Fishing Fact

Freshwater bass are considered opportunistic feeders, meaning they eat anything that comes near them when they're hungry. And although that is often true, especially if they're exhibiting extremely aggressive behaviors when food is limited, it's not always the case. Some studies have shown that when there is an abundance and variety of prey for fish to choose from, individual bass will key on specific foods while avoiding others. In cases like this anglers should be casting multiple offerings within any one area.

Photo Tip

Venture away from auto mode. Whether you use a quality point-and-shoot or DSLR, your first instinct is to set a new camera to auto and keep it there. In most situations this strategy produces good photos. But you can turn average pictures into stunning images by taking control of the settings. Don't start, however, by switching to full manual. Familiarize yourself with the two main settings, including what they do and how to use them, first. By using one of the Priority modes you'll choose one setting and your camera will automatically set the other. Use Aperture Priority to choose depth of field (how much of the image, from near to far, you want in focus), or Shutter Priority when you want to freeze or blur movement.
