There's the thrill of wrestling a fifty-pound yellowfin or hefty wahoo up from the depths and onto the deck of your boat. Then comes the mouthwatering aroma of your fish, slow-cooking on an open grill, followed by the indescribable pleasure of eating it. And of course, there's the sense of pride and fellowship you feel when you share your abundant catch -- and your fish stories -- with other seafarers and friends. Experiences such as these are the stuff of many a cruiser's dreams -- dreams that far too often go unfulfilled. That's because fishing from a cruising boat is unlike any other type of fishing. It requires special preparation and a unique set of skills, at best acquired piecemeal, by word of mouth, or through frustrating trial and error. Until now.
The Cruiser's Handbook of Fishing is the first-ever complete guide to finding, catching, processing, and cooking fish from the decks of a cruising boat. Its authors, Scott and Wendy Bannerot, have successfully cruise-fished tropical and temperate seas for more than two decades. Now, for the first time, they share the fruits of their experiences, along with what they've gleaned from their exhaustive research of the professional and scientific literature on the subject. With the help of dozens of detailed line illustrations, photographs, and fascinating and instructive real-life vignettes, they impart everything they know about catching fish at various latitudes from a cruising boat underway or at anchor, from a dinghy, in the surf, and while diving reefs.
