(As posted on BassFan.com) Aaron Martens was surprised at the number of bass boats at Lake Biwa in Japan when he and other members of the Megabass pro staff visited the renowned Japanese lake during their overseas trip last week. The reigning Bassmaster Elite Series Angler of the Year was also surprised at the lack of bass he and his fellow pro staffers caught.

“We came up to this flat and there must’ve been 100 boats within sight,” he said. “It was crazy. There were 15 times more boats than I thought there’d be. And there were a lot of 19- and 20-foot bass boats, too.

“The fishing was tough. I caught six bass, but nothing big. I was surprised at how few bass we caught.”
