Cool! "Randy Howell's Miracle Classic" -- that's exactly what they should call it! 

Tony Arnoâš¾ ‏@Tonester5 

Don't shortchange yourself Sir, you have a ton of experience & knowledge. You know how to hook'um!! Great job. 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

Thank you so much, Tony! Let's eat some pizza! 

Tony Arnoâš¾ ‏@Tonester5 

Sounds great! If you come to NY to fish Lake Champlain or Onieda Lake, look me up for Pizza! You’re Welcome bud.

I'm bass fishing Guntersville in mid march, any advice? 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

Take some big line! You're going to catch a lot of fish - it should put a lot of fish in shallow. A 6-inch Senko will be good! 

Zachary Marksbury ‏@ZakMarksbury54 

Thanks man! Appreciate it

What key change did you make on day 3 that lit the Classic up? 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

The location I went to & the bait took me from 20lbs. or so to the 29 I needed. It seems subtle but it was a big deal.

Congrats! What was the weirdest thing someone yelled from the bridge?

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

My aunt was there and this guy kept yelling “Your aunt is going to make you a homemade chocolate chip pie!” - & she doesn’t cook!

Why do you think your fish on the final day were stacked on that bridge, instead of going shallow? God bless 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

There was a shad kill in January, and the only shad left were in the deep water around that bridge. When it warmed up, the shad came up more shallow and the bass followed.

What's your best advice for co anglers trying to advance to the professional level? 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

Learn to be versatile. Use every bait & every technique & fish different than the pro. Learn from everyone! 

 

Justin Raughton ‏@JustinRaughton 

You spent all that money yet? haha 

Randy Howell ‏@theRandyHowell 

Not any of it! No time for spending money because we've been so busy; haven't even had time for food!
