Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine launches first-ever online fishing publication

AUSTIN – Just in time for the annual white bass run, Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine is launching its first-ever online-only extra, “Texas Fishing 2012.”

The 40-page digital publication, available at http://www.tpwmagazine.com/fishing2012 features a 2012 fishing forecast by TPWD staffer and long-time outdoor writer Steve Lightfoot as well as a figurative tackle box full of topical articles aimed at making your next fishing trip enjoyable and productive.

“Our focus with this digital publication, which will be produced annually, is to provide practical how-to and where-to information for Texas and out-of-state anglers,” says magazine editor Louie Bond. “In addition to our traditional high quality photos and articles, this online guide will feature videos and links to various online resources of interest to folks who love to fish.”

The publication went live Feb. 1. Unlike the traditional paper edition of Texas Parks & Wildlife, which is available only to paid subscribers, “Texas Fishing 2012” is free.

Among the articles featured in the new digital publication are “Fish Condos: If you building it, they will come,” by Dyanne Fry Cortez of TPWD’s Inland Fisheries Division; “Lunker Mania: Could This Be the Year You Catch a Whopper of a Largemouth?” by Inland Fisheries’s Larry D. Hodge and magazine editor Bond and “Enlist in the War on Aliens,” also by Hodge.

In September, Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine will be posting its first-ever digital Hunting Guide.
