Anglers Journal TV returns Saturday

Time marches on and Season 2 of Anglers Journal TV debuts Saturday.

Active Interest Media started a new fishing show last year in conjunction with Trade Only sister publication Anglers Journal.

The program is called, fittingly enough, Anglers Journal TV (check out Destination America, a subsidiary of the Discovery Channel).

Time marches on and Season 2 of Anglers Journal TV debuts Saturday. The new shows are in the same time slots as last year: Saturday mornings at 5:30 a.m. Eastern, and our primary showing, Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Eastern, all on Destination America. Click here for a preview.

AIM packed a film crew onto center consoles and sportfishermen, from Alaska to Mexico, under the direction of AJTV host John Brownlee, to capture what makes the intricacies and cultural differences of fishing — the eternal fight between man and fish — special around the world.

The show seeks out exotic locales, colorful characters, and amazing local cuisines, all in the hopes of showcasing the entire fishing experience — a flash of angling inspiration, the excitement of the strike and the ensuing fight, or even just the doldrums that afflict every one of us now and then — in a much more thorough and informative way than if we had simply gone there and caught one fish after another.

The show has been filming since early 2017 in some great destinations, including Venice, Louisiana; Key West, Florida; Green Turtle Cay in the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas; Tropic Star Lodge in Panama; and many others.

You can check out season one of “Anglers Journal TV” in its entirety by logging onto Waypoint TV at!/anglersjournaltv.
