Fishing show puts spotlight on Pensacola
City Limits Fishing is a six-episode series that follows professional angler Mike "Ike" Iaconelli -- the 2003 Bassmaster Classic winner, 2006 BASS Angler of the Year and runner-up in the 2009 Bassmaster Classic -- as he visits some of America's best urban fishing areas and shows city dwellers that they don't need to travel far to catch their limit of fish.
In each episode of City Limits Fishing, Iaconelli is accompanied by a professional angler or captain as they face the challenge of catching a limit of fish within the boundaries of some of the country's greatest cities.
The 2011 series consists of shows in Cleveland, St. Louis, Austin, Charleston, Pensacola and Minneapolis. The Pensacola show was shot in mid-November with captain Chris Phillips and will air at 8 p.m. Friday on the Versus Network (Channel 42 Cox Cable).
"It's been a blast filming these shows for the past four years," said Iaconelli. "It's a great way to keep fishing competitively even after the regular tour season ends. Not only do I get to go to great places and fish for lots of different species, but I also get to meet some great people in the process."
Iaconelli and Phillips spent the day searching Pensacola Bay for red snapper, gag grouper and bull redfish. The day started off badly with a wave crashing over the bow and damaging a camera, but they regained composure and put a hurting on the fish.
"When they initially called me about shooting a show, they were trying to decide between Biloxi, Mobile and Pensacola, and were looking to catch bull redfish," Phillips said. "I quickly mentioned to the producer that I thought our inshore snapper and grouper fishery would make an excellent show, and before I knew it, we had it scheduled."
Doug Bunze, producer of City Limits Fishing, is a resident of the Florida Panhandle. "Shooting a show in Pensacola will bring a tremendous amount of national exposure for both the city and the great fishery we have here," said Bunze.
Also spotlighted on the show is H2O Cajun Asian Restaurant, located in the lobby of the Hilton Pensacola Beach Gulf Front. Chef Dan Dunn whipped up a memorable meal for Iaconelli and crew.
