Recent Study Shows That Bass Fish May Avoid Certain Lures

As time goes on sometimes your bait no longer works in the way it did before, and this can be very stressful for anglers. Some people think that the fish have gotten smarter over time, and a recent study may prove that to be true. University of Florida researchers have found evidence that bass actually avoid certain lures. Read more about this study below…

Devil’s Hole Lake had very little angling pressure when the scientists/fishermen got there. But before breaking out rod and reel, they used electro-fishing gear to gauge the bass population — 347 fish greater than 10 inches. Then UF technicians Matt Young and Davis Waldorf fished three days per week for four weeks using two very different lures — a chrome-and-black lipless Rat-L-Trap crankbait and a four-inch, plum-and-emerald-flake Gary Yamamoto Senko stick bait fished weightless with a 3/0 offset worm hook. Both lures were attached to 20-pound braided line with a four-foot, 20-pound-test fluorocarbon leader.
