“We have advertised in the Fisherman’s Post since its inception, and over those years have received innumerable referrals from their readers. Advertising with the Fisherman’s Post team is like joining a family, and they truly go out of their way to ensure their advertisers get the most bang for their buck. The loyal readership ensures we get regular visibility with our target market, which is invaluable to our business.”
Adam Meyer—Wells Marine Insurance

“I advertise with Fisherman’s Post because they are widely read, well respected, and put on excellent events. They are not just a good magazine, they are good people.”
Ryan White—Hatteras Jack / Advanced Fishing

“The on-point distribution, popularity, and integrity of the Fisherman’s Post is why I’ve been advertising with them for 7 years running. I’ve booked a number of trips through my ads, and especially my involvement with the fishing schools. The web banners have been excellent for me, too. Everyone in town checks out the Post, so I know it does me good when my pictures are running in there. Overall, I’ve been extremely satisfied with the entire experience.”
Rob Koraly—Sandbar Safari Charters

“Fisherman’s Post is an easy choice for me in my yearly advertising because they are a great source of knowledge for fishing products and tackle stores and because they are easy to work with. Plus their product reviews give me a unique opportunity to get my product directly in front of a large amount of targeted readers.”
Dan Vinent—Pure Fishing

“There are two main reasons I always use Fisherman’s Post: no one targets my customer better and no other paper draws a crowd like Fisherman’s Post on print day.”
Tex Grissom—Tex’s Tackle

“I use Fisherman’s Post for three simple reasons: price and value, the ease of doing business and the professionalism of their people, and most importantly the repeated input from customers pointing to the Fisherman’s Post as their reason for calling.”
John Jarvis—Four Sons Marine

“I get a tremendous response from my ad. People call me all the time. It’s also nice to get my clients’ photos in the paper. I mail them copies, they see their photo in the paper, and it makes them feel special. That helps my return business.”
Mark Dickson—Shallow Minded Guide Fishing

“We’ve always got people in the store looking for the paper. If there’s a feature on a product or some tackle in an issue, they always come in asking for it. I’ve definitely sold a lot of Easy Hooker jigs as a result of the feature—I even had a guy call me from Maine who’s got a subscription, and we shipped a bunch to him.”
Rich Baugess—Reel Outdoors / Easy Hooker Jigs

“Getting featured in articles in the Post has really helped me get out there and made me well known as a flounder guy in the area. When people see you in there time and time again, the calls are coming. It’s been like a snowball—every year more and more people are calling. The exposure has also helped me out with getting sponsorships.”
Wayne Crisco—Last Resort Charters

“I count on Fisherman’s Post to help us reach new customers and to keep contact with existing customers. It is the most direct marketing I’ve found in the field of boating, fishing, and coastal lifestyle. Also, through tracking of my advertising, I continue to find Fisherman’s Post more than pays for itself.”
Lana Wallace—Brunswick Trailers & Marine
