Stu Martel

NAME: Stu Martel
HOME: Northbrook, IL
HOME LAKE: Fox Chain, IL & Lake Geneva, WI

SOMETHING FANS MAY NOT KNOW: I have been fishing the state of Wisconsin heavily for over 25 years. Additionally, I fish across the entire nation and enjoy every minute of it. What started as fun has turned into a successful endeavor competing on national and local tournament trails. I have passion not just for tournament angling but for all levels of fishing. I developed a love for sharing it with others and not keeping my knowledge to myself. In the tournament world I have earned many first-place finishes as well as other less notable finishes.
