Berkley Pro Martin Wins Final FLW Event On Champlain

Berkley pro Scott Martin won his third career FLW Tour event at the final stop on the FLW Tour that was held on Lake Champlain this past weekend. Berkley had 6 anglers in the top 10 at the FLW event. Finishing in the top 10 were Scott Martin (1st), Jay Yelas (4th), Dave Lefebre (6th), Clark Wendlandt (7th), Greg Pugh (8th) and Luke Clausen finished tenth. Martin credited much of his victory to Berkley Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon line and the Berkley Powerbait Chigger Craw. "The Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon performed as it always does – perfectly," said Martin. "I fished some isolated rock piles, which can do some damage on an anglers line, but Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon took the beating and hung in there till the end. To get the bite on the chigger craw, I Texas rigged the green pumpkin craw and dragged it through the rocks."These isolated sweet spots, located in Missisquoi Bay, were loaded with largemouth bass hiding in a mix of healthy grass that gave Martin a winning bag of 36–pounds, 4–ounces. With the win Martin's career earnings surpass one million dollars.Berkley Pro Clark Wendlandt also became the first angler to claim three Angler of the Year titles with the FLW Tour. Wendlandt, who earned $25,000 and a Ranger 198VX powered by a 200–horsepower Yamaha outboard for the title, secured the crown on Lake Champlain with 10 bass weighing 28 pounds, 7 ounces over the final two days of the final FLW Tour qualifying event of the season in a race that went down to the last day of the regular season.The $2 million Forrest Wood Cup is scheduled for the Three Rivers in Pittsburgh, Pa., July 30–Aug. 2
