The Complete Book of Saltwater Fishing
Revised and Updated Edition
“Milt Rosko is an icon in the world of saltwater fishing, considered by many to be the modern-day father of saltwater fishing. The Complete Book of Saltwater Fishing is the culmination of a lifetime of fishing experiences that span every aspect of the game, from the very basic in hooks, knots and terminal gear to more sophisticated disciplines such as kite fishing, spreader bars and rigging live baits. In the end, it is a whirlwind tour through a lifetime of fishing, and a sharing of all he has learned. The Complete Book of Saltwater Fishing is destined to become a classic.”
–Fred Golofaro –
Senior Editor, The Fisherman Magazine
“Milt Rosko is a national treasure, and can justifiably brag just a bit that he’s caught most every inshore, coastal and offshore gamefi that swims. Equally adept at fishing from the beach and jetties, at the rail of party boats, as skipper of his own boat, from flats skiffs and from bridges and piers, Milt enjoys sharing his experiences. This latest update of his classic The Complete Book of Saltwater Fishing is a unique opportunity to fish alongside a legendary angler. This is an exceptional book–must-reading for every saltwater angler. “
–Pete Barrett, Author of Fishing Soft Baits in Saltwater and Trolling for Striped Bass and Bluefish
Here in a single volume is everything the saltwater angler needs to know, from a long-time saltwater authority.
Saltwater fishing can be as varied as fishing offshore for big-game billfish with heavy rod and reel, to wading shallow bays with light tackle or the fly rod. THE COMPLETE BOOK OF SALTWATER FISHING covers it all, whether fishing from boats, from shore, from jetties and bridges and more.
Rosko covers the tackle you’ll need and how to use it, what baits and lures to select for different species, the fifty most sought-after saltwater gamefish, and much more, including recipes for preparing the catch, notes on introducing kids to the world of saltwater fishing, and thoughts on important conservation issues that affect everyone who fishes the salt. This edition is revised and updated from the original 2001 publication, with current trends in tackle, technique, and conservation.
Every angler, beginner to advanced, and on every coast, will benefit from Milt Rosko’s comprehensive advice in THE COMPLETE BOOK OF SALTWATER FISHING.
Milt Rosko has written hundreds of articles for such publications as Salt Water Sportsman, The Fisherman, Field & Stream, Sports Afield, Outdoor Life, and others, and is the author of Fishing the Big Four, The Striped Bass Book, and other books. He lives in Watchung, New Jersey.
