Mcclelland Ends Weekend At Toledo Bend On A High Note

At a place where most anglers struggle, Mike McClelland fought his way through the first elimination to bring home a top-50 finish and a paycheck from the Evan Williams Bassmaster Elite Series event on the Toledo Bend Reservoir in Many.

The Cabela's/GEICO For Your Boat Elite angler managed a limit of fish at 10 pounds, 5 ounces Saturday after another slow start to his day. McClelland finished the tournament in the 45th position with a total of 41 pounds, 4 ounces.

"It was a really frustrating day because this week had gone relatively well and I had hardly lost any fish," McClelland said. "I felt like the fish were aggressively eating whatever I threw at them, but Saturday it wasn't the same.

"Unlike Friday, when I pulled up to my first area the shad spawn were there. I had about five bites in the first few minutes of fishing. A couple of those bites felt like really good fish but they just pulled off. As the day wore on and the sun came up, it seemed like the fish weren't eating the bait well. I saw a number of the fish I tried to catch Saturday. I'd roll them over and they'd jump and come off.

"I really should have had a pretty status quo day based on my first two days on Toledo Bend. I could have brought in 14 to 16 pounds again and it would have really helped out with the final finish."

Having to make a few adjustments to his original plan for this weekend in Many, McClelland was able to still recover and end the tournament on a high note.

"After my day Friday I wasn't concerned about only having one catch at 1 p.m. because the fish were really biting well Friday afternoon," McClelland said. "I was able to cover a lot of water today, and I tried to pinpoint some more key areas of grass. That way when they did start biting, I could fish back through that area.

"You never want to fall the final day but you also want to take some chances every now and then. Today was one of those days that I really couldn't take any chances because it's one of those deals where you don't want to get too far behind. That was the big thing for me, with only having one catch at 1 p.m. Saturday, it made me really bear down and finish the limit."
