Saltwater Underground with Nick Honachefsky Now Airing on Discovery Channel

Season 3 Episodes of the fishing show, Saltwater Underground with Nick Honachefsky, will now be airing Saturday mornings at 5:30 AM on Discovery Channel throughout July 2023.

“I’m amped to partner up with Discovery Channel to air Saltwater Underground with Nick Honachefsky showcasing the prolific fisheries of New Jersey,” states Honachefsky. “No other national fishing show brings the underground, edgy Jersey vibe of the angling community and I’m excited that viewers can view the unique fishing lifestyle across the country on such a revered platform as Discovery Channel.”

Saltwater Underground with Nick Honachefsky explores the wildly productive New Jersey and Northeast backwater bays, surf and ocean fishing grounds. From bluefin tuna to striped bass and blackfish, all target species are interwoven into a fun-loving, exciting and informative salty story along with showcasing savory fish recipes to take home to the dinner table.

“For 25 years, I’ve been a professional sport fishing writer and editor, fishing in over 50 countries, yet my home waters in Jersey are lit up with opportunity. Jersey definitely has a raw cast of characters,” states Honachefsky. “Not many people automatically think of New Jersey and the Northeast US when it comes to the best fishing in the US, and I’m set out to shine a light on the world class fishing here, along with a few laughs from some real characters on the way. Wait until you see what we have in store.”

Special celebrity guest anglers this season include legendary rock star frontman guitarist Dean Ween of the band Ween, pro skateboarders Mike McGill and Bucky Lasek, along with professional chef Josh Dechellis along with many other relatable characters weaving a story that will leave you inspired to hit the water.

“Fishing is number one, about fun. I’d like to think viewers watch the show and leave with a sense of passion and inspiration after watching the episodes,” adds Honachefsky. “I find too many people get caught up in competition and social media bragging and all that negative stuff and tend to forget that fishing is about enjoying time with friends and family, sharing laughs, and building memories. I want to inspire others to let loose a bit and create those memorable stories on the water that get told at parties and family functions for decades afterwards. That’s what the Underground is all about.”

Saltwater Underground is sponsored by Island X Lures, Savage Gear, Bubba, Shimano, Grundens, RonZ, Fisherman’s Supply and Grumpy’s Tackle.
