9781585745234: Knowing Bass: The Scientific Approach to Catching More Fish

Bass, especially largemouth bass, are easily the single most popular freshwater gamefish in the United States. Knowing Bass is a book about the science of bass fishing, with particular emphasis on the bass itself: What bass can sense, how they use their senses to feed, how they relate to fishing lures, and ultimately how they interact with anglers. Understanding why bass behave as they do will greatly improve your chances of being a better and more successful angler, no matter your present skill level. And that's the purpose behind this book, to improve everyone's chances of success at catching bass, no matter where or how they fish. A renowned aquatic biologist and expert in the field of bass behavior, Dr. Jones has made the finest and most up-to-date scientific research accessible to everyone who loves these great gamefish. Whether you fish with bait-casting, spinning, or fly tackle, the more you know about bass, the more and bigger fish you will catch. Topics covered include bass biology; life history; the bass's organs of vision, hearing, smell, and taste, including the smells and flavors bass like-and don't like; how smell and taste control feeding behavior; the best kinds of lures to trigger the attack response in various situations; what factors will make bass strike your lures and baits - and what might make them shy away. (6 1/4 x 9 1/4, 320 pages, color photos, b&w photos, charts)

Review:

"Scientific explanations of why bass do what they do and why they sometimes don't"--St. Louis Post--Dispatch

"Anyone. . . can see he genuinely enjoys his work. His appreciation of bass is as obvious as his vast knowledge" --Fishing Tackle Retailer


"Although this is admittedly a very 'angler-oriented' book, the author does provide substantial overviews of the life history that may be relevant to naturalists. . . .The book is clearly written for a lay audience, using anecdotes to emphasize points." --The Canadian Field-Naturalist

"The man knows his subject intimately. . . . If you're a serious bass angler, this nicely color-illustrated book must become part of your fishing research library"--The Washington Times
