A new 13-week television series aims to provide an up-close view of the impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on the Gulf of Mexico's boating and fishing communities.

Airing at 10 a.m. EDT Sundays on Fox Sports Net and presented by BoatU.S. Angler, "Cabela's Fisherman's Handbook" gives a realistic picture of conditions in the field.

Traveling to the region with show host and TV fishing personality Wade Middleton is Chris Edmonston of BoatU.S., who presents segments on how to avoid and take care of oil spill damage to your boat, hurricane preparedness and boating safety topics.

"I have spent my entire life on the water, but you just can't understand how important the water is to Gulf residents until you go down there," Edmonston said in a statement. "The water is life to them."
