Fishing the Midwest, one of the Midwest’s longest-running and highest-rated fishing television shows, will begin airing its 26th year of award-winning fishing shows the weekend of December 17-18, 2016.
Fishing the Midwest will again be available for viewing on cable powerhouse Fox Sports North (Saturday mornings at 11 am) and Fox Sports Midwest (Sundays, 9:30 am & Mondays, 8:30 am) from December 17 through year end, and continuing for the first 10 weeks of 2017. In addition, Fishing the Midwest will be available on a variety of network affiliates and other carriers across the Midwest as well.
Fishing the Midwest travels to good fishing destinations close to home where its viewers can also travel to experience similar fishing successes. “We had outstanding walleye fishing on Clear Lake, Iowa, Lake Sakakawea in North Dakota, and Lake Francis Case in South Dakota among other places while filming episodes for the coming season,” stated Mike Frisch, the show’s co-host. “In addition, we had maybe our best day ever for big smallmouth bass on Lake Kabetogama in northern Minnesota!”
Highlighting the good fishing across the Midwest is one of the Fishing the Midwest’s goals. The other is to provide viewers with helpful fishing tips that they can use on their fishing trips. “Again, this year, we give our viewers practical, easy-to-master suggestions on how to catch the walleyes, bass, and panfish that swim in lakes they fish,” added Bob Jensen, Fishing the Midwest’s founder and other co-host.
“We want to help our viewers catch more fish, and the 2016-17 episodes should do just that.”
