    She really did, I couldnt get her to stop. Usually she gets hungry or there are several bathroom breaks but she fished all day and If her line was broken well I had better get on it or I got the look. We had a blast, she even started baiting her own hook with the pilchards and was even taking the fish off of the hook by the end of it. I cant wait for the get together breakfast and skip trip.

    Paul they are small shad, i just call them pilchards for some reason...we were fishing them with a splitshot and a tiny hook and letting them down to about 20 ft and then start bringing them up slowly. It was the best way we found to catch them in the daytime when they are deeper.
