Angler Spotlight – Stu Martel

Angler Spotlight - Here is where you get to be introduced to the inaugural group of anglers fishing the NPFL!

Home: Northbrook, IL – Married 25 years with 2 sons, ages 16 & 19. Family comes first… love them very much.
Home Lakes: 2 of them – Fox Chain of Lakes, Antioch IL and Lake Geneva WI. Two very different lakes for sure.
Occupation: Contractor.
Started Fishing tournaments: 2002 Been fishing all my life.

Looking forward to NPFL: Extremely Proud to be part of “The League”. Excited for some new adventures. Looking forward to meeting and competing against a bunch of young guns and seasoned anglers. Going to be a great show no matter what.

Cool facts:
1) NPAA #951 checking in!
2) When it comes to tournament fishing my attitude is “Fish Forward”!
3) I’m still unsettled with how quickly the Alabama Rig got banned at the time of its debut back in 2013?
3) My Idols are Babe Winkelman, Rick Clunn, Bill Dance and Roland Martin.
4) Not a fan of anglers wearing short shorts. Lets stop that right now!

Sponsors: Twin Lake Marine, Phoenix boats, Mercury Marine, Scum Frog, Net Bait, Mustang Survival, T-H Marine, S&D Enterprises, Inc, Firestone Building Products, Owens Corning Building Products and major support from my Wife and 2 Sons!2
