The MLF pros would prefer to be on the water, fishing. But the best bass anglers on the planet, like most Americans, have been sheltering at home to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Of course, that hasn’t stopped them from practicing their casting and nailing some impressive trick shots.
New Jersey’s Mike Iaconelli kicks the fun off with some impressive target practice casts, then Wesley Strader tries to one-up him by knocking the cap off of a Coca-Cola bottle. Randy Howell has some fun around his house showing off multiple trick shots using his family, a skateboard, and a basketball hoop, while the Lane brothers – Chris and Bobby – and Brent Chapman also get assists from their children as they show their skills.
South Carolina’s Britt Myers demonstrates some impressive accuracy, cracking an egg hanging from a bridge, while reigning Bass Pro Tour REDCREST Champion Edwin Evers flips a moving target attached to his truck. Gerald Spohrer shows off his precision, casting into a tiny drain at the top of his shed, while California angler Jared Lintner demonstrates a unique way to drink an ice-cold can of your favorite beverage. Fred “Boom Boom” Roumbanis also gets in on the fun, displaying picture-perfect MLF fish-landing form, hooking up with an enormous kicker “bass.”
Despite no tournament competition at this time, it’s good to see the MLF pros keeping their precision casting skills sharp.
