How many tattoos do you have, and what's your fav one?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I have on either arm arm, one on my ribcage, and a huge one on my back. The one on my back is my favorite. It's not finished after 6 years & 50-60 hours. I got the bass jumping on my right arm after winning the 99 Nation Champ.

I think these new sonars are taking away from the strengths anglers had, going deep when you know not all fish are deep.

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

That's a great point. Sonar is so advanced, but it will never replace your natural instincts.

Being in the army and a college student.. I have limited time, tips on how to get the big fish in tournaments?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

Get a big jig and throw it in the deepest cover you can find! Big fish are always in thick cover or deep.

Corey Locker ‏@CoreyLocker

Thanks! i usually throw jigs. when in doubt i will drag the jig.

 

Steve Buck ‏@SBuck88

Do you have any tournaments close to the Midwest? Would love to come see you fish in person or even fish with u!

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I think the closet is the Bassmaster Classic in Tulsa or the Elite event at Lake St. Clair. Come out! Jump in my boat!

Does the length ones mustache translate to fishing success?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

Absolutely! I like to change my facial hair like I change lure colors. You gotta keep giving the fish a fresh look!

Did Hackney ever give u that spanking?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

No, he didn't.

'If that was my kid I'd give him a Spanking''LOL

What's the best hat for fishing in late winter in Alabama?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

It's called a lumberjack! A woolly with long ear flaps. That would be my choice for fishing in AL in the winter.

 

Craig Brown ‏@craigb20

Go to pre-spawn bait?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

Suspending jerkbait on secondary points, real good pattern for all over the country.

 

Josh Wilson ‏@vabassinbill

What's your favorite soft plastic to flip on beds?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

It's a bait by Berkley Havoc called Devil's Spear. I would use straight white!

Josh Wilson ‏@vabassinbill

Awesome, thanks man. Great meeting you at the Potomac in June of '11. Hope to see you there or SML soon!

dominic turcott ‏@Dturcott27

The devil spear does work with that dealy tail action!!

Josh Wilson ‏@vabassinbill

Awesome, I love the devil spear. Thanks guys! #basschat rocks!

 

Bobby Sweiderk ‏@Bigggg_Poppa

What kind of jerkbaits would work best in deep stained water?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

In really heavily stained water, I wouldn't use a jerkbait. It's strongest in clearer water. If it's lightly stained, use a bright color to help attract the fish. Down Deep Husky Jerk by Rapala in clown color

When will Berkley come out with spinnerbaits or chatterbaits?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I don't know the answer to that, but I've been using Molix spinnerbaits and chatterbaits. They're an Italian company
