The genesis of the KoB TV concept was to establish a home for premium digital video content to promote our key pro anglers, our brands and the fishing lifestyle we’re all so passionate about.
From the legacy pro team journal series—which showcases our top pros sharing tactics and techniques while fishing a variety of locations and seasons throughout the U.S.; to the more intimate, “behind the curtain” viewpoint offered by the Kings of Bass series—the goal was to offer both educational content & entertainment via premium video content.
2022 was the birth of KoB TV—and produced over 1.2 million views within the first 9 months. For 2023, we are redoubling our efforts to continue the momentum behind the growth of KoB TV—with exciting new content & a focus on continued evolution both in the types of content offered—as well as the quality of the experience overall.
Since its inception in 2003, Pro Team Journal has been a household staple in fishing television—putting the viewer “on the water” with top pro anglers.
Featuring some of the top names in angling—PTJ’s path forward is to provide the viewer insights into what drives our team of top pros—and strikes a balance delivering content that both entertains & informs— allowing the viewer to learn from a team of among the most reputable anglers in the game.
Taking place on some of the most historic bass factories in the us, the PTJ series aims to educate viewers with timely, seasonally-based episodes focusing on specific lures and techniques.
Pro Team Journal is where you learn how the pros get it done! We follow anglers around the country as they chase the next big catch with Strike King baits. One of the most popular fishing shows around, PTJ has been airing and streaming for years. Catch it on a sports channel or online to see Strike King pros like Mark Zona, Bill McDonald, Todd Castledine, and more fish their hearts out.
