Bass Forever...The Book


Bigmouth Forever is an all-time classic and a must have for all bass fishermen.  I bought the 35th Anniversary Edition earlier this year and enjoyed every single 60 minutes of it.  It's an eye-opening experience about the lives of our beloved largemouth bass.  Yesterday, I received a letter in the mail about the new book that focuses on the movie, the making of the movie and many more aspects of the life of Glen Lau.  I have definitely added this to my list of must haves for the upcoming year.  I found the info about the book and where it can be purchased.

Bass Forever - Limited Edition

By: Glen Lau with Ken Duke

Glen Lau is a name that needs no introduction to bass anglers. An angler of note, fishing guide, maker of such iconic films as Bigmouth and Bigmouth Forever, and the producer of notable television shows as The Fisherman, Sports Afield, and The Outdoorsman, Glen has become one of the most knowledgeable bass anglers in the world.

With the help of his friend Ken Duke--executive editor of Bassmaster publications--and with an introduction by Homer Circle, here for the first time ever, he tells the story of his life and the story of how big bass live, feed, and procreate. Glen gives freely from his 50+ years of experience with only the largest bass, and how big bass are affected by the weather and moon, the seasons, water temperature, and numerous other factors. He delves into detail on the kind of lures that are effective for the biggest bass, how to fish them properly, and how a bass' senses work and how it effects lure presentation.

But there is so much more. You learn how he tried (and almost succeeded) in raising a world-record bass and what it taught him about how huge bass act and how selective breeding can build stronger and heavier fish. You'll discover Glen's tips on the importance of casting, boat position, effective anchoring, learning from your mistakes, and persistence. Glen argues that good anglers are made, not born, and explains how to find big bass, how to fish for them, and ultimately how to be a successful big bass angler.

Along the way, you'll learn many fascinating things about Glen's life. About how he taught himself to be an underwater camera man and then became so proficient his photos graced the covers of hundreds of magazines. You'll be amazed at how he caught a potential world-record bass through his underwater camera lens in California. You'll read his anecdotes about many of the largest bass caught during his lifetime, and his successful foray into the tackle business with the patented Lau Lure. You'll discover the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of his films Bigmouth, one of the most decorated movies in outdoor history, and Bigmouth Forever, a movie that Ray Scott, founder of B.A.S.S., has called “the best film ever made about anything.” And you'll learn of his four-decade friendship with the most iconic angler of the second half of the twentieth century, the legendary Homer Circle.

The book includes over 80 stunning full color underwater photos from Glen's extensive photo library, showing big bass at all stages of development, at rest, mating, and feeding.

Bass Forever is not just a catchy title, it is a fitting description of one man and his life-long passion for big bass.
