Brent Chapman & Randy Howell preview the Green Bay Challenge – Bassmaster Elite Series 2012


Brent Chapman and Randy Howell preview the June 28-July 1 Green Bay Challenge with Greg Huff, "Fantasy Fishing Insider" host and bassmaster.com fantasy fishing columnist.

Chapman and Howell, Angler of the Year frontrunner, might camp near each other this week, but they won't likely be camped on the same spots on Lake Michigan's Green Bay. While they will both will be fishing for smallmouths – which everyone agrees will comprise the larger share of the winning bags this week – they'll be targeting different water with different techniques.

"I'm going to hopefully catch smallmouth on a jerkbait and topwater, because I don't like drop-shotting and fishing so deep," said Howell, currently third in the AOY race. "I hope we don't have to do that."

That, however, is exactly what AOY leader Chapman is hoping for.

"I'll probably have a spinning rod in my hand and do a lot of drop-shotting," Chapman said. "I think a drop-shot's probably one of the best smallmouth baits there are. I love to do it when I get on those smallmouths."
