He has won everything that the FLW tour has to offer. On top of that, he is the son of the legendary Roland Martin. Scott Martin is the real deal!
Our buddy, Dan Johnston of St. Croix says he'd like to have a dollar for every time he has been asked by someone how they can get into the fishing industry. After this, I guess we owe him a buck!

Steve and Dave take a few minutes to talk about the first 100 episodes of the show and discuss what's coming up in the future.
Our 100th show! Who would have believed it! The over/under line was set at 25 when we started. I sure hope you all bet the "over" on us! We guarantee that we are not going to stop, either. Why stop when you can have fun talking to people like walleye superstar Korey Sprengel every week? Korey is on an incredible hot streak and he really gives us some incredible walleye info on this show. We talk to the big guy!

Dan Bertalan is a media mogul from "Into the Outdoors" who is getting kids involved in fishing by the thousands. Ryan Teach runs the factory store at the St. Croix world headquarters and he has a very special invitation for everyone.
If we have Bryan Thrift on We Fish ASA every time he cashes a six-figure check from winning a FLW tournament, how long will it take before we have to change the name of the show to "We Fish Bryan Thrift?" Jesse Simpkins, the Director of Marketing for St. Croix checks in. They make the best rods on Earth, you know. Kellie Ralston is the Florida Fishery Policy Director for the American Sportfishing Association. Wow! That is a mouthful! She updates us on the Everglades and the Keys.

She is Jen Ripple, the founder and publisher of DUN Magazine, an International women's fly fishing magazine that empowers women but does not ignore men. This lady is a total fishing machine. Dan Johnston from St. Croix stops by to talk about getting more people into our sport and the fly fishing class he is holding to raise money for a special cause. This fly fishing fund raiser is May 12, at the Liberty Center Pond in North Liberty, Iowa.

This guy is the Baron of Baits, the Titan of Tackle, the Lord of Lures – he is Ken Duke from Fishing Tackle Retailer Magazine. He knows what is going on in our business.
Isn't it fitting that the best fishing show on radio or Internet in the entire U.S.A. is joined by the best fisherman in the entire U.S.A.? Our guest is a man we are proud to call a friend, the one-and-only Al Lindner. Al checks in from on the water chasing gigantic sturgeon on the Rainy River. Will he hook one while we are on the air?
