The Fisherman's Ocean: How Marine Science Can Help You Find and Catch More Fish Paperback – October 1, 2000

Ross clearly explains how marine science can help saltwater anglers catch more and bigger fish. The book's first and second parts describe, respectively, oceans and fish. In the final section, Ross, an oceanographer at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, takes the scientific concepts from the first two parts and applies them to fishing for a variety of species along the Atlantic, Pacific, and Gulf Coasts. Throughout, information is provided on new technology and boating and fishing safety. Books about the science of hunting or fishing are often lost on general readers, who won't tolerate the leaden style and dense content. Despite some repetition and the occasional confusing passage, Ross generally succeeds where his peers have failed, thanks to clear, even humorous prose and effective use of photographs and diagrams. This comprehensive yet accessible treatise will be of definite interest to anyone serious about saltwater angling. John Rowen

I'm at a frustrating point in my stage of angling wisdom. I've been fishing recreationally for over 20 years. Although I’ve never caught a trophy fish in any species, I’ve got enough fish to enjoy the sport and want to go back all the time. This summer I’ve been applying the knowledge I’ve attained from this book, and a few videos, and I’m catching less and smaller fish. Perhaps the secret to success is in the end of the book.
The second half is full of information about fish and he ties it all in with the first half. Very good reading for those who are really into saltwater fishing whether it be from the surf, in a tidal creek, or a boat.
