Game-changer at 2:36

As soon as he set the hook, Brandon Palaniuk said, "It's huge! That's it right there, baby!"

And for today anyway, it was - a 5-pound, 15-ounce bass - his biggest of the day - at 2:36 p.m. Palaniuk was so excited that he forgot to put the 21-inch-plus fish in his livewell.

"I feel like an idiot now," he said.

Well, maybe for just a moment. He's a very happy idiot right now.
