Brandon Palaniuk has proven himself with smallmouth and spinning tackle. In this video he discusses his throwback setup of Abu Garcia reels and Fenwick rods. And how keeping it simple has helped him.

Video Transcript: I have a 6’1o Medium Light Fenwick Elite Tech Drop Shot Stick, they don’t make it anymore. But I’ve got it paired up with a Abu Garcia Revo Premier 20. I like the 20 just because it balances the rod out better vs. a 10; 10 is a little bit too small. These smallmouths a lot of the time they will run at you and that little bit bigger spool allows you catch up to them, get a little better hook set in them. Then I run 8 pound Berkley FireLine Nanofil. Actually let take that back, it’s just Berkley Nanofil. Same fibers as FireLine Crystal put together different and then I tie it together with an eight pound Berkley Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon leader and I tie it with a double uni knot. I’ve always done that, probably always will.  I mean this is the same setup that I catch lake trout in 180 ft. or smallmouth in 2ft. I mean it doesn’t matter same set up, same line size, I’ll drop down to 6 and sometimes go up to 10 but I don’t ever go very rarely do I go any lighter than that and I never go any heavier than that.
