I don't think so, and if there was such a book I would be about 3" thick LoL. I have fished from NC to TX and the same fish has multiple names even in the same place much less when change locales.

Menhaden, Pogies and Bunker for example and then those that confuse them with Leatherjackets , Alewives (somtimes known as LY's)

You'll figure it out and if you make a mistake just say --"Well that's what they call them where I come from!"

later

Agreed. The more you get out there and talk to people the more you will catch on. One of my friends calls redfishes "earnest". Dont know where he got that name but thats a first ive heard if it.

Yes, the book "Sport Fish of the gulf of mexico" that everybody is talking about lists a few of the more common names for each species. Really helped clear up some things for me.

There's an app for that...

On the iphone go to the app store and look for "florida fishing regulations". Free app from FWC with current regs and a fish ID section.

This is what I've been using. My copy is the 2nd edition and has held up very well. Price several years ago was $14.99. Can't go by the regulations listed...but neither can you go by the ones listed in the biannual FWC publication Florida Saltwater Recreational Fishing Regulations.

All pages are laminated and spiral bound and fit easily in your fishing box. My book (2nd edition) consists of 34 pages (17 pages printed front and back plus front and back covers). My copy does not contain bait fish info which the newest edition does.

It lists fish by families, grouper, mackarel, snapper, etc.

I purchased mine at a local dive shop.

Here's a sample page from my actual book. Click photo for larger view. The pages are actually white but show up as discolored. This is due to scanner cover being left open and pages being laminated.

Fish Identification Chart  ?-img_0001-large-jpg





Info from the website:
  • Has beautiful large full color illustrations of saltwater fish
  • Has the current Florida fishing regulations of each fish
  • Food values for each fish
  • Bait fish
  • Is laminated & won’t fall apart when they get wet
  • Has the state records for each fish
  • Is 5 x 7 inches, just the right size for to fit in a tackle box!
  • Is spiral bound for quick easy access to all pages
  • List the Spanish names of all fish
