About the Author
If there's anyone who can authoritatively cover all bases of the sport fishing world, it's Ken Schultz. Most recently the Fishing Editor for espnoutdoors.com, Schultz is widely known as having been a longtime staff writer, and Fishing Editor, of "Field & Stream," where he wrote about all types of fishing topics and traveled widely to compile information. Schultz was Inducted into the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame in 1998 and is a former holder of seven IGFA-certified fishing world records. Tens of millions of people have read Ken Schultz's views on fishing, whether in articles published during his three-decade-plus tenure in the pages of "Field & Stream" or in his 17 published books. ESPN called him "Mr. Fishing USA," and the Outdoor Life Network dubbed him "one of the best fishermen on the planet." The "Wall Street Journal" said his 1916-page "Fishing Encyclopedia" was "a treasure"; "USA Today" said it was "exhaustive"; and the "New York Times" said it was "a major accomplishment."
