DENVER, Colo. – Team TroKar is getting more national exposure than ever with a new wrapped boat and truck on the FLW Tour. Scott Martin, a TroKar Pro since 2010, will be hitting the road and the water this year sporting a new Title sponsor with Lazer TroKar hooks.
“We enjoy working with Scott and he has been invaluable in helping us develop some of the new TroKar styles currently in our line up,” stated Chris Russell, Marketing Director for Lazer TroKar. “Having Scott fishing in the TroKar wrapped boat on the FLW Tour and on the 'Scott Martin Challenge' is exciting for us as we grow our one of a kind brand. Scott does such a great job with fans around the U.S. and world, and we are lucky to have him on our Team.”
“TroKar hooks are simply the sharpest hooks on the market. Since switching exclusively to TroKar, they have been an integral part in my top finishes on the Potomac River in 2012 and winning the Forrest Wood Cup in 2011,” stated Scott. “In fact, I fished the entire event on the Potomac River with just three TroKar hooks, I never had to switch out and I never lost a fish. The points on those hooks are so good, so durable, I know every fish I hook comes to the boat.”
In his first year of fishing Scott was awarded the 1999 FLW Tour Co-Angler of the Year title. In only his second event as a pro in 2000, Scott won his first National Tour event with a purse of $100,000.00. Since then he has amassed six FLW wins including claiming the 2011 Forrest Wood Cup. Scott has fished his way to an amazing 27 top-10 finishes on the FLW Tour, with 6 tour wins and 2.1 million in winnings. Scott Martin is ranked second in all-time money earnings and first in all-time FLW Tour wins. With 12 Cup qualifications under his belt, he has proven himself as one of the sports most decorated and consistent anglers.
In 2005, Scott followed his father’s footsteps in outdoor programming when he started the “Scott Martin Challenge" airing on NBC Sports. Now in season nine, the show has gained a large following of fans and is one of the highest rated outdoor programs on air today. The show is a fast paced, high quality fishing show that has Scott fishing against some of the world’s best anglers. In conjunction with the television medium, Scott has become one of the leaders in the outdoor social media world with thousands of fans and subscribers.
When Scott is not traveling around the world fishing tournaments, promotions, filming or instructing, he is spending time with his family. Scott has been blessed with a wonderful wife (Suzanne) and four beautiful children (Jacob, Reed, Hilary and Amelia.) They spend time traveling and enjoying the outdoors together.
