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.
Confidence is high for day 3 of the Walmart Season opener on Lake Okeechobee. Sitting in 14th place with 36-7. Foggy morning but that's not holding back the top 20. It's go time.
The schedule is set for the 2014 Walmart FLW Tour and Scott Martin is gearing up for a very competitive season. Join him along the tournament trail for launch-to-scales action.
Martin, the 2011 Forrest Wood Cup champion, hails from a famous fishing family – he is the son of the legendary Roland Martin. 2013 marks Martin’s 14th season the FLW Tour, and he will be fishing alongside his father Roland once again. 2012 was another great year for Martin, winning the Tour event on the Potomac River and finishing top-10 in two other tournaments, including a fourth-place at the 2012 Forrest Wood Cup. His recent 2012 winnings have pushed him just over the $2 million mark in earnings.
