2014 A.R.E. Truck Caps Bassmaster Elite at Table Rock Lake
Table Rock Lake - Branson, MO, Apr 3 - 6, 2014

Crawfish don't jump up and down, says McClelland

Who talks the BIGGEST trash talk on the elite tour?

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

Kelly Jordon! He gets in my head before a tournament begins. I blamed him for my lack of success of Seminole. 

 

Lane Kindle ‏@LaneKindle  

On the day the wind didn't blow, did you still catch them on a mcstick? 

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

That was my toughest day! Only one of the bass I weighed I caught on a McStick. The fish were suspending deeper. 

 

JT ‏@jtflynlow  

Favorite bass lure/technique when you were a kid?

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

Spinnerbaits. I always had them with me. That led to my current sponsorship with War Eagle Spinnerbaits.

If you could fish with anyone who would it be? 

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

I would probably have to say it's a toss-up between @Kevin_VanDam and @AMartFishing

If you were not a professional fisherman... You would be ___________? 

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

If it was my choice, I would still be in the industry somehow. But, I would LOVE a career in baseball if not fishing! 

 

Breck Price ‏@breckprice  

What's your primary factor on how much time to give an area or spot before abandoning? Congrats on the win! 

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

It's internal instincts. I'm borderline on the bad side of spending too much time in an area. 

VanDam has complimented & scolded me for milking areas. You've got to go on your gut. 

Breck Price ‏@breckprice  

Thanks Mike. Good luck rest of the way!

 

Lane Kindle ‏@LaneKindle  

I really thought that the day with high skies and no wind would flip the whole tournament around. It didn't. Why? 

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

I think it was my knowledge of the lake & what the fish would do in those circumstances. I fished when I could find a breeze, so understanding what the fish would do was to my benefit & turned out to be the best day. 

 

Bassmaster ‏@BASS_nation  

Thank you for spending time with us today, @StratosMike! Good luck with the rest of your season. 

Mike McClelland ‏@StratosMike  

I want to thank B.A.S.S. again and all of the fans, sponsors and service crews! And, specifically my sponsors because they have helped me get through my career! I wouldn't be fishing at 46 without them!
