Brianna or Bri Palaniuk is the little sister of B.A.S.S. Federation Nation Champion and Elite Series Rookie Brandon Palaniuk. Her sparkling personality has gotten her noticed. It all started at the Bassmaster Classic when she was interviewed by Anglers Channel.com for some insight into how Brandon was doing. The people at Anglers Channel.com were obviously impressed and asked Bri to film a shoot with them down in Florida at the Citrus Slam. Also while in Florida Brianna got to do a Hook'd Up segment with Dave Mercer. The people with B.A.S.S were obviously impressed because they asked her to do some BassCam interviews at the Alabama Charge at Pickwick Lake. As Bass Parade blog reported her interviews were quite popular with the Internet audience. Brianna told me, "Being a correspondent of some sort has been my dream since I was a little girl." She also did an interview with Brandon for BassFIRST.com
Brandon has asked Brianna to stay and help him for the rest of the tour as a personal assistant and she is more than happy to do it. I kind of think she is having as much fun on tour as Brandon. She is hoping to do more stuff with B.A.S.S. but said at this point "nothing is in stone."
I highly encourage Bass Pundit readers to use Facebook to let the powers that be at B.A.S.S. (Jerry McKinnis, Angie Thompson, Dave Mercer, Zona, and the official B.A.S.S. Fan Page) know you would like to see more Bri.
Note- I have sent a link to this post on Facebook to Jerry McKinnis,Angie Thompson, Dave Mercer, Zona's Awesome Fishing Show, and B.A.S.S.., also sent a link to Don Barone.
