Listed below are books written by men who are great fishermen and whom I personally know. All of the books are interesting, entertaining and informative however there are four that you should own and read. Frank Daignault's Striper Surf and The Trophy Striper are top rate. For both inshore boat and surf fishing, Saltwater Fishing - A Tactical Approach by Capt. Jim Freda, Capt. Gene Quigley and Shell Caris. If you are a relative newcomer to surfcasting I highly recommend Joe Cermele's new book, The Complete Guide to Surfcasting. It covers the complete coastline of the United States.
