Its IKE Week!

-Watch Mike Iaconelli’s entire brand new finesse fishing with soft plastics class on The Bass University TV:

Ike’s finesse fishing class is much more than just a hour-long seminar on how to fish finesse techniques; it is an incredible in-depth look at tough conditions and how to identify which zone of the water column that the bass are relating to. The equation that he uses to help him figure out the bass is “Zone + Action = BITES”.  Ike then offers advice on the specific techniques to use and catch these fish.  Mike will also cover the most effective tackle and equipment for each technique.
