Whether you fish for stripers with a fly, plug, or bait, this comprehensive resource for catching trophy fish in shallow water will become an indispensable guide. Captain Jim White shares his wisdom from over forty years of chasing and fishing for striped bass with the best in the business, including Shaw Grigsby, Lefty Kreh, Dan Blanton, Nick Curcione, and Bob Popovics. This book includes chapters on rigging and presentation, the best lures and flies, fishing the flates and estuaries, finding and targeting large fish, and boat electronics written by a master angler who has, so far in his career, helped anglers to 'land one fish of 60 pounds; 14 fish between 50 and 58 pounds; 216 fish between 40 and 49 pounds; and, 336 fish between 30 and 39 pounds'. If you are looking to catch a fish of a lifetime - whether you target stripers in the Northeast or on the West Coast, or fish stillwaters across the USA for hybrids - this book is essential reading.
