Some of the best fishing around was captured during the production of the new Eastlink TV program Fish On! as local fishermen rose to the challenge to see who could catch the biggest fish on northern Ontario lakes.

This fall, Eastlink TV introduces a number of new programs like Fish On!, Sunday Night Special Documentaries, and Night Lights Astronomy. The fall line-up also welcomes back the old favourites, like Wolves Hockey, Mayor and the City and PlayScience.

“We are so excited to have this new show that highlights the best of fishing in northern Ontario,” said Eastlink TV’S Fish On! Producer, Neil White. “With local fishermen on local lakes, anyone who fishes for walleye is sure to learn something new about the sport. And the competitive fishing on the show means there’s never a dull moment.”

Eastlink TV’s Fish On! premieres on Oct. 15 and can be seen throughout each week – please check local listings.
