“Chasin’ The Sun” Takes a Trip Down Memory Lane

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. – It’s a fresh take on old memories as Capt. Justin Leake and Capt. Travis Holeman watch footage from previous seasons to try to identify what is on the end of their fishing line based on the tackle they used, location and weather conditions. The award-winning television show, presented by Visit Panama City Beach, will air on Saturday, April 17 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern & Pacific / 7:30 a.m. Central on Discovery Channel.

In this week’s episode, Trick, Line & Sinker, the co-hosts review clips from previous trips to guess the fish being targeted by what is shown on the screen, which is challenging considering these anglers have caught hundreds of fish in dozens of hotspots throughout all six seasons of “Chasin’ the Sun.” The new episode features memorable moments, including a sailfish caught a few hundred yards off the sandy beach, landing one of the biggest lionfish Capt. Leake has ever snagged and stumbling upon deer swimming out into the Gulf of Mexico before being herded back toward the safety of shore.

“The amount of information we can process just by looking at a film clip is amazing,” says Capt. Leake.  “When we see the footage, all those memories come back, and we can see things from a perspective that is not always apparent to the average angler.”

Later in the episode, Capt. Holeman checks out the hot rods and vintage vehicles at Emerald Coast Cruizin, a classic car show held twice each year in Panama City Beach.

The fishing and coastal lifestyle television program showcases the diverse angling, diving and cultural opportunities found in the emerald-green waters of Panama City Beach. Season six sponsors of “Chasin’ The Sun” include Dulce Vida Tequila, Fish Monkey, Grundéns, Half Hitch Tackle, Holiday Inn Resort, Humminbird, Minn Kota and Pirates Cove Marina.
