Arashi Wake Crank a bass magnet

 Video Included

An Idaho outdoorsman had plenty of time to talk about some keys to his success this year as an Elite Series angler as part of a four-year career that has earned him $517,632.

Brandon Palaniuk spoke highly the last week of September about techniques and patterns that have been working consistently.

During the call, Palaniuk eventually mentioned a recently released artificial lure that he helped design. That lure was a key to catching bass in clutch situations across the country.

The Storm Arashi Wake Crank has become one of his go-to baits.
