Palaniuk didn't stay long in yesterday's big fish spot. Now he's farther back in Horse Creek, fishing a bank with a little more incline. He wasn't here five minutes before hooking -- and losing -- what would've been his sixth fish today. He grunted in exasperation but quickly composed himself and went back to fishing. He has been cheerful and talkative all day, and that was the first sign of frustration we've seen out of him.
He just landed No. 6 while I was typing this. He's checking it against his smaller fish now ...it's no help.
