Overview

In this hands-on, how-to guide to fishing North Carolina's Outer Banks, expert fisherman Stan Ulanski combines his enthusiasm, his experience, and his scientific expertise to show anglers how to catch more fish.

Focusing on the essential but often misunderstood links between recreational fishing and the biology, geography, and natural history of the region, Fishing North Carolina's Outer Banks fosters an understanding of the aquatic environment of one of the nation's prime fishing destinations. Ulanski reveals the best approaches to the six main Outer Banks angling scenarios: surf, pier, sound, offshore, inshore, and reef, ledge, and shipwreck fishing. The book features illustrated fish profiles—each loaded with essential information, including identification, food value, and habitat pointers—and species-specific fishing tips for thirty-five of the Outer Banks' most common game fish. And, once you've made your catch, Ulanski provides important storing, cleaning, and cooking advice—including six of his favorite fresh fish recipes. This is a trusty tackle box tool for planning fishing trips to the Outer Banks and for understanding the underwater setting of the fish you're out to catch.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book seamlessly blends the technical aspects of fishing with the natural history of that famous stretch of sand less than a half-day's drive from Richmond. The result is a page turner for both curious angler and Outer Banks lover who doesn't necessarily go there to fish. . . . there's something for anyone who loves the Outer Banks in this book."—Richmond Times-Dispatch
