Inshore Angler is written for fishermen who travel North Carolina’s section of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway and the state’s rivers, sounds, inlets, and marshes in small boats. Its purpose is to give small boat anglers the knowledge they need to become successful at catching the most popular game fish available along the state’s coast, including black drum, bluefish, bonito, cobia, false albacore, flounder, red drum, Spanish mackerel, spotted sea trout, striped bass, and weakfish.
A variety of fishing techniques is discussed, with tips from some of the state’s top inshore fishing guides as well as from Marsh himself. Some of the chapters also include information about the biology and management of the fish. The chapters are compiled in edited form from some of the most popular magazine articles written by the author.
Not only do the chapters tell small boat anglers when and where to catch fish, they also include photographs, maps, and detailed descriptions of the gear, bait, and lures that guides use as well as the locations of many of these professional anglers’ favorite fishing spots. Once an angler reads the description of these special honey holes, he can apply his new knowledge to his home waters and become as successful as the pros.
“Part narrative, part textbook, and all encompassing. Inshore Angler is a must-read for all anglers wanting to better their coastal Carolina fishing. Keep it in your boat, not on your bookshelf.”
Mike Zlotnicki, Managing Editor, Carolina Adventure Magazine
