Crawfish don't jump up and down, says McClelland

Who will you put on your fantasy fishing team for Toledo Bend? 

David Hunter Jones ‏@DavidHuntrJones  

Do your own homework.

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

I'd choose Todd Faircloth, Dean Rojas, Keith Combs, Jeff Kriet and Jared Lintner 

Spotmonkey ‏@sptmnky  

I got @AMartFishing, @theRandyHowell, @CliffCajunBaby, @ShawGrigsby, & @tboygnfishn #ToledoBend #Fantasy #Fishing

@StratosMike  biggest bass you’ve caught?

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

I caught it on Lake Amistad, but I didn't get an official weight. The guy I was with thought it was a 12-14 pound fish! 

 

David Hunter Jones ‏@DavidHuntrJones  

Mike, did you use the deep Spro McRip at all in your win? 

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

I did not use it in the tournament. The first day of practice I threw the bait & had some success but the deep fish were smaller. But as the week went on, the 115 and the 110 was where it was at.

 

JT ‏@jtflynlow  

Name one angler you admire on the elite tour for their fishing skills?

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

I gotta say Jeff Kriet because he finds them so quickly and so well using a multitude of methods.

What’s your best tip for fishing a jig?

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

99.9% of the time, keep your jig on the bottom. Not many crawfish jump off the bottom & yell "Eat me!" So the more natural you make your jig look, the more likely you'll catch fish.

It took 24 pounds to win our club tournament on Toledo Bend this weekend. Good luck and congrats on your win! 

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

Thank you, and I hope the fishing remains as good in 2 weeks as it is now! 

 

JT ‏@jtflynlow  

Favorite place to fish north of the Mason Dixon line?

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

I've always said Lake Champlain is one of my favorite places to just go fishing! 

JT ‏@jtflynlow  

Favorite bite/technique you look for right now?

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

If I could throw a stickbait 12 months a year, I would be hard pressed not to. The McStick is my fave for bass & trout. 

JT ‏@jtflynlow  

One body of water that has your number?

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

There's a few of them actually! One that has really thrown me for a loop is Lake Seminole. 

 

Wes May ‏@Wes_May  

Outside of Grand Lake, what would be your favorite lake to fish in Oklahoma and why? @BASS_nation

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

Probably Lake Eucha. It's fairly small and never very busy. It has good bass and crappie fishing.

 

David Hunter Jones ‏@DavidHuntrJones  

What's your all-time favorite food stop in the road? 

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

I hate to say this, but for consistency and for good service, I'd say @CrackerBarrel
