Bassmaster Elite Series pro Randy Howell of Alabama jumped from 11 places today to win the 2014 Bassmaster Classic on Lake Guntersville. Howell changes fishing area, claims 2014 Bassmaster Classic
752 Views - Posted: February 23 at 8:45 pm

Alabama’s Randy Howell had only two B.A.S.S. wins to his credit when his twelfth Bassmaster Classic competition began on Friday. He went into today’s final round in 11th place, 9 pounds behind the leader.

No one, including Howell really thought he had a shot.

“I didn’t expect to have the chance to win after the first day, and especially after yesterday,” Howell said.

But he whacked the bass today, putting 29 pounds, 2 ounces on the scales to seal the 2014 Bassmaster Classic championship and pocketing the $300,000 first-place prize.


Maiden pro Hank Cherry could only sit and watch as his 2014 Bassmaster Classic run ended. Cherry improves weight, misses Bassmaster Classic cut
527 Views - Posted: February 22 at 8:47 pm

Maiden’s Hank Cherry returned to the waters that gave up his first-day Bassmaster Classic stringer today, but by lunchtime it was apparent it wasn’t going to happen there.

“I went to cranking rocks this afternoon,” Cherry said.

That strategy yielded quick results, and the Bassmaster Elite Series pro built a 17-pound, 7 ounce stringer.

But it wasn’t enough to make the cut: Cherry wrapped up the tournament in 27th place, only two places out of the cut.


Edwin Evers barely moved ahead of Randall Tharp to claim the lead after two days of competition in the 2014 Bassmaster Classic. Evers edges out Tharp for Day 2 lead in Bassmaster Classic
446 Views - Posted: February 22 at 8:12 pm

Oklahoma’s Edwin Evers was the last to weigh in during the second day of the Bassmaster Classic, and when the scales settled he had claimed the lead of the so-called Superbowl of Fishing — but just barely.

Emcee Dave Mercer announced Evers needed 20 pounds, 9 ounces to claim the lead, and that’s exactly what the scales read.

The stringer brought Ever’s two-day weight to 47 pounds, 6 ounces.

Randall Tharp said local knowledge was one of the keys to his 27-pound, 8-ounce showing today that put him in lead of the 2014 Bassmaster Classic on Alabama’s Lake Guntersville.

“The fish are in some places I haven’t seen them in five to seven years,” the Florida pro said. “Every time I fish a tournament here this time of year, I make a point to check these places — and the fish haven’t been there in years.”


Maiden's Hank Cherry had a great final-day practice for the 2014 Bassmaster Classic, but heavy storms muddied up his areas and forced him to figure out a new plan. Cherry has tough day on Bassmaster Classic’s first day
496 Views - Posted: February 21 at 7:28 pm

Maiden’s Hank Cherry had a strange practice leading up to this weekend’s Bassmaster Classic on Lake Guntersville, Ala.

“I had one pretty good day, and then I had two not-so-good ones,” Cherry said after leaving the weigh-in stage. “But after Wednesday I thought I was going to kill it;it was that good.”

Unfortunately, he was thrown a curve ball when a severe storm system rolled through the area and dumped inches of rain and kicked up high winds — a combination that turned all of Cherry’s spots to mud pits.
