    Nitestrikes, thanks for posting that about Jack Yee...met him once a few years ago at Paulies in Montauk....

    ** I have to nominate John Skinner for this thread....finally got a chance to meet him today at the Berkeley show.




    John Skinner - writer, teacher, and hardcore surf and kayak fisherman....


    He has....
    written 2 outstanding Saltwater books:
    1. Season on the Edge
    2. Fishing the Bucktail

    3. Numerous saltwater articles and a regular saltwater blog....
    4. Started a company that has an online fishing log database.....www.FishersLog.com


    He is a tremendous fisherman, prolific writer, and all-around nice guy.
    Being a good fisherman is one thing.
    Translating that so people can learn from you, is taking it to another level. John Skinner has done that time and time again......

    Here is just one of the exciting pages from his book Season on the Edge...
    It talks about how he first got started, the fun in catching and battling his first bluefish and his love of fishing as a learning process.
    Dating from those first fish to a Season travelling and fishing the legendary places all Surfcasters dream of...a must-read for any angler. Whether you are a beginner or have experience, I believe everyone can get something out of his books.


    Today I finally got a chance to meet him in person. I feel he is just as portrayed in his videos. Nice demeanor, knowledgable, and very humble.

    If you have a chance find a way to read either of his books....you will be a better fisherman because of it.....

    Nice to meet ya, John...

    ^^^ Good choice. John is a prince among men. Not one shred of ego either.
