Fishing the WildSide ON-ICE Coming to Canadian Stations in 2007


(Jan. 17, 2007 - Walker, MN) Fishing the WildSide ON-ICE, the world's only fishing show dedicated to the sport of ice fishing, will be coming to Canada on WILD TV Canada and the World Fishing Network beginning in January of 2007. Fishing the WildSide ON-ICE will be aired on Wild TV and on the World Fishing Network. The networks are available across Canada, from British Columbia to Nova Scotia, with a combined viewership of 7,000,000. Expanding to Canada is a natural step for a show dedicated to ice angling. "The ice fishing community is a tight group of people, sharing the passion for the sport knows no boundaries or borders," says Fishing the WildSide ON-ICE host Chip Leer. "When you look at the North American ice belt without international boundaries, airing ice fishing TV over this geographic region is an obvious fit." Fishing the WildSide ON-ICE made history in 2005 as the first and only fishing television programming dedicated to the rapidly-growing sport of ice fishing. Fishing the WildSide ON-ICE just completed its second season in the US, with expanded network coverage, and an overwhelming positive response from viewers.

Viewers will see all the action, above and below the ice, with stunning underwater photography showing lures, presentation techniques, and fish in their natural environment. Whether it's monster lake trout, trophy walleyes and pike, panfish, eelpout, or perch, if it's under the ice, it's on Fishing the WildSide ON-ICE.
