We're off and running on the final day of he GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by DICK'S Sporting Goods. Photographer Jerry Cunningham and I will be following Mike Iaconelli today. He's in sixth place and will need a big day or a slip up by those ahead of him, but regardless of what happens, it's usually an entertaining day when you're following Ike.
Iaconelli has started on his offshore spot next to the dam. He told me this morning that he'll run this pattern, fishing a couple of spots near the dam and another area closer to the takeoff, until h fish dictate otherwise. If he isn't catching the fish he needs by 10 am, he'll make the run up north to the area he fished later yesterday.
