The Delaware River Elite Series is set to kick off Thursday with Philadelphia and its towering skyline serving as the backdrop for the first Elite Series event on the historic waterway.

If the reports from pre-practice hold true, the Delaware could prove to be a very tough event. One angler who knows the river well is Elite Series veteran and New Jersey resident Mike Iaconelli.

BassFan has teamed up with Rapala to bring you a contest that puts the spotlight on Iaconelli, who needs a strong finish in his backyard to keep alive his hopes to earn a Bassmaster Classic berth.

We're looking for your guess as to what Iaconelli's final tournament weight will be at the Delaware. The person closest to his actual weight will win a prize pack from Rapala, including a hat, t-shirt and a lure assortment that included some of the baits and new colors that were just introduced at ICAST.

Use the contest app below to log your guess (you can sign in via Facebook or enter your e-mail address), then check back to throughout the coming days for continuing coverage of the Delaware River Elite Series.
