Navionics Pro Spotlight: Mark Martin, Professional Walleye Angler

Mark Martin does a little bit of everything:  guide, captain, fulltime professional walleye angler, speaker, writer and author. In 1990, he earned the nickname of “The Original Champ” by becoming the Professional Walleye Trail world champion and bringing home the highest cash prize in history for a walleye tournament at the time. His professional fishing career spans over thirty years and over 200 tournaments, and in 2014, he was inducted into the Freshwater Fishing Hall Of Fame. 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. Throughout the year, he travels extensively through the US and Canada for tournaments, TV shows, Outdoor Writer events, seminars, and teaching walleye wisdom.  Two ways he does this are by teaching children’s fishing clinics and also by running Mark Martin’s Fishing Vacation School where he and other pro staff spend a weekend teaching amateur anglers tips and tricks for catching walleyes.
