Lowrance angler wins first Bassmaster Classic

Lowrance Pro Team member Randy Howell won his first Bassmaster Classic on Lake Guntersville, Ala.

Nearly 70 percent of the 55 Classic competitors used Lowrance fishfinders or chartplotters in the competition.

Howell, of Springfield, Ala., came from 11th place and 9 pounds behind the leader, fellow Lowrance pro Edwin Evers, on the second day to win the title and a $300,000 payout.

"My Lowrance HDS12 Gen2 Touch with StructureScan HD helped me find bass that were suspended off the sides of the rocky banks,” Howell said in a statement. “I came back every day to see if they would bite and, on the final day when it counted, they did.”
