Will the biggest fish be caught from Dams where the forage base is known to be huge and constant, or from the best impoundment that has excellent forage and growth rates? Maybe from any river or lake that has ample forage, but that has little fishing pressure. I have fished some stretches of river most would say are not the best areas as far as structure goes, but my thinking is that fishing areas that have less pressure increase chances for big fish and definitly for a chance at the biggest fish. I wouldnt want to think that record fish can only come from major known locations as it might take my enthusiasum away from working my own waters with vigor. No matter where that fish lives, like all predators it becomes more vulnerable at certain times. Too little food makes it move to find more, sudden feed frenzie may put it at vulnerable locations, spawning,wintering and the ever changing enviromental and forage/baitfish cycles that it reacts to.
