The title says it all. I consider myself a skilled outdoorsman and nature nut. I searched high and low for a good fish guide covering the midwest U.S. and turned to the ol' reliable sources -- Golden, Peterson, Audubon, and National Geographic. None of them, and dozens of others I reviewed, held a candle to this book. I wanted a comprehensive book, but I didn't need the salt-water information. There aren't too many oceans in Minnesota! The art work in the guide is the best I've ever seen. The narratives for each species is an added bonus. Most guides only give descriptions on animals, this guide does that but goes well beyond that giving interesting and practical insights on behavioral characteristics and some fishing tips. It's also written in a very user friendly style; common and slang titles are also included for each fish, a very helpful feature for those minor wars with friends of what a 'dogfish' really is (or 'are' as the book describes). If you are a beginning angler or an a fishing expert and live in the central (from Canada to Mexico) United States, you absolutely need to buy this book.
