Bass Fishing In California Book Review
by Donny S.
I have a book called Bass Fishing In California - Secrets of the Western Pros written by Ron Kovach. And here is my little review for it.
For some reason, I can't remember how I got a hold of this book... someone either gave it to me, or I bought it from a second hand store like the Goodwill. A few years ago, I got into fishing really heavily and was quite busy working, fishing all the time and whatever else, and now I have this book.
Anyway, I really like this bass fishing book. Although it seems to be dated as a 1998 and 1999 edition, the information inside of it covers the same methods and techniques that bass fishermen still use everyday. The principals are still the same today.
I have had this book for a few years now. I'm always going through it and learning more and more all the time. There is just so much awesome stuff in it. Here is what's inside...
There are like 3 main sections which are referred to as Book I, Book II, and Book III. Just to quickly point out, Book II is all about the lakes to fish at in California. I'm not sure how accurate the information is for that section now days because things change all the time.
But the rest of the book is golden.
There is some really good stuff that teaches beginners what kind of tackle they would need, and also deeper details for more experienced bass fishermen about high quality gear and equipment. Then it talks about electronics, some cool tips and tricks that the pros use, and a whole boat load of different bass fishing techniques...
There are chapters about everything from rigging techniques, plastic worm fishing, crankbait fishing, top water fishing, using spoons, jigging, spinner baits, using other soft plastics and creature baits, fishing with live bait, fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass and spotted bass, using big baits to catch big bass, how to fish the different seasons throughout the year, fishing different types of structure, finesse fishing, flipping and pitching all year long, and much more stuff like advanced tips and tricks.
This is one book about bass fishing that I don't plan on getting rid of any time soon.Jason's response:
I'm no stranger to this book either. It seems cool, easy to read and understand, and I've even picked up a couple good pointers out of it too.
If anybody is interested in getting a copy for themselves, you can find "Bass Fishing In California: Secrets of the Western Pros" here...
Thank you Donny for sharing your fishing book review.
