Martens moving up

10:59 am CDT, Jun 23, 2012 | By Steve Wright

The change in locations paid off pretty quickly for Aaron Martens. He just landed a 2 3/4-pounder that allowed him to cull one that was just under 2 pounds. He thinks he's got 14 pounds now, so we had his weight underestimated earlier.


Martens has one that's close to 5 pounds in the livewell, and his smallest one now is 2 1/4 pounds. He's feeling pretty good all of a sudden.


And he will undoubtedly go back to his main spot again today after resting it for awhile.


Martens thinks 15 pounds a day this weekend will have him right where he wants to be.
