The Complete Book of the Striped Bass Author:Nicholas Karas Wherever the magnificent striper ranges--and that means up and down both coasts and as much as 400 miles inland in some freshwater rivers--spellbound anglers are on the hunt, whether flailing with big surf sticks, jigging from small boats in bays and creeks, or trolling and drifting inshore from party boats and 'fishing machines." ... more » When the striped bass are in, they are the only fish in the sea to millions of sportsmen.
Like other game fish, the striper rewards even the beginning fisherman with an excuse to share its watery world and with an occasional success, but it reserves the finest pleasures for the true scholar-sportsman who studies the fish and its environment and masters the tackle and techniques used to take it. THE COMPLETE BOOK OF THE STRIPED BASS makes this kind of study possible for the general reader and the recreational angler.
It is all here--a complete description of the fish, its environment, its behavior, and its probably future; an explanation of all the methods used to take it, and a comprehensive discussion of tackle, accessories, boats and beach vehicles, and even cooking methods.« less
