It's that time of year. We are hustling and bustling around our Portland offices preparing to ship our show issue that will arrive with us in Seattle for Pacific Marine Expo at the end of November.

If you've ever wanted to give the editors of National Fisherman what-for to our faces instead of our inboxes, now's your chance. We'll be gathering for Breakfast with the Editors and Profitable Harvest on the last day of the expo, Thursday, Nov. 29.

The Profitable Harvest program this year is all about reducing fuel consumption. If you sign up, you'll hear from experts in the field of alternative fuels, as well as renowned naval architects like Hal Hockema and Jonathan Parrott on how to design and build your next boat with efficiency in mind.

It's a three-hour information-packed session for just $50.

From Profitable Harvest, we'll launch right into the Fisherman of the Year contest on the show floor. Each of four heats offers a $100 prize — and more for the grand prize winner. And that's just one day at the expo. Make sure you leave time to cruise the booths on the show floor, take advantage of many show specials to equip your boat and outfit yourself for the upcoming season, and visit the Author's Corner to meet some of your favorite salty authors.

If you're interested in any or all of these events, book your ticket now for Pacific Marine Expo, Tuesday, Nov. 27 through Thursday, Nov. 29.

We'll see you at the expo!
