In an ongoing effort to provide as much interaction between world-class anglers and fishing fans as possible, FLWOutdoors.com has announced the fourth installment of FLW Live Reel Chat. On Thursday, July 7, at 4 p.m. Central time (5 p.m. EDT), visitors to FLWOutdoors.com will get a chance to correspond directly with bass-fishing icon and larger-than-life personality Michael Iaconelli in a special live chat-room format.

Iaconelli, winner of the 2003 Bassmaster Classic and the 2005 FLW Tour’s Chevy Open, boasts five Classic appearances and nearly $800,000 in career earnings. Undoubtedly one of the most controversial and thought-provoking anglers on the tour, Iaconelli is also the author of his own book, “Fishing on the Edge.” The Woodbury Heights, N.J., native – arguably the best break dancer on the bass-fishing circuit today – has been fishing the FLW Tour since 2001.

During the chat, fishing fans will be able to talk directly to Iaconelli about his storied career, his recent FLW Tour victory on the Potomac River, his multiple Bassmaster Classic appearances or anything else that comes to mind. Beginning immediately, visitors to FLWOutdoors.com now have the added bonus of being able to log on today and submit questions early in order to have the first shot at getting their questions answered.
