Albacore/bonito hooks...stainless?

I may be getting a bit overly cautious here, but have any of you noticed problems fishing for hardtails when you tie flies on bright stainless hooks? My inclination is that this really shouldn't be a problem since these fish feed in a flash, and don't really inspect a fly like a striper on Monomoy in August.

Please correct me if my assumption is wrong. If so, I could start tying these patterns on hooks with a duller matte or black finish if it really makes a difference.
