The Complete Book of Striped Bass Fishing

Striped bass - in fresh and salt water - are one of the world's greatest gamefish, and The Complete Book of Striped Bass Fishing is the fullest, most authoritative, most helpful book ever written on the species. Nick Karas, one of the world's great experts on the striped bass, offers proven techniques for more successful fishing. He details fishing from the surf; from boats; from bank, pier, jetty, and bridge - with all kinds of tackle and methods. And he takes an especially careful look at the growing popularity of fly rodding for stripers, fishing at night, and even how to catch striped bass in fresh water. An entire section of the book is devoted to tackle - where he takes a thorough look at the best rods, reels, lines, hooks, live and natural baits, artificial lures, accessory equipment of all kinds, bass boats, and the most innovative and practical beach vehicles. The Complete Book of Striped Bass Fishing offers a comprehensive look at every aspect of the striped bass, making it a book that no one who fishes for this great gamefish will want to be without, and the essential book for all striped-bass enthusiasts. (6 X 9, 384 pages, b&w photos, maps, illustrations, diagrams, charts)

Away for the Weekend: Southeast: Revised and Updated Edition (Away for the Weekend(R))

This guidebook, which treats Alabama, Georgia, North and South Carolina, and Tennessee, differs from most others in that it divides its tourist attractions by seasons of the year. Sightseeing and special events like riverboat cruises and Civil War sites are emphasized. A brief history, a list of lodgings and restaurants, and directions are provided for each destination. As in Berman's other Away for the Weekend guidebooks (covering Northern California, New England, New York, and the Mid-Atlantic), all the attractions have been personally visited by the author or recommended to her by others. While the book is not comprehensive, it tantalizes the reader with brief descriptions and provides enough choices and information to afford most travelers an enjoyable weekend. For regional travel collections.
