How Aaron Martens gets self-inflicted headaches

Stiann Gubitz@SGubitz7

What is the best frequency to put your humminbird on when dropshotting? 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

I keep my chart speed about 5 and my sensitivity between 10 and 15. 

 

Brody Layher@Bro_dLayher

What's the key to your drop shot success? 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Knowing it's effectiveness and having confidence in it. I've spent a lot of time trying to master it. 

 

Arens, Thomas E.@tarens_12

When to use strait up, light fluorocarbon line versus braided line with fluorocarbon leader when dropshotting? 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Use straight fluorocarbon, it's safer. The advantages of the other are castability and hookups. 

 

Bass Utopia@BassUtopia

If you also secure your 1st Classic title this year do you plan to join forces w/ Greg Norman and start a vineyard?

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

That sounds fun!

 

Monster Fishing@MonsterFishing

What is the most realistic Mayfly imitation lure you know of? There seems to be a lack of options.

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Please let me know when you find it! I like the @megabassusa Parachute Bug, though!

 

Joseph P. Durham, Jr@fishinlawyer

What size/brand of hooks do you recommend for flipping heavy mats

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

I love the new Gamakatsu heavy cover flipping hook, I'd probably use a 3/4.

 

Billy Egan@BillyEgan3

What do you miss the most about fishing Southern California trout fed lakes? 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

The big bass.

 

jim r@jamesras84

What should be the focus as far as structure/cover?

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Where it's located and if there is bait by it!

 

Chandler Ray@Chandler_A_Ray

How do you feel about Seminole and have you been there?

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Last time I was there was the last @bass_nation event in 2003. It's a healthy lake & has a lot of nice fish in it.

 

Chandler Ray@Chandler_A_Ray

How do you like the new mega bass series rods?

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

I love them.

 

Robin Howell@rarahowell

What runner are you on the upcoming Ragnar Relay race? Also will you be running along the banks of Lake Mead?

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

I hope so but my captain @ericlopez98 likes to surprise us when we get there! 

 

Billy Egan@BillyEgan3

What is your favorite event to fish each year and why?

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

The Classic because the stakes are high & you get the most time to prepare.

 

neil farlow@FarlowNeil

Do you think there should be a rule where no info (spots) should be shared at all from outsiders (locals)?

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

I would love that!

 

Joseph P. Durham, Jr@fishinlawyer

Rumor is you have a big hunting trip coming up.  Are you ready to chase a big whitetail?

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Yes, but I'm most looking forward to my daughter, Jordan, hunting for the first time!

Joseph P. Durham, Jr@fishinlawyer

@GilleyScott Mark this down -- Jordan is going to get her first deer or she will sling a lot of bullets trying. 

 

Eddie Costello@eddiec6696

Best fall bait when the bite is tough, for lakes and ponds.

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

One of my favorites overall is probably a jig.

 

Stiann Gubitz@SGubitz7

How do you rig a dropshot, more texas, wacky rig or how? 

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

It's about 50/50. It's all pretty equal over the season!

 

Frank J. Lillig@_FishermanFrank

Favorite shaky head and dropshot Roboworms for fall fishing and into winter fishing? Color, size

Aaron Martens@AMartFishing

Favorite is 6-inch ST in the fall and winter in Aaron's Magic, MM3, bold bluegill & prism shad
