Second Season Of Major League Fishing’s General Tire Team Series Set To Premiere On Outdoor Channel

Benton, KY – The Outdoor Channel and Major League Fishing (MLF) are gifting fans an early present this holiday season. With the first two-hour episode of Season 2 of the Major League Fishing’s (MLF) General Tire Team Series set to premiere on Saturday, Jan. 6, at 2 p.m. ET, on Outdoor Channel, an early sneak peek of that episode can be viewed right now at the Outdoor Channel YouTube channel.

The General Tire Team Series showcases the superstars from the Bass Pro Tour competing as teams across four events for hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash payouts. Each episode features nine MLF pro anglers competing as three, three-man teams. The anglers on each team wear wireless earpieces, which provide constant communication with their teammates. This communication allows each team to work together and strategize in real time on the water, shifting baits, techniques and areas as needed.

The 2024 General Tire Team Series premiere will feature three teams visiting Muskegon and Bear Lakes in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The anglers do not learn where they are competing until they arrive to the launch ramp each morning of competition. The full list of anglers competing can be found at MajorLeagueFishing.com.
