Wow! There is a lot of information in a simple, easy to read format packed into this guide that can help anyone catch flounder. It describes the tackle, tips and techniques that that flounder find hard to resist and includes helpful tips on how to locate these fish. For instance, have you ever caught a flounder in under a minute? Amazingly helpful, get your copy today!
Let me start by saying, I was excited to write this book because it involves the tactics and techniques that I and my friends use to catch flounder. I try to keep the information as simple and practical as possible so anyone can understand and use it when they go fishing. I asked some very knowledgeable captains if they would share what they do to catch these fish consistently and share their tips inside the book with you in no nonsense, practical way.
As a bonus, (because I want you to be successful at catching fish) I added some video links so you can see the techniques I describe in action and learn that they work. For instance, have you ever caught a flounder in under a minute? There is a video link where I show you how I did this using the techniques outlined in this book. I call it “The 1 minute flounder”. In this video clip, (which is the first video clip I ever filmed by myself) I describe what I am doing before I cast out my line. Watch the clip and count the seconds from when the bait hits the water to when I hold the fish and you may be just as amazed as I was when filming the video. And while you are there click the subscribe button and it will inform you when new information is posted. It’s free. Here is a tip, the links work best in the eBook format, you just click on the link and it takes you there, and the eBook format is available on many different reading devices. I have a downloaded copy on my smart phone and it works the way I had envisioned.
Now in this book, I cover the basic tackle and equipment that I like to use because it works very well for the inshore fish that we are after. And yes, I have included a video link that shows you what I look for in the baits and lures that work for me so that you will know what to look for in baits and lures that can work for you. Now manufactures are bringing out new baits and lures all the time, which is part of the reason we spend so much time in the fishing section of our favorite stores… To see what is new and buy what we think will work. This is a section I am considering developing for the Flounder Bytes website so you can keep up on the latest developments in the fishing industry.
You will also find information on the inshore areas including the primary and secondary locations that flounder use at various times of the season to help get you started in the right direction while trying to locate these fish. This book is a fast, easy read and packed with the information, tips and techniques you need to help you get on the fish fast. That is my personal promise to you!

By Kathryn Collett

One of the best-loved books in the Bible holds a mystery.

While working in Corinth, the Apostle Paul penned his letter to the Romans. Paul chose a woman named Phoebe to hand-carry his letter to the church in Rome. In Romans, Chapter 16, Phoebe’s name is at the head of a long list of noble workers Paul praises for their service.

“I commend to you our sister Phoebe, who is a deacon in the church in Cenchrea. Welcome her in the Lord as one who is worthy of honor among God’s people. Help her in whatever she needs, for she has been helpful to many, and especially to me.” [Romans 16:1-2, NLT]

Who is Phoebe? Why did Paul choose this woman to deliver his precious letter? And why would Phoebe volunteer to make a nearly 1000-mile, sometimes harrowing, always dangerous, journey from her home in Cenchrae, Greece to Rome?

In this first book in the Phoebe’s Journeys series, Of Passion And Pride, Phoebe is a teenager living near Corinth, Greece in the small shipping village of Cenchrae, a few miles south of the bustling city of Corinth. When her father dies unexpectedly, Phoebe finds herself at the center of a power struggle. Although she is only sixteen-years-old, headstrong Phoebe is determined to protect her father’s legacy and retain ownership of her family’s lucrative Greek shipping agency, regardless of the roadblocks she encounters.

Evil jealousies, long-held resentments, and the morés of Roman society conspire against her. Even Phoebe’s lifelong friends and family have their doubts and shake her resolve. Phoebe begins to question what she can believe and who she can trust.

Meanwhile, just north of Phoebe’s hometown of Cenchrae, the Apostle Paul is working in Corinth with fellow tentmakers, Priscilla and Aquila. Paul is struggling to make ends meet and fund his next mission. When their paths cross, an unlikely partnership is formed between Paul and Phoebe.

This is a richly imagined backstory of the woman Paul chose to be his emissary and carry and present his letter to the Christian church in Rome. Of Passion And Pride brings texture and nuance to first-century life in the Roman Empire. Corinth is no longer just an ancient city on a musty map. You’ll experience the cosmopolitan excitement and the debauchery of the Agora marketplace. You’ll meet soldiers, servants, and gladiators who all have important roles in Phoebe’s world. You’ll enter the hushed halls of Proconsul Gallio’s villa and hear him debate the Apostle Paul, using techniques taught to him by his father, philosopher Seneca the Great.

Suddenly, life at all levels of society from the mariners to the merchants, from the synagogue leaders to the `Corinthian girls’ is real.

Phoebe’s Journey, Part One, Of Passion And Pride, is sure to capture your imagination and enhance your understanding of the life and culture in New Testament times.

Any woman or man who has ever been a part of a family since birth, or who has ever been in charge of anyone under the age of 18 years, will find themselves in at least one of these essays detailing the hilarious family situations – and their consequences – we all – not if, but when – recognize. Mr. Murphy, the gentleman of “if it can happen, it will” fame, has assured us this nonsense will continue until time immemorial. Laughter, as soon as it can be mustered in relation to an incident, makes the bitter pill of embarrassment one must swallow during the calamity easier to take. Having partaken of (please note I did not say “caused”) too-numerous-to-count incidents in my lifetime, I know this first-hand. In which essay will you be forced to admit you have participated? Whether that story is still in your closet or you have trumpeted it to anyone and everyone who would listen, you must now laugh!

By Elsie Johnstone

‘Our Little Town’ outlines the life, spirit and character of a Victorian fishing village through the voices of one family across five generations. Elsie Johnstone has captured the views, thoughts and memories of 28 members of a Lakes Entrance clan that traces its origins back to William Carstairs, one of the town’s original founders and a legendary professional fisherman.
Rather than a dry history, it is a colourful, living re-creation of what it was like to grow up in a town of only a few hundred people, 320 kilometres from the state capital and dependent so much on the sea for its viability. Each voice, in its own individual way, tells of experiences and feelings as a tiny community expands. Secrets are revealed, long-held criticisms unearthed, insights given into why relationships succeeded or failed. Significant events are described, often providing vastly differing views from witnesses. Weddings, funerals, wars, the circus coming to town, football, surfing, tourism, negotiating the treacherous waters of the Entrance, the skills, strength and vitality of the women keeping the families going while the men went off to work out to sea or at the Salmon Company; all this and more is outlined in an accessible, enjoyable read.
The storytellers range from Jack Allen, then 86, to Megan Allen who was 14 when she wrote her story. In between there are daughters and sons, aunts and uncles, cousins and grandchildren – all descendants of Robert and Annie (Carstairs) Allen – offering their views in their own individual style.
Across 80 years, from the arrival of electricity to the establishment of the first internet café, ‘Our Little Town’ carries the memoirs of ordinary people going about their ordinary lives. That is its charm.

Orphan

By T.R. Connolly

Brazil! At once exciting and exotic; rich and poor; ambitious and laconic. Beckoning the world to come. Bem-vindo! It is time. The world stage awaits and the table is set. The Olympics! A showcase for the world to see. Rio, Amazonia, Brasilia, and Sao Paolo. Favellas, music, and Carnival. World class slums; first-class beaches. The beautiful people. Seven hundred years ago native Kayapo Indians owned the earth, the jungle. Sugarloaf was merely a mountain; Christ had not yet come to the New World. Canoes plied the Amazon River, the River Negro, and the Xinga; trade flourished between tribes. An empire existed. Now the world will come and see its oxygen plant, see the mighty Amazon, the watershed of a nation, and visit its exotic jungles. That is, if Brazil can survive the street protests of millions over corruption, the Zika virus, an underground river undermining a stadium, and Chunk DeLuna, the beast of Brazil.

By Gary A Schnabel

Clayt is not a large man. He is the Sheriff of Wallowa County, Oregon in 1892. Wallowa County is an isolated, idyllic and peaceful corner of Northeastern Oregon, and Clayt aims to keep it that way. This soft spoken, pint sized, two fisted lawman manages his corner of the world with an iron will, a cool head and an eagerness to engage the toughest challenge head-on.

While camping on the shores of Wallowa Lake with his wife Elnora (Norey) and two daughters, Clayt encounters a young boy emerging from the forested hillside, exhausted, hungry and on the run from a pair of hired killers. The Sheriff decides he should protect the boy from these would-be assassins and find out why they are after him. Young Philip Ainsley tells a story of riches, religion, debauchery and death from his early years in San Francisco’s Barbary Coast to his recent life on the Portland, Oregon water front.

Thirteen year old Philip’s wealthy father was killed by his ruthless business partner, now using his hired thugs to find and kill Philip, who had witnessed the murder. If Philip lives to tell the story, Gus Dekker’s accumulated fortune is history, and so is Gus Dekker.

A series of hired guns shows up in the Wallowa Valley via rail, river boat, stage coach and horseback looking for Philip. Unfortunately for them, they run head first into Sheriff James Clayton Shackelford. The sparks and the bullets fly as Clayt, with his father-in-law and his two deputies, and with the aid of a large Nez Perce Indian preacher whose name translates in English to “Great Bear Who Runs Fast”, confronts each threat with his considerable bag of old west law enforcement tools. And Philip, a city boy, learns the ways of the west.

Meanwhile, a federal investigation has opened into the disappearance of the son of a well-known San Francisco politician and Augustus Dekker is a suspect. Young Phillip, the son of Dekker’s deceased partner, was given a box of documents and other artifacts by his father the day he was killed. The box is securely stashed in a pawn shop with the only ticket being held in the possession of his father’s trusted friend Annie Laurie McGregor. U.S. Marshal Sweeny is looking for any piece of evidence he can find.

Could the box contain the evidence the Marshal needs? Where is the box? Can the Sheriff protect young Philip from the would-be killers? Where is Philip? Can the Marshal connect San Francisco with Portland with Wallowa County and Sheriff Clayt before hired assassins get to young Philip Ainsley?

All this adds up to a unique, entertaining, semi-whimsical, semi-historical romp through the Old West, as it really was.

By Harold Antony ‘Tony’ Larkins

Throughout the 1980s, Christopher Skase could do no wrong. The Australian businessman had the golden touch, turning a pot of $20,000 into a global development, tourism and media conglomerate worth billions.
His award-winning Mirage resorts on the Gold Coast and Port Douglas set international benchmarks in design, luxury and style; his media interests grew to include a television network spanning the nation; his eye for a business bargain with hidden potential never seemed to fail him.
With glamorous wife Pixie by his side, the French champagne flowed. Yachts, parties, Rolls-Royces, jets, the world was the couple’s oyster, and they were rarely out of the headlines.
Then it all came crashing down. Quickly. And hard. A series of commercial and national events combined to strike like an economic tsunami and suddenly the name Qintex was being washed away forever.
The next decade was spent on the Spanish island of Mallorca, the cash and the high life long gone, as they tried to recover their losses and start afresh.
But illness began to dog him and ultimately, imprisoned in a hospital gaol ward, life was reduced to fighting off orders to extradite him back to Australia.
How did it all happen? Where did it all go wrong for the man dubbed ‘Señor Skase’? What was the mysterious lung disease that created such intrigue and prevented him from returning home? Did it really? Was he putting it on? What did he really die of?
And, when the smoke cleared, where did all the money go?
Tony Larkins knows all the answers.
Married to Pixie’s oldest daughter, Tony Larkins spent nearly eleven years on Mallorca working side by side with Christopher Skase as he tried to re-establish his life, his business and his credibility.
Trials, punch-ups, projects, drink, drugs, breakdowns, madness, threats, gaols, extraditions, guns, gun-runners, movie stars and a hacienda full of huskies, it was a dramatic saga that a constantly marauding media pack ensured was rarely out of the headlines.
Now, the truth. By the man who lived through it all.
Skase, Spain and Me.
Never a dull day.
