    To me they dont seem to be in perfect focus and the weeds in the foreground are very distracting you have the right idea though for a good picture

    the fight with these shots are overcast reflection and too much other stuff in the way ...
    and being fish ... well - they just won't sit still long enough to make several attempts at a shot ...

    Camera Make: Canon
    Camera Model: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XT
    Image Date: 2006:12:24 12:52:39
    Flash Used: No
    Focal Length: 130.0mm
    CCD Width: 4.50mm
    Exposure Time: 0.0063 s (1/160)
    Aperture: f/2.8
    ISO equiv: 400
    White Balance: Auto
    Metering Mode: Matrix
    Exposure: Action program (based towards fast shutter speed)

    I would retry these with an f stop of f8, lower the shutter speed (these are fish not planes) and increase ISO. Preset your focus and shoot when the fish are in the area you have focussed on.

    at f2.8 your dof is just too shallow to catch them.
