Viewers of Bassmaster LIVE are getting a show out of Palaniuk right now. We just watched him boat a 3-plus-pounder. This one did not want to come into the boat.
After several attempts he reached his arm in the water up to the elbows and hauled it out.
With a cull, he should have about 12 pounds, we estimate.
We are leaving Palaniuk now, headed to check on some other anglers.
