The Bass University Wants You to Live Your BUcket List Dreams

New original series puts America’s top pros on the waters they know best

Runnemede, N.J. – March 23, 2020 – Founded in 2009 by Mike Iaconelli and Pete Gluszek, The Bass University (BU) offers acclaimed bass fishing education programs in three formats: online, in the classroom, and on the water.  Now, with the new program, entitled “The Bucket List,” in which BU hosts visit America’s best bass fisheries to fish with the professional anglers who know those fisheries best.

Like other The Bass University comprehensive educational video instructional videos, The Bucket List will be streamed at

“I’ve been fortunate to travel the country to fish many of our nation’s best bass waters, but not everyone has that same opportunity,” said Bass University co-founder Mike Iaconelli. “The Bucket List series will give you fishery-specific information that would otherwise take a lifetime to accumulate. Believe me, I’ll be watching them to learn some lessons myself.”

 The first episode will take place on Lake Champlain, on the New York/Vermont border, and the site of Iaconelli’s first professional win. He’ll be joined by his Bass University co-founder Pete “The Dean” Gluszek; another former Lake Champlain winner.  The pair will revisit some of the spots where Ike caught his winning fish 20 years ago. Whether you fish there every weekend or you’re planning your personal “bucket list” trip, and you won’t want to miss the two episodes that will unveil many of the two pros’ hard-earned secrets.

 The next edition will be on Lake Chickamauga, one of the best trophy fisheries in the southeast. There we will pick the brain of legendary Tennessee angler Wesley Strader – who has a lifetime of experience there – and the tournament hardware to prove it.

 “Until now, we’ve focused on proven fishing techniques and strategies with universal applications,” Gluszek said. “We’ll continue to provide that information in these episodes. However, we’ve had strong demand for fishery specific content; our goal at BU is to give the fishermen what they want, and The Bucket List is the next step in that process.”

 New episodes will be released every Wednesday. They are available in their entirety by subscribing to

 Also, in keeping with the need to balance the public’s needs for Social Distancing and feeding their fishing habit, due to the current situation involving the COVID19 Coronavirus, The Bass University is currently offering $50 off annual subscriptions or 50 days free.  Now is the perfect time to homeschool with the bass university and be ready to go when the time comes.
