Palaniuk: ‘It’s a lot slower’

Brandon Palaniuk went right back to the well that produced a quick 16-pound limit yesterday, but it’s not going as well as this morning.

Palaniuk has just two smallies in the livewell for about 5 1/2 pounds.

“It’s a lot slower,” he said. “There’s not the bait stacked up like yesterday.”

My boater said the situation is different under our boat.

“There’s a lot of bait under us,” Steve Dinco said. “He’s on the wrong side of the reef, but he’ll figure that out.”

Dinco also said the building winds will likely help Palaniuk’s bite.

“This breeze is probably good for him - the fish will start piling up,” Dinco said. “It’ll put a little more current in the water and group up the baitfish.”
