Suzuki sponsoring TV show

Mike Frisch, host of Fishing the Midwest television series, announced that Suzuki would be the exclusive outboard motor of the show.

Frisch will be running a Larson 2020 FX DC powered by a new Suzuki DF300AP V6 4-stroke outboard, as well as a Larson 1750 FX TL, powered by a Suzuki DF90A Inline 4 4-stroke outboard.

“Suzuki has a reputation for building high quality outboard engines and we are excited to run them on our boats,” said Frisch in a statement. “Before making any change, we gather as much information as we can about a product. The Suzuki owners and dealers we visited with all raved about their quiet, smooth-running performance and how dependable they are. In fact, bullet-proof reliability and great performance were common themes we heard from users.”

Episodes shot this summer will air beginning in 2019.

“We’re looking forward to working with Mike and his team,” said Suzuki Motor of America sales vice president Gus Blakely. “Our dealer network in the region is growing and the increased visibility from Mike’s show and his fishing school will help bring more people to all our local Suzuki Marine dealers.”
