Steve Quinn has been involved in the fishing industry and outdoor writing for 35 years, including 30 years as an editor at In-Fisherman Magazine. He combined science, media and communication to promote bass fishing and conservation across the continent. In 1989 he published the first scientific paper to demonstrate that voluntarily releasing largemouth bass clearly led to improvements in the quality of fishing.
Quinn authored hundreds of popular articles and over 50 scientific publications. He has given countless seminars across the country and been active in tournaments for decades. Quinn is the only author to receive writing awards from both Outdoor Writer’s Association of America and AFS as well as receiving the Award of Excellence from the Fisheries Management section of AFS.
