Fishing Hot Spots' Latest Book Targets Big Bass

by: Mike Michalak,

(11/13/2001 - Rhinelander, WI) It was raining in Georgia on Thursday, June 2, 1932. Why should that interest you? It's the day George Perry caught a largemouth bass weighing 22 pounds, 4 ounces. It's a record that still stands and many believe won't be broken. Or will it?

You can find out in the latest "Destination Series" book from the nation's largest fishing map publisher, Fishing Hot Spots, Big Bass! In Search of Trophy Largemouth.   Anglers have flirted with the record over the years and now you'll know where these huge fish are biting and what methods avid bass fishermen are using to find them.

Author Steve Price has been an award-winning writer and photographer more than 25 years, specializing in freshwater fishing. A senior writer for Bassmaster Magazine, Price has traveled the world and fished the most famous largemouth waters along the way. Big Bass! profiles many of these lakes within the 192 pages, jammed with detailed maps plus tips and techniques used by anglers specifically targeting trophy fish.

You'll discover why these fish are different and learn some of the secrets to finding them. Presentations, lure selection, live bait, the effects of weather and other facets of bass fishing are explained. And you won't believe the pictures. 

The book is presented in a large, 8 1/2 x 11 format and features those waters with the greatest trophy potential on the continent. Among the lakes profiled are: Castaic and Clear in California, Okeechobee and Toho in Florida, Fork and Toledo Bend in Texas and many more. There's also a look at the Mexican connection, a resource bound to challenge the record books.

The new Big Bass! book joins other titles in the "Destination Series" of publications from Fishing Hot Spots; Wisconsin's Top Muskie Lakes, Chicagoland's Top 30 Fishing Trips, Smallmouth! America's Top Bass Waters and Walleye! The Top Lakes & Rivers of North America.
