Fearless bass assassin Randy Howell steps into the squared-circle (that is a pro wrestling ring for those who don’t know) of pro bass fishing to take on what can only be considered his greatest challenge to date!

Yes, this wiry Mercury pro and former Bassmaster Classic champion summoned up the courage to answer Three Questions from BassFIRST.com.

DL – Given the choice, would you vacation at Walt Disney World or in Paris, France?

RH – I’d have to say Paris. I’ve never been there before. I’ve been to Disney World many times. Now, if I had a place to pick that would be ideal it would be a tropical location I’d take my entire family. Some place where the fishing is great and the seafood is delicious. My family loves to fish in the saltwater. It’s always an adventure.

For me and my wife, Paris would be great. I am an explorer by nature. Finding out more about the culture and the food, that would be great.

DL – What is King’s Home?

RH – King’s Home is a faith-based ministry in the Birmingham, Alabama area. It helps troubled teens and women, single mothers, etc., who’ve been victims of domestic abuse.

The ministry provides housing and support to help people get back on their feet that don’t have that in their lives. It is a wonderful organization and I am proud to be associated with them. Go to the www.kingshome.com website to find out more.

DL – Do you prefer steak or desert?

RH – Give me a bacon-wrapped filet or a big ribeye. I love sweets, but I am a big meat eater. I can cook a pretty good one, but I prefer to eat them at a good steak place like Fleming’s down south or Ruth’s Chris.Those restaurants have that good beef that we can’t get at the grocery store. It’s so good.

Probably one of the best I had was at ICAST (International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades) in Las Vegas several years ago. It was a $180 steak. Kobe beef. It was so good. I could eat that every day.
