    Cajun Red fishing line

 Does anyone use the cajun red fishing line. I have heard that it is virtually invisible under water. What do yall think, and is this line a good substitute for fluorocarbon on clear lakes. Opinions greatly appreciated.

 I have just begun using the tuff line, 14 lb. test. It is very smooth casting and has decent abrasion resistance. I don't know if it is invisible under the water, but the fish bit so I don't care if it is invisible. I don't fish many clear lakes so that I can't help you with.

 Red is suppose to be the first color to be absorbed into the water, followed by orange, yellow,green,blue,indigo, violet. ROYGBIV accronym to remember the colors

   Ok so if red is the first color why from confused (  5/4/2006 9:54:00 AM
 Ok so if red is the first color why the craze over red hooks and bleeding baits. Marketing?

   Red and color spectrum from Bobby@MEGASTRIKE-CAVITRON LURES (  5/4/2006 1:06:00 PM
 Red is the first color of the color spectrum to disappear under water- under certain water clarities and light penetrations. What that also includes is the amout of particles in the water such as plankton , algae ect.The color red actually turns grey then black. It has no use or benefit what so ever as a line color.It does not attract fish or disappear.The only place to utilize the color red is on the surface or in clear or ultra-clear water. Even at different times of the day(the amount of light penetrating the water)the color turns and fades. Marteting absolutly!!! If someone ever tells you they caught a fish in 30 feet of water on a red hook or line and it was because of the red and the red was a factor-no way- he just used what the fish wanted -when he wanted it. What you want in a line is clear. The clearest because of light refraction is Fluorocarbon-next was Stren clear.They were tested as the clearest of fishing lines

   Sooooo, here's the question... from Phantom  5/4/2006 1:44:00 PM
 Since red turns to grey, dark grey, black (depending on depth), are the fish able to determine that it is the same shade as blood from injured prey? Sure, they might not see "red", but they will/can/could (whatever) see a shade that looks like blood.

I don't know, but it seems logical.


   I was kicking my buddy's backside till from Ole Ed (  5/4/2006 7:26:00 PM
 he switched back to flourocarbon line. Too bad he wised up and took off the Cajun line. Here in MO and clear water it didn't work for him.

   fish and blood from Bobby@MEGASTRIKE-CAVITRON LURES (  5/4/2006 10:31:00 PM
 Believe me fish do not see blood. There is not enough blood in any preyfish for a preditor fish to detect it colorwise. Even if the prey would bleed profusely it would last about one second. After that it would be deluted so quickly by the water -it would go unnoticed by the preditor fish.NOW what the fish will and do see is what is called the red gill effect. Fish when they panic, flare their gills and in turn expose the red in their gills. I have discussed this with Dr. Loren hill almost 20 years ago when I started using red gill effects on jigs and spinnerbaits and yes buzzbaits. Thats the only reason I use a red blade on our Cavitrons.I also have painted on the flared red gills. My theory is that when the blade is underwater for that split second (and I have pictures) it looks like a red gill in the front of the bait. Over thousands of years of evolution that red gill become a focul point for preditor fish to attact. Another day and another subject is the spot on shad(the fake eye) It has been moving towards the tail more and more generation after generation -another day
