I do know that I haven't found that anyone I'm fishing with that is using regular mono is getting any more bites than I am and vise versa. I like the red because I can see it above water which makes it easier to watch my line.

AMEN!

Power Pro has a red line out also.

Phantom Red is the name, and I purchased a 1500 yd spool of 50lb power pro for $100

:D

I love it!

Scott, I believe it to all be a marketing gimmick for the simple fact that though red disappears, the object it's covering doesn't, only turns to black. I was watching a video yesterday of what different colored lures do underwater as they travel deeper and eventually everything turns to black anyhow.

It's all a bunch of hocus pocus hoooey.

You want your hooks to be invisible? Coat them in a clear coat Ultra-Violet (UV) blocker, basically a sunscreen. Fish have a natural sun blocker in their skin (ever see a sunburned fish?) and it's my belief that fish see in color, but not as we do, but rather much like a temperature heat index/color index. I think different fish and other prey items put off different heat/UV sigiatures in water, thus making one creature less seen than another one.

I believe the slime coat on a fish is this UV blocker itself.

 Very curious theory. Might have to do some reseach on this one. Something else to occupy my mind in all this rain

The problem is, it's all theory and it's all opinion.   What we need is proof one way or the other. Until then I will believe whatever I chose to and I will let you believe whatever you choose to do.  Permit me the same courtesy.   If I ever get a chance to communicate with a Bass or other fish, I will let you know........  lo lo
What do I believe?
I believe:
Red turns to black at 15 meters. before that it's red.
I believe Red does not hinder fishing.
I believe red hooks do add something to attract fish under certain conditions (Namely clear blue skies)
I have no opinion on red line but I haven't gone out of my way to try it.

I believe Jack Daniels is good for hair growth   ;D

I believe scotch drinkers are egomaniacs   ;)

I believe coors and coors light are over rated   :P

I believe I will go fishing this weekend   ~c~

The only one of these that is certain is that I will go fishing this weekend......   :)

These types of post always draws good discussion and it is interesting to see what most people believe and don't believe as well as the reasoning behind their belief or disbelief. To break this all down is quite simple:

Do you have to have a big fancy bass boat to compete or be successful in bass fishing?
Do you have to have top quality rods and reels to compete or be successful in bass fishing?
Do you have to have $15 crankbaits or other high dollar baits to compete or be successful in bass fishing?
Do you have to have red line or red hooks to compete or be successful in bass fishing?

The answer to all of these questions is NO.
There is one thing that you must have to compete or be successful at bass fishing.

It depends on what type of light he has in his house. The keys may disappear 15 inches away. :roll2:

Heres my two cent....This topic will never cease.....we caught fish and lots of them before they came out with this marketing gimmick...to get us to buy into the color Red..I myself like to keep it simple so I'll stay with what has proved to catch fish a good presentation and movement and trash the rest..IMHO.....

Now where are those apple red worms I caught them fish on the other day ....  ~gator ....  :roll2:
