Dave Mercer before and after his weight loss (HANDOUT)

The star of a popular television fishing show is continuing his efforts to live a healthier lifestyle by participating in this year’s Manitoba Marathon.

Dave Mercer from “Facts of Fishing” lost 80 lbs. by taking the Subway Commit to Fit pledge and will be among the thousands of runners in Winnipeg on June 17.

Dave’s fishing program is broadcast nationally on the Outdoor Life Network. His fishing tips are seen over 250 times a week in every city across Canada. Dave continues his fun, outrageous and joking approach to fishing on the show while still giving helpful tips to today’s anglers.
