and all those weekend warriors that make our sport tick!

As summer time gets in full swing Bass West USA is getting ready to go out and start filming for season 3 of our award winning series. It seems almost surreal that time has gone by so fast and it was just three years ago I was filming our initial pilot and heading to ICASt to see if manufactures were interested in filling the void of no real western based bass programs. Well 26 episodes, 60 different guests and 5 awards later including a sports Emmy nomination, Bass West has found its home with viewers not only in the United States, but Canada, Europe and parts of Africa and the Middle East.


2 is currently airing on The Pursuit Channel (Dish channel 240 and Direct TV 604) all 13 episodes will be available through summer on Pursuit and they are the largest rated outdoor network that is standard on both satellite carriers. Season 1 is still in airing for everyone that missed last season and it has been playing all spring on WFN. Season 2 will kick off on WFN in July, as well as Wild TV (Canada and Europe) and Untamed Sports in the US and Middle East (Cox Cable). A few other smaller networks in the upper mid west and eastern US will get the new season as well so hopefully no matter where you live you can catch an episode. If online is your thing, check out The Outdoor Channels www. or go directly to and you will

be able to catch all 26 episodes the remainder of the year as well. I get a lot of emails and questions about certain rigs and baits, so going to these sites - even after enjoying the show on these fine networks - can be informative. Best of all the products used in each show are located on the Bass West web site. We have had a great year and we really would like to thank M3 Productions and Cornerstone Productions for all their hard work in bringing Season 2 to life and improving the overall quality of the shows as well as the informative side. We also have had some great additions to our partner list and they include: Legend Boats, Livingston Lures, Power Pole, Lidd Up Coolers, Boat Bling Cleaning Products, Bass Tackle Depot, Dobyns Rods, Bass-A-Holic Clothing, ATX Rims, EZ Loader trailers, Low- rance, Shimano, Simms Clothing, Ego Slider Nets, McCoy Line, Own-
