Last year Jonathon VanDam jumped over Brandon Panaliuk to take his first Bassmaster Elite Series title after going into the final day in 2nd place. This year, JVD wasn’t able to overtake Palaniuk but made sure he kept 2nd place by boxing 19 pounds 9 ounces on the final day of the 2013 St. Lawrence River Showdown in Waddington, New York.
