Hobbyist Fisherman Reels In TV Show Special

HARSEN’S ISLAND, Mich. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A fisherman hooked himself one whopper of a fish tale by becoming the winner of the “Win Your Own Fishing Show Contest.”

Joel Piatek, a sales account executive from Harsen’s Island, Michigan, is the winner of The Outdoor Channel’s contest which will set him up with a one-episode TV fishing special.

Piatek’s proposal and audition was put up to a vote on the internet, and he figures he wowed voters with his proposal to highlight what he calls “the fresh water triple crown of Lake St. Clair.”

He plans to showcase the walleye, musky and bass that live in the lake.

Piatek says, “You rarely see a fishing show of someone targeting three different species.”

Since winning, he says he’s received congratulatory phone calls and messages from family and friends, all whom want to star on the show with him.

In his words, “Every one of my closest friends plan to be in it.”

The episode is expected to air sometime this August.
