    ambush

    Hi,

    could you please tell me what "ambush" means in the following sentence:

    We will show you the ambush of the biggest fish.

    Does it mean the place where the fish is hidden and waiting for its prey?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hanka

    Not surprising you are having trouble with this one - it's not at all clear whether its the fish ambushing its prey, or the fisherman ambushing the biggest fish...if ambush was the word intended.

    'Ambush' does not have any other meaning in the sense of 'place from which an ambush is launched'

    If it was a fisherman, wouldn´t it be "ambush for"? Is it possible to say that a fisherman is waiting in his ambush of his prey?
