Pittsgrove, NJ, January 11, 2016. Pro Angler Mike Iaconelli “Going Ike,” a series of short films, each featuring a day-in-the-life fishing escapade of Mike Iaconelli and his fellow anglers, debuts Friday, January 15 at 3 PM ET on MikeIaconelli.com and YouTube.com/Going_Ike.
“Going Ike, captures the real story of a day’s fishing adventure. The travel to the location, the excitement of the first cast and fish catch and the disappointment and heartbreak of a lost fish” said Iaconelli. “If you were a fan of my old TV show City Limits, then you’re going to LOVE this new film series!”
Each short film crams a full day of fishing action, fun and excitement into a five to ten minute video. Fishing venues and themes include the unlikely, the unusual, and the unheard of, from fishing in urban Central Park, to secret hidden spots in the country, and everything in between.
In addition, Going Ike was filmed and produced by a collective of three professional film makers, including: C1 Films with Frankie Marion, 496 Films with Hunter Shryrock, and Illustrado Films with Vince “Stizo” Wasseluk and Ray “Stay Nice” Quijano.
