Trick Photography!

Capt. Tricia shows off what is no doubt another solid Laguna trout, which was made even more special by how skinny it was caught. However!

We see this all the time in websites, magazines, and other miscellaneous promo shots. The thing looks huge, but in reality it only went 25 inches. Still a good fish, but...

The photo contest currently running in Texas Saltwater Fishing Magazine specifically says don't be pushing fish ridiculously close to the camera to make them appear larger than they really are.

Beware smoke and mirrors while salivating back at the office.  

Reality based fishing is...well, reality. Let's try to do that.
