PALM BAY, Fla. – The 2022 Wiley X Summit Cup Presented by B&W Trailer Hitches, filmed over six days in December on lakes surrounding the Palm Bay area, is set to premiere this Saturday, May 21, from 2-4 p.m. ET on the Outdoor Channel and on-demand on the MyOutdoorTV (MOTV) streaming app. The event showcases 24 of the top pro anglers in the world competing in the third Cup event of the 2022 season.

“The Space Coast is a fishing paradise with the availability of freshwater, saltwater, surf, and deep-sea fishing opportunities including new Headwaters Lake, the local trophy largemouth bass fishery. It’s unlike any other freshwater lake in the U.S.,” said Space Coast Office of Tourism Executive Director Peter Cranis. “We’re looking forward to watching the Summit Cup and can’t wait to see the winning catch.”

The first episode, set to premiere Saturday, features the eight anglers in Group 1 competing in their opening Elimination Round. Episode two features the eight anglers in Group 2; Episode three will feature the eight anglers in Group 3. The top six finishers from each group’s Elimination Round advance to the two-day Sudden Death Round – episodes four and five – where nine anglers compete each day and try to finish in the top four. The sixth and final episode will feature the final eight anglers competing in the Championship Round to catch the most weight that they can to be crowned the 2022 Summit Cup Champion.

  • Stephen Browning, Hot Springs, Ark.

Each episode is available for viewing on the MyOutdoorTV (MOTV) streaming app on the Monday morning following each episode’s Saturday premiere.

The 2022 Wiley X Summit Cup Presented by B&W Trailer Hitches features 24 MLF pro anglers visiting the Space Coast of Florida to compete on either Headwaters Lake, Kenansville Lake, Garcia Reservoir or Stick Marsh on each day of competition. The fisheries are unknown to the anglers – they do not learn where they are competing until they arrive to the launch ramp each morning of competition.
