Mike Iaconelli’s lure inventory matches his personality: wide-ranging and colorful. Yet, when asked what two lures he thinks anybody can catch a bass on, it didn’t take but seconds to pinpoint the answer.
GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. – Michael Iaconelli kept his feet planted firmly on the ground, even as he led the first three days of the Diet Mountain Dew Bassmaster Elite at Lake Guntersville. He told everyone who would listen that the fishing had gotten tougher for him each day, and he knew there was a chance it could all fall apart before he reached the finish line. But despite that realistic attitude, he said missing his chance for a wire-to-wire win still stung.
Michael Iaconelli struggled Saturday but managed a limit weighing 16 pounds, 7 ounces, to hold onto the lead heading into Sunday's final round.
Motivational words from wife Becky paid off on Day 1 at Guntersville.
Michael Iaconelli had a “magical day” in the Diet Mtn Dew Bassmaster Elite at Lake Guntersville, taking the opening-round lead with a weight of 28 pounds, 2 ounces.
