Match 1 Single Elimination - Lake Okeechobee

Host Site: Roland and Mary Ann Martin’s Resort and Marina. Winners advance to the UMF Quarterfinals on Wilson Lake in Florence, Alabama.

Jeff Kriet vs. Anthony Gagliardi

In 2012 Anthony Gagliardi rode a hot streak of Northern Michigan smallmouth to claim the UMF title belt. Today, he begins his quest to repeat. Standing in his way is defending Ultimate Match Fishing All Star Champion Jeff Kriet. These two past champions will square off against each other on the legendary Big O, Lake Okeechobee, in a winner-take-all slugfest of defending UMF Champions!

Randall Tharp vs. Stephen Browning

2013 Forrest Wood Cup Champion Randall Tharp once sacked over 100 pounds of bass on Lake Okeechobee to run away with an FLW tour event. No wonder he calls the Big O his favorite lake. Elite Series Pro Stephen Browning couldn’t care less about a home field advantage. This Arkansas pro is ready to take on anyone, anywhere, anytime and he’ll get his chance in Match 2 of Ultimate Match Fishing!

Jacob Wheeler vs. Harold Allen

Getting tagged with the label “phenom” before your 21st birthday could be stressful for some people. For FLW Pro Jacob Wheeler, it was an incentive. Not only did he become the youngest angler ever to win the BFL All-American, he became the youngest angler to score the FLW’s top prize, the Forrest Wood Cup. Today he’ll make his Ultimate Match Fishing debut against a legendary angler who already had 10 Bassmaster Classic under his belt before Wheeler was born. It’s grizzled Texas veteran Harold Allen going head-to-head with phenom Jacob Wheeler on Lake Okeechobee!

Stetson Blaylock vs. Jason Quinn

Just ask FLW pro Stetson Blaylock why he fishes professionally and he’ll tell you “it’s the competition”. Since his FLW Rookie of the Year title in 2009, Blaylock has been a threat to win any event he enters, and today he’ll get all the competition he can handle from Elite Series veteran and 6 time Classic qualifier Jason Quinn. One of these anglers will move on to the quarterfinals… the other will head home. Lake Okeechobee is ready!

Brent Ehrler vs. Ish Monroe

If you’re looking for Brent Ehrler on any legit list of top bass pros, check the top.. In just a few short years Brent Ehrler has rocketed up the all time money winner list in professional fishing and is quickly running out of space in his trophy room. Today, he’ll take on fellow Californian, Elite Series Pro Ish Monroe. This self described human highlight reel would like nothing better than to send Brent Ehrler packing. So which of these left coast superstars will be left out of the quarterfinals?

Roland Martin vs. Scott Martin

Icon. Legend. Superstar. There’s no limit to the accolades that fit Hall of Famer Roland Martin. He’s won everything there is to win in the sport of professional bass fishing… many of them multiple times.  But the thing he may be most proud of is his son Scott, who as it turns out is also pretty handy with a rod and reel. Today father and son will spend a little quality time fishing on their home water, Florida’s Lake Okeechobee. At stake? Just a little friendly competition and the final spot in the Ultimate Match fishing quarterfinals!
