I think fish see shades of colors, lights or darks. Most colors catch fisherman not fish.
I agree 100%. I can't scientifically prove my view but the "experts" that say otherwise can't really prove theirs either. :-)
Nature says otherwise... I can't help but imagine fish themselves come on all various shapes and sizes for a reason too.
That said, bass are predators based less on sight than other aspects and have to make a rapid decision if something is food or not. An unnatural color like neon pink is definitely NOT just a leaf fluttering down in the water, and likely warrants an exploratory chomp of opportunity for a fish who has never seen it before.
But a cautious bass would disregard an obviously unnatural color as not food all the same I imagine, and instead be more likely to explore something matching forage but appearing vulnerable prey.
Now for the part where 3 people tell me I give them too much credit as always.
