HASH(0xa06736fc) out of 5 stars Awesome art April 4 2015
By Gary M. Brown - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you fish the Gulf of Mexico, you'll love this book. The only reason I didn't give it a fifth star is because I thought the art, however awesome it is, was a tad inaccurate on several species but not enough to mislead identification.

HASH(0xa06735f4) out of 5 stars Best of its Kind Oct. 18 2009
By Lisa H. Gros - Published on
Format: Hardcover
One of the best fish identification and biology books I've used. The superb images by Raver are much better for identification purposes than photographs, which almost always seem to have some obscured diagnostic features. They are not only accurate, but beautiful works of art. The text on each fish is informative, fun to read and useful to me in learning more about the fish that I pursue.

HASH(0xa0673c30) out of 5 stars Very Detailed Nov. 20 2012
By M. Lindsey - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is very detailed, and quite interesting to read. I would consider it a must have for most anglers, as I've been fishing on the gulf for many years and still catch a fish from time to time that I'm not quite sure what it is. This book will definitely help you know what you've caught and is laid out in an easy to understand format.
