Discovery Channel Showcases Saltwater Underground With Nick Honachefsky Throughout February

Sunday mornings are about to get salty. Saltwater Underground with Nick Honachefsky kicks off Discovery Channel’s block of fishing shows; Sunday mornings at 5:00 AM throughout February.

The upcoming 2024 Season of Saltwater Underground on Discovery is set to both entertain and educate with special guest underground stars such as WWE pro wrestling Hall of Famer Jake the Snake Roberts, Man Vs. Food Host Casey Webb, rock star Dean Ween, and strongman influencer Mike Counihan.

“Saltwater Underground is a bit different than other dramatized or scripted fishing shows,” said Honachefsky. “Characters in the fishing world, especially in New Jersey, are interesting and loose enough to tell an engaging story with flavor. I think the real appeal for viewers is that we let the camera roll freely and see what happens on the prolific and booming fisheries of the Northeast grounds.”  

Saltwater Underground is the only national fishing show based in the Northeast showcasing wet and wild fisheries TV viewers rarely see on camera such as striped bass, fluke, bluefin tuna, white perch and more being caught by a lineup of colorful characters. “I like to think that the laid back, fun approachable vibe of the show, sprinkled with some suspect celebrity guests, resounds with anglers from all walks of life – to feel that you’re there with us enjoying the fun,” said Honachefsky. “Educate, entertain and inspire. That’s the idea. While we not only teach species-specific tactics throughout each episode, along with giving up some seriously delicious seafood recipes, my ultimate goal is when someone watching is eating their breakfast getting ready for work, I want to put a smile on their face and inspire them to take that sick day off work the next day to get out to fish. Remember that life is too short not to be fishing.”

Honachefsky has been a fixture in the sport fishing industry as a writer and editor for the past 25 years.

Saltwater Underground’s growing stable of sponsors include Yo-Zuri, Bubba Blade, IslandX Lures, Fisherman’s Supply, RonZ lures, Grundens, and Grumpy’s Tackle.   

The February Lineup of episodes includes:

February  4 – A New Tuna Crew

February 18 – Jake the Snake Vs. Stripers

February 25 – Surf Striped Bass Blitz
