Short run to start

Knowing how Mike Iaconelli likes to move a lot, we're prepared to do some running around on Conroe today. But at least this morning's initial boat run was short. His first spot near the dam is about half a mile from takeoff. Iaconelli's gallery is 14 boats strong at the moment, plus two boats with local anglers who are fishing about 200 yards from here. The spectators are giving Ike plenty of room, and one even admonished the guys who are fishing to back off and give Iaconelli some room to move along the point he's fishing.
