Ike's warming up

We followed Mike Iaconelli down Grand lake to the mouth of Horse Creek, where he ran into what is possibly the best fan sign ever; a 4-foot tall, 25-foot wide banner hanging from a balcony that read "CATCH BASS HERE" with an arrow pointing toward the water. On a boathouse adjacent to that sign was another banner that read "We like Ike". As far as fan interaction and local involement, this is one of the best Bassmaster Classics I've had the pleasure of covering. Iaconelli has yet to register a bite.
