Overview

Serious sport catfishing has gained tremendous popularity in recent years, but a dearth of serious catfishing information inhibits the complete angler. Jeff Samsel of Clarkesville, Georgia, fills the gap with Catfishing in the South, a comprehensive guide to finding and catching catfish in the southeastern United States.

No other catfishing book focuses on southern rivers and reservoirs, where this type of fishing is most popular. Beyond looking at species, habitats, gear, baits, and strategies from the perspective of the southern catfisher, Catfishing in the South includes detailed looks at several of the South’s premier destinations for trophy catfish. Samsel also presents information on catching smaller cats and on fishing from banks.

Relying on his own experience and on the expertise of individual veteran catfishers, some of whose faces show up in the twenty-nine photographs that illustrate the book, Samsel provides readers with all the tools they need for finding and catching all kinds of catfish from southern waters

Far too general.with chapters on noodling-recipes etc. could have condensed the actual fishing techniques foe 3 main species in three short chapters.
