I found a video of Byron Velvick giving Randy Howell some Livingston Lures prototypes at Bassmaster classic. Though some of you might like seeing it too

I heard on a pod-cast that Byron showed up at the press conference after the final day and asked Randy about the lures.  The guys on the pod-cast were not happy that he got in since he is not a media person.   I did hear Randy say he used a DT-6 to catch some fish.  They were joking Brandon Paulinik should have came in and asked some questions.  Guess you do what ever it takes to promote your product.

Dartag if you watch the other video you will see Randy change out lures just before he started culling fish. so he did use the DT-6 for a while but wanted some thing to run a little deeper.

I did see that.  They had great go pro footage of him on the last day.   I spent most of the afternoon watching them.   He is sponsored by Livingston so it was probably a good thing he switched.  Bet there sales have increased since that day. 

I am impressed with the go pros.  Only time I have ever seen one in action was when we went to the Hot Ponds.  Mike had one.   Got great footage of us breaking ice.   Going to get one before spring to record my days on the lake.

Byron Velvick was there in the back of the press room. I doubt he would have any problem getting a press pass if he didn't already have one. I remember Randy Howell mentioning Byron, and possibly Byron saying something back, but I can't recall Byron asking a question on his own by proactively requesting the mic? It is very possible I forgot this but I have most of it on voice recorder. I am getting a vague idea Byron may have asked a question. I haven't had time to get back to my video, pictures and voice recordings with Outdoorama being this past week.

Considering that Livingston Lures is a Bassmaster sponsor I can't see why anyone would question any promotion opportunity Randy Howell, Byron Velvick or B.A.S.S. did or allowed to happen?? Seems like cabin fever is more wide spread, or maybe a slow news day? B.A.S.S. and their sponsors, and professional anglers taking advantage of promotional opportunities is a pretty big part of what this sport is about so I don't know why any 'media' would be surprised something like this occurred. Afterall, they are in that room to report on everything, and they'll go into excruciating detail about every detail of the tournament including which lure brand, size, type, weight, color was used.

Having a company rep there to answer questions about a prototype bait should be seen as helpful since there won't be many details available yet about the lure (it wasn't even in the room). Any of us should be so lucky to have a product featured in any way in a Bassmaster Classic win!!! I would LOVE to have a Classic winner say something like, 'I found some key information that helped me win the Classic on GreatLakesBass.com' or something like that. I sure as heck would highlight that if I was at the Classic and had a chance to do it!!! :D

I do know one specific crankbait question that led to more discussion about the Livingston crankbait later in the press conference was asked by our own Wild Michigan Outdoors Radio host Duran Martinez because he was sitting next to me and I got it on video. I remember Randy talked about it earlier in the press conference - how he was catching his limit and many bass on the Rapala, and then later switched to the Livingston prototype that he caught a 6-pounder on. Won't remember the rest until I go through all my media this week.
