Hayden, Id – January 10, 2017 – Brandon Palaniuk, the 29-year-old Bassmaster Elite Series professional angler from Hayden, Id has joined the ZOOM Bait Company Pro Staff.

Palaniuk, a two-time Bassmaster Elite Series Champion and winner of the 2010 BASS Nation National Championship is one of the most popular young anglers in the business; has chosen to join the fishing industries’ most recognizable and widely distributed brand of soft plastic baits as a promotional team member.

While he had other options, it was the quality of the product that made up his mind.  “Some of the first baits I ever fished were made by ZOOM,” said Palaniuk.  “I have always had a lot of faith in the products, and when the opportunity came for me to explore new partnership options, my first choice was ZOOM.”

The decision was based primarily on the merit of the product, and his familiarity with it.  “ZOOM has been the innovation, design and many industry standards for years, with lures like the Super Fluke, Trick Worm, Horny Toad and Super Chunk; they are baits we’ve all used” he said.  “I had other opportunities to work with other companies for more money, but Zoom gives me the best chance to perform well on the water.”

As a person who makes their living casting for bass, Palaniuk knows that he must rely on the weapons in his arsenal to perform.  “We must believe in everything we throw when we are on the water; there is no room for second guessing how a lure will perform,” he said.  “I have the utmost confidence that ZOOM makes the most consistent soft baits in the best colors, and makes me really proud to be representing them going forward.”

ZOOM knows the quality of angler they are getting in Palaniuk.  “We are very excited about Brandon joining our ZOOM Pro Staff,” said Eddie Wortham ZOOM Bait Company General Manager.  “Brandon represents some of the best young talent on the Bassmaster Elite Series and we are thrilled he will be fishing Zoom Baits next year.”

Palaniuk joins a pro staff that includes the likes of 2016 Bassmaster Classic Champion Edwin Evers, 2016 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Gerald Swindle, 2015 Bassmaster Classic Champion Casey Ashley, and three-time FLW Tour Angler of the Year Andy Morgan.
