Pressure Packed or Not, Randy Howell Loves to Play the Game

This MLF pro knows a thing or two about the stress of competition, off-the-water obligations and facing the pressure it all can bring

Randy Howell, of Guntersville, Ala., has competed for years as a professional angler on circuits like the Bassmaster Elite Series and others, carving out a niche for himself as one of the best anglers out there in the modern game.

Though he is conditioned to the pressure of tournament fishing – and from winning events like the 2014 Bassmaster Classic – he admits his experiences from fishing in various Major League Fishing Select- and Cup-level events over the last few years have taught him a whole lot more about the process of being a professional angler.
