Focusing on structure, weather, and seasons to dictate where the fish will be and when they will be there. Forget learning the bio's for each fish, learn their instinctual patterns and know what all fish like!
Stop wasting valuable time fishing dead water zones! I'll show you how to fish the 10% of water that holds fish, whether it be a back water eddy on the river, a beachfront seawall, a mangrove system, oyster bar, grass flats, etc., you'll always be in the 10% catching fish!
Whether the fish are camping out in the backwater marshes, basking on the beach, ripping up the mangroves, nestled up in a river hole, or anything in between, the details in this book will lead you to the fish under any condition.

Originally designed as a progressive 3 part series fishing book, I got a bit side tracked and tabled the project after the first publication. I picked back up in 2017 with my newest title Florida Inshore Angler - Situational Methodology, and now planing the next update to Florida Fishing.
The color images you see in most books now days were originally designed for this book by Diane Rome Peebles, and first printed in this book. These images are incredibly detailed and represent each species better than the actual fish, for fool proof identification!
This book touches on a wide variety of topics from basic tackle, baits, tips and tactics, to fish ID, fishing spots, first aid, and recipes to name but a few. The update will expand upon topics already present, thus offering a well rounded and detailed fishing reference.
Having a far different format than Florida Inshore Angler, this book will complement FIA nicely and complete a full fishing reference guide series that leaves out nothing in the world of inshore angling. The update will include both series 2 and 3 rolled into one book, rather than the original 3 book series that was planned.
If one were to distill the essence of Florida West Coast fishing in a well written, well organized collection of information, photos and diagrams, the results would be Allen Applegarth's "Florida Fishing."
Fun and easy to read, Applegarth's book can greatly assist any angler -- from novice to expert -- in their pursuit of the many fascinating Florida Suncoast species. Allen Applegarth's "Florida Fishing," is a book that I will always enthusiastically recommended.
