About Us

At Fisherman First, we create actionable content for fishermen & crabbers.

We are here to help those who are looking for advice, how-to’s, reviews, and news on everything from crab traps to boats, fishing gear, and crabbing locations.

With so much out there today it can be tough to find the right information you need to plan your next day crabbing or trip out to fish on the coast. 

Our goal is to provide our readers with the most informed, data-backed, and honest articles, guides and reviews we can on the topic of fishing, and more specifically shellfishing as well as saltwater fishing. 

Why We Do This

We’ve been frustrated with the quality of online reviews and how-to’s online to date, not only are most of them poorly researched and written but they also tend to prioritize affiliate partnerships.

We’re building the coastal fishing and shellfishing resource we wish we always had. As we face new challenges and learn about new topics we’ll be documenting it here via new articles and news.

Why Fisherman First?

We’re a team of fishing and hunting enthusiasts with 10+ years of experience out on the waters.
