The league features original made-for-television bass fishing events designed to bring high-level challenges to participants and entertainment, as well as angling insight, to audiences.

"We couldn't be more pleased to bring one of the great names in trucks on board at Major League Fishing," said league Commissioner Don Rucks. "Ram trucks are everywhere at fishing tournaments all over the country, and we believe their brand is a natural fit for Major League Fishing."

Major League Fishing recently concluded filming for its second event: Jack Link's Major League Fishing, the General Tire Summit Cup. The Summit Cup, filmed on Chautauqua Lake in Western New York. The event will be televised beginning on January 3, 2013, on Outdoor Channel. The Summit Cup's Championship Round will be broadcast on NBC on February 9.

The Ram Truck brand produces a host of popular trucks, including the Ram Chassis Cab, Ram 3500, Ram 2500, Ram 1500 Tradesman and the Ram C/V.

"Ram trucks are designed to meet the towing capabilities and durability that anglers demand," said Fred Diaz, President and CEO - Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico.

That is why there is a Ram truck to fit every need and lifestyle and why we are proud to sponsor Jack Link's Major League Fishing."

Major League Fishing is bringing the high-intensity, competitive sport of bass fishing into America's living rooms in the form of original one-hour TV episodes.
