Martens uses signature move

10:14 am CDT, Jun 24, 2012 | By Steve Wright

James Overstreet and I just witnessed a textbook Aaron Martens move. He used his electronics to target a bass and then put a drop shot Roboworm right in its face to entice a strike. It was a smallmouth bass, the first we've seen him catch in the Black River, and it went in his livewell. However, it helped only by an ounce or two.

 

Martens said he's got only 10 pounds. He has probably caught 20 bass today. The action has picked up again in the last 15 minutes, but all the others he's caught in that time weren't even close to being keepers.
