Pittsgrove, NJ, March 24, 2016 – Edwin Evers, the 2016 Bassmaster Classic Champion, joins Mike Iaconelli on Ike Live!, presented by Mystery Tackle Box, on Saturday, March 26, at 7:00 p.m. ET, live-streaming from IkeLive.com.
Evers, a 10-time B.A.S.S. winner, 13-time Bassmaster Classic qualifier and 3-time runner-up for Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year honors, came from 6 lbs. behind on the third day with 29-3 bag—a giant catch by all definitions—to snatch the championship away from Jason Christie.
Evers talks with Ike about the strategy that brought him to the top of the leaderboard. Later in the show, Mike and co-host Pete Gluszek recap the St Johns River tournament and open the phones for discussion of the Maryland Division of Natural Resources restriction on tournament anglers “possessing” more than one fish over 15” from the Potomac and Upper Chesapeake.
