Martens on the board

Fish catches seem to be a little slow starting the final day of the Green Bay Challenge. But at this point we do know that Aaron Martens has a 2 1/2-pounder  in the boat.


Lake Michigan has been unusually kind this week to the anglers making the 35-mile run to Little Sturgeon Bay, the north boundary of the tournament waters. At takeoff the water was slicker than it has been all week, making some anglers wonder if it wasn't too calm. Smallmouth bass fishing generally improves with at least some kind of ripple on the water.
