Buzzbait clinic for Palaniuk & McNeil

10:19 am EDT, Jun 6, 2015

Team Palaniuk and McNeil pulled in a couple hundred yards from Ashley. We meandered over to ask how their morning was shaping up. "We have a 2-pounder in the livewell," said Palaniuk. "Carter was putting on a clinic this morning. I promise you he can skip a buzzbait better than I can!" he said.

20 miles upriver

We are now 20 miles upriver and found team Ashley and Penton. After only a few minutes of watching, Penton sets the hook and lands a nonkeeper. The duo is still looking for their first keeper. How cool is it that our reigning Classic champ volunteered to fish with the All Americans?!

As soon as we pulled up on team Menendez and Sterrit, they boated their first keeper. They have 2 pounds in the livewell. They are flipping shoreline wood that had current blowing past it.
