During the 20 years I worked as editor of a state wildlife agency magazine, there was a bulletin board covered with scores of fishing photos just outside my office. We used it to display photos sent to us by readers.
Most of those photographs showed a person grinning at the camera while holding a big fish. Probably 90 percent were shot indoors or in a carport; very few were taken in a boat or even at a dock. They were, with few exceptions, terrible photographs.
