Marlin - - CONTENTS - Franky Pet­to­rina Via Face­book

There are many times I have felt Mar­lin over­looks the fish­ing right here in our own back­yard: South Florida, the Mid-At­lantic and the Gulf Coast.

I know it’s kind of a crappy thing for me to say af­ter the great com­pli­ment I was given by be­ing in­cluded in the ar­ti­cle on Ocean City [Mary­land] ver­sus Stu­art [Florida] this past spring [June/July 2016]. But many times the mag­a­zine seems to fo­cus on the unattain­able des­ti­na­tions and the far away. Not to­day.

Man, I opened the new­est is­sue [March 2017] ... the Edi­tor’s Let­ter by An­drew Cox [“Des­ti­na­tion USA”] was prob­a­bly one of the best I have read in a long time. Maybe I am bi­ased be­cause I am for­tu­nate to run in some re­ally cool cir­cles, and the open­ing col­umn was filled with friends of mine. But ei­ther way, ku­dos to Mar­lin for spot­light­ing the good ol’ US of A! Also, con­grats to my friends who were men­tioned in the ed­i­to­rial — you guys de­serve every bit of credit you were given!
