Michigan walleye professional selected for Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame

Mark Martin, the original champ in the walleye world has been elected to the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame located in Hayward, WI. He will go in with the 2015 class.
As a youngster growing up on the west side of the state in Twin Lakes near Muskegon, Martin seemed to begin his younger years attached to a fishing rod.
Martin was even asked to help establish a curriculum at Spring Lake High School for fishing. "It as a pretty cool school. We even had scuba diving," he said.
Located on the shores of the Grand River, kids were bringing fishing rods to school so they could fish dying school breaks. Fishing was a natural subject for school students.
I've had the pleasure of knowing Martin and his family for a number of years. I was invited to his fist ice fishing school on Little Bay de Noc. Since then, he's had many more and showed a lot of anglers how to fish hard water.
Martin is a rarity among the fishing crowd in that he's willing to share where he catches fish, where you should fish, what you should use to make you successful and how to use that equipment.
Mark Martin's selection to the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame is well deserved.
