Martens on the board with a lunker

In a tournament where the big bass has been a 4-13 one day and two 5-3s the next, Aaron Martens got off to a hot start Saturday. He landed a bass that weighed 4 1/2 pounds, maybe a little more, at 6:35.

He is fishing in a small canal, near a "No Wake" buoy. It's less than a five-minute boat ride from the launch site.
