Fishing is thousands of years old at this point, so why haven't fish evolved not to bite the bait yet?

    I fish a lot of "High traffic" areas by public docks where fish have learned to avoid worms and rubber lurers. The trick is to instead use flies and very skookum braided spider wire. Nobody else will get a nibble and ill be reeling em in on my cheapo fly rod.

    A lot of fish are often suspicious of bait, they're very hesitant to bite and often do "test bites"

    who says they haven't?
    >be me
    >fishing with uncle
    >on top of a barrier of stone right by the river
    >the water is clear and there's plenty of fish right underneath us
    >throw maggots
    >they all get devoured within 3 seconds
    >throw maggots on hook
    >the fish get near it, look at it, but don't bite
    >throw maggots + hook at the same time
    >the maggots all get eaten, the hook gets left alone
    I even tried using a smaller hook that was totally covered by the maggots, no use
    Some fish, especially in Europe (people have been fishing here for a lot longer + aryan fish are smarter), have indeed learned to avoid bait

    Too many fish for a few fishing line bait eaters getting caught to make a significant impact on the population of fish.

    Plus, most fishing currently is done by trawling, dragging giant nets that decimate sea floors and catch thousands of fish indiscriminately, assisted by echosounders and sonar to locate fish.

    So unless fish evolve to jam radars and hold knives in their fins to cut nets, they're doomed.

    Fish don't exist, they're genetically modified chicken that are sold for a higher price to fool morons. Animals cannot live in water, they would drown.

    Because the fish bite the hook, are caught, then eaten.
    There is no "learning process".
    The majority of plants and animals that are poisonous are not deadly.
    They make their predator sick or cause discomfort. Then that animal learns not to eat it.

      Learning has nothing to do with evolution. Evolution would be a non-negligible portion of average fish dying from fishing. Then the autistic fish that worries about that shiny curved bit becomes more reproductively successful and more fish are born with autism.

    It's almost like evolution isn't real and instead fish were intelligently created to provide themselves as food for humanity.

        claims of intelligent design typically presuppose an intelligence greater than that of man's. Why do you think either one of us should be able to explain it fully? Why cancer, anyway?

          >le god works in mysterious ways
          Your entire mythology was invalidated when its origins were better understood

          Pic related, this is the face of your god as he was depicted before he was declared the supreme and only real god for political reasons.

          The people before yours said that the end times would be a decline of many thousands of years during which religion would decay into nonsense and lies contrary to reality, and finally be forgotten as people simply ignored reality and began to behave as hedonists.

          If there is any number of gods out there then the best way to understand them is to understand the systems they created. Like evolution, which has been proven to be real.

              Hinduism has been unchanged since its creation. Christianity changed from several pagan faiths into judaism into christianity into islam and mormonism and gnosticism. Hmmm i wonder who got it right.

              Verdict: brahma created cancer as a physical manifestation of your bad karma.

    several kinds of baits and lures out there and just as many fishing techniques

    Thousands of years is not long enough for animals to avoid something. That's why so many species go extinct on short notice. Evolution is inherently random and flawed.
