Huk's Luke Palmer dominates Championship to win first Bassmaster Elite Title at Santee Cooper Lakes

Huk performance fishing gear is committed to designing clothing for the hardcore angler, and no angler resembles that commitment more than Luke Palmer.

With a phenomenal four-day total of 96 lbs and 14 oz on Santee Cooper Lakes, Palmer weighed in a dominant Sunday total of 25 lbs and 15 oz to slam the door on the field and take home his first blue trophy.

"I've been waiting a long time to hear you say that," Palmer told Bassmaster Emcee Dave Mercer after his 'Elite Series Champion' announcement. "I was so close to doing it last year, to finally get it done — I wanted to break 100 pounds, but I'll take 96-14." Palmer's eyes were set even higher than his incredible tournament total, even though his winning margin was sixth all time in Bassmaster history.

"This is special," said Palmer, who finished fourth in the 2022 Elite on Santee Cooper. "You work your whole life and you start second guessing yourself and you wonder 'Am I good enough to do it?' I was good one time and one time is better than no time. You always look for that perfect day, and today was my perfect day."

"Luke's embodies everything it means to be a Huk angler. It's clear that he loves this sport, as well as the opportunity to represent our brand on the national stage," said Paige Hill-Murphy, Community Manager for Huk Performance Fishing. "We are very proud of his incredible performance, and look forward to the rest of his season this year."

Palmer relies on Huk's clothing to keep him cool and comfortable on the water all year. From shirts, pants, outerwear, rainwear, and footwear, Huk has anglers covered regardless of season or pursuit.
