The Ike Foundation: Take A Kid Fishing


Name: Mike Iaconelli  
 
Describe your profession: I fish professionally. When I say that, most people think of commercial fishing like what you see on Nat Geo. But I’m a bass tournament angler. My job really has two parts. The first is actually competing in bass tournaments all across the country. Like golf or tennis, I have to compete against other top-ranked professionals in the world. The second part of my job is representing and promoting various brands and the products they produce.

What social causes are most important to you?
I have a few, but youth fishing and fishing awareness are my top two.
