UNION SPRINGS, N.Y. — August is Brandon Palaniuk’s charmed time of year. New York is his state of magic.
 
Last August, the pro angler from Rathdrum, Idaho, won a Bassmaster Elite Series event on the St. Lawrence River in upstate New York. At age 25, he pocketed the $100,000 prize and achieved his goal qualifying for the 2014 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by Diet Mountain Dew and GroPro.

2014 Forrest Wood Cup about to kick off!

Teaser image: 

The 2014 Forrest Wood Cup kicks off in about 9 hours which means I'm about to hit the hay because I'll be out there on the water following 45 of America's best anglers all over 50,000-acre Lake Murray. Actually, I expect many of them to run up the rivers and creeks in search of enough shallow bass to win $500,000 and a world championship title over 4 days of fishing that promise to be more of a marathon than a sprint.

Stay with us all week at AnglersChannel.com for updates from the Cup and remember to catch the action on the Progressive Bass Wrap Up TV Show!

Michael Iaconelli hopped five feet down off the Bassmaster Elite Series stage, turned and hoisted his 55-pound winner’s trophy, then practically danced with it up through the roaring audience stacked on the concrete steps of the Great Stage of Penn’s Landing.
 
Moments before, he had told the crowd exactly what he was feeling as he won the Bassmaster Elite on the Delaware River.
 
“I won today, but not for me. I won for you guys,” said Iaconelli, Philly-born and raised in New Jersey.
