Two kids growing up on the barrier islands of Florida's Space Coast caught the addiction at an early age. In 1980, Blair Wiggins and Kevin McCabe began their daily fishing excursions before and after school (see image above). Kevin had moved from the north and referred to big fish as "monsters". Blair, born and raised in Florida, called them "biggans". As kids do, they combined the words to create what has become the hottest catch phrase in saltwater fishing. Now that’s a "Mogan"! Twenty years later, Blair, a professional fishing guide, and Kevin, an award winning television producer, reunited to create the next generation of outdoor television. Addictive Fishing has become the new standard for all other outdoors shows to be modeled after. The rockin’ theme music grabs viewers attention and the antics of the energized host keeps you strapped in for 30-minutes of entertaining, addicting saltwater television.
CAPTAIN BLAIR WIGGINS
aka "The Mogan Man"
Whether he is on the bow or the poling platform, Blair is more at home on a boat than on dry land. Capt. Blair Wiggins spent 12 years as a professional fishing guide before becoming a tournament angler and host of his own TV show. His lifetime of fishing experience paid off big in 2006 when he won the $100,000 FLW Redfish Series Championship. Blair continues to travel on the road promoting his Mogan Series line of Flats Blue fishing products and passing along his addiction.
aka "Mr. Producerman"
The man behind the console stringing clips together is Kevin McCabe. He graduated from University of South Florida with a TV production degree and worked for ESPN and NBC where he honed his skills that would later change the look and sound of outdoor television. Kevin used his innovative concept of adrenaline-driven, reality-based production to create his own "live" movie-style format. McCabe Productions (MPI) continues to spread their infectious format with the 15th season of Addictive Fishing.
