The Long Con: Days 4/5: The Dinner Bell

Written By Angelo Bodetti on Friday, April 17, 2015 | Friday, April 17, 2015

It's day 5 of "The Long Con" and things have been pretty interesting. If you notice, I did not post and individual entry for Day 4. That's pretty much because nothing happened... I tossed some food their way and the fish ate it... There were no Jack sightings or anything out of the ordinary. I did however decide to use my second block of the Tournament Master Chum (check out my review) and again, nothing spectacular happened - the fish didn't seem to care at all...

Day 5 was also pretty normal except for the fact that I think the fish are starting to know when they are getting fed. If you remember, on Day 3 I wrote that the fish were essentially circling waiting to get fed. Well that didn't happen Day 4, so I'm thinking maybe they weren't circling to get fed, they were looking for leftover scraps...

Now it seems as though they know when they will get fed. The first few days of The Long Con (and all days before that), when the fish would hear my step on the dock, they would flee. Now it's the opposite. Much like Pavlov's dogs, the fish seem to have associated a sound with feeding time.

Every single time I step onto the dock or make a noise, the Mangrove Snapper come out from under the dock and start looking for the free grub that has been magically sprinkling from the sky...

Stay tuned for more updates - Since we are coming up on the weekend I will have more free time to try some new things and video a lot more of what's happening. I plan on attaching the GoPro to a dock piling to get an underwater view of this whole experiment.
