The Lake Martin Elite Series event was eventually won by fishing shallow, but the field had a variety of tactics. Here we explain how Roy Hawk and Takahiro Omori rose to the top of the leaderboard with a shallow crankbait.
At Lake Martin numerous anglers caught fish that bit right beside the boat. A good lesson during the year when fish are feeding heavily (prespawn, shad spawn, topwater, fall) is to fish your bait all the way to the boat before calling it quits.
The 2018 Bassmaster Elite Series season started at Lake Martin and it featured numerous milestones. Jason Christie hit $1 million in BASS earnings, Takahiro won his 7th event and surpassed $2 million and Gary Klein fished his 400th Bass event.
