Check out the July issue of Fishermen's News.
No it's not another choice, juicy Vic Smith letter.

Bob Tkacz has a great article on the UFA endorsement.

"UFA Endorses Murkowski for Governor"

I wish I didn't have to rush out to go fishing or I would figure out how to reprint that here.
It's a great piece. And though Bob is no friend of Franks necessarily, he does what a "real" journalist does and reports on the facts and basics of the story.

Oftentimes there are folks who call themselves journalists or "the very best of the "fishery analysts" or whatever, and all they really are is a whackjob with a computer.

But Mr. Tkacz here, he is for real.
Do I like what he writes about me. Does he like me? Probably a big NOT.

But in the end he is not just a gossip columnist, Weekly World News variety that some of the bloggers push, but he really is a writer and he really lives in Alaska and he really gives a darned about the Alaska seafood industry and Alaskans. Like him or dislike him, he's the real mccoy, he's no phony.

Keep the faith.

    I have to say Bobby, you sound like a gossip columnist. You must be talking about AlaskaReport with their columns. But like John Enge said, the truth hurts. Good luck with your blog. Mike Wilson, Ketchikan
