      They are aggressive fish, sometimes moreso than bass. They are curious, but if you get a bait around their spawning beds they will attack it no matter what.

      That aggressive bite is what makes catching them so fun.

          It seems to me that a lot of times fish will take a test bite to see if it is good food, other times they know what is presented is food.
          Are they stupid? They have a BB size brain.

              yes, they may have a bb size brain, but think preportionatly, they are usualy what, 3 pounds?
              So really, they may have a normal size brain, and fish do get smarter, like when a lake is highly pressured they may not bite worms, or crank baits anymore. Fish may not be as stupid as we think, they are just curious.

                Think of it this way, if a big hot pink thing fley 3 inches infront of you're face, you would go and look at it and try to figure out what it is. Bass do the same, they just mouth it because they have no hands, so they taste it, feel it, and either eat it or spit it back out.

                    Panfish are opportunist. They spend lots of time protecting themselves from predators so when some easy pickins come their way they strike.

                      I think they are just hungry.
