About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

PRIMEDIA and Destineer's Bold Games today announced a new 3-D fishing simulation, In-Fisherman Freshwater Trophies. Available now for the PC, In-Fisherman Freshwater Trophies combines the editorial expertise of PRIMEDIA's In-Fisherman magazine with remarkably realistic graphics and innovative gameplay features.

"PRIMEDIA's core outdoor brands cater to a very targeted and committed audience and we're thrilled to be able to bring the country's leading outdoor lifestyle pursuit to new audiences with In-Fisherman Freshwater Trophies," said Jeff Paro, President of PRIMEDIA Outdoors. "Our outdoor brands translate well into products that appeal to the passionate enthusiast who looks to incorporate their interests into their lifestyle, and PRIMEDIA Outdoors has something for every outdoors devotee."

Adds Paul Rinde, Chief Executive Officer of Destineer, "For more than 27 years, no other magazine has delivered cutting-edge, freshwater fishing information like In-Fisherman. Now, we are blending In-Fisherman's input and expertise with truly remarkable graphics technology to create an authentic freshwater fishing experience."

In-Fisherman Freshwater Trophies incorporates the expertise of In-Fisherman editors at every step - from selecting the lakes to ensuring correct fish behavior. The result is a realistic, 3D fishing simulation that features 10 of the top freshwater lakes nationwide, including Minnesota's Lake of the Woods and South Carolina's Santee-Cooper Reservoir, as well as one of 30 different species of North American game fish, each perfectly modeled and shaded to ensure accuracy.

Several modes of play allow fishing on the lake or from shore, while a Tournament Career Mode lets players compete as a pro on the In-Fisherman Bass or Walleye Tours, or create their own tour. As in real life, weather plays an important part in the experience as players try to determine which of the 70 lures or live baits they will need. In addition, In-Fisherman Freshwater Trophies offers a special Pro Tips feature that provides players with the best angling information taken from the pages of In-Fisherman magazine.

In-Fisherman Freshwater Trophies is rated "E" for Everyone and is now available at retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $19.99. More information about In-Fisherman Freshwater Trophies is available at
