Mike “Ike” Iaconelli – In It To Win It
Bass fishing icon Mike “Ike” Iaconelli has put together an incredible professional bass fishing career that spans nearly two decades and includes more than 200 tournament appearances. And it’s far from over. At age 44, midway through the 2016 Bassmaster Elite season, he’s fishing as strong as ever.
Highlights of Ike’s run include nearly 150 money finishes, 100 top twenties and eight victories. He also holds the distinction of being the only angler to have won the Bassmaster Classic, Angler of the Year title and B.A.S.S. Nation Championship.
We asked the tireless competitor what fuels his high-octane pursuit of success, as well as his goals for the future and what it’s like crisscrossing the continent as a touring pro.
