A technical examination of what goes into the development, location, management, methods, conditions, mind and even luck as they play into the mix of contemporary striper fishing issues. This is an anecdotal accumulation of fascinating experiences that could only come from a fertile mind spawned from half a century of striper fishing. Moreover, it is historical, humorous, sensitive and ever striperphobic, while it predicts monster linesides the likes of which few living memories have ever experienced. The 52 pictures -- mostly bigger bass than any we've ever seen- will have most breathing heavy while Daignault's cult following will express no surprise. Jerry Gibbs, Fishing Editor of Outdoor Life, calls The Trophy Striper "the single best strategy for dealing with the new wave of stripers by a master who lived through the old glory days of monsters."
