Daily Limit: Honorary Aussie
From Bassmaster.com – Article Mike Suchan
Mike McClelland picked up a good number of fans Friday — basically every Australian who follows bass fishing.
Carl Jocumsen was the man in need on Day 2 of the Bassmaster Elite at Bull Shoals/Norfork, and McClelland rode in and saved the Aussie’s tournament. Jocumsen damaged his prop and needed McClelland’s help getting his 17 pounds to the scales.
The sportsmanship of giving Jocumsen a lift to the weigh-in was noticed and commended by throngs of McClelland’s new mates, who immediately and repeatedly showed their appreciation. A post on McClelland’s Facebook page quickly accumulated 400 likes and around 100 comments, many from Down Under.
“You could very easily just kept going but you did the Aussie thing and helped a mate and saved Carl’s tournament. You’ve gained the admiration of a nation overnight,” wrote Ben Norris from Brisbane, Australia.
