Ken Schultz's Field Guide to Saltwater Fish Reviews
Really good book, detailed, well organized, correct picture of species
This is not a field guide at all. There are no fish identification tables, etc. If you don't know the name of the fish you have (and this is why someone would want a field guide, right?) you are lost. This book is just an alphabetical listing of some saltwater fish, that's all. If you are trying to identify a fish you would have to browse page by page, hoping not to miss a picture similar (but not necessarily the same) to your fish. As someone who needed a real field guide, I can not recommend this book to anyone.
good book for the person that wants basic information about fishing. I am a shore saltwater/freshwater fisherwoman and really enjoyed the basic knowledge the book has. I would have liked to have scene REAL pictures of the fish though instead of illustrations
My husband is a lifelong fisherman from Florida and we bought this as a birthday gift for a friend's son who is 8 and loved fishing with my husband before we moved. He loved it! Lots of photos and good info.
This book has great pictures with each fish description, making it easy to determine the fish based on sight. Gives you the perfect amount of basic information about each fish, which is all we really wanted. We love this book and we take it with us when we go fishing in Mexico so we can figure out exactly what we just caught! It's great!
I feel the book was about mostly fish not a lot about what to use and where to catch the fish. Other than that it's a good book.
I own several printed versions of Ken Schultz's books and I would recommend all of them. This book is well written and organized.
