Re: Colors in water confusion

Physics aside, it'll be interesting if a study can be done to train bass to differentiate between black and blue ie: if they eat a black color object, they'd be shocked and if they eat a blue color object, no shock and they swim on their merry way.

I drop a white colored bait down and estimate it’s visibility in feet as it’s lowered. This could differ from other colored objects in the same area but I use white as a baseline for water clarity.
