I've always wanted to take a picture of a fish jumping but could never do it. This fish isn't really jumping but is fighting being reeled in by a fisherman. While I was taking pictures of ducks on a little lake in Salida a fisherman caught a fish and I was able to snap a few shots.

He did throw it back afterwards.

I doubt this will score that well but it is a shot I like.

Nice capture, seems a bit soft on the focus & the water (bottom) is a bit blown.

I like slowly figuring out what this is. Interesting capture.

Need to see more of the fish. Pretty hard to recognize what we're seeing.
