Everett Herald outdoor writer Wayne Kruse writes, "NEW BOOK: I don't review many publications in this column, but there are exceptions. One is certainly the latest edition of John Martinis' Saltwater Fishing Journal, a reasonably-priced (read Christmas gift?) and eminently useable handbook on fishing the local saltwater scene. Martinis is a longtime avid angler and owner of John's Sporting goods in Everett, and his journal reflects his expertise. Everything in it is proven and tested, and designed to be utilized by the average angler. It covers salmon, saltwater steelhead, crab, shrimp, halibut, ling and rockfish.
The slick-cover, spiral-bound, 160-page publication tells you when, where and how to fish all the hot spots in north Puget Sound, the San Juans, and the Strait, including chart references and GPS waypoints. It covers tackle and techniques, includes fish identification, tackle setup diagrams, bait rigging, knots and more.
This fourth edition, by Evergreen Pacific Publishing in Mukilteo, is by far the best-looking and most professional of its long and popular history, with heavy stock, great color and crisp typeface."
