Fred Garth began his career as a sports writer for a daily newspaper before cell phones and microwave ovens. In the 30 years since, he has worked for media giants such as the New York Times, Gannett Inc. and National Geographic. He has launched more than a dozen print magazines, numerous websites and serves on many conservation organizations.

A native of the Gulf Coast, Daryl has been editing and writing for outdoor enthusiast magazines for nearly two decades. He proudly identifies as a “half-neck,” embracing both a love of literary pursuits and a deep appreciation for shootin’ stuff. He’s also a bona fide fishing freak, having hooked his first speckled trout at the tender age of 6 on a white and pink stingray grub. For each issue of GHM, Daryl works with contributors to craft and refine each story, news blurb, and product review; striving to make every page both informative and flavorful.
After her first job as a mermaid at Gulf World (true story), JJ took off into the Real World to try to learn a little something that could actually provide a living. After learning a little something, she joined a troupe of radio announcers and launched into a career in the exciting world of broadcasting. She discovered that she was pretty good at telling people what to do (...with their advertising, And marketing!) She’s not bossy, like that. At least as far as we know. BUT, being the mermaid that she was, (and a pretty good angler, if she must say so, herself) she yearned for the sea. One day, this GUY came along and offered her a job. On the water. In a boat. With a rod, and a pen, and a calculator, oh and a laptop) And the moral of this story is: if you want the most creative ideas and successful marketing campaigns, you need to call JJ. Or take her fishing.
Don’t let that sweet, demure smile fool you. Penny Lane runs a tight ship at the Guy Harvey Magazine office. Aside from making sure everyone receives their highly anticipated issues of the magazine on time, she does pretty much everything and anything you can imagine to keep the magazine running smoothly. It’s been said that she wears more hats than the collective women at the Kentucky Derby. But as you can see from the picture, she’s not into horse racing; she’s into kayak fishing. And pictures don’t lie. She really IS that sweet and demure.
Nathan is our Art Director who handles all the layout and design of the magazine.

Nathan is also a professional musician having played guitar and toured the US with a number of bands over the past decade. He has two pups (Bigsby and Babygrrl), and when he's not clicking away on a computer or riffing on a guitar, he enjoys riding motorcycles, wrenching on old cars, traveling and hiking.
Justin, (aka “Jason” to some) is the Fisherman’s Marketer, and brings a unique perspective to his clients. Justin began life’s journey bass fishing along the southeastern coast of Georgia, then meandered down to north Florida and ended up in Pensacola, where we snagged him. Today he spends most of his “off” time fishing inshore salt, but it wasn’t that long ago that he had little time for fishing at all. He and his wife ran their own hot sauce business, while working other jobs. When we found him, he was a top gun at a supply business. Cleaning supply. We decided he’d be better off cleaning fish and helping our clients ‘clean-up’ in sales. His clients love him for his fishing knowledge, personal business acumen and downright-good-natured-southern-humor. We do too, even though he constantly reminds us that the “job’s not done till the paperwork is finished.” Must be cleaning supply humor….
