World Atlas of Saltwater Fishingby Ken Schultz
The world of saltwater sportfishing is glamorous: chasing hard-fighting, big game fish such as marlin, sailfish, and tuna on the high seas in big, expensive boats. However, it is not all like this - there is an enormous variety of game fish that can be caught in many different ways, from fishing grounds in all the oceans of the world.The World Atlas of Saltwater Fishing is a fascinating and colorful survey of the premier saltwater fishing locations around the globe, concentrating on those most renowned for their outstanding sportfishing action. The locations featured include the east and west coasts of North America, the unparalleled fishing grounds of the Caribbean, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Africa, and Europe.The atlas focuses on the major fishing attractions at each site - marlin, tarpon, bonefish, sharks - but also covers any secondary attractions; species that are gaining in popularity or which are becoming more abundant and therefore offer a wider choice of angling possibilities in a given locale. It also describes seasonal game fish presence and trends, particularly suitable fishing techniques, preferred seasonal fishing times, notable past catches (including world records), and the angling folklore of each place.Superbly illustrated with color photographs and detailed diagrams, the atlas is the "hall of fame" of the finest and most compelling ports for all saltwater fishermen.
