With a few exceptions, no mater where you live, you're probably not too far from water – water that holds fish. One of the many great things about fishing is that different types of water hold different kinds of fish. And finding them depends on knowing the geography of the area where you're fishing, the structure of the body of water, the time of year, the time of day, water temperature and depth – you get the picture. Whether you like variety or you're a creature of habit, knowing where fish spawn, seek food, and behave will help you catch them.
