Kayak fishing pioneer Jim Sammons is landing monster fish from his kayak once again, this time on NBC Sports! Seaguar's Extreme Kayak Fishing Challenge is now airing Fridays at 1:00 pm Eastern, putting Jim and his Ocean Kayak in 76 Million TV Households across USA.
Season 1 of Seaguar's Extreme Kayak Fishing Challenge takes viewers marlin fishing in Baja, Mexico, whitewater kayak fishing in Canada's remote wilderness, and challenging huge tuna on Panama's legendary Hannibal Banks.
"Having our show broadcast on NBC Sports is a major step for the sport of kayak fishing," says Jim Sammons, Star of the show. "It's recognition from the fishing industry that kayak fishing is more than a passing trendâ€”that the benefits of kayak fishing are real, and participation will continue to grow."
It's no surprise that the fishing industry is embracing the sport of kayak fishing. With the current state of both the economy and the environment, anglers are looking for cheaper and less damaging means of enjoying their passion. Not only does kayak fishing address these problems, but anglers are quickly realizing that kayaks provide an amazing fishing experience and offer some enormous advantages.
