One of my favorite parts of this job is going to trade shows, fishing towns and even council meetings to see the faces of fishermen and their families.
It's the same reason our annual Crew Shots spread is one I look forward to all year. And judging by the feedback and submissions we get every year, it's a favorite among our readers, as well.
In fact, participation has been so high in recent years that we started putting our bonus shots on the NF website.
This year, we're lagging a bit behind, so I'm sounding the call.
Don't let Crew Shots go by the wayside! It's time to show your industry pride.
Send your 2011 pics to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to include Crew Shots 12 in the subject line. We will also need to know names of those pictured (from left to right), the boat, home port, location (if not the home port), fishery and gear type. The more information you include and the larger your image, the better your chances are for getting into the magazine or on the cover!
Submit slides or prints addressed to me at National Fisherman, 121 Free St., Portland, ME 04101 and write Crew Shots on the envelope. We will scan and return them to you.
The deadline for Crew Shots submissions is Oct. 31, 2011.
