National Fisherman

jesJes Hathaway is the editor in chief of National Fisherman magazine and NationalFisherman.com.

 

Our Maine office is buzzing with travel plans and last-minute details on our trip to Seattle for Pacific Marine Expo this Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 20-22.

My anticipation starts to grow when I get thinking about my favorite aspects of the show, including meeting readers and industry leaders, watching the Fisherman of the Year Contest, and talking to authors whose books I've read over the last year.

This year, the variety of prizes and drawings should add some excitement to the show floor, like a weekend in Vegas and 50 drawings for $100 Chevron gas cards.

As usual, the conferences provide a forum for fishermen to hash out some of the hot topics on the West Coast and nationwide: offshore drilling in Bristol Bay, halibut charter issues, salmon, community supported fisheries, labeling, and Coast Guard comment sessions.

Outside of the expo, don't miss the free showing of the documentary "Red Gold" at the Seattle Art Museum Auditorium on Wednesday the 19th, from 6 to 8 pm.

If nothing else, please stop by booth 753 to say hi!
