Ike in Bassmaster Top 12 for Fourth Straight Tournament
Mike Iaconelli, who is currently leading the Bassmaster Elite Series Angler of the Year points race, made his fourth consecutive top 12 Bassmaster tournament cut, including the Bassmaster Memorial. Ike is tied for 9th with 2 other anglers, and Dean Rojas (currently in 12th) is the only other angler in the top 5 in the AOY race.
Ike trails leader Mike McClelland by over 20 lbs. McClelland's lead over second place is nearly 12 lbs. Ike's most apparent opportunity on day 4 lies in putting more room between himself and Greg Hackney (finished 35th), John Crews (finished 42nd), and Steve Kennedy (finished 26th), who are all also currently in the running for the Bassmaster Elite Series Angler of the Year.
