The momentum might be swinging in favor of Mike McClelland. The wind has come from nowwhere. It's gone from flat calm to gusts up to 14 mph from the south.
That's a good thing for McClelland and here's why. With the wind came a flock of gulls to feed on what likely are threadfin shad getting pushed toward the surface by the bass. McClelland responded by moving to the action.
That was a good idea. He now has a 3-pound spotted bass in the livewell, for 2 keepers.
The key to all of the above is wind-driven current. That stimulates bass feeding activity and the birds tipped off McClelland to the action.
