By John Skinner
Around 18 months ago I decided to write another book. The overwhelmingly positive response to how I did Fishing the Bucktail was a strong motivator. I decided I would use that same style to do a comprehensive brain dump on how I approach striper fishing from the shore. I also set out to acquire and organize video to support the aspects of the book that could be enhanced with video. For example, I’ll write about pencil popper fishing in great detail, but the ability for me to show you what I’m writing about and for you to watch how fish react to the technique is beyond what anyone can accomplish with the written word alone. The book’s title is “Striper Pursuit”. Its companion website,, will presents the videos organized by chapters. QR codes are embedded in the book so that people with smartphones and tablets can scan barcodes to watch videos pertaining to the portions of the book they’re reading. My targeted release date is November 1. is pretty far along, so feel free to check it out. Most of the video is in place, and the rest will be there upon the book’s release. The nice thing about having the website to support the book is that I’ll be able to add to it as I acquire additional relevant video. I’m pretty excited about the whole idea of enhancing the book’s 200+ pages with well-organized and targeted video. Here’s the first public look at the cover! Nice work by Tommy Corrigan!

    Also I could not get a ride to my local meeting and I still feel guilty as hell. Too many family commits. Writing letters though! I am up by Bangor. Anyone want to carpool to a meeting let me know please I will pay gas.

    Just reading over your blog for today and wanted to say “thank you” for the great fix you provide for those of us that can’t get out on the water as much as we would like. Also, for keeping the drum beating about the ASMFC hearings.
    Because of the information you have posted, I realized that I would not be able to make the meeting in Maryland, so I took the info provided in your blog post on contacting the ASMFC and wrote to the head of the ASMFC charged with collecting comments on the proposed options. Thanks for your efforts and for the great posts!

    I can’t wait for the new book I have all his others and have learned so much from them and his videos.. I still can’t wait till he lets out his secret for catching bass in rain puddles…. You know he can..

    John- congrats on the new book, I’m sure its going to be a quick sell out and have to be reprinted. I for sure will have to pick one up.
    On another note , can someone please explain what the difference is from a pre-built custom rod from the rod next to it in the rack. Would that be like buying a suit that needed alterations or hopefully one that fits? YOGI

      meyogi: I’ll give it a shot…

      It could mean that this rod was “SPECIFICALLY” made (Custom Designed) for – someone else – other than you by a rod builder such as Lou’s Custom rods or rh Custom Rods but not by a company (a mass produced model).
