by - Shawn Perich - 2006

Each year, more than 30 million anglers go after these popular freshwater fish. This basic outdoor reference book in the Freshwater Angler series is a complete how-to guide with detailed, step-by-step information accompanied by close-up photographs. The author identifies each common North American species, discusses where to find it and reveals what strategies and equipment work best for catching sunfish (bluegill, redear, pumpkinseed, redbreast, warmouth, green, longear), perch (yellow, white, Rio Grande, Sacramento, flier), crappies and bass. Chapters include details on fishing from a boat versus the shore, finding the best rod, reel and line, choosing the best terminal tackle, keeping live bait, fly fishing and ice fishing methods for success.
