Beginning this Sunday, April 7, Sportsman Channel is hosting their annual month-long bass fishing programming event, Attack of the Bass! No place on TV will provide more bass fishing action and expertise, just in time for the fishing season with epic four-hour marathons every Sunday starting April 7 from 8 am to noon ET.
Plus, BASS: The Movie is hosting their U.S. network premiere on Sportsman Channel in two parts on April 21 and 28 beginning at 11 am ET. Watch a video promo of the special marathon, find Sunday schedules at thesportsmanchannel.com/aob and be sure to follow #swimmingdead on Twitter.
"Bass fishermen of America prepare yourselves for the annual 'Attack of the Bass,'" said Gavin Harvey, CEO of Sportsman Channel. "This saturation-celebration of America's most popular game fish reflects Sportsman's commitment to deliver the very best and most authentic fishing programming and personalities in television."
Each four hour marathon is loaded with the best bass fishing action and information from leading experts and champions. Bass enthusiasts pursuing bucketmouths or bronzebacks will receive tips and tricks from iconic anglers including Doug Stange of In-Fisherman, the Tour Elite on Strike King's Fish Hard, Scott Turnage of G3 Sportsman, and many more.
BASS: The Movie, produced by Howard Productions, is a road trip for America's most infamous underwater creature: The Largemouth Bass. This documentary will show trophy catches and new ways the film creators found to get them to bite. Fly rod pros will match skills with conventional tackle pros - and show why the next big thing in light tackle fishing is upon us: A fish that lies just out of sight and hits you every time like the first swing in a bar fight.
Attack of the Bass presented by Chevy Silverado will air on Sunday, April 7, 14, 21 and 28, as the network presents four hours of bass fishing programming from 8 am to 12 pm ET.
