Do Your Bass Plugs Talk To You?


Author(s):
Abstract:
This month North Carolina fishermen observed a large bass feeding on minnows, but they noticed the bass did not have eyes. While eyesight plays an important role in feeding, bass can also sense vibrations along their lateral lines. Fishermen can use rattle-type plugs, which are lures designed to attract bass through sound as well as sight.
