Great Way to Fight Off Cabin Fever
Got bored over the winter so I decided to get this book to learn some more about fishing bucktails from the master himself. It's a great read for anyone who doesn't have that much confidence in fishing bucktails. I always tie on a buck at least once during a trip, but don't give it the attention it deserves. Mostly due to my lack of confidence with the lure. After reading this book, I'm definitely going to be putting in more time with them this year.

Essential book for anyone fishing the surf
After seeing all his videos i decided to pick up the book and give it a read. As a fisherman who was looking to "step my game up" this book taught me the advanced techniques i was missing and has resulted in me catching a lot more than in the past. Great read and supported on youtube with many of John Skinners videos. Must read for any northeast surf angler

A must read for the New England Surfcaster
Excellent writing on a critical skill to build as a surf caster fishing the northeast for stripers and other species. John has published many youtube video's as companions to his writing and they are invaluable. Many times words cannot describe conditions adequately and these videos fill the void. Plus everyone love's seeing a huge striper hauled in. Looking forward to his next book...
