The youngest angler in the Bassmaster Classic 2012, qualified for both the Bassmaster Elite Series and the Bassmaster Classic via the 2010 B.A.S.S. Federation Nation.

Palaniuk is handling his experience like a professional, even though he is somewhat the new intitiate on the block.

Another Bassmaster Classic 2012 field favorite, how many is that now.
