The Cruiser's Handbook of Fishing Reviews
I found this to be a comprehensive, organized, thoughtful, well-written introduction to saltwater fishing. The text alternates between an instructional and a conversational style, with a mixture of solid, stepwise information -- and entertaining stories to demonstrate some of the key points. The black and white photos are informative and add to the text. The book covers a broad range of techniques and species, along with safety information, and practical advice on gear. The book is written from a cruising perspective but would be valuable to anyone engaging in marine fishing.
I've only fished a few times so I really needed a basic book to help me get started. This is that book. But if you are an experienced fisher, don't let the simplicity scare you. It is of great help for experienced fishers too.
More than I'll probably ever need to know about fishing while cruising. Good information on gear needed, how to use it and where to find what fish. I think this knowledge is going to come in very handy in a few months when I begin my cruising life of living aboard and sailing where the wind blows. Now that I've read it, I can't imagine not having this book on the boat. Easy to understand and dumbed down enough for someone like me who's never fished salt water to gain an idea as to how it's done.
This book is GREAT. I love fishing, and I love sailing. This book is probably the best reference I have ever seen on how to mate the two together. Everything from basic fishing for fun... to survival fishing in case of disaster. There are sections on gear, tactics, safety, cooking, species recognition, diving both day and night, and LOTS of drawings and photos. Bannerot not only earned his money, but he did the sailing world a great service when he wrote this book.
This has way more about aggressive fishing than I will ever need, but who knows? I love fish, both as fellow travelers on the planet and as tasty meals. I have a hard time reading this book though because the author takes such obvious delight in catching and eating these beautiful animals.
Tells you everything you need to know lol, and more. It will be read and come with me on my boat one day :)
I purchased this book hoping to troll for a fish while sailing, thinking the book would give me information on what lures to use and how to rig the line, but it is more than that. It covers almost every mode of fishing available to a cruising boat, plus the equipment and techniques to use. I also learned a great deal from the chapters on processing the catch and how to avoid poisonous fish. The book works well as a reference too since specific facts are easy to locate when details on a specific topic are needed.
Fantastic information. I've been casually saltwater fishing for years but learned so much more from this book in a few hours. Great information covering a wide variety of topics. Buy it!
