The bottom is a main factor in the ocean
We have no trees, no meandering, no overhanging banks (almost none at least).
The water covers it all and above that... the sky.
The bottom influences access to food, water quality, shelter, local currents, temperature, wave action and a lot of other things. Of course the wind, the currents, the moon, tide and many other factors have their saying, but a spot with a no-good bottom will rarely hold fish no matter what other factors might be ideal.
Tell me the bottom...
...and I'll tell you how the fishing is. So you have to decide what the bottom is like. The bottom can be judged by different meassures; topography, structure/material and color. How these meassures are used I will discuss along the way.
