Ike makes a move

All week Michael Iaconelli talked about four patterns all working for him. He is more confident than he’s ever been at a Classic of the potential he’s got to win another championship.

“I’ve got to put it all on the line to get as high on the scoreboard as I can today,” he told me this morning.

A confident Iaconelli with four patterns all working at once, including one for smallmouth, is a dangerous package.

This morning I shot this BASSCam that is typical Iaconelli. Before I shot it he had just about every tacklebox in the boat opened up. A pile of rods scattered across the front deck. Let him tell the rest. Today could be a big one for him.
