Howell fishin' where the birds are feedin'

A flock of terns diving on bait attracted Randy Howell's attention, and he raced a few hundred yards to where they were feeding. He's tried several baits but hasn't hooked up.


Just prior to that, his close friend -- and newly crowned Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year -- Brent Chapman paid him a visit. We couldn't hear the exchange, but Howell did say at the pre-launch interview that he hoped Chapman would let him know if fish were biting down on the far west end of Oneida where they both fished earlier in the week. Apparently the report wasn't promising enough to get Howell to leave the flat he started on this morning.
