We sat down on Randy Howell as the snow is piling up in Meador’s Ranger. Howell caught a 6-pounder earlier – yes, he caught it – but he’s fishing with five of the six trebles of his jerkbait bent in.
“I just want them to pull on it a little bit so I can get a sense of how big it is,” he said. At the moment he’s doing legitimate practice, trying to find new water.
“I’ve got two spots at either end of the lake, and I’m looking for something in-between now,” he said. Howell’s observer Mike Drisko captured Howell’s fish.
