Justin Lucas Ike Live! - May 11Pittsgrove, NJ, May 7, 2015 – Justin Lucas, winner of the Bassmaster Elite Sacramento River tournament last week, joins Mike Iaconelli for Ike Live!, Monday, May 11 at 8:00 pm ET, live-streaming from MikeIaconelli.com. The usual informal chat-fest with fans follows at 9:30, with Mike and co-host Pete Gluszek offering fishing tips and answering questions from fans who phone or tweet.

Lucas, whom some call the “Cal-a-bama Kid” because he moved from California to Alabama to fish professionally, joined the Elite Series in 2014. He took home the Sacramento River trophy with an 82-14 bag, his first Elite Series win, just days after his 29th birthday. He’ll chat with Mike about his win and they’ll dissect both the Sacramento River and Lake Havasu tournaments.

About Mike “Ike” Iaconelli
A South Philadelphia native now living in South Jersey, Mike Iaconelli fell in love with fishing at his grandfather’s side in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. He began fishing in tournaments after high school, joined the pro-am circuit in 1992 and turned pro in 2000. In 2003, he won the Bassmaster Classic. To date, he has won Bassmaster Elite, Classic, and Open championships, including the Bassmaster Elite on the Delaware River in August 2014, and earned over $2 MM in prize money.

He and wife Becky run The Ike Foundation, which provides fishing equipment to youth fishing clubs to “get kids fishing.” In addition, he and fellow fishing champ Pete Gluszek run The Bass University, which offers intense 2-day fishing classes that bring avid amateurs and professional fishermen together.
