"The Ultimate Fish Predator"


We as anglers are predators... no matter if you keep your prey or practice catch and release, (Fight the Good Fight! Catch. Release. Fight Again).  The one thing I've noticed is most Homo sapiens, ya' know humans, see a lot of things different.  For most of us our learning process is backwards.  Dude... its so plain and simple!  If you want to catch more fish and become the ultimate fisherman... the ultimate predator, you have to study what controls your prey.  For example... The Bass.  Bass are predators... so if you want to understand them you need to study what controls them.  To understand the owl you would study the mouse.  To understand the tiger you would study the deer, to understand the bass you must study the crawfish, the shad, the bluegill and so on.  Understand!  Yet we as humans study the bass so many times with little or no consideration for the study of what controls it.  So get out there.  Get on the water and start studying your preys, prey!  Go and do it!  It's the most important thing an angler can do in order to transform into... "The Ultimate Fish Predator" And remember, we humans have eyes in the fronts of our heads.  We are born predators!

This is what makes fishing so interesting to me, knowing that I have to outfox the prey. Thanks for reminding all of us that this is our mission

I agree with Bill and will add that it's great fun to sometimes not know what you're going to catch.
