Overview

The amazing resurgence of the East Coast's premier saltwater game fish has sent hundreds of thousands of anglers in search of their fathers' and grandfathers' favorite quarry: the magnificent striped bass. But the best tools and techniques have changed since the striped bass was nearly wiped out, in the crash of the fishery in the early 1980s, and anyone who has a hope of catching this species must be familiar with its characteristics and habits. In The Ultimate Guide to Striped Bass Fishing, noted angler and fishing author Eric Burnley has compiled everything anyone needs to know to be successful at catching this wonderful fish. Burnley begins by explaining the striper's biology and its life cycle, its migratory patterns up and down the seacoast, the baitfish and other foods it prefers, and the underwater structures anglers must learn about to find the big fish, the ones breaking thirty or forty pounds. He then addresses, in exacting detail, every possible way the sport angler can catch stripers, including:* Targeting and casting to structures from shore or boat* Surfcasting methods, tips, and techniques* Bait fishing with shrimp, sandworms, eels, clams, and baitfish from a boat or shore
• Trolling tackle, depths, direction, tide, and time of day* Fly-fishing casts, retrieves, and special techniquesBurnley also tells where and when to fish, gives detailed instruction on appropriate tackle and must-know knots, and instructs on invaluable rigs and the conditions in which they are most successful. With comprehensive, easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, and dozens of clear illustrations, this book is the first place striped-bass anglers should look for advice that will reward them with great catches and great memories..
