From the Editor: Untangling the Web

By Mark Nero, Managing Editor

Did you know that for many years, Fishermen’s News has had two separate websites on which its content lives?

First, there’s the “main” or “regular” Fishermen’s News website (, which hosts the content that appears in the print edition of the magazine.

There’s Fishermen’s News Online ( where certain content has been posted, like articles that are generated for our weekly Fishermen’s News newsletter, and the editorial that you’re reading right now.

The reason I point this out is that currently, our hard working staff is in the process of merging the two sites so that all content going forward will appear solely on the site.

As you may have noticed, the transition is already underway, although there’s still some time before it’s complete. Currently, if you go to the “main” site, you’ll see that all of the stories from the weekly newsletter are now being posted there, while activity has come to a standstill on the Blogspot site.

The idea is that this consolidation will make things easier for you as a reader, since all the magazine and newsletter content will be all under one roof, so to speak, and you won’t have to search multiple websites to find it.

The process is ongoing but is expected to be complete in the near future. I’ll update you once the migration is nearing completion.

To be clear, for the time being, all the previously published Fishermen’s News newsletter content will remain on the Blogger site – for now. But the site will no longer be the home for new content, will.

By the way, also new to the “main” site are digital versions of previous issues of the magazine. Currently, you can find all articles from the April/May, June/July and August issues by going to the site and clicking on the “Issues” tab under the logo on the left side of the home page.

And with all that said, if you have any questions, comments or concerns about the changeover – or anything else to do with the magazine, feel free to reach out to me at the email address below. Thanks.
