How Aaron Martens gets self-inflicted headaches

Emily Hand@ejhand

With 9 Classic qualifiers being from AL, who has the best shot? You, @theRandyHowell @ChrisLaneFish or @JLeefishing

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Probably @ChrisLaneFish! He knows where the fish are at, and he's been catching them! 

 

Eric Cook@ecookallday

Day4 on St. Clair. My girl and I came out to see you! Any Erie advice as it's my home water?  pic.twitter.com/OK9E0qR6KF

 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Keep your nuts tight! And use sonar there to keep you on the fish. They move there a lot & constantly change.

 

Andy Whitcomb@andywhitcomb

Favorite non-bass species to catch? And why? 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Tuna - because they pull hard and they are fast!  

Andy Whitcomb@andywhitcomb

On "light" line? :-) #tuna

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

On both! There's times you can jack 'em but sometimes it's fun to play them, too. 

 

Doug Noni@doug_noni

For drop shot smallies up north, is really light 4-6lb fluro leaders critical? What is the advantage of a 4-6lb vs. a 12lb leader? 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

It's not reallly critical, it's more presentation. The lighter line is more natural. 

 

Matt Lee@mattleefishing

Has @tommyfrink aka "flesh weasel" ordered pizza or hibatchi since he's moved in? 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Nope! He's getting home cooked meals almost every night. 

If not, he goes in the freezer and gets a burrito. 

Tom Frink@tommyfrink

Those frozen burritos are legit!!

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

You ate the last one. Better go buy some more! 

 

Pete Robbins@fishywriting

Do you think you need a Classic title to cement your legacy in the sport? 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

No, I think multiple seconds do just the same! 

 

Pete Robbins@fishywriting

More importantly, how gnarly is your cat? 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

She'll scratch your eyes out! 

 

Weekend Hooker@Weeknd_Hooker

How does a 7.5lb smallmouth feel compared to a similar largemouth? #StLawrenceRiver

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Meaner. 

 

Matthew Peeler@mbpeeler

I want to know the truth on how bad @AMartFishing out fished @fishinlawyer and @GilleyScott at Eufaula 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

They were doing what worked, and I was trying to expand my horizons. 

Chandler Ray@Chandler_A_Ray

How about I get those settings now @AMartFishing since @fishinlawyer and @GilleyScott got a guided trip on eufaula 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

LOL 

 

brokenAj@bassmasteraj

Have you ever fished lake Havasu? What did you use? 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

I won some West Coast tournaments there. When I fished it it didn't have a lot of grass. My fave bait there is a jig 

 

Ross Porter@rossco_dash47

Best way to get introduced to finesse fishing? #powerfishermanconvert

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Get yourself a really good finesse spinning rod and reel. Spend money there first. Good reel and rod are essential 

 

MercuryMarine@MercuryMarine

What kind of prop are you running on your 250 ProXS (size and pitch)? 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

A 26 Tempest on my 921 @phoenixbassboat. I got up to 78 with two anglers & a full tank of gas! 

 

Stiann Gubitz@SGubitz7

Aaron what would you do if water levels are dropping and water is stained in early summer?

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Better find some an area where the current is focused because the fish will gather there! 

 

Jody White@vtbasser

Classic aside, what tournament are you most looking forward to in 2014?

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

I'm looking forward to Toledo Bend and Table Rock. 

 

Michael Gaydos@Michael_Gaydos

What type of music do you like listening to before a tournament? 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

I like a lot of stuff. It varies but sometimes it's 70s, 80s, jazz, and pretty much anything chill.
