About The Show
Sportsman’s Journal features a couple concept, not previously seen on the Saturday morning lineup – Hosts Tyler and Sara Trampe are multi-species anglers traveling throughout the Midwest and Ontario, showcasing different seasons, locations, tactics and conditions that allow anglers to catch more fish. Sportsman’s Journal airs on Bally Sports North in the first quarter of every year and every episode can be viewed on Sportsman’s Journal TV YouTube channel. Both Sara and Tyler have been featured in numerous magazine articles throughout the Midwest and are active in the Seminar speaking circuit.
TYLER TRAMPE has been fishing his entire life and he brings life to the television world with his charismatic personality, intense knowledge on reading water and finding fish where others can’t. He has an educational background in wildlife management and countless hours spent on the water from guiding in Northern Wisconsin. Tyler has fine-tuned his skills on fishing high pressured, clear bodies of water where understanding finesse techniques are required to catch fish in these “tough” lakes. Considered by his peers as a fluent multi-species angler he is known for his ability to read difficult water and understand seasonal movements of fish on any type of fishery; which translates into tactics that lead to “more fish in the boat.”
A note from Tyler: “I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to make a living out of fishing! But I have worked very hard to get here and I want to have one of the best tv shows out there. I don’t ever want to get stagnant in the fact that having a show is good enough. I want Sportsman’s Journal to always be evolving in bringing current techniques, while providing an entertainment value, that helps you get the most out of your time on the water.”
SARA TRAMPE brings a unique aspect to the fishing television industry by not only being a recognized host but she is also an avid outdoorswoman with numerous hours on the water and in the field. Having Sara as a full-time co-host is a cutting-edge, unique feature of Sportsman’s Journal; with more and more women interested and getting involved in the outdoors Sportsman’s Journal is one of the only shows on the outdoor circuit with a permanent female host that is hands on learning and teaching fishing techniques. This unique quality has led to more female viewership and a much broader audience which communicates SJTV is for the entire family!
A note from Sara: “When we started fishing together, I found it challenging to find equipment that worked with my smaller build and upper body strength nor could I find clothing that I liked that was comfortable and geared towards being in the boat all day. In the past decade we have seen this market start to EXPLODE which is making it easier for women to find things that match our preferences and smaller builds but it is still not the norm. I want to make it slightly easier by showcasing products that have worked for me to allow other women to be able to spend more time fishing and less time frustrated.”
