There's no determined right way to catch a fish.

Indeed! There are many ways. The trick is to figure out if there are ways that match between terrestrial/aerial and aquatic fish-catchers.

There are many ways to catch a fish.  I wonder which is more effective on average?

By numbers? Swallowing. There are probably more fish that catch food through ram-suction than any other method. Open mouth, swim very fast, and swallow the food that goes in. Most aquatic animals, including many mammals, do it this way, too.
