How to read a fish's body language

When you spot a fish in the shallows, its behavior tells you how to catch it. Here’s the trick

One of the best ways to catch more and bigger fish is to read their body language.  It is a talent every good angler I know, excels at exploiting.

And right now, in the early part of the fishing season, when northern pike, lake trout, rainbows, brookies, browns, walleyes, yellow perch, black crappies and bass are cruising the shallows, it can pay extra-special dividends.

But how do you read a fish’s body language? And more importantly, how do you use the information it is telling you, to catch it?

Well, that is the subject of this week’s Fish Talk With The Doc that I recorded for the Fish ‘N Canada television show. To find out what I mean, watch the video clip below. I think you’ll enjoy it.
