Keeping his head in the game

Mike Iaconelli became emotional when he experienced mechanical issues during the day, but managed to rebound nicely with a big fish near the end of the day.

 

"You've got to keep your head in the game," he said. "No matter what, keep casting, keep fishing. It's frustrating to lose key time to those kinds of issues, but I'm managing it better. It would have devastated my day 10 or 15 years ago. Now I'm able to release my frustration and get on."
