Triggering the bite
« on: August 01, 2020, 12:55:21 PM »
We often find ourselves in conversations about areas, structure, cover, depth, so on and so forth, if we can put all of this together and manage to hit it at the right time we can be on top of the world.

For the most part however our struggles come more often than not, why is that? Why can we not outsmart an animal with a brain that is a 16th the size of ours?

Maybe exploring some thought may help, or at least make for interesting and informative conversations, there is an old adage that is used a lot, “They don’t get that big by being stupid” well, if they aren’t stupid then just exactly how smart do they get with such a small amount of grey matter?

I don’t think we are giving them enough credit myself, how much grey matter does one need to be completely in touch with their environment? Maybe on the other hand we have too much of it and we are not putting what we do use of it to good use??

They are of primal character, of primal instinct passed down from one generation to the next for thousands upon thousands of years and we are tasked to simplify a trick that will play upon their instinct to strike at something and then try to understand their reasoning for doing so, it’s crazy if you think about it a little, maybe even bordering on the brink of madness.

I don't know how much of what we know has been put there by the tackle manufacturers and their sponsored fishermen , or by questionable science ie, Berkeley gulp and Power products
 Leaving that alone, just will state I dont buy most of the information , therefore since I never use those products I have no opinion on their usefulness
  A long time ago,at the inception of In-Fisherman Al Linder put this small bass booklet out and he talked about strike zone and  "active fish" so Ii went out and fished for a lot of years ,with this information in my brain 
Here is my non-professional 2 cents
On any given lake there are active fish to be caught in different depths and taking different lure
Some times 2 guys in boat parallel to the shore  can have one guy fishing a 15 foot drop,rocky with Jigs and craw fish imitations and do well  The other guy will be throwing a stick or a worm ,on the shallow side to weeds,trees and such ,and he will catch fish
  I am a firm believer if you sit high and you can see the fish,they can see you and it makes the bite harder
 I am just talking avg everyday bass,I fish  neither for competition or trophies,but this is from 4 decades fishing

Keepin It Simple and Reasonable
