You can still purchase it online. I bought a copy and loaned it out...never saw it again frown

Good read, but goes against what other big bass books say completely.

I loved that book, and wish I still had a copy.


Here's Cliff Notes and what I remember:

big bass feed at night all year long

big bass stage around funnel points

big bass don't move far from suspending to their night time feeding locations

I got it online years ago
I would love to see more studies like his in other lakes, other circumstances.
I like to use scientific evidence as a rule and his book provides it.
I have had much success using principles from his book for large bass, especially when fishing lakes that do get extreme pressure.
You sometimes gotta be sorta nuts to stay in one spot for up to 3 days but if you are patient enough you will get bigguns.
