Good sound with clip-on mic?

Hi, I have a Gitane DG-255 and a decent Audio Technica ATM-15a clip-on mic fed into a PODXT Live (for EQing). I understand that the guitar sounds very undesirable with the mic alone, and some EQ does wonder, but there's this persistent air-sound that just doesn't sound professional when played live (ala cd recordings or any decent build-in pickups), not to mention that the feedback is horrendous. Anyone who encountered this problem b4 and has got any valuable tips for me? I position the mic near the bridge under the B string and secured it using bluetag. Exasperated!
Tough time doesn't last, tough man does. Practice!

    The PODXT is not really meant for amplifying
    acoustic instruments. It's used for plugging in an electric guitar
    (with magnetic pickups) definitely not a microphone.

    Even if you were to run a piezo pickup into an acoustic preamp
    (Baggs/Fishman) then into the PODXT, the sound would be inferior IMO.
    I would run the mic or a piezo into an "acoustic" amp or a PA.
    You should place an acoustic preamp between pickup & PA.
