Professional tournament bass fishing angler Mike "Ike" Iaconelli is here to talk about some fundamental items you want to bring when preparing for a fishing trip. Particularly new bass fishermen and women may not be sure how to best select items to carry. After all, when bank fishing, the more you bring, the more you have to move around as you go explore the area in search of fish. This video focuses on items, not tackle, per se, but items you'll often need when heading out for a day of fishing, "accessories", if you will. Iaconelli talks about things like: preparing for mother nature, protecting yourself from mother nature, essential tools, lure customization items and even food and drink. Ensure you have a great time on the water by being prepared and don't forget a small bag for keeping up with your trash.
