Marty has over 34 years of experience on the water, having chased fish of all sizes. Once a serious tournament angler, he is now a family man. Captain Marty has successfully participated in B.A.S.S.

He was a state champion in BP's very first CastingKids competition in 1991, and at the age of 13, he was the youngest sponsored tournament angler by companies such as Gambler Boats, STORM Lures, Versitex Fishing Rods, and several other tackle manufacturers.
