Howell on Plan B

7:52 am CDT, Jun 23, 2013 | By Mark Hicks

We're in Stoddard Bay. We can't find Roumbanis, but we did run into Randy Howell. We watch him pluck a keeper from a patch of duck wart with a Senko.

 

He's not happy to be here. Plan A for Howell was to lock down to Pool 9. A barge in the lock has him on hold.

 

"The river is so muddied up from the rain it might make it tough on some of the other guys," Howell said.

 

"If I can get through the lock to my fish, I could make a big move today. The water is a lot cleaner down there."

 

Howell fishes a frog over a mix off matted aquatic grass, hoping to boat a few more before the lock is free.
