September 9th Qualifier Rescheduled To November

Posted by admin on September 5, 2017


In anticipation of Hurricane Irma we have decided to re-schedule this weekend’s Roland Martin Marine Center’s Qualifier #3 to November 4th, 2017. Our first priority is the safety of our anglers and families. Your time is best spent preparing for the storm and we wanted to make sure your focus was on your needs and not fishing.

If you have registered and paid already it will be transferred to the October event automatically. If you have a room reservation please call to cancel and rebook @ 863-983-3151.

If you or someone you know have any storm damage please look into the services of one of our own (Jonathan Farmer Public Adjuster) @ 954-297-9594. Let him deal with the insurance companies to get the most out of your claim.


Below are some tips from Johnathan:

Before the storm you should walk around your house or business and video, both inside and outside. This one may veer off, as they sometimes do, but just in case, this will eliminate the argument from the insurance companies that damage was pre-existing. Also keep your policy info together for easy access. If this does hit, the response time will not be great for most, so take pictures of any damage that occurs. This is your best ammunition for getting things settled, without too much aggravation. Make sure your prep is done early, and be ready for no power for an extended amount of time.

If you have additional questions, please contact usBe prepared and be safe!

CLEWISTON, FL – The highest paying team tournament trail in Florida continues to grow following a record number of boats for the July Qualifier along with a new sponsor,

“My dad brought me to the The Roland Martin Marina when I was ten and I’ve been coming back ever since,” said owner Josh Roller. “We’re humble and proud to team up with the successful tournament trail to help out with exposure and be a part of the scene.”

Launching December 31, 2016, is focused 100% on the Bass Boat market. Working with dealers as well as individuals, their expanded exposure and personal attention with each individual listing is what sets them apart.

“With other boat listing companies offering limited platforms, mainly just their website, we saw the need for a bigger and better platform for sellers and buyers that was more updated,” said Roller. “By combining a web presence with the power of social media, we've taken it to the next level by offering a better buying and selling experience that you just don’t find with single platform listings. With more detailed marketing at work, sellers benefit from increased traffic while users experience an overall better buying experience. When it comes to the bass boat market, no one does it better. That’s all we do and we do it better than anybody else. And the fact that you get all this added value at a more competitive price makes the decision even easier.” 

Listings on are also showcased on Facebook and Instagram offering more exposure and information for the buyers and sellers.

Plans for the future include a new expanded website along with additional social media channels to take the buying and selling experience even further.
