Mike Iaconelli for Bass University to talk to you about something that stays in his boat all the time. Whether it’s a club tournament, a BASS Open, MLF Bass Pro Tour event or even The Bassmaster Classic, this secret tackle box is on Ike’s boat. This one tackle box is labelled “The Panic Box”. It’s the panic box because it’s full of go-to lures & baits that work when nothing else will catch bass. When you’ve fished for hours and you’re not catching fish, and you want to catch fish, but the fish won’t bite. It’s time to open this box full of lures that catch bass in tough conditions: clear water, cold fronts, fishing pressure.

The tackle box is full of finesse baits like inline spinners, small jerkbaits & grubs. Learn how to catch bass when fishing is tough. Learn about all the baits to catch fish in tough conditions in the full 20+ minute video available to PRO subscribers at
