Scientists have discoved that bass are reasonable intelligent creatures, and yes they can remember lures.
Whether I'm watching one of those med shows like or my experience is more firsthand, I'm always amazed at the number of tools surgeons need to work. From 15 different types of scalpels, to who knows how many needles, forceps, hemostats those guys run through a lot of equipment.
Having a curious mind can have its drawbacks. For me it's a particular nuisance when I'm fishing trying to focus on the task at hand. One minute I'll be casting to a log, intent on retrieving my lure, and before I know it the bait is sitting still while my mind races off reflecting on life's great mysteries.
