Mike "IKE" Iaconelli

Bass Elite Series professional angler

Iaconelli – known for his energy and enthusiasm on and off the water – is the only angler who has won all three of the biggest titles in professional bass fishing: the Bassmaster Classic (2003), Bassmaster Angler of the Year (2006) and the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship (1999). Iaconelli relies on Flambeau Outdoors and Zerust technology for tackle storage and other equipment as he pursues a full tournament schedule.

In addition to his professional fishing career and youth outreach efforts, Iaconelli works with The Bass University as well as hosting the Ike Live talk show and Going Ike fishing show. Iaconelli’s non-fishing hobbies include collecting old ink bottles, candy making, ghost hunting, Civil War reenactment, ham radio and macramé.
