Scott Martin, 43, A Married Man; Glimpse On Family Moments
Growing near a lake, fishing can be one of the best ways of entertaining yourself; especially for kids. Fishing not only teaches a kid to have patience but also helps him in bonding with the elders as it is seldom done without the supervision of adults.
However, choosing fishing as a career path is rare these days. Individual fishermen are being overshadowed as big corporations are engaging themselves in the large-scale fishery. Nevertheless, Scott Martin, a Professional angler, has become successful in making a career out of the ancient human occupation.
Well, fishing is a profession which requires a lot of time and enthusiasm. And in all the hastiness of catching a big fish, has Scott been able to hold on to his family life? Has his successful career hampered his private life in some way? Let's find out!
Scott's Life: Wife And Children
Scott Martin, 43, may not be very open about his personal life, but he evidently shares some glimpse of family moments through his Instagram account.
The host of the TV show 'Scott Martin Challenge' is married to Suzzane Martin, but the date of their marriage is kept under wraps.

The pair has four children from their marriage: two sons, and two daughters. Scott's family not only supports him in his line of work but also involves themselves whenever they get time.
For the occasion of Christmas last year, Scott took his family to a lake where they intended to involve in fishing. Scott even shared a family picture on Instagram, quoting:
Merry Christmas Y’all from the entire Martin Family. #christmasinthewoods

Scott and his wife recently celebrated her birthday in Mykonos, Greece on 25 August 2018.
Scott even shared a birthday post to Suzanne pointing out all the seducing qualities of his beloved wife.
"Happy Birthday to my Beautiful, Exquisite, Stunning Wife..or should I say Hot, Smoking, Dime, Banging Sexy Momma..all I do know is that I am Blessed Beyond measure! I Love You..@suzanne_martin"
He also loves traveling with his family and most recently in August 2018, Scott along with his wife and four children visited the Gulf of Mexico where the family shared some private time together.
The passion for fishing runs in the blood of Martin's family as Scott is not the first in his family to make fishing a career. His father, Ronald Martin is also a professional sports fisherman.
Scott inherited Ronald's love of fishing at the age of 12 when he first caught a 10-pound bass on Lake Okeechobee with his father. And now, it seems like Scott has found his daughter, Hillary as a suitable heir for the profession.
In an image on Scott's Instagram, Hillary can be seen flaunting a giant bass that she caught earlier. The picture quoted:
What a Blessed Day! My Hilary caught this Giant (9.1) today sight fishing with me on the Harris Chain. We filmed an SMC for Discovery Channel airing next month..Can’t wait for you to see it@mysterytacklebox @brpevinrude #bigbass#hilarywithonel #bassfishing#fatherdaughtertime #takeakidfishing

A profession where job satisfaction can be derived is hard to find these days. But with the love and support of the family, Scott is living a dream life and is successful in getting kicks out of his career.
Scott Martin was born in Clewiston, Florida on 9 October 1974. Although he has been involved in fishing from a young age, his professional career began in 1999.
Scott has participated in several FLW Tours: Professional Bass Tournament Fishing, where he battles against prominent anglers in various locations around the world. He was even crowned as the Forrest Wood Cup Champion in 2011.
His show, The Scott Martin challenge has also won Scott two Golden Moose awards in 2018. In the meantime, Scott is preparing himself to compete in the 2018 Forrest Wood Cup to be held at Lake Ouachita. The winning prize includes a cash of $300,000. If Scott succeeds to win this competition, he will be the only person to have received the award twice.
Though the exact figures of his net worth remain confined, his career earnings of over $2 million have undoubtedly helped him accumulate substantial net worth. Further, he also earns nearly $120000 annually from YouTube alone, so any financial matter is probably not an issue for him.
