Palaniuk just added a two pounder to his livewell. He now has three for probably 7 pounds or so. He also just boated two non-keepers. He called his last keeper a "little ole two pounder," but while he may not want it, he needs it. Once he fills his limit he can worry about culling. While I was typing, Palaniuk hooked up and boated his fourth keeper. He measured it and put it in the box. Probably about a 1 3/4, but hey that's a pound and three-quarters he didn't have a second ago.
Our BASSTrakk isn't working, but he culled with another 4 pounds. He should be over 20 pounds now. Photo and update by Bassmaster Marshal Bryan Hanson
The weather was mild but the tension was palpable at the final-day launch on St. Clair.
For anglers wanting to make the run south to Lake Erie this week, they've had to navigate the Detroit River's "Miracle Mile," a stretch of particularly rough water often crowded by freighters, yachts, and various large pleasure boats.
