Charleston, SC – Huk Performance Fishing is proud to announce that today, professional bass angler Brandon Palaniuk has joined the Huk team.
From successfully competing in club competitions, to earning a spot on the Idaho State Team, to making it to the B.A.S.S. Federation Nation national championship, and finally securing a tour card by winning it, Brandon Palaniuk is all in on the professional bass fishing tournament trail.
"The first time I met the guys from Huk I knew that this wasn't going to be your average clothing company,” said Brandon Palaniuk. “Every item is designed and built with a purpose. Whether it's a blistering summer day in Florida or an arctic blast up north in the fall, they got you covered with the best!"
“We’re proud to welcome Brandon to the Huk family and are excited at the opportunity to outfit him on the water this season. Brandon is a true gear guy; his attention to detail and feedback on product will help us take our gear to the next level,” said Ben Verner, President of Huk. “His aggressive style of power-fishing, his love for the competition and his persistence fits perfectly with our passion to provide anglers with most technically-advanced performance apparel solutions on the market that offers the angler a competitive advantage.”
Kyle Alsop and Taylor Bivins of Kansas State University are the winners of the 2016 Carhartt Bassmaster College Series National Championship, thanks to a series of consistent weights. They finished the tournament on Kentucky's Green River Lake with 36 pounds, 4 ounces.
The Kansas State team was the only one in the field of 89 teams to bring in more than 10 pounds every day.
You often hear the phrase there is nothing more important than a friend but like many other clichés of life especially at today’s pace, many of these old time sayings are said without really understanding their meaning. As I look back at the past five decades of my life spent in blue water and at my hunting career which has taken me all over the globe, I lift both hands in front of me and start counting off the friends which I could call at any time day or night for help; those who would put their life in jeopardy to save mine, or for that matter those who I can count on in the absolute worst of situations.
America (and much of the globe) seems to have an obsession with billfish, but few species are as popular as the Atlantic blue marlin. Not that there is anything wrong with black marlin, sailfish, swordfish, or striped marlin; it’s just that the blue marlin, which is the largest of the billfish group, has captured the hearts and passions of anglers for centuries.
If you want to join the ranks of anglers who’ve pulled up a blue marlin, you have your work cut out for you. But with the right techniques, you can add this world-class trophy to your list.
