22 / 50
Brandon Palaniuk didn’t have his stereotypical smallmouth fishing day that we are so accustomed to seeing. He is sitting in 27th in the tournament and 22nd in Angler of the Year. Palaniuk and Evers are tied, but the tiebreaker gives Evers the advantage. Palaniuk can move past Evers with a good day 2, but other than that he needs to jump 8 points or fall 6 points to make any kind of AOY change.
