Guide to North Florida Bass Waters

Many anglers are surprised to learn that many of the Florida state records, and even several world record fish, come from North Florida. In his book, Guide to North Florida Bass Waters, Larry Larsen focuses on the top bass rivers and lakes from the western tip of the Florida panhandle east to the Atlantic Ocean and south to, and including, St. Johns, Clay, Alachua and Levy counties. This region includes the St. Johns River, Lakes Talquin and Seminole, Orange Lake, Lake Lochloosa, the Suwannee, Apalachicola, Nassau and Santa Fe Rivers, and is the most productive in terms of big fish for all bass species!

While largemouth bass are the main focus, Guide to North Florida Bass Waters also mentions Suwannee bass, spotted bass, redeye and shoal bass. Also included are striped bass, hybrid striped bass and white bass. Information on lake records is included for those anglers wishing to prepare in advance to try to set their own. The award-winning author lists specific spots on each of the North Florida waters covered and reviews effective techniques that he and others have employed.

Dozens of photos, launching areas, maps, and other water details are also included for many of each region's lakes and rivers. The 192-page volume includes several appendices listing significant lakes in each county and surface acreage; addresses and telephone numbers of game and fish offices; and offices of county chambers of commerce. A comprehensive index includes a cross reference of lakes, rivers and creeks, bass species, cities, counties and fisheries information that will help anglers quickly locate and review each reference throughout the book.
