2014 Forrest Wood Cup about to kick off!

Teaser image: 

The 2014 Forrest Wood Cup kicks off in about 9 hours which means I'm about to hit the hay because I'll be out there on the water following 45 of America's best anglers all over 50,000-acre Lake Murray. Actually, I expect many of them to run up the rivers and creeks in search of enough shallow bass to win $500,000 and a world championship title over 4 days of fishing that promise to be more of a marathon than a sprint.

Stay with us all week at AnglersChannel.com for updates from the Cup and remember to catch the action on the Progressive Bass Wrap Up TV Show!

Michael Iaconelli hopped five feet down off the Bassmaster Elite Series stage, turned and hoisted his 55-pound winner’s trophy, then practically danced with it up through the roaring audience stacked on the concrete steps of the Great Stage of Penn’s Landing.
 
Moments before, he had told the crowd exactly what he was feeling as he won the Bassmaster Elite on the Delaware River.
 
“I won today, but not for me. I won for you guys,” said Iaconelli, Philly-born and raised in New Jersey.

This week on the Delaware River, Michael Iaconelli has been the prince of tides. Judging by the mass of fans pulling for him at the Bassmaster Elite Series event out of the City of Brotherly Love, he’s also the fishing prince of Philadelphia.
 
Saturday in the third of four rounds, Iaconelli not only repeated his Friday lead, he also banked 6 pounds, 9 ounces against his nearest challenger by reading and adjusting to the tides.

The crowd began to cheer and chant “Ike, Ike, Ike” even before Philadelphia-born Michael Iaconelli, now also a New Jersey fishing hero, took the stage Friday for the second weigh-in of the Bassmaster Elite on the Delaware River.
 
It was as if the boisterous Ike fans felt their voices could pull their hometown guy up from 21st place, almost 8 pounds behind first-day leader Boyd Duckett after the initial round Thursday.

So, do black bass live in the Delaware River?
 
Oh, boy, do they. Boyd Duckett showed how those bass can be caught when the four-day Bassmaster Elite Series event on the Delaware River kicked off Thursday out of Philadelphia for the first time in Bassmaster history.
