Sport Fish of the Gulf Book by Vic Dunaway
A Must Have Book
I simply love this book. I always bring it with me when fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Sometimes when I am fishing, I catch a fish that I am not familar with. This book has detailed passages and pictures of nearly every fish that can be caught in the gulf. This book is also helpful in telling you the food value of each fish and the world records. I highly reccomend this book.

Great reference book
Get this book if you fish in Florida. Plain and simple. Overview and detailed picture of virtually every fish that inhabits the Gulf and surrounding waters. Not only is it a great identifier of fish, it gives helpful information on how to catch them too. It does, however, list certain undesireable fishes as 'good' to eat but I suppose that is user preference.
Great overall book, a must have for Gulf fisherman

As one who gets about one chance a year to fish salt water it can be difficult to remember the various species of fish. I found this book helpful with good illustrations and the food value guide doesn't hurt either! The book also has some helpful hints on tackle and likely habitat. I consider it money well spent.

I have really enjoyed this book. It has all the different names each fish gets and the index in the back is really helpful. Great pictures help ID fish and I carry it on all my trips to the gulf. Great gift for someone who is getting started saltwater fishing.
