WFN Presents Ice Block, a Five-Hour Marathon of Dedicated Ice Fishing Shows from Across North America Beginning Sunday at 7 p.m. ET
WFN: World Fishing Network, the leading entertainment destination and digital resource for anglers throughout North America, will air Ice Block, a five-hour programming marathon dedicated to ice fishing, on Sunday, Jan. 13 beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
As the days of drilling a hole and sitting and waiting for a fish to swim by becomes a thing of the past, strategy, mobility and technology have become more prevalent in the sport over recent years. Ice Block covers the action from varied parts of the United States and Canada as anglers from six different shows that air on WFN put their theories and practices to the test.
Ice Block starts at 7 p.m. ET with one hour of Water & Woods, hosted by John Gillespie, followed by a trio of Canadian Sportfishing episodes at 8 p.m. ET as host Italo Labignan and team go for jumbo perch, brook trout and whitefish. An episode of Fish TV that airs at 9:30 p.m. ET precedes back-to-back episodes of Hooked on Utah at 10 p.m. ET featuring ice fishing on Birch Creek and Pelican Lake. Later at 11 p.m. ET, The Next Bite heads out onto Lake Winnipeg in search of walleye with an episode of Angler West TV rounding out the Ice Block marathon at 11:30 p.m. ET.
“While much of our audience residing in the Northern United States and Canada are likely very familiar with the sport of ice fishing, Ice Block offers a unique perspective to anglers residing in warmer climates who may have never enjoyed the experience,” said senior director of marketing for WFN, Pam Stinson. “There’s no better time of the year to dedicate an evening of programming to ice fishing than now and it’s our goal with Ice Block to deliver content that regardless of whether it’s new or familiar, will still be informative and entertaining to watch.”
