Best line for spinning, then baitcasting, monofilament, fluorocarbon or Braid?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

For spinning and baitcasting it's fluorocarbon because it's dense and it sinks. It means better action to the lures.

Hey Ike, any recommendations for fishing northeast rivers for smallmouth at below 40 degree temps?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I use a tube jig, it's really versatile. It can imitate baitfish or crawfish!

 

Corey Locker ‏@CoreyLocker

What do you do different to catch big fish over a limit? or vice versa

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I use a bigger bait. The theory is big bait = big bass and it's true. So I'll go to a big bait.

 

Richard Moschella ‏@RichieMoschella

What are your top 2 topwater baits to use

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

My favorite two are a popper and a walking bait. A Rapala X Pop and the walking is a Rapala Skitter Walk.

What's your favorite way to catch all those 5lb bass at Champlain

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I've caught big smallmouth with a giant spinnerbait-a 1-oz chartreuse spinnberbait with small chartreuse blades

 

Jason Mausteller ‏@Stretchs10

what knot do you tie with flurocarbon line

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I tie one knot, an improved clinch knot because there's less burn with that knot when you cinch it down.

 

Sam Rankin ‏@SamRankinFishin

Ever had a day on the water where nothing went as planned? how'd you bounce back from that?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

Yeah! Almost every day! I can't remember the last a day of fishing went as planned.

More stuff to go in your barn someday? Along with your velvet painting "All this from fishing"? :-)

 

David Ingle ‏@davidingle2

Favorite crankbait?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

Rapala DT series because you can easily figure out what depth of crankbait to throw

David Ingle ‏@davidingle2

I love my DT's. I got some of your old school colors

Rapala DT is Ike's favorite crankbait pic.twitter.com/Yf68kUVK

 Excited to see you fish the Classic - good luck! Do you think there will be a home lake advantage? How r u feeling

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

Thank you for the confidence! Winter style fits my fishing. Home lake advantage sometimes hurts more than helps.

 

Ken Truffen ‏@KenTruffen

Do you throw spoons occasionally when competing? If so what kind?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I do throw spoons. I throw structure spoons, it's bigger concave-style, in the summer when they're off deep water. Or a more traditional, slab spoon when the fish are really deep & I need a vertical presentation, such as in winter.
