Professional Edge Fishing with the Ike Foundation
Professional Edge Fishing, a South Jersey marketing agency that represents multiple fishing brands, has partnered with The Ike Foundation for the past several years to get kids interested in fishing and other outdoor activities. The foundation was founded by professional bass angler Mike Iaconelli and his wife Becky — the president of Professional Edge Fishing — in 2014. It focuses on youth in areas where such activities are not readily available. Its mission is to help youth develop a love of the outdoors at an early age and teach them to appreciate the planet and its natural resources. The foundation has donated thousands of rods, reels, lures and tackle boxes to kids around the country. Professional Edge Fishing has raised $300,000 for the foundation and continues to plan special events such as celebrity fishing tournament where kids can fish with, and compete against, professionals.
