Scott Martin

Professional Angler

When Scott first started fishing the National Bass fishing trail, he was on a hot streak from the word “go.” During his first year of fishing in 1999, he was FLW Tour Co-angler of the Year. In 2000, at his second tournament, he won his first national tour event. Scott has an amazing 34 top-10 finishes on the FLW Tour, with 6 tour wins and $2.5 million in winnings. He is ranked second in all-time money earnings and first in all-time FLW Tour wins. With 16 cup qualifications, he is one of the sport’s most decorated and consistent anglers. Scott also hosts the “Scott Martin Challenge” show on NBC Sports — now in its 11th season.
