(BPRW) Pursuit Channel Hooks Captain Rick Murphy for 2017 Season

(Black PR Wire) Miami, FL – Sportsman’s Adventures with Captain Rick Murphy, saltwater’s prestigious fishing show, is BACK with an all-new season.

The #1 rated fishing show premiers on the Pursuit Channel beginning January 2017.  Catch the show four times a week— January through June — Sundays, 7:30 p.m.; Tuesdays, 6 p.m.; Thursdays, 9:30 a.m. and Saturdays at 6:30 a.m.

Each 30-minute segment highlights a variety of fishing styles and sought-after species.  Sportsman’s Adventures with Captain Rick Murphy first aired in 1994. “With Rick’s knowledge and sense of humor, expect a high-energy sports fishing experience which includes personal fishing tips and the latest trends,” said Kathy Murphy, Vice President and Executive Producer with Sportsman’s Adventures Productions.

A South Florida resident his entire life, Rick Murphy spent his childhood fishing and hunting. He became a licensed captain and earned his reputation as a fishing expert in the waters of Biscayne Bay, Everglades National Park and the Florida Keys. Rick is one of only two fishing guides to ever win the four major Tarpon fly fishing championships. Captain Murphy has crossed saltwater boundaries to win tournaments and Angler of the Year honors in the ESPN and Florida Pro Redfish Tournaments. He’s reeled in plenty of wins in the South Florida Sailfish Circuit as well.

“I see myself as an ambassador to the fishing community. I look forward to sharing my knowledge (and secrets) about fishing. Fishing is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and encourage conservation.  Promoting the outdoor community is what the Pursuit Channel is all about,” said Captain Murphy.
