Scott Martin Comes Out Victorious at the FLW Tour Event on Potomac River!
Scott Martin turned in a dominating performance this past weekend to win the FLW Tour event held on the Potomac River. The Team Evinrude angler posted a total weight of 66 pounds, 6 ounces which was good enough for Martin to claim his fifth overall FLW Tour victory. Fellow Team Evinrude angler Justin Lucas finished in second place with 66 pounds, 3 ounces.
Martin pulled a rare feat on the FLW Tour by leading the tournament all four days. Other anglers chipped away at his lead, most notably Justin Lucas who made an impressive comeback after finishing in 90th place after day one. Lucas quickly shot up the leader board over the next three days, but ultimately came up just 3 ounces short of earning his first ever FLW Tour victory.
“This week on the Potomac and in any four day tournament I’m constantly making decisions, but one thing I never have to consider is the dependability of my engine,” said Martin. “My Evinrude E-TEC is a true confidence builder. I win in part because I can make long runs quickly and efficiently in all types of water and weather.”
Martin and Lucas were joined on the leader board by fellow Team Evinrude angler Bryan Thrift who finished in sixthplace at 62 pounds, 8 ounces; seventhplace finisher Clark Wendlant weighed in at 61 pounds, 11 ounces; and Ron Shuffield who rounded out the top 10 and bagged 61 pounds, 4 ounces.
“Congratulations to Scott Martin, who continues to prove he’s one of the best anglers on tour, and to Justin Lucas on an inspiring comeback,” said Krista Heidgerken, Senior Communications Specialist for Evinrude. “Overall Team Evinrude performed great on the Potomac, and we’re looking forward to another exciting tournament in a few weeks on Kentucky Lake.”
