LAST CHANCE - ENTRY ENDS APRIL 30th

HNL Smallie-Fest Sweepstakes

The smallmouth bite on our home water, Lake St. Clair is absolutely insane, especially during the early weeks of June. We are stoked that BoatU.S. Angler has provided us the opportunity to take one lucky winner on, what is most likely to be, an indisputable brown bass EXTRAVAGANZA! In addition, our guest will appear on an episode of Hook n' Look, broadcasted nationally on Outdoor Channel. All you need to be eligible is a valid BoatU.S Angler membership. BoatU.S. Angler is the fishing division of BoatU.S. - the oldest and largest association of boaters and anglers. So if you're not a current member, sign up now for a chance to accompany the Hook n' Look crew in June. Join today!

Danny Visits Outdoor Channel Headquarters
Danny Visits Outdoor Channel
Outdoor Channel Master Control On a recent trip to the west coast, Danny Stricker (Hook n' Look Videographer and Technical Adviser) was pleasantly surprised to learn that the Outdoor Channel Corporate Offices were based in Temecula California where he was to reside for a few days. After realizing that his hotel was only a short block away, he couldn't help but grasp the opportunity to stop in and witness where the "magic" happens.

Danny exclaimed in gratitude, "I need to thank Brian Hamada, Quality Control Manager for Outdoor Channel for taking the time to show me around the facility and personally introduce me to everyone that takes part in making sure the Hook n' Look program broadcasts flawlessly." He continued, "This was an amazing trip for me. I literally felt like a star when I walked through the building.  Each and every employee I was introduced to would immediately follow up their friendly handshake by imitating our Hook n' Look sign off. You know... "Hook...n'... Look."
The most fascinating part of the tour for this inquisitive techy, was observing the Master Control room. Once all the quality control and closed captioning is done the final show edits are placed on a server, awaiting broadcast. The Master Control is where the television shows ultimately get sent out on the airwaves. "Very Cool", Danny asserted!
