Howell Ready for a Breakthrough

A few days before he left for Oklahoma, Randy Howell was confronted by his young son, Laker, who asked him a simple question: “Are you going to be able to hold that big Bassmaster Classic trophy up?”

It wasn’t necessarily a ridiculous query. After a busy offseason, Howell has endeavored over recent weeks to get back into shape. Under the tutelage of his wife Robin, he’s been involved in a heavy regimen of CrossFit training. Most evenings he is tired and sore. Laker had observed his father’s pain and asked the first thing that came to his mind. Nevertheless, it might’ve had another meaning, not just “Can you lift it?” but “Are you going to win it this year?”

It shouldn’t surprise any serious fishing fan that Brent Ehrler got off to a blazing start to the 2013 FLW Tour season. In both 2010 and 2012 he won the year’s first FLW Tour major, so if anything, his second place finish this year might seem like something of a minor letdown.

The season opener was on Lake Okeechobee, though, deep in Florida, a locale that has been a sticking point across much of his professional career.

Hawk Talk - Pre-spawn Bass in the Grass

I’ve been fishing Lake Guntersville over the past few weeks in anticipation of starting the 2013 tournament season.  It’s given me an opportunity to dial in all of my new tackle and equipment, and gain confidence in some new lipless crankbaits I’ve added to my arsenal for this season.   The lipless crankbait bite on Guntersville is strong right now and will continue to get better as the pre-spawn approaches.  I throw a lipless crankbait throughout the winter and pre-spawn on any body of water with grass in it, because it’s an effective tool to cover water quickly and efficiently and helps me find concentrations of pre-spawn bass.

The guy I had invited to share a day of bass fishing with me on Oregon’s Ten Mile Lake wasn’t happy.

“The hell with it!” I heard him snort.  “I can’t get this damn worm rigged right.  I don’t care if I don’t get fish.  At least I’ll be able to keep my line in the water instead of screwing around trying to get this worm rigged the way you have yours.”

Split Shotting the Kut Tail Worm

If I were to tell you there is a technique that is easy to master, catches finicky fish, requires a minimal tackle investment and is just plain fun, what would you say?  Ok, now that I have your attention, the answer is, of course, the venerable split shot technique.

The split shot rig is a minimalist’s dream.  In its most common form, the split shot rigs consists of a small lead shot crimped 12 to 24 inches above a light wire worm hook adorned with a four inch finesse worm.    Split shotting  excels when the bite is difficult.  Post frontal days, blue bird skies and pressured fish are all prime conditions for split shotting.  When properly configured, the split shot rig can be effective in water as shallow as a foot all the way down to depths of fifty feet or more.
