Pros & Cons

Hanging Ten - Surf Fishing

I love the whole Sportsman's Best series. They are well written by people that live what they write about. This particular book is the series focuses on Sight Fishing. Sight fishing to me is more like hunting. This book explains how to find bait, read the surf line and how to fish for specific species and catch them. It can be hard to find a good experienced teacher. that is where this book comes in.

It spends a good amount of effort explaining how to "read" the surf and find fish. It covers live and artificial bait, tackle and when and how to find and catch fish.

There are specific sections on weather, tides, indicators species, looking for specific species, etc. There are also sections for each state and species targeted. Some covered species include, Pompano, Snook, Tarpon, Permit, Redfish and whiting.

There is even a section on how to make the most of fishing with a guide.

Best of all through each page are tips and pointers on how to do the things you want to and need to do to make the sport fun, easy and safe.

Now if that isn't enough they include a DVD that covers and expands on what is in the book. I've been fishing for over 50 years and found lots of information that I didn't know but can apply to my everyday trips.

I rate this book and DVD combo a strong 5 out of 5 !!!

    • The Feelfree Lure series is known to be very stable. Keep in mind, the wider they go, the slower they go.
