For millions of North American anglers, fishing is much more than the lures, tackle or tactics we use to catch fish. It’s the challenge of discovery; the crisp morning air awakening your senses as you motor across the lake. It’s the hunt for the hot-spot. It’s the cast, and the anticipation of the next bite that ignites your excitement like nothing else on earth.
In its inaugural season, The Ultimate Fishing Experience invited TV viewers to hop aboard and join top anglers plying their craft on amazing aquatic venues across North America. For thirteen consecutive weeks, the Lund Boats Pro Staff embarked on awesome fishing adventures, showcasing incredible fisheries while teaching the audience about the hottest new angling tools and techniques.
One week, the cameras chronicle veteran walleye guides on Minnesota’s Mille Lacs Lake. The next, it’s all about small boat, small water strategies for catfish. Then learn how to rig a boat for competitive bass fishing. And experience the wonders of a Canadian fishing exploration. Further episodes highlight Great Lakes king salmon, river rats and walleye, and Missouri River multi-species action.
“The Ultimate Fishing Experience goes well beyond the typical fishing show,” says Lund Boats Marketing Director, Jason Oakes. “Not only do we showcase a variety of waters and species—everything from bass, salmon and muskies to catfish, crappies and walleye— we take each fishing expedition and focus on educating anglers on how to use the different tools available today. We run through the different layouts of the boats, educate on the trolling motors, graphs and engine selection, care and use. We also showcase different methods to achieve precise boat control as well as different angling techniques and choosing the right tackle. It’s all about helping anglers be more successful with their time on the water.”
Following a successful first season, The Ultimate Fishing Experience is currently filming new episodes for the upcoming 2015 season. Produced by Lindner Media Productions, the popular new show format includes famed hosts such as Al Lindner, Ted Takasaki and Gary and Tony Roach. Plans also call for expanded geographical TV coverage in 2015, plus all new anglers, fisheries and species.
