Fishing Evolved: Brandon Palaniuk with a Classic Opportunity
Palaniuk ponders his bid for Bassmaster Classic crown
I was excited to qualify for the 2016 Classic. After digging myself a hole with disappointing finishes in my first two Elite Series tournaments of the 2015 season, I got back on track when I quit playing it safe, quit looking at the points standings, and went out to catch the most fish possible every single day.
That approach helped turn my season around. I ended up finishing 10th in the points race—my personal best—and qualified for my sixth Classic.
