What is your favorite color combination when using baits with skirts?. I.e.. Jig with a blk,Brn,gp..

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

Has been and will always be black and blue because it imitates a crawfish that molts its shell.

Dude! 1 rod, 1 bag from grocery store with "tackle", 1 pond...what rod, what's in the bag?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

My grocery bag is going to have a shaky head worm in it, 3/16 oz VMC rugby head, and green pumpkin 6-inch straight tail worm like a Berkley Havoc bottom hopper... and 7-foot medium action Abu Garcia spinning rod and 8-pound fluorocarbon line.

Any advice for a non-boater on bass fishing in the Philly/South NJ area from now to spring?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I fished as a nonboater for years and a finesse soft plastic always caught fish for me.

Vincent Kaulinis ‏@VKaulinis

Thanks Ike!! Good luck in the Classic!

 

jared ganz ‏@JaredGanz

A lot written bout cold front fishn but not much on those tuff high pres. Days. Were baro. Is real high. Whats your approach

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

Besides going deeper or thicker, I go to finesse fishing or the opposite, power fishing (bigger baits fished fast)

jared ganz ‏@JaredGanz

Good luck in the classic Ike!!!!!

Ask him how many practice days he has had on grand and how he feels about his classic chances.

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I've had 4 full practice days. I feel good about my chances. Cold weather fishing definitely fits my style.

Brandon ‏@bwilliams5599

Good luck man. I'll see you out there. Plan on following u around on day 1.

Give us 2 or 3 things to do so we don't get line twist on our spinning reels. Thanks.

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

1. When spooling the line, make sure line is coming off counter clockwise.2. never overfill your spinning reel. Leave an 1/8-inch exposed. 3. always use your hand to close the bail

What advice do you have for up and coming anglers to make it full time?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

Fish as much as possible, as many diff't types of water you can & learn every diff't bait/technique you can learn.

What is your favorite way/lure to catch them on the Potomac?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

Flipping grass is the #1 way to catch them on the Potomac. Devils Spear by Berkley is a good one to use

Which event do you feel you have the best chance of winning this year

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

All of 'em! No, I'd say it's one of the smallmouth venues-Thousand Islands. I've fished it a long time.

Shane Jewell ‏@JSJbassfishing

Maybe you will get one this year. Met u at a gas station at pickwick couple years back. Go get em

 

Nikko ‏@NikkoLeggett

Mike, what is your favorite jig trailer?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I use 3 types depending on the action. A doubletail grub, I throw a Havoc called The Deuce - lots of action!
