Day 3 leader Brandon Palaniuk won't let the AOY race distract him from the tournament at hand.
Aaron Martens came to Lake St. Clair with a 69-point lead over his closest competitor in the AOY race. He’s going to leave with a nearly insurmountable margin of at least 96 points, maybe more.

Just when you think you have these darn smallmouth figured out, they throw you a big, sweeping curve ball. That’s what happened to me Thursday in the Plano Bassmaster Elite tournament on Lake St. Clair. I had one of the toughest days I’ve ever had on the lake. That’s the same Lake St. Clair that I really love and have fished numerous times. But this time…and at least the first day…the smallmouth won.
