From the PublisherFrom Library Journal
Weiss is an outdoors writer of more than a dozen hunting and fishing books, including last year's counterpart, The Whitetail Deer Hunter's Almanac. Readers who like their prose packaged as numbered paragraphs of thematically organized facts and recommendations will appreciate this quick-read arrangement. There are useful tips and tactics on every page, but many segments were obviously culled from scientific press releases that only a biologist will care about. Since the 18 chapters aren't meant to be read in sequence, the same information often gets repeated two or more times; for example, the first two sections deal with the biology of largemouth and smallmouth bass, respectively, so several points, like how to tell them apart, get rehashed in both places. Other sections range from habitats to spawning behavior to the wide variety of modern tackle. Recommended for public libraries where bass fishing is popular.
