Forget about it! I'd only spend that kinda dough on jig heads with dead eels attached. Those would be worth $10.00 for 2 and I'd like to think the bass are more "conditioned" to want to eat them.

I have no doubt that stripers learn to return to favorable conditions. If they show at a certain location at some point in the tide, they will often pass right there the next night. I am not going to cite any examples because there are so many. Suffice that if you have caught bass mid-tide at the Guzzles tonight, plan on them being there the next night.

Everybody here needs to go back to PAGE 1 of this thread and reread the last FOUR posts.

A more important question to me is how long does that learning last within the various species of animals? With dogs and cats, it lasts a damn long time. The study of animal behavior, to me, is one of the most fascinating subjects on earth.

I just reread those Mule. I've read where in a small "study lake", fw catch n release bass would be harder to catch on the same lure over time. Even their offspring would be a little more skittish than the parents were initially. I don't know how much that translates into other species though. While some lures seem to be less effective over time, you get ones like BTJs that just keep on producing (on stripers)...and well!

I think it reasonable to assume that behavior of one species implies similar results with other species. Trout fishing in legally required catch and release rivers, many trout swim up to you in your waders waiting -- without a fight -- to have the fly removed from their jaw. Not certain, but to me that sure implies learned behavior.
