FLW is following Tour pro Casey Martin during his rookie season as he makes the transition from co-angler to pro in pursuit of his dream of becoming a professional angler. The second episode of ‘Circuit Breaker’ joins Martin on the road in Cullman, Alabama. Martin started the season out strong by finishing sixth at Lake Okeechobee, will momentum be on his side for the second stop on Lewis Smith Lake? Follow along as FLW documents each stop of the 2013 season with Martin.


Smith Lake, AL2

Smith Lake



“It’s almost impossible to find water deeper than 5 feet at Okechobee; whereas if you’re at 3 feet off the bank at Smith, you’re sittin’ in 35 or 40 feet of water. So Smith Lake is the polar opposite – a true 180 from Lake Okechobee. We went from a dark, dingy, shallow lake, to a clear deep lake.”
