I have been reading fishing books, magazines, and articles pretty consistently since December. I was curious to see if anyone else read overwinter to ease the cabin fever? Since December I have read over 10 books, and dozens of magazines most of them pertaining to catfishing, but others include bait, rigs, and tackle books, bass books, spawning pattern books, etc. I just recently started reading Life & Times in Catfish Country by Doug Stange, and i would highly recommend it to catfishermen of all experience levels. He uses stories of Zacker (old trot-liner) and Toad Smith to illustrate and share his fishing knowledge. Other books I recommend include the In-Fisherman Critical Concepts Catfish series books 1-3, there was supposed to be a fourth but I don't think they have released it yet. I also recommend How to Rig and Fish natural baits, written by Byron Dalrymple. This book was published in the early 1980's and contains information that has been lost along the way or just forgotten. Its interesting to see how similar our fishing techniques are almost 30 years later.
