Why We Fish: Airborne, Air-Breathing, Bird-Eating Predators

I caught this arowana while fishing for peacock bass on the Rio Negro, a tributary of the Amazon. It can breath air, as well as water, and often leaps out of the water to capture prey, including birds on low-hanging branches

It's but one of more than 2,500 species of fish (some say the number is closer to 5,000) in the massive Amazon River basin, which covers 2.5 million square miles and 30 percent of South America.

Seeing and learning about such miracles of nature are but two of the many reasons why I fish and why I wrote Why We Fish.

Better Bass Fishing has been selling so well these days that I'm thinking of writing a sequel. I have plenty of material. Just waiting to see if my publisher is interested.

Book was published in 2009, but just now seems to have been discovered. Most information in it is not time-related so it doesn't go out of date. Back then I didn't have high-speed internet or access to social media. And even though publisher was one of the nation's largest, it did nothing to promote the book.

Amazon sometimes temporarily is out of stock. Barnes & Noble also carries it.

The plastic worm (and its many cousins in assorted shapes and sizes) seems to be the only bait that bass do not learn to avoid. Probably that is why it remains the most used artificial bait by anglers of all abilities.

No matter how fast the gear ratio of your reel and how fast your retrieve, you can’t get a bait away from a bass if it wants it. At best, you are reeling at 2 to 3 miles an hour, while a bass can swim at bursts of 12 to 18 miles an hour. So even if you are “burning” a bait, catching it requires just a jog for a bass.
