Palaniuk gets a good one

Finally! Palaniuk managed to get a good one in the boat. He fought it seemingly forever on his light spinning gear, taking no chances. This one weighs about 3 pounds, although it isn't quite the size of the two he missed. 

He's catching small ones fairly regularly but they won't help. He's digging in his rod locker now, looking for a setup that draws bigger bites.
