Bass fishing requires more than just patience—it requires cunning and insight.
Largemouth bass are the most popular game fish in the US. Found in nearly every state, they present an exciting and powerful challenge to anglers of all levels.
In The Pocket Guide to Seasonal Largemouth Bass Patterns, author Monte Burch offers advice on determining where to find big bass, and how to effectively catch them. This guide is broken into eight sections covering the most distinct seasonal periods in the life of a bass, beginning with early spring and the prespawn and carrying through to the postspawn and finally the winter.
Each section includes information on that season’s typical water conditions, temperature, and clarity, and is supplemented with maps that illustrate the best locations to find the biggest bass. Burch also gives time-tested advice on which gear works best, and when.
This updated and expanded edition now features color photographs. So whether you are a beginning largemouth-bass angler or an experienced fisherman, The Pocket Guide to Seasonal Largemouth Bass Patterns will prove to be an essential guide for you to carry at all times.
