When the shiners weren’t in, it was truly disappointing as this was a deadly bait. The year prior, I promised I would pack some gear to fix this condition. When packing for this trip, I had arranged by bringing particular hooks I used when I fished in Portugal in the World Championships fishing the bloodworm. Instead of getting in the cold water and finding bloodworm, I kept an X acto blade in my box which I used to slice of a micro strip of night crawler. My hook was a size 22 which I connected to a thin carbon pole with some. 010 mm fishing line.
