Frisch, Jensen announce launch of Fishing the Midwest Radio

Mike Frisch and Bob Jensen of Fishing the Midwest Television recently announced the creation of Fishing the Midwest Radio.

Fishing the Midwest Radio is an extension of the long-running and popular Fishing the Midwest Television Series. Fishing the Midwest Radio will run for 13 weeks beginning in the second week of May.

"Fishing the Midwest Radio will take us where television doesn't when it comes to spreading the word about hot-bites, techniques that are productive, and will also enable us to include some of the best anglers in the Midwest with their thoughts about what's happening in the fishing world right now," Frisch said in a release announcing the move.

The Fishing the Midwest TV series is going on more than two decades on the air.

"Fishing the Midwest Television has been very successful for 25 years because we appeal to the person who wants to get more enjoyment out of their fishing, and we hope and believe that Fishing the Midwest Radio will do the same," Jensen said in the release. "We try to keep our fishing pretty simple, yet still provide good ideas for catching more fish".

Fishing the Midwest Radio will be available on radio stations across Minnesota, South Dakota, and Iowa. Go to for station and time information. Fishing the Midwest Radio will also be available as a podcast on

In addition to hosting an award-winning television series, Jensen is a book author, produces a syndicated weekly fishing column, and an outdoor radio show. He was inducted into the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame in 2017.

Frisch is an outdoor writer, seminar speaker, fishing guide, and the founder of School of Fish. School of Fish is the leader in hands-on fishing instruction focusing on youth.
