No matter where you live, you'll find great fishing for some type of fish. It may be catfish or sunfish in a local farm pond, carp in a nearby river, or crappies and bass in the lake across town. The beginning of this book shows you where different fish types (called species) live. As you page through this chapter, check out the small colored maps to see which species live in your state. And look closely at the drawings of the fish so you can tell what you have landed. So what species do you think will be your favorite to catch? This book covers - How do I make a fish bite?o Teaching kids proven methods of locating, catching, and handling a variety of species.- Is it a keeper?- What does my fish weigh?
