Huntsville, Ala. (WHNT) Randy Howell doesn't pretend to know Lake Guntersville better than the next angler in North Alabama, but he holds the title everyone there wants. Howell won the 2014 Bassmaster Classic which was fished in Guntersville, and weighed in Birmingham. This weekend he is one of the featured seminar speakers at the Tennessee Valley Hunting and Fishing Expo. The celebrity that comes with winning a Classic is something Howell still isn't wuite sure how to handle, but he loves the platform it gives him to reach children.
"I've done this for 22-23 years now and winning the classic has always been a dream of all of ours as pro anglers, and just being able to go around and talk about it and use it for good everywhere we go. I'm thankful for those who want to look up to me and hear about fishing and Christ and all the good things like that."
Howell will also be speaking during three seminars on Saturday.
