Fish ain’t smart

A lot of fishermen spend a lot of time and energy trying to figure out how to outsmart fish. But if you stop and think about it, this is pretty ridiculous. Fish are stupid. They don’t have much in the way of intelligence or wit. They rely on instinct to stay alive. So your goal is not truly to outsmart the fish, but to trick his instincts with a baited hook or artificial lure.

Fish are all pretty dumb, but some fish are dumber than others. Now, don’t get me wrong here — I don’t want somebody to think I’m insulting their favorite fish. Being dumb doesn’t necessarily make a fish easier to catch. Two of the dumbest fish I know are redfish and largemouth bass.
