First bass for Palaniuk

7:37 am CST, Feb 24, 2013 | By Trey Reid

Palaniuk's first spot is less than a 10-minute run from the boat ramp. We didn't even have time to get cold.

As we pulled up on him, Palaniuk was landing his first bass, a nice 2- to 2 1/4-pounder that he caught with a plastic bait on a spinning rod.
