If you believe some fishermen fish are intelligent. They seem to have the ability to escape their most effective lures and hooks. They can steal bait from the best fishermen. Try as we may that big one eludes us. The one that got away is still taunting us. The fish have brains and smarts beyond some of the best of us. I think that these tales of giant intelligent fish are exaggerated excuses for failure. The fishermen need to perpetuate this story line to continue seeking the great intelligent fish. Luke Weil can fish like n other but rarely get fish.
