Has anyone ever tried taking photos of a fish?

I had a go earlier, I think it's time for a polariser.

Post your fish photos if you have any!

It's really hard to take photos of fishes. Respect for all who get them!

Got this one of a trout last summer:

and, although this isn't technically a fish, I do like this shot of a spotted eagle ray I took with a cheapie disposable underwater camera:

kinda funny how this turned out... read your thread about fish.. went out for a day trip yesterday to photograph wildlife and... was at a rapids photographing terns diving for fish when I kept hearing splashes... turned out being carp running a very shallow rapids to spawn.. must have been hundreds cause I watched em for at least 30 minutes and it was non stop... they were all over 6kg or so.. there were pelicans sitting at the end of the rapids waiting but these were all just a bit too large for them... got quite a few pics.. here are 2

no polarizer with me so did the best I could... I kinda like em.

Not quite a fish, but a really cool tidal pool. I managed this with my Minolta P&S.

Did you peek at the image information Wolfsong?

I want to try to get up to Botanical Beach when it isn't raining. Overcast is fine, but it's hard to get overcast without rain up there.
