Senior Field Editor

Tom Melton has been part of The Fisherman staff for nearly two decades having served as managing editor from 1994 to 2005 before taking on the part-time roll of senior field editor. He has written hundreds of articles covering inshore saltwater, surf and freshwater fishing, and is author of Fishing the Long Island Coast. He currently writes the South Shore and Freshwater reports for The Fisherman's Long Island edition, and is a frequent contributor to the Partyboating and Freshwater columns.

A highly-respected angler, Tom is as comfortable working a small pond for largemouth bass as he is standing waist deep in a roaring surf, or on the deck of an open boat. He is a past president of the Metropolitan Outdoor Press Association as well as a member of the Long Island Outdoor Communicators Network and Great South Bay Anglers Club.
