If Aaron Martens wasn't fishing professionally, he'd choose some other exciting profession, he said today during the B.A.S.S. Twitter chat. In fact, he'd like to be president of the United States!

This question was one of 85 shot at him during a rapid-fire Twitter chat. The 2012 Evan Williams Bourbon All-Star Championship winner gave up all kinds of information about himself — including a couple of honey holes that he'd said he would rather have kept to himself!

Below is the full transcript of the chat, lightly edited for grammar and spelling. You can view a photo gallery of his visit to B.A.S.S. headquarters here.

@BASS_Nation Welcome to the B.A.S.S. Twitter chat with @AMartFishing We're very excited to have the All-Star champ here to take your questions. #basschat

 

@AMartFishing Hi everyone! I'm excited to be here, and I'm ready to answer all of your questions.

 

Samantha ‏@SamSeese

@Amartfishing What would you be using/doing at Pickwick next week? First visit. What to expect? Any suggestions?

Aaron Martens ‏@AMartFishing

@SamSeese The lake is in the process of turning over. Bring your topwaters, walking baits, buzzbaits, square-bill crankbaits.

 

Jody White ‏@vtbasser

Dog or cat?

Aaron Martens ‏@AMartFishing

@vtbasser Both. I have a cat, but I like both. Pound for pound, cats are more gnarly than dogs.

 

Jody White ‏@vtbasser

half full of half empty?

Aaron Martens ‏@AMartFishing

@vtbasser Half full. My wife says sometimes!

 

Jody White ‏@vtbasser

Which comes first, confidence or fish? Is confidence overrated?

Aaron Martens ‏@AMartFishing

@vtbasser In general, fish probably come first. You build your confidence after every fish you catch.

 

Jody White ‏@vtbasser

Care to give an arbitrary percentage of how much your practices r influence by OTW learning vs. prior knowledge and research?

Aaron Martens ‏@AMartFishing

@vtbasser It's almost 100% on the water. 

 

Jody White ‏@vtbasser

Favorite color?

Aaron Martens ‏@AMartFishing

@vtbasser I like purple.

 

Jody White ‏@vtbasser

Hawg or lunker?

Aaron Martens ‏@AMartFishing

@vtbasser I say donkey.

 

Jody White ‏@vtbasser

shoe size?

Aaron Martens ‏@AMartFishing

@vtbasser shoe size - 14

 

Jody White ‏@vtbasser

Will you help me finance a Bass Pro Shops on Champlain so we can bring the Opens there?

Aaron Martens ‏@AMartFishing

@vtbasser There's probably cheaper ways to get an Open on Champlain.

 

Matt Wheeler ‏@MattWheeler97

@AMartFishing What is your favorite fall technique or lure?

Aaron Martens ‏@AMartFishing

@MattWheeler97 Probably a topwater walking bait.

 

Marty Ballard ‏@Saints859

@AMartFishing all-time favorite lake/river?

Aaron Martens ‏@AMartFishing

@Saints859 oooo, Lake Falcon in Texas.
