Here is a book for both the wannabe angler and the seriously afflicted. If it’s saltwater gamefishing you are after, you will find the secrets that help 10% of participants catch 90% of the fish. From Barracuda to Bluefin Tuna, Yellowtail to Dorado, Wahoo to Marlin, and many other species, you will learn which techniques are common to areas such as Mexico, Australia, Central America, and especially The Pacific Coast of California and Baja California. You will also examine techniques that are uniquely successful in certain local areas of the Eastern Pacific Ocean. The author traces fisheries from the 1950’s to the present, showing how declining abundance can be overcome by trying new areas, refining techniques, and becoming a student of the hunt for these spectacular fighters. Curl up in front of the fireplace to warm you through the winter months, then take the book aboard to try the tested methods outlined in each chapter. Experts will pick up tips or reaffirm their own systems. Conservation issues are addressed, and some unique, simple ways to cook your catch. And a complete list of fishing terms so you can swap stories using the proper jargon.
