TULSA – Last period momentum swings and competitive drama highlight the Championship Round of the Jack Link’s Major League Fishing 2013 GEICO Challenge Cup from Florida’s Lake Istokpoga, which begins airing Thursday at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT on Outdoor Channel, America’s Leader in Outdoor TV.
“The Championship Round on Istokpoga is a day I’ll never forget. It started slow, because Hurricane Sandy had just passed the lake, and it left our designated competition zone in almost unfishable shape,” said Major League Fishing Commissioner Don Rucks.
“As the day wore on, we made an executive decision that made for more competitive and exciting fishing. The momentum swings near the end of the day were nothing short of crazy.”
Kevin VanDam, Alton Jones, Edwin Evers, Ish Monroe, Takahiro Omori and Brent Ehrler compete for the title.
Challenge Cup coverage airs six times per week on Outdoor Channel throughout the second quarter of 2013. For air times, please check HERE.
