    Good luck Sean.
    I used to feed the eels in the river by my house when I was your age. They loved ham and cheese and my fingers .

    Are you going to a wharf or jetty to fish?

What this means is if you get one fish worm, no fish ham, your results are inconclusive. Not enough data. But if you have ten fish worms three fish ham, you have enough data for a stronger case.

    You current hypothesis is that worms are better for attracting fish, than ham. Your experiment is to test that.

    I suggest you include an anecdotal component. Put up a survey on the forum and have members vote. If they have caught fish on worms, vs if they have caught fish on ham.

    You can ask the forum members to carry out your experiment as well, to expand it and increase your volume of data. I will cheerfully put a worm in for an hour, a piece of ham in for an hour, and reluctantly put no bait in for an hour to add to your results.

    Don't forget to specify which species of fish your experiment relates to (fresh water or salt)?

    Stick all that in your homework and you will get yourself a good grade!
    i cant really do that now cause my teacher already published it on the internet but thanks anyway

    Jeez Tussock I bet you aced school as opposed to myself who attended to eat my lunch, cop the odd feel by the lockers and play rugby. Sean would do well to listen to you rather than me.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    And it probably would have sucked all of the fun out of it for you Sean. I am hoping that Tussock doesn't see this but I kind of think he will.
