About the Author

Capt. Mike Schmidt has been fishing for sharks for more than a quarter of a century. His shark expertise is often called upon by researchers and media. Schmidt's shark photos and videos have been seen by millions. He has placed in the Mako for Dollars, Pacific Coast Yacht Club, Mako My Night and the Mako Madness fishing tournaments, with several notable wins. He has won Mako Madness and Mako My Night tournament, in the most released fish division. His find and catch rate is very high and afforded several wins in that division. Schmidt has also placed in the OLN TV show shark series SHARK HUNTERS. Schmidt served as Tournament Director for the 2003, 2004 and 2005 Mako for Dollars Tournament. Capt. Mike Schmidt has done extensive work with juvenile great white sharks, placing satellite tags in the sharks and tracking them in the wild. Schmidt helped establish the Share the Shark Foundation, an organization dedicated to the distribution of shark meat to charities (including food banks and homeless shelters), allowing shark fishermen an avenue to contribute to their communities. Capt. Mike Schmidt's articles and photos have appeared in magazines and internet publications across the continent. Schmidt produces the acclaimed shark fishing website, www.Sharks.us , which many tout as the world's #1 website for the sport. For Schmidt the sport of shark fishing is about soul searching, the ocean's rejuvenating, positive energy, and becoming closer to God and His creations.

Format: Paperback
When I first looked at this book, I was captivated by the large, colorful photos. I've been a fishing enthusiast since childhood, and have often wondered about big game fishing. I came to the book knowing little to nothing about shark fishing, and walked away feeling like I have a thorough education and could really do this thing. Even if you don't ever plan to hunt sea monsters, if you love fishing there's plenty to learn from this book. It is colorful, attractive, and offers step-by-step guidelines that will be helpful to both novice and experienced anglers. Also makes a great gift or coffee table book; that's where mine is, and is always admired by my guests.

For the price and from the cover I expected some good imagery... not the case

the entire book is black and white with photos that look like xerox copies of someone else's photo prints. If I had not purchased the book as a gift for someone I would have returned it.

Some interesting text... entirely devoted to Makos

This book was a disappointment for the most part. It is geared for Mako shark fishing on the West coast and although I Mako fish the East coast I was hoping to glean pearls of wisdom from the author's years of experience. He tended to ramble in generalities and personal opinions, the multiple rod setups for all the different situations was torture, impractical and prohibitively expensive.Here we use one or two setups for everything, he'd have me buying half a dozen different outfits. As there are few books on shark fishing and even less print material on makos it's worth the $20 from that viewpoint, as a reference in my library, but there is very little practical information that I will transfer to my fishing experience for mako sharks. In all fairness,someone just starting out can learn alot from this book, for someone that's shark fished for 40 years it'll just be an interesting read.
