Breather... so far!
Mar 9, 2004
We all try to be pretty silent under water... we try!

The lateral line of the fish works great on detecting low vibrations and changes on pressure, right?

They must then sense our hearts banging: for a fish we must be like a swimming dance party: bommbom... bommbom... bommbom...

I've been wondering about for a while! but I'm not sure how to check it?

That may explain why the fish seem to be attracted to a still diver, camo or not.

May be somebody with a more expert opinion?... any opinion!
you raise a good point Pablo since many bottom and open water species including snapper, jacks, and im told most pelagics will come when you lie motionless whether it be on the bottom or mid-water. I totally agree with you here. Have some karma!
Hey I'm not crazy after all...

I was thinking to get one of this sill ladies... the ones on the shops... you know what ya mean ! and get her down with my weight belt to see the faces of the fish...

But all the ones I know seem to have a heart... well kind of!

And need to compare the results with another dummy making some kind of heart noise. Could be good fun, but too complicate to really work :confused: .

Any idea?
