Livingston Lures Howeller Dream Master Classic Plus
The Livingston Lures Howeller Dream Master Classic Plus Crankbait is an enhanced version of the lure that single-handedly won Randy Howell the 2014 Bassmaster Classic on Lake Guntersville. Built in the image of the original Classic-winning crankbait, the Dream Master Classic Plus is bulked up a bit with a size of 2 5/8" compared to the 2 1/2" original. Even at 2 5/8", the Dream Master Classic Plus possesses a very universal size that mimics a number of forage species bass feed upon including shad, crawfish and bluegill among others. The profile of this bait makes it really thump when retrieving it through the water and once it hits an obstruction, it will deflect away with an erratic action - it's very enticing.
New to the Howeller Dream Master Classic Plus is Livingston's EBSMT (Electronic Baitfish Sound Multi-Touch) technology which provides anglers with four unique forage species sounds including: original, craw, shad and silent. The sound emission begins upon the lure hitting the water serving almost as a dinner bell for opportunistic bass. Covering he oft overlooked 8-10 foot depth range, this crankbait provides anglers with the perfect tool for targeting pre and post spawn bass that stage up on cover nearby shallow flats.

About Livingston EBSMT
The new EBSMT sound options require a bit of explaining to understand how it works. The basic mechanics of EBS MultiTouch in the new Team Livingston baits are the same as original EBS: contact with the water closes an electronic circuit between the line tie, hook eyelet and sound-producing circuit board, quickly activating the bait. The Team Livingston baits allow the angler to change the sound emitted underwater by simply immersing the bait in water for 5 seconds to activate MultiTouch and then touching the line-tie and front-hook eyelets. Once the angler has the desired baitfish sound, he/she simply releases the contact points.

By continuing to hold, you will hear a brief pause followed by the second sound, EBS Craw.
To select this sound, release both Contact Points. To select another sound, continue holding the Contact Points.
By continuing to hold, you will hear a brief pause followed by the third sound, EBS Shad.
To select this sound, release both Contact Points.

You are now at the end of the cycle. In order to select another sound, repeat steps 1-4.
Your MultiTouch Livingston Lure will go into sleep mode if left motionless longer than 3 minutes. This includes in the water, in your tackle box, and hanging from your rod. To power off your lure sooner than 3 minutes, simply dry thoroughly and the lure will turn off.

Built to dive down to medium-depths, the Livingston Lures Howeller Dream Master Classic Plus features a rounded bill that produces a wide, strong wobble and an erratic action that bass simply cannot resist.
