Rootin' for Randy

You've just gotta root for Randy Howell, one of the nicest and most consistent anglers in the Elite Series. Howell has won just one B.A.S.S. tournament in his career, the very first Bassmaster Elite 50 (Lake Dardanelle, 2004). Because of the way that series was set up (prize money was deferred and mostly paid at the end of the season to points leaders), Howell earned just $5,500 for that victory. A win at Oneida would be worth almost 20 times that!
