A new episode of Seaguar’s Extreme Kayak Fishing Challenge airs tomorrow at 1:30 EST on NBC Sports.
Jim Sammons is hooking up with Dr. Fish, Jeff Pierce, from Mustad Hooks to target the huge Yellowfin Tuna that inhabit the waters off the coast of Louisiana, near the oil platforms and behind the trawling shrimp boats.
