Prior to the 2015 Walmart FLW Tour season, Scott Martin had banked a total of three top-10 Angler of the Year finishes in his 15-year career as a pro. It was impressive, but not indicative of his greatness. The truth of the matter is that Scott Martin was a winner, always taking risks in search of equal reward. That risky fishing has led Martin to more than $2 million in earnings, a Forrest Wood Cup win and four Tour-level wins. But the gambles burned him often enough that he never earned AOY. >>> read more
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.
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.
