New website geared toward saltwater anglers

The saltwater fishing community has a new online option available for finding news, columns and video from Florida to the West Coast.

BDoutdoors.com builds upon popular forums previously featured on Bloodydecks.com by offering its growing audience an expanded format, complete with in-depth articles and product reviews, featured columnists, a multimedia viewer, recipes, forum feeds, destination features, video galleries and more.

Started by two Southern California fishermen who wanted to create a fishing forum where they could speak their minds, the site receives more than 300,000 unique visitors each month, generating nearly 7 million page views.

"No one has truly harnessed the multimedia capabilities of the web to capture the essence of the sportfishing lifestyle," said Ali Hussainy, president and co-founder of BD Outdoors, in a statement. "We want to bring the adventure and passion of the fishing world online, using the latest technologies and top-tier content from around the world."

The company hired Charlie Levine to lead the editorial development and create a team of contributors. Levine has more than 10 years of editorial experience covering recreational fishing and boating, most recently as senior editor of Marlin.

The team also hired Derek Redwine as the site's creative director. For more than 16 years, Redwine has owned and operated Boldwater, a design and Web development company that has built hundreds of websites and done design work for some of the marine industry's top destinations, TV shows and manufacturers.
