No Limits Podcast: Lunch Break at Lightsey's Okeechobee with Mike McClelland

OKEECHOBEE, Fla. – We took a little break from the action at Lake Okeechobee to connect with Blue Eye, Missouri pro Mike McClelland, one of the O.G.'s of Major League Fishing. In this podcast, McClelland talks about his resurgence after a tough 2019 season on the Bass Pro Tour, shares a few secrets about crankbait design, and gives some insight into the Ozark Mountains fisheries that he calls home.
