Panama City Beach Announces Third Season of “Chasin’ The Sun” Fishing Show

            PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla., November XX, 2017 – Visit Panama City Beach is proud to announce that the third season of its award-winning television series, “Chasin’ The Sun,” will premiere on Saturday, January 6, 2018, on Discovery Channel. “Chasin’ The Sun” is a fishing and coastal lifestyle television program that showcases the diverse angling, diving, and cultural opportunities found among the emerald green waters of Panama City Beach.

“Chasin’ The Sun” premiered in 2016 on Sportsman Channel with 13 original episodes, then moved to Destination America and NBC Sports Network for its second season. Both seasons were shot in Panama City Beach and featured popular species such as redfish, cobia, pompano, grouper, snapper, tarpon, and kingfish, just to name a few. Panama City Beach offers abundant opportunities for anglers of all skill levels from its picturesque piers and directly from the sugar-white sands of its 27 miles of pristine beachfront.

“We’re thrilled that ‘Chasin’ The Sun’ will be moving to the Discovery Channel’s new outdoor programming lineup for its third season,” says Visit Panama City Beach President and CEO Dan Rowe. “This means the show’s biggest audience yet can enjoy a glimpse of not just the thrilling fishing available in our waters, but the unique culture that makes our beaches such a special family destination.”

Capt. Justin Leake, a lifelong native of Panama City Beach, returns as host and will be joined this season by Capt. Travis Holeman, a nationally-known tournament angler, fishing guide and founder of Key West Angling charters. Leake and Holeman will be joined by special guests as they go fly fishing for tarpon, head offshore for grouper, target shallow water redfish from standup paddleboards and enjoy a taste of the coastal lifestyle.

Weekly episodes will air on Saturday mornings at 8 a.m. The Discovery Channel reaches nearly 100 million U.S. households. For more information on “Chasin’ The Sun,” please visit or stay connected via Facebook (@ChasinTheSunFishingShow), Instagram (@ChasinTheSunTV), and Youtube.
