Expanded MLF show set for Saturday

Expanded MLF show set for Saturday

For the first time ever, Outdoor Channel will broadcast a 2-hour Major League Fishing episode Saturday as Brent Erhler, Shaw Grigsby, Greg Hackney, Tim Horton, Aaron Martens and Kevin VanDam compete for the title at the General Tire Summit Cup from northern Michigan.

The show, which was filmed last summer, airs at 2 p.m. Eastern time (check local listings).

“Outdoor Channel has made a tremendous commitment to Major League Fishing and our fans,” said MLF GM Jim Wilburn. "The 2-hour televised event is monumental for the sport of tournament bass fishing. It is a huge deal, and we are proud to present the in-depth coverage in a way that has never before been seen on television."

The show will feature action from Grand Lake, a popular, 5,700-acre body of water located roughly 20 miles north of Alpena, Mich. It's heavily populated with smallmouth bass.

“A lot of people not from here seem to think that Michigan lakes are all alike, but that’s not the case,” said VanDam, a lifelong Michigan resident. “We’ve gotten a completely different feel from Hubbard to Long (lakes that hosted the first two rounds of the Summit Cup), and Grand Lake is going to be something entirely different.”
