Local McClelland takes his place at the head of the Table

8T3D9118-1BRANSON, Mo. — Mike McClelland, an Ozarks lakes angler since he was 8 years old, took his time this week before he stepped into the limelight in the April 3-6 A.R.E. Truck Caps Bassmaster Elite at Table Rock Lake.

After the first day of competition, the Bassmaster Elite Series pro from Bella Vista, Ark., was in 12th place. In Friday’s second round, McClelland found surer footing — and a better size of bass. He pushed up into fourth place. <a href="http://www.bassmaster.com/news/seat-reserved"

How Pro Angler Mike McClelland prepares for a Tournament ~ Part 3

In Parts 1 and 2, professional angler Mike McClelland of Bella Vista, Arkansas explained many things he does to prepare for an event…changing and stretching line, identifying productive baits, changing hooks and more. In Part 3 of 3, McClelland takes it one step further by downsizing his gear into two or three small “grab boxes” and “day bags” containing what worked for him in practice so that he can easily access everything he needs to use during the tournament. By doing this, Mike doesn’t have to dig through his full boatload of gear to find something. He just works out of the small day bags he builds for each day of the event.
