Martin has been fishing since the age of four, introduced to the sport by his father. Originally Martin concentrated his efforts on coarse fishing but from the age of 14, the sea beckoned and ever since, Martin has been predominately sea fishing.
The majority of Martins fishing is done from his own boat "Blueprint", when the weather is too rough for the boat Martin has been known to head to the shore, wading in search of bass. Martins real fishing passion is lure fishing but if conditions dictate otherwise, he is just as happy live baiting or drifting mackerel strips in search of big turbot.
Martin also fishes selected tournaments in the UK and aboard. Martin is the most recent winner of the Brighton Pollack Comp and of the Big Tuna Tournament on the East Coast of Florida.
His most memorable catches include a 15lb 3oz bass and a 20lb 13oz pollack, both of which were caught on Martins own boat using his favourite fishing method, lures.
