When is a good time to fish ledges and what lures do you like using when fishing them?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

During two extremes, winter and summer. Deep diving crankbait more in summer, really big football jig more in winter.

Ike, you are my hero. Can you offer some advice for winter fishing on a budget? What are the essentials?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

Use a grub! It's an easy technique to fish and it catches the heck out of winter fish!

What do you think about pure fishing getting rid of legends who have created some of the havoc products.

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I'm sad to see those guys go because they're my heroes, too. Sometimes it's the reality of the business.

What is your favorite way to fish Gunnersville in the early spring and what baits. Thanks you are my favorite!

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I fish in front of the spawning flats & target early season grass. Use a lipless crankbait & a vibrations jig.

Hey Mike, I live right near the St.johns river. What do you usually like to throw when your on the St.johns?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

If I had one bait to pick, it would be a Texas-rigged junebug straight-tail worm. It catches fish no matter what.

How do you feel about college fishing? Any advice for a college angler that wants to make it as a full time pro

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I think college fishing is amazing! I wish they had had it when I was in college, it is an important step.

 

Matt Wheeler ‏@MattWheeler97

What hook do you use when flippin the Devil Spear?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I use an oversize flippin' hook. I helped create that bait to fit an oversize hook 5/0 VMC heavy duty flipping hook

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

Fish as much as possible, learn all baits and techniques. Get a degree in something that relates to the fishing industry - marketing, pr, business!

Bass on Champlain or trout in the Poconos?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

They're real close, but I'd go with bass in Champlain.

TheFishingRadar.com ‏@thefishingradar

I'm sure @VTbasser would agree

 

David Garren ‏@garrendavid

What advice do you have on getting sponsorships

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

It's all about one thing: If you can help a company sell more products, you can get sponsors.

David Garren ‏@garrendavid

Thanks for the reply mike, I hope you can answer my other questions, I know your a busy man if you cant. Good luck this year

 

Joe Dixie ‏@jdixie3

When did you realize you had what it takes to make it to the pros?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

The first year I turned pro (1999) I won the 2nd event and that was a turning point for me! I realized I could hang.

 

Casey Kmiecik ‏@CaseyKmiecik

How big was the bedding fish I watched u fish for for 2 hours on Green Bay day 1 of the tourney?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

I never ended up catching that 4-pounder. It would've been a game changer! Thanks for bringing up bad memories!

 

Kevin Elliott ‏@Kevin_Ryan11

What's your favorite lure/line for cold and clear water this time of year Mike?

Mike Iaconelli ‏@mike_Iaconelli

Fluoro because it's invisible and a drop shot with a small plastic work would be good for deep clear, cold water 

Kevin Elliott ‏@Kevin_Ryan11

Thanks Ike ill try it out this weekend!
