Bass Fishing Competition To Make A Splash On NBC: Major League Fishing Season 2 Championship Airs On February 9

TULSA, Okla., Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Viewers are invited to tune in to NBC on Saturday, February 9, at 1 p.m. ET/ Noon CT for a special airing of the Championship Round of the 2013 General Tire Summit Cup of " Jack Link's Major League Fishing."

Jack Link's Major League Fishing, the first competitive bass fishing league of its kind, was developed through a joint effort between Outdoor Channel, America's Leader In Outdoor TV, and 24 of the premiere bass fishing anglers in the country. The unique format allows participants to weigh all of the score-able bass that they catch and immediately release them back into the water. All boats are equipped with real-time leader boards that allow anglers to know where fellow competitors stand in the competition at any given time.

The Summit Cup was filmed on Chautauqua Lake in Western New York. In another Major League Fishing deviation from traditional tournaments, anglers were kept in the dark about the Chautauqua Lake location until three days prior to the start of competition. Major League Fishing anglers aren't permitted to practice at league sites prior to the event.

"A core tenet of Major League Fishing is to drive a greater awareness and appreciation for the sport of bass fishing," said Major League Fishing General Manager 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."

Currently airing its second season on Outdoor Channel, viewers have been enjoying the intense competition of the two Elimination Rounds taking place on the waters of the 13,000-acre Chautauqua Lake. Round 1 followed the 24 anglers over the course of three days, where half of the competitors were eliminated. This was followed by the Round 2 Sudden-Death event, where only six competitors advance.
