Publisher Comments:

The definitive book."--Cruising World

The complete guide to catching and cooking fish from the decks of a cruising boat.

The Cruiser's Handbook of Fishing gives you everything you need to know about catching fish in tropical or middle-latitude seas--from a cruising boat underway or at anchor, from a dinghy, in the surf, and while diving reefs. Step by step this richly detailed guide walks you through:

  • Choosing, using, and maintaining tackle, lures, hooks, leaders, and other rigging essentials
  • Reading currents, wind, wave patterns, tides, water temperature, and atmospheric conditions
  • Modifying vessels with cruise-fishing enhancements such as rod holders, outriggers, cleaning tables, bait wells, and platforms
  • Tying the best knots for cruise fishing
  • Avoiding and treating routine fishing injuries and poisoning--including vital information on ciguatera, venomous stings and punctures, and steering clear of dangerous predators
  • Identifying hundreds of fish species
  • Preparing your catch--including a range of easy and delectable recipes
  • And much more
