They are attracted most by the color Yellow, then Black, Silver a very close third.
So you boys with your traditional black suits I feel for ya.
How this applies to (spearfishing for game fish while wearing…) ￼Camo suits: (impo) The point is to pose as a ‘UMO’ if you will, ‘Unidentified Moving Object’ to the fish. Studies done on the Galapagos Islands with certain species that have never seen man before do not show an inherit fear of us because we are a ‘UMO’ to them. It is inherited in their brain/genes to have a ‘knee jerk’ reaction to predator looking objects. So if we de-preditorize ourselves and place ourselves on the side of ‘UMO’ then the chances are decreased in knee jerk reactions and raised in the curiosity levels. This is not a set rule but merely an odds game. Increase your odds in areas and decrease in others to have greatest result.
Yes Bill is right, wearing his all black or all grey color suit still many game fish have come in very close to hang out and chat, but this isnt to say curiosity over ruled there inherit flee response. We’ve all touched a hot stove top at some point in our lifes…
p.s. Hey Bill Mac, if you believe with the majority in quantum physics, be annoyed. Because in a parallel universe YOU bought a camo suit and YOU are landing HUUGE WSB at YT right now!
