Top anglers from around the U.S. will break down bodies of water they're highly familiar with in a new online show call "The Bucket List" that will be produced by The Bass University.
“I’ve been fortunate to travel the country to fish many of our nation’s best bass waters, but not everyone has that same opportunity,” said Bass University co-founder Mike Iaconelli. “The Bucket List series will give you fishery-specific information that would otherwise take a lifetime to accumulate. Believe me, I’ll be watching them to learn some lessons myself.”
The first episode will take place on Lake Champlain, on the New York/Vermont border, and the site of Iaconelli’s first professional win. He’ll be joined by his Bass University co-founder Pete Gluszek, another former Lake Champlain winner. The pair will revisit some of the spots where Ike caught his winning fish 20 years ago.
The next edition will be on Lake Chickamauga, one of the best trophy fisheries in the Southeast. The special guest will be Wesley Strader, who has a lifetime of experience there and a lot of tournament hardware to prove it.
“Until now, we’ve focused on proven fishing techniques and strategies with universal applications,” Gluszek said. “We’ll continue to provide that information in these episodes. However, we’ve had strong demand for fishery-specific content; our goal at BU is to give the fishermen what they want, and The Bucket List is the next step in that process.”
New episodes will be released every Wednesday. They are available in their entirety by subscribing to www.bassu.tv.
Also, in keeping with the need to balance the public’s needs for social distancing and feeding their fishing habit, due to the current situation involving COVID-19, The Bass University is currently offering $50 off annual subscriptions or 50 days free.
