Randy Howell's goal is to catch 22 pounds today. But it's not because Day 1 leader John Crews caught 22 pounds yesterday.
"Today is my 22nd (wedding) anniversary, so my goal is to catch 22 pounds," said Randy, who noted that his wife, Robin, is accustomed to these anniversary celebrations at bass tournaments.
"It's either 18 or 19 times now, we've been at a Bassmaster tournament on our anniversary," Randy said. "Robin is used to it by now. We have a good time wherever we go. We'll celebrate after this is over and do something nice."
Give her another trophy, Randy, even if it's not quite as nice as that one you gave her in February. I've heard Elite Series angler's wives love trophies, no matter what the occasion.
