Fishing Mississippi
by Tony Kinton
Paperback from University Press of Mississippi
ISBN: 1578064317

Fishing Mississippi pilots the angler to the perfect fishing hole and details the knots, bait, lures, and techniques required to land a lunker.

From its northern boundary to the Gulf of Mexico, Mississippi provides some of the finest angling opportunities found anywhere. A mild climate and abundance of waters make fishing a sport practiced year-round.

Anglers who have focused on one single specimen or those who are new to the pursuit of fishing may be surprised at the variety Mississippi has to offer. More than twenty native fishes fall into the sport-fish category, and these species are thriving. Novices and old pros will find, among the many fish described in Fishing Mississippi, new quarry matched to their abilities.

Fishing Mississippi provides a single source highlighting all the thrills of fishing in the state. The guide tells when, where, and how to fish for a variety of species, and covers the reservoirs, rivers, ponds, and streams thoroughly. Detailed color illustrations of the major sporting fish, twenty maps, driving directions, and phone numbers set the hopeful fisher on the right course.

Anglers will find bluegill, redear sunfish, longear sunfish, green sunfish, warmouth, crappie, smallmouth bass, spotted bass, largemouth bass, striped bass, white bass, hybrid bass, sauger, walleye, blue catfish, channel catfish, and flatheads discussed.

The book also highlights the need for wise use and conservation to help assure viable future fishing for generations to come. Fishing Mississippi will put the angler on the right path for some memory-making experiences.

Tony Kinton's writings and photographs have been published in such periodicals as Outdoor Life, Bowhunter, Southern Outdoors, Mississippi, Mississippi Outdoors, and Mississippi Woods and Waters.

Yankin and Liftin Their Whole Lives: A Mississippi River Commercial Fisherman (Shawnee Books)
Yankin' and Liftin' Their Whole Lives: A Mississippi River Commercial Fisherman (Shawnee Books)
by Mr. Richard Younker
Paperback from Southern Illinois University Press
ISBN: 0809323389
 
Using narrative, monologues, and seventy black-and-white photographs, photojournalist Richard Younker examines the life and culture of what is perhaps the last generation of people to make their living as commercial fishermen on the Mississippi River, Junnie Putman and his family and friends.

Younker delves into and illustrates every aspect of Putman's life: how he works, what he does to relax, how he interacts with family and friends. He shows how Putman fished, divulging some of the secrets of the professional fisherman. Examining this fisherman's life--as well as the lives of his relatives and friends--Younker demonstrates Putman's skill as colorful storyteller with a rich vocabulary. Putman proved forthright when expressing his views about life, river lore, and the changing ecology.

These fishermen (who supplement their incomes by hunting and trapping) have various and vigorous encounters with the law, some confrontational, some clever. They also live dangerous lives, working hard, playing hard. And they are quick to fight. Younker photographs and writes about this side of their lives, too.

In each chapter, Younker narrates an aspect of the life and work of Junnie Putman and his family and friends followed byYounker's own black-and-white photographs that help tell the story. Introducing each photograph is a monologue in which Putman or one of his relatives either recounts the history of the family that settled in Bellevue, Iowa, in 1862 or explains the methods and dangers of a specific job.

Although he spent parts of nine years documenting Junnie Putman and his family, Younker condenses his observations into a single year. He shows, for example, how fishing techniques change with the seasons. Putman uses hoop nets in the spring, trotlines in the summer, trammel nets in the fall, seines in the open water in late fall, and seines under the water in winter.

In Yankin' and Liftin' Their Whole Lives, Younker presents the richness of a vanishing way of life and the intricacies of its labors. He gives Junnie Putman and his friends the opportunity to speak for themselves. And he shows a culture in decline, demonstrating that descent through Putman's failing health, his death, and the townspeople's reminiscences of his life following the funeral.
