Martens seems happy with his day

After boating his fifth keeper of the day, Aaron Martens has ducked into a small canal just off the point he has been fishing all morning.

 

James Overstreet, ever searching for the best pictures possible, hopped off our boat and onto Martens' rig. Aaron is about 100 yards from us now, but it appears as if he's using the same technique as earlier — slowly drop shotting and milking this piece of water for all it's worth. He clearly was happy with what he's done so far, indicating as much when sidled up to him let Overstreet on the boat.

 

That heavy 4 1/2-pounder he bagged earlier seems to have eased up any pressure he may have felt and Aaron is confident in this location.
