2022 Holiday Edition

Welcome to the Nineteenth Annual Holiday Edition of Mike's Maritime Memorabilia!   Over the years we have posted nearly 2,200 vintage photos for all to enjoy and our nineteenth 2022 Holiday Edition includes 30 exceptional photographs of party fishing boats and the men behind them dating from 1870 through 2021.   The photophotos and their captions illustrate some of the rich and interesting history that surrounds them and simply put, this is our fishing heritage – enjoy and celebrate it!

Thank you for taking the time to view our fishing trip down memory lane and accept our heartfelt wishes for a Wonderful Holiday Season.   It's our Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year wishes all rolled into one joyous and resounding roar!   God Bless America!

Special thanks go to John Bogan Jr., Ken Ekberg, Joe Galluccio, Ed Keefe Jr., Bryant Martin and Michael Scher for generously contributing some of the fine photographs and background information for the 2022 Holiday Edition.
