Inshore Angler, a comprehensive guide to fishing the waters of coastal North Carolina, gives small boat anglers the knowledge they need to become successful at catching the most popular game fish available along the coast. Published November 2000, Inshore Angler—Coastal Carolina’s Small Boat Fishing Guide will enable fishermen to make the most of each fishing cycle, beginning with the winter and early spring in which speckled trout is abundant in the waters along our shores.
Unlike other fishing guides currently on the market, Inshore Angler features twenty-four color maps to guide readers to professional anglers’ favorite fishing spots. With tips from some of North Carolina’s top inshore fishing guides as well as from the author himself, Inshore Angler is a reference tool to be carried in every angler’s tackle box. The book opens by providing small boat anglers with detailed descriptions of the gear, bait and lures that fishing guides use. Chapters about catching individual species of fish are organized into three-month cycles delineating the time each fish is most plentiful or discussing when a particular technique is most effective.
Author Mike Marsh, who has written hundreds of articles for regional and national outdoor magazines, edited some of his most popular articles from North Carolina’s “hook and bullet” magazines into this essential reference guide.
