Jim Hutchinson, Jr.

A Jersey Shore native, Jim Hutchinson, Jr. was hired in 2002 as managing editor of The Fisherman’s New Jersey edition, moving to New York in 2006 to take over as executive editor of all the regional editions following the retirement of his mentor, Pete Barrett.  Having covered saltwater fisheries issues extensively, Hutch left The Fisherman in 2009 for a six-year stint as managing director of the Recreational Fishing Alliance a national political organization dedicated to safeguarding the rights of saltwater anglers and the recreational fishing industry; he returned to The Fisherman in early 2015 as New Jersey edition managing editor.

A lifelong hunter, angler, and freelance writer, he’s been actively involved in state organizations including New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium, the Tuckerton Seaport Museum, and as president of the Long Beach Island Surf Fishing Tournament.  When not at his desk, he can typically be found on The Road (the name of a small center console he keeps in South Jersey) or surfcasting the beaches near his home in Brick, NJ.
