Default Why do pink rat finkees work so well on trout...

I know that trout are some of the dumbest critters that swim...you watch one swim down a shoreline and they sample everything that falls in front of them...sticks, bugs, leaves, cottonwood seeds...you name it...

But in the scud and invertebrae infested waters of ElevenMile, Antero, North Park where the entire food base is olive or brown...they grab flourescent pink like it is going out of business and is a collectors item...

Is it just cuz it stands out and they sample it like everything else...it doesnt make any sense but it works...

Scuds turn pink (like cooked shrimp) when they die. Might have something to do with that.

Good point. Pink seems to be the flavor of choice but hasn't even been workin for me lately. Gonna fish the Lake John tourney this comin weekend and I'm stinkin soooo bad this year I don't know what to try. Pink rats of some sort will still be in my ammunition. Goin with Z and a couple of his buddies, I'm gonna fish it with the intent to land a decent fish.
