BASS Fishing Tournament Cayuga Lake with Mike Iaconelli Bass Fishing Video

Subscribe on YouTube


Mike Iaconelli recaps his top 12 finish on Cayuga Lake. The tournament yielded variable conditions with days 1 and 4 being cloudy and windy while the 2nd and 3rd day were sunny and calm. During the rougher days, Mike power fished to find his bites using a Molix spinnerbait through grass. When Ike found rock mixed with grass, he pitched a heavy creature bait - specifically a berkley havoc devil spear with a 3/4 ounce tungsten weight.

On the calmer days, Ike used finesse techniques to catch his limits. A drop shot rig utilizing a berkley havoc bottom hopper. The other technique that produced was fishing the berkley havoc back slide. He would add a neko weight to the tail of the bait and would fish it in holes and sandy spots between weed clumps.
