How Smart Are These Fish
Posted July 06 2012 - 09:58 PM
Now I got back there 1-3 times a week and I'm luck to get one. I'm changing it up using spinners, t-rigged creatures cranks etc and still flukes and senkos. I know there is not a lot of presurre there and at this point I see the fish sometime bumping the baits. Do you think these fish are hip to the game? I've also fished this spot under a variety of weather conditions and same thing. Do you think now they are not gonna bite anything that is our of the ordinary ?

We were catching nice bass regularly along a section of lake Erie shore. We decided to dive it to learn what made it productive. The bottom was rocky. As we went along we turned over a few, and bait (crayfish, goby, darters) would shoot out. Then, a few bass began to follow us. As we turned over the stones, the bass would attack the prey, soon we had better than a dozen around. after a few stones, we could put our hand on a stone, nod to the bass, who would assume an attack posture, and flip the rock. All you saw was the flash of bronze.
I dive the same section of the upper Niagara river Regularly. I began to notice the same few bass stayed with me the entire dive. As I work slowly along the bottom, I would kick gobies out of the alga that tends to collect in the slower parts of my drift. These bass knew it and flocked to us as soon as we hit the water. they must have keyed in on our exhaust bubbles. It went on for two seasons. The ringleader, who we named Tyrone must have passed on, because I don't see him this year . I could touch him, he became so comfortable with us.
They are smart, for sure. Their brazenness and aggressiveness is their weakness.
Here's one who has his own place
