Scott R. Martin from Clewiston Florida is one of the hottest and brightest stars in professional fishing today. Coming from a long family heritage of fishing and being the son of Roland Martin, the holder of many records in professional fishing and star of “Fishing with Roland Martin” that has been running for over 30 years, it was no surprise that Scott would follow the family legacy.
Since 1996, the Walmart FLW Tour has represented the highest level of tournament bass fishing in the FLW circuit of local and national events. The season consists of six tournaments where as many as 150 pros and as many co-anglers compete for as much as $125,000 and $25,000, respectively, per tournament. The top pro and co-angler from the point standings after the six qualifying tournaments win the FLW Tour Angler of the Year and Co-angler of the Year titles, respectively.
FLW Rayovac Lake Okeechobee - 9th - Recap
My pattern was outside grass lines on the main lake near the shoal and north shore areas...Day 1 I caught my two best fish on a Bruiser Baits 10" worm (junebug) rigged on 20lb P-Line 100% fluorocarbon with a TrokarTK130....this was fun!...old school worming! Day 2 the wind picked up and I switch the M-Pack Lures swim jig...sweet jig with an awesome new weed guard design. I rigged this on a Okuma Fishing USA 7.6 TCS Heavy with 65lb P-line X-Braid...all while targeting main lake grass points with good water clarity. (muddy water is no good on Okeechobee) Day 3 was a mess!! 30 mph winds made it very hard for me. I had to resort to catching them on various baits. Swim jig, flipping, swimbait and worms. A special thanks to Bob's Machine Shop and Power-Pole® Shallow Water Anchor I couldn't do it without these products....huge difference makers for me!
With the 2014 Walmart FLW Tour under way, there’s a lot more to do than just go fishing every day. I just finished up the Lake Okeechobee event in my hometown of Clewiston, Fla., where I snuck out of town with a 17th-place finish. But my boy Brett Hite really set the stage and almost broke records with his first day catch of just under 35 pounds. Lake Okeechobee is on fire and the fishing is fantastic.
