BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — A few days ago, everyone wondered who would be the champion of the 2014 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by Diet Mountain Dew and GoPro.

Many of the pundits picked recent Classic winners, such as Kevin VanDam, Skeet Reese and Mike Iaconelli.

Others picked locals, such as Aaron Martens and Gerald Swindle.

Few focused on Randy Howell.

But Howell showed everyone who's boss.

And he called his win a "miracle" today during a Twitter chat in the B.A.S.S. headquarters office. You can see photos from the visit here and watch the entire chat as it took place here.

Below is the transcript from the lively Twitter chat. You can also read transcripts from other Bassmaster Elite Series pros here

If you could give just a few tips to an upcoming angler, what would you tell them?

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

There is no substitute for time on the water - fish as much as you can! Try new things! 

 

Brandon Howard™ ‏@OReOs_No_MiLk 

Would you rather take 100 elite wins, or 1 classic win? 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

That's a tough one! Classic win right now. It's the biggest, most special deal of my life.
