Editor’s Log: They’re Ba-ack!

The weekly issues of The Fisherman Magazine, that is!

Beginning this week, subscribers to The Fisherman Magazine will once again receive password protected access to our weekly editions online at TheFisherman.com. Starting with the April monthly edition—both online and in print—active subscribers can also access the full array of weekly “how to” columns online covering inshore, offshore, freshwater and surf fishing throughout the region. Members of The Fisherman will get access to the full regional calendar of events, news and information, as well as weekly editorials for New England, Long Island and metro New York, and the New Jersey and Delaware Bay issues.

The Fisherman will also be kicking off our annual Dream Boat Fishing Challenge, a season long, multi-species, region-wide fishing contest in which active subscribers compete to win amazing prizes starting on May 1, including a Steiger Craft 255 CC with Yamaha 300HP outboard.

Our Coastal Kayak Clash will also kick off again on May 1 providing our members with a shot at a new Hobie kayak in this year’s top prize, while our Black Drum Battle will also commence again in May where subscribers also get a shot at a $500 cash prize on top of the first place prize package presented by PENN.

And with the return of the weekly edition means a return to more cover photo opportunities for you!

To that end, I am putting out the annual call for fishing photos. While I’d prefer them to be recent pictures of fish caught this season, I can make an exception for some of last season’s exception catches, too. Either way, you need to email them to me at tlapinski@thefisherman.com. Be sure to include a brief description of the catch including the angler’s name, species of fish, general location where the fish was landed and any other pertinent details which you would like to share. Please do your best to be mindful of the scene as well as the condition of the fish and be sure to shoot in a vertical format. As always, special consideration will be given to action shots, photos including happy smiling children and scenes which convey the overall enjoyment of fishing.

Email me the original, unedited version of the image. PLEASE do not go ahead and edit the image yourself, add graphics or anything else that you think might make the image better; leave that to the professionals! Also, please do not mail hard copies of images as they must then be scanned and they lose much of their clarity. Along those same lines, do not print an image and then take a picture of the printed image to then email it to me (this happens more often than you’d believe!)

So regardless of whether you are a bait fisherman, fly guy (or gal), a fanatical purist or the just a fun-seeking fair-weather angler, that next catch just might land your smiling face on the cover of an upcoming copy of The Fisherman Magazine.

Good luck!
