Bass, especially largemouth bass, are easily the single most popular freshwater gamefish in the United States. Knowing Bass is a book about the science of bass fishing, with particular
emphasis on the bass itself: What bass can sense, how they use their senses to feed, how they relate to fishing lures, and ultimately, how they interact with anglers. Understanding why bass do what they do will greatly improve anyone's chances of being a better and more successful
angler, no matter the angler's present skill level.

Topics covered include bass biology; life history; the bass' organs of vision, hearing, smell,
and taste, including the smells and flavors bass like--and don't like; how smell and taste control feeding behavior; the best kinds of lures to trigger the attack response in certain situations; and even minimizing stress on caught bass that are to be released.

A distinguished scientist who knows how, when, and why bass pursue their prey, Dr. Jones
offers a wealth of valuable information on pursuing this popular gamefish to anglers of all
skill levels.
