If you are serious about bass fishing, this is a must have for your library. Bill knows what he is talking about. His explinations make sense and ring true. Does not rehash the same old cliches of other outdoor writers because he knows it and does it. Bill is a master at what he does and this book will make you a better fisherman if you pay even half attention to what he has to offer.

Bill Murphy is the king of trophy bass fishing. I learned more about the art of trophy bass fishing from this book in one night than I had learned in 15 years of fanatical bass fishing.

This book speaks only to the specific ways to catch and pursue the really trophy sized bass. Reading it will raise your interest to the point that you will want to try all the tricks of the trade in order to experience the really big thrills of catching the really big bass. The information is exact. The author explains very specifically the bait, method, and patience it takes in order to entice the really big ones to strike.

Format: Paperback
This book answers all the questions shallow water fishermen have regarding structure fishing. Shallow waters are popular with largemouth and its hard to tear yourself away from the shallows if you don't understand structure fishing. Bill explains how bass relate to stucture and the techniques he uses to catch them. After moving to Tennessee, I was stumped trying to catch bass in Tennessee's highland reservoirs. I thought it was impossible. Since reading Bill's book, I havn't landed any monsters, but I have increased my total weight at the scales and the size of the checks I've been cashing. Yes, you can apply Bill's approaches to bass fishing in your tournament fishing! This book is more like a text book written by a professor who has conducted numerous experiments and proven his theories. It is obvious that Bill contributed a great deal of his time to bass fishing and has aquired a great wealth of information. He shares this wealth, generously, in this book. Its not just for Southern California anglers. These techniques are applicable to structure that can be found in shallow lakes, on the lower end of probably all lakes, and even on ledges and points of large river run lakes. I wish I would have read this book fifteen years ago. Special thanks to Mrs. Murphy who handles distribution.

I bought this book in 1992 while living in Northern California and fishing tournaments. I was amazed that a fisherman would divulge all Bill put in this book. I don't believe he held anything back, well except photos and coordinates of all his key spots--yet he gives enough instruction you should be able to find them yourself. I found it extremely helpful and used the principles often.

I am quite sure Bill was not properly compensated with the treasure he has shared with us.

Recently returning to the San Diego area I will now be able to apply these gems on the home water.

Great perspective to apply to other areas of bass fishing. The author is very non-traditional in his approach. If you want to catch a lot of fish, this probably isn't the book for you.

I can't believe a resource like this is available. I live in Orange County CA. This book's focus is on how to target big bass in my backyard: Southern CA reservoirs. Pick your lake in SD, the IE, or LA.

Seems like many bass fishing books are fluffy and focus on the South and East of the Mississippi. I lived there. It's a different game than ours in CA. Like a desert golf course vs. a tropical course -- one's not better than the other; they just different. This book is for Southern CA. And it's a good read.

I'm not going to go into why because everyone else did a better job than could I. Just buy it if you are a bass angler who gets Disneyland CA resident discounts because of your zip code.
