Ike is here to tell you that selecting the right trailer can be just as important as selecting the right bait. In this video, Iaconelli starts with a seasonal approach to selecting trailers based on action and shares some of his favorite Berkley trailers. Later in the video, Iaconelli talks about selecting the right color to go with the water conditions and lastly, he talks about how to rig the trailer.
