Shallow Water Bass

From the popular Lake Okeechobee to little-known Blue Cypress Lake, this is the most comprehensive book of its kind. Larry Larsen's Guide to South Florida Bass Waters focuses on the top bass rivers and lakes from Brevard County through Osceola and Polk Counties, to Manatee County in the West coast and south to the sawgrass canals of South Florida. This region includes Lakes Tohopekaliga, Kissimmee, Okeechobee, Poinsett, Tenoroc, the St. Johns River, Winter Haven Chain, the Everglades and many others, and has the State's most nationally-recognized lakes.

While largemouth bass are the main focus, Guide to South Florida Bass Waters also mentions peacock bass and hybrid striped 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 South 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 the region's lakes and rivers. The 192-page volume includes several appendices listing the 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.
