About Us


Fishing-Headquarters Online Magazine, formerly an online digital magazine that was released on a bi-monthly & seasonal basis, is now 100% website-based. Our content showcases the best fishing that can be expected during the season in which it is published. Our web contents are comprised of a collaboration of well-known fishing and outdoor writers who write for both national and regional audiences. We are the ONLY digital multi-species fishing magazine found in the Upper Midwest of the United States. Our circulation is FREE, and strictly for online readership.

Fishing-Headquarters.com has evolved into an excellent and informative online resource for multi-species fishing in North America. We offer our several hundred readers and subscribers an interactive and multi-media website that allows the free exchange and promotion of fishing and all that encompasses it.

Since our inception in 2007, we have attracted several thousands of visitors who read and browse on a monthly basis. In addition, we have reached yearly website page views of 5 million, and our homepage receives approximately half a million visits per each calendar year. From 2007 to 2013, our website was exclusively forum based. Since then, we have been entirely web content and informational, fishing videos, articles and information, marketing and advertising platforms for businesses and sponsors, and much more!

Our basis as an online publication is to drop the ego, and catch everything that swims and has fins. All fish are created as equals. Only to be pursued as opposites. Thank you for visiting.

Fishing-Headquarters focuses on educating and entertaining readers and viewers through quality articles, photography, reviews and videos. We not only showcase multi-species fishing and techniques, but we do our best to review all the new fishing tackle each year so you have a good resource for what’s good that’s new out in the fishing tackle industry. We’ll stay on top of the latest fishing trends, the latest in tackle and technology advancements and share our on-the-water experience through articles and videos. We plan our articles around the seasonal patterns to the best of our abilities.
