Fishing, Freshwater

Bass Fishing Fundamentals; Ken Schultz This is almost as complete a source for largemouth bass fishing as Arnov's book is for saltwater species. I would highly recommend it for the beginner and most bass fishermen should find it both entertaining and useful. When I first started fishing with my two boys, this book and the weekend fishing shows kept us from going completely fishless.(Hard to Find.)

Larry Larsen On Bass Tactics: How You Can Catch More and Bigger Bass; Larry Larsen. As you see below, Larry is a very prolific author. He packs a lot of information in each book and has a very enjoyable style of writing. I have never been disappointed in any of his books. I will try to add more descriptions as time allows.

Peacock Bass Explosions!: Where, When & How to Find Them, How to Catch Them; Larry Larsen If you are planning to try our peacock bass then this book will get you off to a good start. I would like to say this is the best book on the subject, but so far it is the only book that I have found on the subject. Larry is very knowledgeable about fishing for all peacock species in their native South and Central America. In this book he does a fine job of applying that knowledge to what you should expect to encounter here.

McClane's Field Guide to Freshwater Fishes of North America This book is for the curious fisherman. When we first started fishing we saw many fish in the lakes and canals and heard or read stories about how to catch different species, but we didn't know what names (and techniques) applied to which fish. This book's detailed descriptions and excellent color illustrations were a great help. It is also a great way for the young angler to expand their knowledge.
