Alabama pro on fishing 2014 Lake Guntersville Bassmaster Classic “First warm Sunday morning of the Classic and I’ve been fishing the bridges all along and I’ve been the only one. Usually in the Elites when you find yourself fishing alone it could very possibly not a good thing. You either have it all wrong or it you just happened on the right place to be. When it’s warm and pretty the first warm weekend of the year and the people will come out and be fishing them too. The Millcreek Bridge, that Triton in the wind. I see that picture in my mind of me under that bridge and fishing that bridge. I told Livingston Lures and the camera guys where to be. Only the top six pros have the GoPro ESPN camera boats filming on the windshield filming everything. That camera is what saved everything.”
One big bite is all it could take When people are saying you have the home team advantage put on you then that is some pressure to perform and to perform well. “I hear it in my head over and over go to the Millcreek Bridge. Do you want to be good or do you want to be great, I can hear that in my mind. So I turned around the boat. It was an amazing feeling I never had before. I even had tears running down my face.” To Howell fishing is the family business and he was trained up on the Bible.

Alabama has eight bass pros on the water Some anglers wish Bassmaster would just move the ‘Classic’ back to summer like they used to. The reason being to make the bass pros really show us how it’s done coming up with a winning sack day after day in the heat of summer. Is fishing in the winter pre-spawn making it too easy? There is one vein of fishing thought that lends to why the ‘Classic’ moved to the winter because it’s all about the money spent. People don’t buy boats and spend big fishing bucks at the end of the fishing season. The rather prestigious Forrest Wood Cup is in August and the media is just as big and loud. As for the money spent that’s a good question. B.A.S.S. announced in 2006 the Classic would move to late February or March to allow for more TV audience, before baseball and NASCAR and after football.
