I do not live where I can pursue striped bass, bluefish or fluke which are the principle species covered in this book, so, while I found it very helpful overall I am still left with some specific questions related to the fish which I primarily fish for (trevally, snappers and groupers). I came to understand through this book that bucktailing is mainly about controlling a few variables in order to keep your lure in the strikezone for the species you are pursuing. I was expecting bucktailing to be more about jigging the lure and less about swimming the lure so that was a bit of a revelation for me. I am not yet sure how well my local species respond to swimming the lure but I know a great deal more about what it takes to keep the bucktail in the strike zone than I knew previously.
To sum it up, this is an excellent resource and is almost certainly a five star book if you live in the Northeastern United States and can try these tactics as written. For everyone else fishing bucktails in saltwater it is a very solid book which can help to introduce you to the subtleties and possibilities of these classic lures.
I look forward to more books by Mr. Skinner, hopefully one about fishing for southern species with these great lures.
