Mike consistently caught 4-5 lb. smallmouth to win the tournament, and a spot in the 2014 Bassmaster Classic at the Lake Erie Open. Firstly, Ike fished the dropshot with a larger profile bait, Ike used the Berkley Havoc Flat Dawg in green pumpkin candy, when cloudy and watermelon seed in sunny. Mike used 15lb Spiderwire Fluoro-Braid, which sinks for presentations like drop shots. Ike also used an Trilene Fluorocarbon 8lb. leader and 1/0 VMC Ike Approved Wacky Hook and VMC Tungsten Drop Shot Cylinder Weight. Ike fished this rig on a 6'9" Med Light Veritas Spinning Rod and Abu Garcia 20 size Revo Premier Reel. Mike's other bait was a Rapala Ike's Custom Ink Ike's Smash Color DT 14 Crankbait. Mike fished the crankbait on 7' Abu Garcia Winch Med Cranking Rod and Abu Garcia REVO Premier Generation 3 Casting Reel 6.4:1 Gear Ratio with 12lb. Berkley Trilene Fluorocarbon.
