This book was written to help anglers become more successful when fishing the inshore
salt waters of the Eastern United States. I grew up in Maryland, fishing the Chesapeake
Bay and it’s tributaries. I moved to Sarasota, Florida and started guiding in 1991.
Most of the information in this book should be applicable to the majority of coastal anglers on
the coasts of both the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. It is 23,000 words in length.
The first half covers tackle and techniques, the second half goes into each species in detail.
