Capt. Mark Martin is the 1990 Professional Walleye Trail WORLD CHAMPION. Mark won the first PWT Tournament of Champions held at International Falls, Minnesota netting him $30,000.00 - the highest cash prize in history for a walleye tournament at that time. As a result, it has earned him the distinction of being the ''Original Champ".
Today Mark works hard as a fishing promoter and travels extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada. He participates in tournaments, TV Shows, Outdoor Writer Events, Seminars, and teaching walleye wisdom - especially leading kids fishing clinics. He also has published various books and videos to help walleye aficionados get more 'eyes in the net.
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.
Mark is constantly working on perfecting established techniques and developing new ways to catch walleye. He also works at finding new and interesting spots to bring the media walleye fishing so as better to educate and inform the country’s walleye fishing public.
