Mike McClelland has worked his way back down the White River arm of the lake to Kimberling City, near where he started this morning. The clock is ticking louder by the second. At 2:34 he said he figures he's got "about 14 minutes" left to fish before he heads back to the check in site at Table Rock State Park.
McClelland hasn't gone long between fish catches today. He's added a couple more in the last half-hour. But he has caught only one fish that's helped him since he landed that 2 1/2 pounderat 11 o'clock this morning. It was his fifth fish. McClelland said then, "My biggest fish of the day. Hopefully it will be my smallest at the end of the day."
