    Probably live pilchards or something similar. The bait boys job is quite important apparently. If he doesn't throw enough bait the school doesn't hang around.
    Back in the eighties there was a Aussie Olympic weight lifter who poled tuna for a job, so there was a bit of tuna stuff on tv because he was doing alright at Olympics. Very interesting.

    Year thought of that @223nut. But it looks like anyone behind the poles needs to wear a stack hat.
