Two Martins -- Roland and Tommy (not related) -- are among the contenders in this year's BASS Masters Classic. If they make it again next year -- which they probably will -- there could be a third one.
Middle River's Dick Martin, who has won the Maryland Mister BASS title for state BASS Federation competition an unprecedented three times, is on the Maryland State team and soon will be heading for the Connecticut River for the Eastern Divisional Championships. If he wins there, he will join the field for the final qualifying tournament.
A victory in that one would make him one of the five BASS Federation amateur champions nationwide to receive an invitation to the 1992 classic at a site to be announced early next year. It's a long shot, he concedes, but he is known for long stringers of huge bass.
