will you be fishing the southern opens next year
@jjc8688 Yes, I'm excited! I love the schedule.
@AMartFishing What is your advice to someone who strives to be an Elite Series angler someday?
@JAF24Fishing Work your butt off.
How do you telepath such good energy to your lures when working them?!
@jthaom1_jt I know all my baits intimately.
@AMartFishing if you had to fish one bait or one style of fishing at every event what would it be?
@JAF24Fishing Drop shot.
@larrymccausland Yes I have, my wife made me. My wife and kids don't like it.
Aaron, what is your favorite thing to do, not related to fishing?
@thefishingradar Running and mountain biking, and spending time with my family. I love to hang out with my kids.
@AMartfishing Favorite knot?
@jthaom1_jt A Uni, doubled.
@AMartFishing What skill set do you find most everyday anglers ignoring in their quest to become more efficient on the water?
@WebbAngling Finesse fishing.
I caught over 20 bass on a scrounger this year thanks to you!
@BFalick Shaky fish.
What would be doing for a living if you weren't competitively fishing?
@thefishingradar Something else exciting - I would like to be president of the United States. Would anyone vote for me?
So is Decatur Lake one of your favorite fisheries since you won the All-Star?
@caradclark No. Not really. I like it, but it's not one of my favorites. I have fond memories of it.
@BASS_nation Helen.... Be nice to A-Mart...
@JLeefishing She's being very nice.
@AMartFishing Region with the best/craziest fan?
@jthaom1_jt Louisiana. They're pretty nuts there. Live action!
@AMartFishing Have you been to Japan?
@jthaom1_jt Yes, for 2 weeks 13 years ago. I had the flu the whole time.
what is a good scrounger head setup for fall fishing? mid-tennessee threadfin / gizzard forage.
@simplecircuit Mine is a shaky fish. 3/16 and a 1/4 oz. on 8- to 10-pound Sunline fluoro and a tiny Fluke and Fluke.
@AMartFishing What style and size hook do you use with the 6" Roboworm drop shot?
@FishingForward2 2/0 and 3/0 ReBarb O'Shaugnessy by Roboworm
@THETylerFaggart Tonight? Not a good night. I just got home, no amount of money could talk me out of leaving. Contact me through Facebook to set up a date!
@amartfishing what kind of lures or soft plastics will work best for sight fishing lake toho do you think?
@jjc8688 Tubes are always good.
what is your search bait to find fish at Lake Mead? What bait do you use to find the fish on this lake?
@stigar905 Probably a spinnerbait. Good luck throwing it as fast as I do.
What would you recommend to someone who fishes from a canoe, with no budget for electronics, and has trouble finding the fish?
@InsipidProphet Wear your life vest. I would use a spinning rod with 10-pound SX1 Sunline braid. Multitask with this setup.
@AMartFishing What baits do you keep on your deck in tournaments to get that solid 5 fish limit?
@AMartFishing shaky fish??
@AMartFishing who/what had the biggest influence on your game/fishing?
@jthaom1_jt My mother was my biggest supporter, and my brothers were my biggest influence.
@AMartFishing Bud you need to get upto MN & hit Mille Lacs smallies with us! Would love to show Bass Utopia nation some tricks!
@BassUtopia Someday, hopefully!
@AMartFishing If you ever get up here let us know! I'd be happy to show you around the lake. Best thing going in MN for sure!
#BassChat Bluegrass or rock or false dichotomies?
@vtbasser What? I prefer rock.
What is your favorite fishing memory during your lifetime of fishing?
@thefishingradar Winning the Tri-States with my mom
@AMartFishing What's the best technique for fishing the Harris Chain in January?
@MClayFishing Spawning or getting ready to spawn. Look for them or flip for them. They spawn out in the grass, too.
Do you swim a jig, if so what is your favorite setup?
@DexMFN Probably a 3/8-ounce swim jig with a Skinny Dipper on the back of it.
@AMartFishing Do you run that on fluoro or braid? I use 40lb braid to 20lb fluoro with albright, on a 7' MH fast rod.
@DexMFN Most of the time I either go straight fluoro or straight braid, and I use a uni-to-uni knot if I use braid to fluoro
@AMartFishing Ok, thanks a lot! Congrats on your recent All-Stars win!
@AMartFishing Im from RI and plan on going back to Castaic again. Other than drop shot what's the secret there mid summer?
@LouisFalcone Mid-summer, good luck. Fish suspend, chasing shad. Light line finesse techniques are productive.
@AMartFishing it was a tough day there. Nothing of any size, did catch a nice surprise smallie. What's the best time to fish Castaic?
