A strange scene for Martens

1:30 pm CDT, Sep 23, 2012 | By Steve Wright

For the first time today, Aaron Martens is fishing a bank that has no observers standing on it. He's left the Nelson Park Marina area, gone south under Lost Bridge and pulled up to a tree-lined bank in Basin #1. The move immediately paid off with a keeper, but it was barely over 14 inches, so Martens didn't waste any time seeing if it could help him by an ounce or two. He tossed it back.


Although the background has changed, his pattern has not; he's casting to riprap-lined banks.

Martens said he's still got one small fish in his livewell, but the others are decent, in addition to the one lunker.
