Pittsgrove, NJ, September 5, 2014. Pro Angler Mike Iaconelli welcomes Greg Hackney and Bryan Bickell to Ike Live!, Tuesday, September 9, at 9:00 pm ET live-streaming from www.MikeIaconelli.com.
Hackney, the winner of the FLW Tour in June and the A.R.E. Truck Caps Bassmaster Elite at Cayuga in August, is the front runner in the Toyota Tundra Angler of the Year Championship. Bickell, a left winger for the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks, is the passionate angler who took his team’s Stanley Cup fishing to celebrate last year’s championship win.
Hackney’s excitement over his spectacular year and his anticipation of the AOY Championship later this month are topics Mike plans to explore. He’ll also probe Bickell’s thoughts on the demands, pressures and thrills of professional sports—whether it be fishing or hockey. In addition, Mike and his posse of friends, including Pro Angler Pete Gulszek, will answer fishing questions from fans who call-in and tweet.
