Try the hour rule. If its not working in an hour change something. Change bait style or color. If in another hour it is still not working, try going in a little shallower or out a little deeper!
New Abu Garcia Ike Series rods coming out at I-Cast (July) 2014! Fifteen models including 5 spinning, 5 graphite casting, and 5 glass cranking rods! They will be sick!
For pitching, I like a 7-7'2" MH action casting rod with a fast 7.1 or 8.1 low profile reel. The rod need backbone but must have some tip to preform the cast. For flipping, I like a 7'6" or 8' heavy action rod with the same reel. Again the rod must have a little tip.
Yes of course all of my books!!!!!!!!! (www.mikeiaconelli.com)
That a tuff situation. Ive been there for sure. The best bet is to blind cast all around the boat with some for of finesse plastic (soft stick bait or light drop shot). Make each cast 12-14 inches apart and be methodical! You will catch some blind bedders and cruisers!
Love Lake Conroe. I'd be targeting the staging areas out in front of places where you think they will spawn (pockets and creeks). Also all of the bridges and rip rap should be holding good fish!
Frog fishing has really evolved. My top choices have always been thick veg(like pads and duck weed). But Im starting to fish a frog a lot more under docks and overhanging brush!
Could be. Seems like it all lining up for it to have the potential. Id rather catch them coming or going but you have to do what it takes to win!
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! can I give you my wifes number so you can convince her?
Same advice to you and the rich guys who have 60K boats. Fish the moment. There is NO LUCK in fishing. Every bite is a piece to the puzzle. Take that information and build on it to figure out the patterns. Also always fish some form of change!
YES!!!! That is my old stomping grounds. Tafton PA. Fished that lake from 2 to 20 years old! Many great mem!

Only a few minutes left, the questions have been great so far, we'll get to a few more!
The key to swimbaits is to match the forage size. They are at their best in clearer water conditions. I also like to throw some pauses or jumps into my retrieve!
AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! No bannannas! Bad luck
You can get one of the shirts by watching Ike Live. Next show is April 14th at 8 PM. Just go to my web site www.mikeiaconelli.com to watch
Im going to have to go with Shaky head for numbers but texas rigged stick bait for size
I like a grub or finesse swimbait type trailer (like a Havoc Beat Shad). I also use a craw quite a bit!
