Catchability

Dr. Hal Schramm discusses how an abundance of fish in a given lake doesn't always mean you'll catch them.

Dr. Hal shares information from studies done that express catchability of fish in lakes. It seems that a lake with a lot of fish isn't always the best place to go fishing. Instead you need to keep your eyes open for lakes that aren't producing enough food for the fish. Lakes with fast growing fish means that they have an abundance of food and won't be as apt to bite your bait on the other hand on lakes without much food you're sure to catch more fish. However don't forget about the lakes that have an overabundance of food because conditions change form year to year and can affect the food supply on the lake meaning a once slow lake can become very active in a season. .
