any more. After spending a hot August afternoon picking several hundred out of gill nets, it doesn't matter how hard you scrub, their still gonna' be stuck to you someplace. I inevitabley find a couple stuck behind my ears while sitting in church a few days later...really grosses the wife out!!! mmmmmm...shad!
