HOW BRANDON PALANIUK CLAIMED THE BASSMASTER ELITE VICTORY ON LAKE CHAMPLAIN
Brandon Palaniuk’s BassMaster Elite Victory
Brandon Palaniuk’s return to the Bassmaster Elite Series in 2020 was made that much sweeter when his final day weight of 21 pounds and six ounces was announced on the shores of Lake Champlain. Winning a tournament at the highest level of bass fishing requires preparation, patience and perseverance. And some say a little bit of luck.
But as Palaniuk likes to say, “I’d rather make my own luck.”
“Instinct and decision-making in tournaments is a huge part of the game. But those decisions become so much easier when your technology and equipment point you in the right direction,” he said shortly after hoisting the treasured blue trophy.
In this article, Brandon shares his approach to practice days on the water and how he tackled the four days on Lake Champlain en route to his fourth career Bassmaster Elite Series win.
