City Limits Fishing returns for third season
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -VERSUS will debut the third season of City Limits Fishing with Mike Iaconelli on Friday, February 12, at 9 p.m. ET. The six-episode series, produced by Gannett Video Enterprises, follows host and professional angler Mike “Ike” Iaconelli as he uncovers some of the best urban places to fish throughout the United States.
In each episode of City Limits Fishing, Iaconelli, the 2006 Bass Angler of the Year and runner-up in the 2009 Bassmaster Classic, is accompanied by professional and amateur anglers as they face the weekly challenge of catching a limit of fish within the boundaries of some of the country’s greatest cities, including Phoenix, Boston, Pittsburgh, Memphis, Milwaukee and Jacksonville.
“We are very excited to bring this unique show back to VERSUS for a third season,” said Jeff Macaluso, Director of Field Sports & New Media Programming for VERSUS. “Mike Iaconelli is not only entertaining and outrageous, he’s also an accomplished professional angler who lets viewers in on his unique tactics on how to catch fish in locations not frequently thought of as hotbeds for fishing.”
The complete schedule for City Limits Fishing follows, all times 9 p.m. ET (schedule subject to change):
City Limits Fishing starts off the season by accomplishing what may seem impossible – fishing in the desert, but Iaconelli and fellow professional bass fisherman Brett Hite prove that it’s possible in man-made lakes in Phoenix and Tempe, Ariz.
Beantown welcomes Iaconelli and his friend Rich Armstrong as they head to Boston Harbor to catch a limit of striped bass, but the challenge intensifies as they encounter heavy fog while on the water.
In the third episode, Iaconelli heads to Pittsburgh-a place where he has enjoyed some of the biggest successes and disappointments of his professional career-to fish the three rivers, the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio.
This episode features Iaconelli as he travels to Memphis to fish for bass on the mighty Mississippi River.
Iaconelli is fishing in Milwaukee harbor attempting to catch some monster brown trout. Not only is he challenged to catch a limit, but to also catch the largest brown trout he’s ever caught in his life.
Iaconelli and guide Jim Anderson go for a difficult and challenging saltwater slam in Jacksonville, FL, and they run and gun the St. Johns River, eventually finding a huge pod of redfish.
