Mike McClelland joined the Stratos Boats pro staff, the company announced.

McClelland's move to the Stratos Pro Staff ensures that he will continue to fish from the 210 Elite. Previously manufactured under the Champion brand, the 210 will now be part of the three-model Stratos Champion Elite Series, a line of professional-level bass boats centered around performance-based designs.

"I couldn't be more excited," McClelland said in a statement. "The 210 Elite is an amazing design and is a big part of my overall confidence every time I'm on the water. Just as important, though, are the people at Stratos. They're a great group with a huge love for fishing, an uncompromising product and total commitment to solid performance - just the kind of drive that delivers a lot of winning momentum."

With four BASS Elite Series tournament wins, 22 top-10 finishes and more than $1.2 million in career earnings, McClelland joins a pro staff that includes professional bass fishing veteran Larry Nixon and reigning BASS Angler of the Year Skeet Reese.
