Outdoor Channel will be observing the holiday with a Memorial Day Marathon of Duck Dynasty on Monday, May 30 beginning at 7 p.m. ET. With six consecutive hours of Duck Dynasty, viewers will revel in all of the Robertson duckmen shenanigans. From surprise vacations, to luxurious duck blinds, to down and dirty camping, this marathon highlights an entertaining family that remain true to themselves while keeping the outdoor lifestyle as their foundation.

Extending the holiday weekend, World Fishing Network will air six back-to-back episodes of Grand Slam Fishing on Tuesday, May 31 beginning at 6 p.m. ET.
