From the Publisher:

WHAT'S THAT ON MY LINE?

"What's the name of this fish anyway?"

"Is it good to eat?"

Those are two big questions that many thousands of fishermen constantly ask as they encounter the huge variety of fish in Florida's inshore and offshore waters.

Until now, there has been no complete, easy-to-use identification guide. Sport Fish of Florida fills that need. All the fish you're likely to catch are shown on these pages. Well over 200 of them. No more guesswork.

I.D. information, edibility ratings and other important information are provided by none other than Vic Dunaway, founding editor of Florida Sportsman Magazine. A legend, who really is just that, Vic knows his sport fish like no one else.

Sport Fish of Florida also features all original illustrations by Floridian Kevin R. Brant, who carefully produced the images exclusively for this long-awaited book.

At Florida Sportsman, we've talked periodically for 20 years about the need for a really helpful guidebook that would show all the key fish and give the salient facts about them for the typical angler. Lo and behold, here it is!

We trust that you'll find Sport Fish of Florida to be a helpful companion for your angling days in state and neighboring waters, where the fish are both diverse and delectable. --Karl Wickstrom Publisher, Florida Sportsman Magazine

From the Inside Flap:

THE FISHIEST OF AUTHORS

If you had to choose one person who knows his Florida fish and how to catch them better than any other angler of our time, it would have to be Vic Dunaway.

Vic's seen virtually all of them, up close, on the end of his fishing line. Moreover, Vic has sampled the culinary value of seemingly every finny thing that swims.

In this Sport Fish of Florida book, Vic shares with you his half-century of experience, telling you how to I.D. a fish, how to catch it, where it resides and whether it's good to eat. (You may find that you've been discarding some fish that are actually excellent table fare.)

Vic is no snob when it comes to finding good food. We can all benefit from his hard-earned knowledge.

As founding editor of Florida Sportsman Magazine, author of best-selling books, contributor to national magazines, and TV personality, Vic is widely acclaimed as the dean of Florida outdoor writers, an expert who plies quiet streams for bluegill one day and searches the seas for marlin the next.

His work is illustrated with paintings, especially commissioned for this book, by Kevin R. Brant, a fast-rising artist who also has spent many a year on the Florida waters building a firsthand relationship with the characters he paints.

The result is a long-awaited reference book you'll use for all your fishing days.
