I have bass fished basically all my life. I use to remember when a 5 lbs.+ bass would put up a good fight trying to get back to itís hiding spot after it has been hooked. That was back in the day when we would not only catch them for fun but also for food. Fast forward many years later and I think catch and release has made bass lazy. Before they would dog down fighting for their lives knowing odds are they were going on a stringer and were going to be dinner. Now it seems when you catch a bass it almost runs to the boat and wants to jump in. I feel bass are smarter than we think and itís like...ĒGD I fell for this again... might as well swim to the dudeís boat and jump in it so he can unhook me, take an embarrassing photo of my stupidity and then heíll release meĒ. Iím wondering how can I focus on un-caught stupid bass that still put up a fight like they know they are going to die. Any ideas?
