Just a quick note guys.

I have a book coming out in April 2013.

Bass Buff-A Striper Fishing Obsession Guide

It's available at Home Page
Check out the site if you have any interest in becoming a better striper fisherman. Chapter 2 has to do with my quest to build my current boat, a 35' T-Jason.

I checked off all boxes for checking to see if I have a story pah obsession. I be buying the book as you seem very in tune to fishing. Don't you love when the top of your thumb is skinless from unhooking stripers and then admire it Monday morning.

Not really admiring the thumb, it freaking hurts after a while. I love it when you try to release a bass, holding it by the mouth with your thumb in the mouth, and the bass clamps down as you are dropping it in the water. You see stars after that one. That's why I now put a glove on when handling a lot of stripers.

see stars ? from a striper ? I don't know about that, but a tuna tail in the nuts, that does put the lights out.

Books Shipping 4/24

Just got word the books will ship on 4/24/13. I had to make some changes after seeing the first proof becasue of a few typos, and some of the photos needed adjustments. I'm very happy with how it came out. If you are striped bass angler, and want to learn some inside knowledge to push you to the "next level" this book will do the job. Covers many different techniques that can be used from a variety of ports.

November Rain-Did some work this week. Boat goes in, and I will do some gel coating. May is a very light month for me unfortunately. Have a good season.

Captchuck-The book contains clam chumming, trolling, bucktailing, jigging, and night fishing all of which are right up your alley. Hope you enjoy. I'd like to hear a review when you are done. Expect it the last week in June.

New Book Starts Shipping 4/26/13

Bass Buff-A Striper Fishing Obsession Guide starts shipping April 26. 2013

Here is one quick synopses of whats in the book:

Captain Tom Mikoleski of Grand Slam Charters has written a striped bass book unlike any other I’ve read. It is a no-nonsense honest look at boat fishing techniques used to catch striped bass. Fortunately for us, it’s organized in such a way that the reader can find and absorb each technique and then easily cross reference the technique to the “gear†chapters, thus understanding at a glance why each tackle set up is best for a given approach.
Tom is a patient and thorough captain, and whether the quarry is striped bass, fluke, or bottom fish he works very hard to provide fun and productive trips for his customers. He applied that same ethic to this book. Functioning as the editor of the project I was impressed by how eagerly and openly he embraced suggestions. With each editing and rewriting cycle, he applied himself with skill and determination to get the book to a high level of both content and readability.
Tom is an extremely skilled angler who appreciates that he wasn’t born with a rod and reel in his hand, and that his journey from beginner to pro was an exciting and prolonged learning curve. As he wrangles with the nitty-gritty of explaining gear and technique in this book, it is clear that he understands the needs of an angler who may have never used a given approach or type of gear. His energy and excitement about fishing for striped bass; the most storied species of inshore fish along the east coast, his respect for the fish bubbles clearly through the writing. We are treated in the early chapters of the book to the framework of this journey from novice, to his first trips with Captain Bob Rocchetta many years ago, to venturing out on his own as a captain. These chapters that explore his personal pilgrimage to becoming a charter boat captain are very compelling reading that I believe every angler can enjoy and identify with.
The book is punctuated with wonderful photographs too, that Tom and his brother Pete have accumulated over the years, and they add tremendous interest to the book.
It’s been a privilege to be part of this multi-year project, and I know anglers will not only enjoy reading it, but also learn a lot of practical information that can be directly applied to their own fishing.
If you’re a striped bass fisherman, you owe it to yourself to explore Captain Tom’s approach to the sport and the specific skills he uses to catch lots of stripers for his charters as he introduces a host of anglers to the sportsmanship of angling for striped bass.
