Great Lakes Scuttlebutt magazine was founded in 1992 by Jerry Kyle. He quickly established a “free” boating magazine model with distribution at marinas, yacht clubs, boat shows, marine stores and businesses. After working the western basin of Lake Erie and western Lake St. Clair for nine years with great success, Jerry retired and passed the magazine along to his son, Erik Kyle, who expanded the publication's reach to all the coasts all along the Great Lakes. In the mid 2000’s, the magazine went fully gloss and started to use multiple digital platforms like a website, newsletter “Scuttlebitts”, social media outlets, and a very powerful digital version of each issue.
Today, Great Lakes Scuttlebutt offers six issues every year, can be found at over 1,500 marine locations throughout the Great Lakes in addition to 47 boat shows per year, and reaches tens of thousands of boaters online every issue. Our mission has never changed: To provide an effective meeting place for boaters and boating businesses. We’re happy to serve the boaters of the Great Lakes region.
