    IMG_0434.JPG My wife bought this for me last year for my birthday, I thought it was a very informative book on our sport. If anyone wants to borrow it and read it I'll bring it to the next shore pounders event. I just need it back before June because I'm moving. Adam

    I'm interested in reading it. I could give it back to you at another shore pounders before you move.

    Cheers.

    I'll put it in my car so I don't forget, if you see a champagne colored vw Jetta with a Sdfish sticker on it that's me.

    Best book ever. That's what made me fish the way I do now.

    I might just pay it forward, leave it with the shore pounders and everyone can just pass it around. As long as everyone that reads it signs their screen name and a picture is posted from time to time. I'll continue to be a member even though I'll be 2500 miles away. I'm trading spotties for large mouth, deer and turkey hunting.

    I wish Mike Gardner was still active out there. Best phone call I've ever had was with him, just over an hour long.

    He's a good guy. I was working a boat show across from the saltwater tank and got to watch his seminar a few times. It was all about the fish have no hands and the importance of bite detection on the sink. He also expressed the difference on how and when to work a swim Bait vs a curlytail. Having to hear it over and over again brainwashed me into becoming a better bay fisherman.

    Thanks, the book sounds great. I'll go to Barnes and Noble to see if I can still buy it. I'll go tomorrow and post what I find out.

    A radio interview with Mike to share with you. I feel like this is probably a condensed summary of his book in audio for those with reading/eye impairment or a lack of time.

    Doubt that Barnes & Noble would have it. I do remember seeing them at Turners.
