Martin rockets up the standings

Scott Martin came to the weigh-in stage yesterday with a limit that hit 10 pounds, 9 ounces. It left him in 80th place. But Martin acknowledged that Lake Guntersville is the place where your fortunes can easily shift in a day. It took only 2 1/2 hours this morning for Martin to do that. He’s right at the 20-pound mark on the day with a 6-2, a 5-0 and a 4-4 in his 5-bass limit. Martin’s two-day total of 30-8 has him in 3rd place at 8 a.m.
