Brandon Palaniuk has pinged into service. The verdict is…he has over 20 pounds, to be exact BP has 24-7. This puts Palaniuk in the lead, unofficially. The Idaho native has had only one bad tournament this year, finishing 105th at Lake Okeechobee. After a pair of Top 12’s and what seems to be another on Sam Rayburn, Palaniuk will be well on his way to securing his eighth Bassmaster Classic berth.
