Angling For Success |
---|

The most fun Timmy had all summer was the five-day fishing trip he went on with his dad. Each day of the trip they used a different type of natural bait and a different artificial lure and always had great success - on one day they caught four fish, on each of two days they caught five fish, and on each of two days they caught six fish! Each day, Timmy's dad also taught him a different fisherman's knot (one day he learned the Blackwall hitch). From the information provided, can you determine the knot Timmy learned on each day (Monday through Friday) of the trip, as well as the natural bait (one was bread dough) and artificial lure (one was a plug lure) used on each day and the number of fish they caught?

- They used the corn-kernel bait later in the week than they used the spinner lure, which they used later in the week than when they used worms as bait (which wasn't on Monday). They did not use the corn-kernel bait and the jig lure on the same day.
- Timmy learned the barrel knot the same day that he used the fly lure. They didn't use minnows or cut bait on the day that he learned the barrel knot. The day Timmy learned the nail knot wasn't the day he used cut bait.
- The day Timmy learned the nail knot (which wasn't the day he used the corn-kernel bait), he and his dad caught more fish than on the day they used the streamer lure but fewer fish than on the day they used minnows as bait.
- The jig lure (which wasn't the one used the day Timmy learned the fisherman's bend or the day he learned the turtle knot) was used on a later day of the week than the days on which at least two other lures were used. The jig lure wasn't used on the day that Timmy learned the nail knot (which he learned at some point later in the week than the day on which worms were used as bait).
- The corn-kernel bait (which wasn't used on Friday), wasn't used on the same day as the streamer lure (which wasn't used on the day Timmy learned the turtle knot), or on the same day as the fly lure (which wasn't used on a day that six fish were caught).
