Iaconelli announces the October 29th, 2017 Ike Live Bass Fishing Talk Show Spooktacular, be sure to tune in for that, as the entire cast will be in-costume for halloween. Iaconelli and Pete talk about FLW Tour angler and Elite Series rookie Mark Daniels Jr. (MDJ) and his recent bass fishing class Master the Rat-L-Trap - MDJ. MDJ is known as being a Rat-L-Trap guy, but, as you'll see in the class, he's really an ambassador for the entire Bill Lewis Brand. Mike & Pete talk about some of the tips, tricks & techniques that MDJ shares in his videos that will help you catch more bass with lipless crankbaits. They share some of their own experiences & retrieves for fishing lipless crankbaits and dispell some myths about when and where to fish it. They answer some questions like: when to use a silent lipless crankbait, how to fire up a school of bass that stop biting, clearing grass and junk off your bait, what about using snaps for chaning baits fast, and is there ever too much bait around to throw a rat-l-trap?
