Daiwa pro Randy Howell had a well-documented tournament to remember at the first Bass Pro Tour regular-season event of the 2022 season in Monroe, Louisiana. Howell connected with his (then) personal-best largemouth in the Knockout Round, a 10-pound, 11-ounce giant, but then one-upped himself the next day with a gargantuan 12-14!

Howell shares all the details of the gear he used to corral that big fish, from the Daiwa Tatula Elite Ish Monroe rod that he used to keep the big fish’s head turned away from the bush to the 5-inch black and blue Yamamoto Senko she chomped on.
