Aaron Martens makes the move to Phoenix Boats

Phoenix Boats president Gary Clouse announced today that Elite Series pro Aaron Martens has made the move to Phoenix Boats. "Aaron is obviously one of the biggest names in bass fishing and will be a great asset in our marketing efforts," said Clouse. Martens will be fishing in the 2011 Bassmaster Classic in New Orleans in a Phoenix 721 Pro XP as well as the 2011 Bassmaster Elite Series and FLW Tour.

"Most people who have been around me know that focus and attention to detail is very important to me," said Martens. "After seeing the factory, the boat design and their approach to construction, I know the folks at Phoenix feel the same way I do about attention to detail.

I have not had the confidence in my boat in a long time that I do now!" "Martens brings a very impressive resume to the table," said Clouse. "We are excited to have a person with his abilities on the Phoenix team.

Martens has qualified for 12 Bassmaster Classics (including three second-place finishes) has five total B.A.S.S. wins and a Bassmaster Angler of the Year title. He is currently ranked eighth on the Bass Fan World Rankings and has more than $2 million in winnings. In addition, he has won the U.S. Open two times.
