Just got the book today and read it cover to cover. It definitely tackles some long held beliefs.

I found the section regarding silence in the boat particularly beneficial because I can be a little loud at times.

I think it does a good job relating information on reservoirs. I think that anglers who primarily fish river systems might need to take the differences in water bodies into account.

Josh there are a couple of typos... One on page 27 (angles instead of anglers) and 2 more in the table on page 110 (crankbiat)

It's definitely worth ordering. Josh keeps things to a point. Excellent read.

2/3 of the way through; Well written, enjoyable to read, and to the point/no fluff. The first third of the book does an excellent job summarizing, analyzing, and extrapolating from prior studies. The data analysis in the last 2/3 is the new ground. Easy to read data tables, charts, and graphs. The book covers strategies for catching numbers and size. The book includes so much information in a well written, concise manner; I can't think of a better book as a primer on bass fishing. It will certainly influence how and when I fish.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys. As a first time author it is nerve wracking not knowing if people will like your work. It's a huge weight off my shoulders to hear folks find it interesting! I'll get the minor typos fixed soon. So far the whole process has far exceeded my expectations. It's been a lot of fun. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them. Thanks again.

Josh

The easiest place is on Amazon. Just search "High Percentage Fishing". If you are a prime member you can get free shipping. I should also have a kindle version up before the end of the week.

I have ordered in the hopes that this is the Moneyball of fishing.

Josh, have you considered who you want to play you in the movie?
