ONE-BOAT NETWORK™ CHALLENGE

You’ve never seen a fishing show like this. We took eight competitors from around the U.S. to Lake El Salto, Mexico, and armed them with the world’s most advanced fishing system, the One-Boat Network™ from Minn Kota® and Humminbird®, for a chance to win $10,000 for their fishing charity of choice. Legends will be born and secrets will be revealed. Find all four episodes of the action-packed first season below.

Episode 1: Opening Ceremonies

Eight strangers find themselves at Lake El Salto, Mexico. Hailing from different corners of the U.S., with diverse backgrounds and all levels of fishing experience, they quickly learn they’ve got at least one thing in common: a passion for competition. Watch them battle using One-Boat Network technologies to see which team can catch the most fish. The losers get a rude awakening.

Episode 2: Go Time

It’s time to get serious. The day begins with a race to see who can catch the first fish using Spot-Lock™ and their Minn Kota Ultrex™ trolling motor. One team gains immunity for the day and meets a surprise guest back at Angler’s Inn. The other three teams compete to see who can catch the three biggest fish. In a tense weigh-in ceremony, we learn which team is the first to go home.

Episode 3: Uncharted Territory

Our host has gone missing. He’s left a note alerting the competitors to his whereabouts on an island where he’s been fishing with Chris Zaldain. The teams must catch a fish and bring it to Zaldain, who will then give them some valuable intel. Next, the teams must use their AutoChart® Live map on their SOLIX® fish finder to catch the most fish. In a down-to-the-wire finish, the team with the least number of fish is eliminated.

Episode 4: The Big One

This is it: the moment we’ve been waiting for. Our two final teams get an early surprise when a bass fishing legend and another special guest show up for the day’s first challenge – a classic battle of who can catch the three biggest fish. The victor earns a time advantage for the mother of all challenges: a treasure hunt. Guided by a series of clues, the teams race to complete their mission using a full arsenal of One-Boat Network technologies.
