Secrets of the Striper Pros Volume 1 & 2 is a compilation of strategies and tactics used by more than 16 of the most respected and accomplished captains, surf fishermen, authors and tournament winning anglers. I probe the underwater world of bass to show how they feed, where they feed and how you can target trophy fish. The single-sided, double-layered DVD contains the entire content from an early video (digitally re-mastered) produced in 1998 plus an additional 2 DVDs worth of new content covering a host of contemporary tips and techniques...it's like getting three DVDs for the price of one -three hours of content! The fishing grounds range from Massachusetts to New York and the cast of talent is a proverbial who's who in the world of striper fishing: Capt. Bob Rocchetta, Capt. Nick Karas, Capt. Buddy Vanderhoop, Capt. Brian Vanderhoop, Captain Capt. Skip Stritzinger, Chuck Masso, Capt. Blaine Anderson, Capt. Doug Jowett, Lou Tabory, Capt. Jim White, Capt. Duane Lynch, Capt. Ken Zwirko, Capt. Ryan Sansoucy, Lefty Kreh, Dan Blanton and Steve McKenna. The content of this DVD is the culmination of over 12 years of filming and diving effort. No matter how you fish, whether it's from shore or a boat, whether you fish with spinning, fly or conventional tackle this DVD will help you catch more and larger fish. Just watching Lefty Kreh tying his legendary deceiver fly or watching a 40 pound striper being landed in the surf at night is worth the $29.95 price of the DVD. As always, this DVD comes with the guarantee that the only place you'll see more stripers is in your dreams.
Very entertaining. If you like striper fishing than you should own this.

Pros: Underwater footage showing behavior, environment, experts showing techniques Cons: Music is a bit corny in some segments. Recommended: Yes
There is a lot of information in this video. I have watched it several times already and pick up something else each time I watch. Very informative.

Secrets of the Striper Pros
While this title was a lot of fun to watch, it wasn't as educational as I thought it might be. I was hoping to see a LOT more underwater footage, since the author is a diver and the video was 18 years in the making. I was hoping to see more on where the stripers hang out underwater & lot's of video showing strikes on the bait etc.Still, it was fun to watch and will get you stoked to do some fishin', just don't expect to learn a whole lot. Here's a secret for free.... if you are where the fish are, you'll probably do well regardless of how you fish. This video shows people fishing in every way possible, at all times, and they all catch fish.

Cons: Expensive Recommended: No
Mildly interesting. Lots of film showing the water, people catching fish & scenary but not much on actual "secrets from the pros".

Cure For Cabin Fever
I don't get to the coast as often as I'd like. Watching this DVD is the next best thing to being there. Watching the experts impart their wisdom will probably save me much time and money on the road to fishing success. I can't wait to try some of their tricks. As much as anything, this footage will provide a wonderful escape during the depths of winter.
