Magazine For The Trailer-Boat Fisherman Debuts

 BoatUS ANGLER magazine premieres this month, the first of three issues delivered each year to members of the BoatUS ANGLER program, select fishing clubs, and West Marine locations across the United States.

The goal for the new magazine is to provide fishing information to boat-owning anglers among the 650,000 members of the association and to spread the word of its specialty services for fishermen.

Mike Pellerin, director of the BoatUS ANGLER program is editor-in-chief, and Taylor Wilson is managing editor. BoatUS ANGLER features will include fishing and boating information from experts, and the latest on bass, walleye, and crappie as well as near-shore saltwater angling.

Writers will include Bill Dance on bass, Wally Marshall on crappie, Gary Roach on walleye, and Nick Honachefsky on stripers and near-shore species.

In addition, readers can get answers to angling questions from pro angler and guide Steve Chaconas and fishing legend Bill Dance in the magazine's “Angling Answers” column.

Each issue will offer something for the entire family, including recipes, young-angler stories and tips, quizzes and crossword puzzles. The overall goal is to make fishing a more enjoyable and a safe, worry-free pastime.

Other regular topics will include technical tips and advice, trailering information, boating safety, conservation and do-it-yourself articles from other award-winning BoatUS publications.

The magazine will also promote the association's various benefits such as specialized fishing boat insurance, on-the-water and on-the-road towing assistance programs, discounts at BoatUS Cooperating Marinas and member rebates on equipment purchased at West Marine stores.
