Ultimate Match Fishing Season X features eight of the top professional bass anglers in the world competing head-to-head in the same boat in a single elimination tournament for the UMF Title Belt.

Two time defending UMF Champion Jacob Wheeler looks to make it three straight as he takes on fellow pros Wesley Strader, Bryan Thrift, Ott DeFoe, Larry Nixon, Dave Lefebre, Boyd Duckett and Brandon Palaniuk on legendary Chickamauga Lake in Dayton, Tennessee.

Veteran professional bass angler Joe Thomas returns to handle the play-by-play with Fish Fishburne providing the color commentary all under the watchful eye of UMF Referee Mark Randolph.

Also new for Season X, Ultimate Match Fishing along with Strike King will donate $500 each and every episode in the name of the angler who catches the match’s largest bass to the Catch a Dream Foundation to provide a once in a lifetime fishing opportunity for a child with a life threatening illness.
