Tightline Tuesday, powered by Ranger Boats, is coming to the Pursuit Channel in January, Ranger announced.

“We’re anglers, too, and we couldn’t be happier that there will be a place we can go to see all of our favorite outdoor TV personalities on one channel, on the same night, catching big fish and helping to grow the sport we all love,” Ranger Boats director of marketing Bart Schad said in a statement.

“The shows that will comprise Tightline Tuesday are of the highest quality and have an enormous amount of entertainment and educational value, making this partnership between Ranger and Pursuit Channel an ideal match,” he added.

The three-hour, prime-time programming block will run from 8-11 p.m. (EST) and will include outdoor TV mainstays such as Hank Parker’s Outdoors, IFA Redfish Tour, Scott Martin Challenge, Cabela’s Fisherman Handbook, Fishing Club Journal and Fishing Texas.
