2013 Bassmaster Classic Grand Lake O' the Cherokees - Tulsa, OK, Feb 22 - 24, 2013

McClelland thawing out and jerkbaiting...duh

7:47 am CST, Feb 22, 2013 | By David Hunter Jones

After a bone-chilling 20-minute run, my boat driver Steve Meador and I are settled in on Mike McClelland. He's working  a jerkbait - presumably a Spro McStick, one of his own device - s-l-o-w-l-y around docks and rocky outcroppings. He's using 10-pound fluorocarbon, which as it drags line back through the guides is freezing up, which necessitates him dipping hid rod into the water every 60 secondds or so. No bites yet for the Arkansas pro.
