The championship round of the Summit Cup, Major League Fishing's second event, will be broadcast at 1 p.m. ET Saturday on NBC. The event was filmed late last summer at New York's Chautauqua Lake.
“A core tenet of Major League Fishing is to drive a greater awareness and appreciation for the sport of bass fishing,” said MLF GM Jim Wilburn. “The airing of the championship round on NBC will give us exposure to a wider audience. We also strongly believe that Major League Fishing creates events that sports fans, not just fishing fans, will enjoy.”
Subsequent to its airing on NBC, the finale will also air on Outdoor Channel on Thursday, Feb. 14th at 9 p.m. ET.
Next up for MLF is the 2013 Geico Challenge Cup, which will begin airing on Thursday, April 4 at 9 p.m. ET as part of Outdoor Channel’s second-quarter programming lineup. The competition was filmed on Lake Istokpoga in Florida last October.
