Bass Master Elite Series Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk knew he wanted to be a professional fisherman when he was young. He discovered fishing right around the time he discovered wrestling. As a youth, a trip to a North Idaho College dual meet introduced him to the sport, while fishing with family and friends introduced him to his passion.
On Episode 356 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, we talk to Palaniuk about his wrestling career, it's relationship to fishing and how he was called out of “retirement” after high school to fill the spot at 133 pounds for North Idaho College and coach Pat Whitcomb about 10 years ago. Still a wrestler, Palaniuk is one of the top anglers in the world, evidenced by his season-long performance within Bass Master events.
