Another year and another great experience for the Topwater crew. When most think of New Orleans, they think of Mardi Gras, southern fried food and Bourbon Street. This week however, was special as 50 of the top bass anglers in the world descended on the Louisiana Delta. Topwater team member Brandon Palaniuk rose to the occasion and represented well taking down some of the biggest names in fishing. Brandon fearlessly stood toe to toe with KVD, Skeet and Ike and fell just short of the world championship. With a fourth place finish in his very first classic, Brandon got the wheels rolling on his Elite Series career. Brandon represented Team Topwater well and expectations are high for his future.
