BBZ Shout Out Sunday: Greatest American "Fishing" Hero, Roland Martin

Watching someone on TV fishing is one thing, but staying at their house for a week and fishing every day from dawn to dusk is another. I am one very lucky guy to have been able to share the boat with one of the greatest fishermen....ever. This weeks "Shout Out" goes to my good friend Roland Martin.

Roland Martin’s extensive Professional Tournament Angler career includes 20 first-place finishes, 19 second-place finishes, 24 appearances in the BASS Master Classic, and 9 time B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year title. He was inducted into the IGFA, National Fishing, and the Professional Bass Fishing Hall of Fame. For the past three decades, Roland has given viewers the scoop on how to outsmart a variety of game fish on Fishing With Roland Martin, a half hour series on NBC Sports Outdoors. The show features fishing tips and the newest items on the market. Above in the picture is Justin Wolff who films Angler West TV, Myself and Roland Martin.

If you ever get as chance to fish a tournament with Roland, you better jump all over it! This was just between a few friends,  Roland had the fire of a teenager to whoop some butt. Great day on the water by all.

I have been lucky to have filmed with Roland a few times and these are by far some of the best TV shows I have had the opportunity to be a part of!  Thanks Roland.
