Pittsgrove, NJ, January 13, 2015. BASS Elite pro Joe Sancho and rookies Matt and Jordan Lee are guests of Pro Angler Mike Iaconelli and co-host Pete Gluszek on Ike Live!, Monday, January 26, 7:00 -10:00 pm ET, live-streaming at www.MikeIaconelli.com. Ike After Hours, a free-form discussion among fish heads who call or tweet Mike and the gang, follows at 10:00 – 11:00 pm ET.
In addition, Ish Monroe and Keith Poche are slated to call-in to talk about their recent altercation. The two came boat-to-boat and face-to-face at the start of the Southern Open at Lake Toho, Fla. They both landed in the water and on the front pages of the bass fishing websites. They will give their perspectives and reflections.
Note that the start time for the show is moved to 7:00 pm ET to provide time for all the guests.
Sancho completed his rookie year on the Bass Elite Pro circuit in August, after some 20 years of weekend tournament fishing—the first eleven years as a non-boater. A New York City electrician whose employer supported his 2014 Elite Series fishing schedule, Sancho is quickly learning the rigors of professional fishing.
Brothers Matt and Jordan Lee start their rookie years on the Elite Series Pro circuit this coming season. Matt, 25, earned his berth through the Southern Opens, while Jordan, 23, earned his through the Central Opens. Both men made names for themselves in the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series through Auburn University. In 2012, Matt beat Jordan in head-to-head competition to qualify for the 2013 Classic. The next year, Jordan qualified for the 2014 Classic, finishing in sixth place.
