Pastor Chad and Randy Howell

Randy Howell conducted a great seminar at Central Baptist Church this last week. Howell is definitely a fishing authority; finishing sixth in B.A.S.S, angler of the year standings. He shared some fishing tips along with his personal testimony. I don’t think there’s any doubt he’s been personally touched by God. (Dozens of times)  We’re so blessed to have him on our team. You can visit Randy’s website at:

The Crappiemasters Tournament Trail has posted a tentative, 2010 schedule at: Locations include several of my favorites; Lake Monroe, AL River, Grenada and Truman Lakes. Our Road Runner anglers finished very well this past season and I look forward to the next.

Speaking of tournaments… Howell brought this up in his seminar. “The toughest thing about tournament fishing is leaving fish you caught the day before, to find fish that will bite on the second day of the tournament.” Now I know I don’t have to beat the “but we caught ‘em during practice” horse, too hard. But here’s my official reminder: Find fish that will bite, and then find fish that will bite in three other places. (Winds come in four different directions.)

Your right to fish is in danger…There are numerous bills and a U.N. treaty that are attacking our right to fish. Please visit: to learn more and to send your congressman a message.

I apologize for the abbreviated blog this week as I’m out of the office for minor surgery. This is too funny; the surgeon is going to remove part of my toe and straighten it out. (Don’t apologize, I’m laughing too.) Affectionately known as my “Tru-Turn Toe”; it has been getting harder for me to walk on, will be a “straight shank” soon. I’m hoping to freeze that piece of toe and use it as bait later.

Blessings, -TJ
