Skeeter Products, manufacturer of Skeeter brand boats, signed a multiyear agreement to be the exclusive boat sponsor for “Addictive Fishing,” a TV fishing show airing in Florida on Fox Sun Sports and nationally on The Sportsman’s Channel.

Capt. Blair Wiggins, a professional guide for 12 years, is the host of “Addictive Fishing.” Also known as the “Mogan Man,” he has attracted a loyal following.

"We are excited about the relationship with ‘Addictive Fishing,’ ” Skeeter Boats senior vice president and general manager Jeff Stone Sr. said in a statement. “We have a brand-new line of Skeeter saltwater bay boats and are excited that these new high-performance models will be showcased on AF TV as Blair chases fish inshore, near shore and offshore throughout the Southeast U.S. We are really excited to work with the ‘Addictive Fishing’ team in the upcoming seasons.”

The show’s YouTube channel has nearly 40,000 subscribers.

“Having Skeeter’s bay boats that can perform inshore, near shore and offshore gives us a wider variety of production scenarios,” the show’s executive producer, Kevin McCabe, said in a statement. “Viewers will get to see the versatility of one boat that can do it all. It makes my job much easier.”

“I love the fishability, smooth dry ride and huge bait-well capacities of the Skeeters SX series of bay boats. It’s also great to be running Yamaha motors, the leader in outboard technology and reliability,” Wiggins said in a statement.
