During the summer of 2011, we worked with Steve Quinn, In-Fisherman’s senior editor, on an article about jigworms for the 2012 “Gear Guide.”
A substantial part of the article pivoted around the shaky-head phenomenon. Some it centered upon the shaky-head observations and methods of Aaron Martens of Leeds, Alabama, who competes on the Bassmaster and FLW circuits, as well as several other tourneys such as the U.S. Open at Lake Mead, Nevada.
Across his 13 years as a professional tournament angler, he has garnered 56 top 10 finishes and his name has reigned at the top of the leader board seven times at Bassmaster and FLW events, amassing $2,314,375 in prize money. He earned the Bassmaster angler-of-the-year award in 2005. What’s more, he won the prestigious U.S. Open in 2004, 2005 and 2011.
