What do you do when the one and only Mike Iaconelli, aka Ike, hits you up to go fishing?

You put him on some Gator Trout!

We took him out to fish some docks and had just one rule: no live bait.

It was an awesome morning with a ton of different species, including trout, snook, redfish, sheepshead, and even some grouper!

Check out the video from Mike’s YouTube channel below.

Great video!! Ike has been my favorite for years and I’m glad you got him to fish with you. His enthusiasm is contagious, and brings a smile to anyone’s face that will watch it for what it is. A fishing video. Chill out, people. How many of us had the “flu” early this year and still went to work, school, etc. Now you guys just need to get jeremy wade…….

I can’t begin to express my level of dis-belief. This video starts out with him being sick, moves to his apartment’s elevator where he comments about pressing the Down button and then commenting about how they gave it to him so he didn’t care about giving it to others. Also, there was high-fiving and close arm around shoulder posing with a fish. Are you NUTS!!! Wake up! This shit is DEADLY! In this period of people dying from the coronavirus I was shocked to see not only his disrespect for others but also Salt Strong in posting this video.I love you guys but you need to understand that your behaviour influences the behaviour of your members and this video makes it seem perfectly OK to completely disregard the advice of health experts. You need to follow up with a “Don’t do this” video immediately.

Joe, His attitude in the elevator was that it was contagious and he just didn’t care. He said “I just infected everybody who is going to touch the Down button in this elevator. They did it to me…paybacks!” It was not fun; It was disgusting to hear on any date in time; not just during the coronavirus. Because he said “They did it to me…” he obviously did not think it was food-related.
