Bassmaster Elite Series anglers Aaron Martens, Randy Howell and Brent Chapman have teamed up to launch a new for print only magazine, Bass Quest. The 80-page high-gloss, full-color magazine will be less than 10 percent advertising in the first issue and all issues in the future. Although, all future magazines will be print only, the first issue is available to view online. To view the first issue or to subscribe, visit BassQuestMagazine.com. Bass Quest is offering anglers who subscribe before Jan. 2, 2013 the first issue autographed by all three professionals.
“The magazine will feature no less than 20 different tour level pros,” said Howell. “That means pros from both the Elite Series and the FLW Tour will be in our magazine. I believe the first issue has 10 FLW Tour professionals and 14 Elite Series pros. Each magazine will also feature some high school anglers, college anglers and kids. We are doing some things in the kids section that we hope can excite kids about fishing and give them some opportunities to interview their favorite pro or win some free tackle.”
“Having our own media source allows us to explore sides of this sport most fans never see,” said Martens. “We want to offer a more personal side to the anglers, kind of like People magazine for celebrities. We’ll still be going in depth on how to catch more or bigger fish, but we think that it’s important to share some of the personal side of the anglers.”
“We want to express our support for Bassmaster and the many other great media outlets for bass fishing,” Howell said. “We hope to be a welcome addition to the media that can help grow and enhance our sport. We just love the sport and we all felt like it was time for a magazine from the angler’s perspective.”
Congratulations to JWM for correctly answering this week’s trivia contest! Although we didn’t expect it, he even got the sponsorship question right! Even Randy’s wife didn’t think anyone would get that answer! Great job JWM. For the complete answer and a little history on Randy Howell, read below.
Look carefully at the picture above. The angler in question has experienced success on both the B.A.S.S. and FLW Tours. In order to win, you’ll need to answer the following three questions:
1) Who is the angler seen in the picture?
2) What popular tournament lake was his home base as a teenager?
3) What company was his first title sponsor?
We recognize that Question #3 is a tough one, so if no one answers it correctly by the time the contest closes, we’ll award the prize to the first participant who answered #1 and #2 correctly.
Here’s the answer.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Bassmaster Elite Series pro Randy Howell is doing his part to promote high school bass fishing in Alabama.
For the past two years, Howell has conducted speaking engagements for various high school fishing teams around the Birmingham area. “I try to keep up with what is going on and stay ahead of the game on new things happening,” said Howell. “I believe the college and high school bass fishing is the biggest, fastest growing thing in our sport. I love to help and do things with teenagers that have a passion for fishing like I do.”
Last year, Howell spoke to the Thompson High School fishing team, and when he started receiving requests to speak at other schools, the B.A.S.S. pro decided to work with the Thompson fishing coach to invite other schools to the assembly. This year, Howell held his first speaking engagement Oct. 11 and attracted 25 students from Hayden and Mortimer Jordan high schools. His next assembly on Nov. 13 at the Thompson High School auditorium drew 35 students from Thompson, Oak Mountain, Pelham, Chelsea and Hoover high schools.
