The final score was 23-0 for Randy Howell/Alabama over David Walker/Tennessee. A few corrections are in order, Howell did catch 2 smallmouths and 1 largemouth today, not a small pike, as I reported earlier. And Walker's fish was a small pumpkinseed, not a gizzard shad. Those reporting mistakes were hazards of staying out of the TV camera range. Howell's 0.39-pound largemouth took both big bass and first bass honors, worth a total of 14 points. The other 9 points were accumulated with the 3 fish catches.
