Walleye and the Forage Factor
Harnessing the Big Bite
Capt. Mark Martin is the 1990 Professional Walleye Trail WORLD CHAMPION. Mark won the first Tournament of Champions held at International Falls, Minnesota, netting him $30,000, the highest cash prize in history at that time for a walleye tournament. In addition to that, Mark has qualified for 18 Professional Walleye Trail World Championships. He is the only person to qualify for every P.W.T. Championship and fish every P.W.T. Tournament, achieving over 43 “top ten” finishes in his pro-walleye career.
As of 2001, Mark was awarded Normark/Rapala “Angler of The Year” and was the winner of the Chamberlain, and Mobridge S.D. P.W.T. events, he holds the position of eight-place all-time money winner on the Walleye Trail. Today Mark is one of the owners of the AIM Tournament Series and sits on the board of directors planning out the AIM Tournaments for the future of Professional Walleye Fishing. Mark is also a fishing promoter who travels extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada doing tournaments, TV Shows, Outdoor Writer Events, Seminars, and teaching walleye wisdom – especially leading kids fishing clinics. In his home state of Michigan, he’s been called “Mr. Walleye at Night,” averaging more than 600 walleye per season in the 6 to 12-pound range. The key to Mark’s success is a history of walleye fishing developed over three generations of Martins.
