The Complete Book of Striped Bass Fishing: A Thorough Guide to the Baits, Lures, Flies, Tackle, and Techniques for America's Favorite Saltwater Game Fish by Nick Karas

Striped bass - in fresh and salt water - are one of the world's greatest gamefish, and The Complete Book of Striped Bass Fishing is the fullest, most authoritative, most helpful book ever written on the species. Nick Karas, one of the world's great experts on the striped bass, offers proven techniques for more successful fishing. He details fishing from the surf; from boats; from bank, pier, jetty, and bridge - with all kinds of tackle and methods. And he takes an especially careful look at the growing popularity of fly rodding for stripers, fishing at night, and even how to catch striped bass in fresh water. An entire section of the book is devoted to tackle - where he takes a thorough look at the best rods, reels, lines, hooks, live and natural baits, artificial lures, accessory equipment of all kinds, bass boats, and the most innovative and practical beach vehicles.

The Complete Book of Striped Bass Fishing offers a comprehensive look at every aspect of the striped bass, making it a book that no one who fishes for this great gamefish will want to be without, and the essential book for all striped-bass enthusiasts.
