Martin’s Final Prep for the 2019 Tour

Getting mentally prepared is the biggest thing for me. There’s a process, and it has to be done. Everything has to be ready so when I roll into Texas to start practice for Sam Rayburn on Jan. 6 I know exactly where every piece of tackle is stowed and exactly how every piece of equipment works and exactly what I need to accomplish to support my sponsors and keep my own media  projects on schedule.

Lake Champlain Top 5 Patterns Day 2

Day two of the Walmart FLW Tour event presented by General Tire on Lake Champlain was calm and slick compared to day one’s breezy conditions. As a result, leader Scott Martin had to fall back on some smallmouths to subsidize his largemouth plan. The calm conditions gave the smallmouth specialists premium opportunity to hunt bedding fish as much as 15 deep with their eyes. Yet, largemouths continue to be a big factor in four of the top five pros’ limits. Here is a closer look at how second through fifth fared. READ MORE »

Lake Champlain Top 5 Patterns Day 1

Smallmouths or largemouths? That’s the ubiquitous question every time the Walmart FLW Tour visits Lake Champlain. And on day one of the 2016 Tour finale on Champlain, which is presented by General Tire, that question again toyed with anglers’ tournament strategies. From the looks of the day-one top five, both species are represented, with the advantage given to largemouths. Scott Martin holds the early lead with an all-largemouth catch of 22 pounds, 5 ounces. Behind him, there are two mixed bags and then two more all-largemouth bags. READ MORE »
