It’s official. According to this story from the Huffington Post, scientists have confirmed that fish fart to communicate warning signlas to each other when they feel danger is near. The story is about herring and the super high-pitched bombs they blow, the frequency of which can only be picked up by other herring (and sometimes whales, which stinks for both the whales and the herring I guess). There have been no fart studies on gamefish yet, but have you ever rolled up to a hunk of structure in a bass boat, suddenly seen lots of bubbles, then caught nothing? You might have gotten fart busted. On a related note, do you think big carp and catfish would have worse farts then, say, a brook trout? I do. Have a good weekend.
