Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Homer Circle, Angling Editor Sports Afield Here is a must read. However, you don't just read Caught Me A Big 'Un — as you stroll through the lines you laugh, learn, think and rethink the fishing tips, and wind up with a nodding grin. It's just Me spending a day chunkin', windin', and gigglin' with ol'Jimmy!

Ted Giddings The Berkshire Eagle (Pittsfield, MA) If you want to learn how to catch bass from a book and enjoy every page, read Caught Me A Big 'Un....

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Jimmy Houston Outdoors has been a popular TV staple (ESPN) for two decades. Here, writing with freelancer Price, Houston shares his accumulated wisdom about and experience with bass fishing. The pieces are very informal, brief and jerky-Houston says the book involved a tape recorder instead of a TV camera. Topics include technique, bait, boats, rods and how to remove a hook from the hand. Major factors in fishing for bass are water conditions, type of water, time of year and weather, Houston shows. Reminiscing about tournaments he and his wife have fished, he compares tournament fishing with long-distance auto racing in terms of the concentration required. This book is limited in scope; bass fishermen and ~ -women will appreciate it, but Houston's medium is television, not print. (June)

    Best Fishing Book Ever

    I've read quite a few fishing books but this doesn't bore you with lesson after lesson after lesson. This book tells some great stories and also is very informative on how to be a better bass angler.
