Secrets of Surf Fishing at Night

By know you probably know that the book I been working on for a while is out and in the stores. Some of you might be wondering why I bothered? After all, there is not a word or a sentence in that book that is mine. But that is precisely the reason…

You see, when I got a surfcasting bug, Secrets of Surf Fishing at Night just somehow appeared in my hands. It blew my mind to know that people fish at night, with big lures, on jetties…..And catch big fish. Of course, today I know everything (insert heavy dose of sarcasm) but still, I always regarded this book to be my personal bible.

It really does depend on when you get into the sport. Some of you are worship my first book (or so you say) while other credit Frank D. for getting their panties in a bunch.

I thought, how nice would it be to update the advice in this book and bring it back to the new (and old) readers. So here it is, I hope that all the work in getting this published pays off…, not in $, we only printed a short run so chances of making anything are slim to none, I hope some of you get out of it what I did. That’s all I ever wanted…

There is  soldier out there reading this and there are thousands just like him. They are putting their lives on the line for your son and my daughter, my son and your wife, my mother and your father.

Some of them might be surfcasters. I know they are. I met Kevin Robinshaw when I refunded his $ after he bought my book on Amazon from Iraq last year. I said no way I could ever take solder money while he is abroad , protecting my way of life.

And Mr. Jason Moritz tried to sneak one by me last night by ordering Secrets of Surf Fishing at Night yesterday and then furnishing an APO address. Yeah, he is still getting the book, but his wallet is whole again. ,Mr. Moritz from USCG PATFORSWA UNIT 3950 you get back to us safe, you hear ?

What does this has to do with this book? Nothing

But on the end of the day, we’ll be judged on what we have left to our kids and to the next generation of surfcasters. I know this book would have never seen a light of a day if I didn’t approach Doc and offered to do help him make this possible. I hope some of you enjoy it as much as I have over the years. It’s my contribution to the sport we so dearly move

    I don’t really know what to say. Thank you very much for your generous gift, you did not have to do that. Your books have taught me I look and although you may not have written this one I appreciate the time you have put in to make both this website and book a reality. Thanks again and looking forward to the days when I can wet a line again.

    Z you truly are a gentleman .. while I was in Iraq I missed fishing so much I ended up ordering so.e books off Amazon. I had no issues for the most part but than I got a canceled order notice from amazon and I wasn’t sure what to think , shortly after I was contacted by Mr.Z and he sent my book out for free of charge! It took me a long time to read that book because the amount of missions I was doing but I will tell you this that act if kindness and generosity towards me gave ne alot of hope and at the time and where I was hope is all I had . That certainly was not thelast thing Zeno has done to help me , for those not familiar, I was featured in the very first Surf Casters Journal , to be part of this publication meant so much to me . I was given by Surf Casters Journal , Zeno , And the great folks at Lamiglas a sweet rod and also received two big water custom lures after that article hit the web .
    I still am active duty , stationed at Ft.Benning till next year. It has not been easy for me since I’ve been back and I am laying in the hospital right now awaiting my fourth surgery to fix my nose LOL from when I got hurt overseas . But anyways this blog and this online magazine mean a lot to me and others and my hats of to you Z , there are few people like yourself these days and I hope when I get out the end of next summer that maybe, just maybe i d have the honor of throwing a plug next to you on the beach some time ….

    Hey Zeno,
    I have to say I could not read this post without getting choked up. On this day Thanksgiving I am also so grateful for the men and women who serve this country, who make it possible for us all to practice democracy the way we each see fit.
    Thank you again to you and all the ‘fellas’ at SJ who put this publication together. It’s fantastic.
