Fishing Soft Baits in Saltwater
“Soft baits have revolutionized saltwater fishing—and there’s no one better qualified to detail their use than Pete Barrett.” – Al Ristori, Regional Editor, Salt Water Sportsman
The past decade has seen a revolution in how saltwater fishermen pursue fish: using soft-plastic imitations that out-fish traditional lures and baits. Fishing this new style of lure takes knowledge and skill to do it right, which Pete Barrett provides in abundance in FISHING SOFT BAITS IN SALTWATER. Learn the secrets of trolling, jigging, drifting and casting soft baits for all types of fish, plus rigging techniques, adding colors, skirts, eyes and hooks, rigging plastic
bucktails, tube rigs, shrimp, Slug-Go’s, shads, offshore techniques, and much more. Chapters on tackle and tips and tricks for the soft-bait angler round out
this excellent, practical guide.
Pete Barrett’s most recent book is TROLLINGFOR STRIPED BASS AND BLUEFISH.
