About Grand Fishing Report

Ivan Martin

Founder – Grand Fishing Report

The Grand Lake Fishing Report was started 18 years ago as a way to help local fishermen and those planning a fishing trip to Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees get the most current Grand Lake fishing reports.

Guide Ivan Martin and web developer Bud Gammell partnered to give interested anglers the most current up to date lake fishing info. Since then, Bud and Ivan have passed away but their vision for Grand Fishing Report lives on.

In 2014 Jeff Williams (OlePops.com) the Grand River Dam Authority and several other sponsors stepped up to redesign and streamline the report.

Thanks to all the loyal users and don’t forget to keep checking the report!

I grew up fishing here on Grand Lake and have very fond memories of dock, bank and boat fishing here as very young boy. At 18 I bought my first “real boat” and started guiding for Bass and Crappie. As my business progressed, I started offering guide trips for very large reservoir Blue Catfish and Spoonbill (Paddlefish).

In 2007 as my fishing career progressed, my wife (Patricia) and I started the Team Catfish brand of catfishing tackle. Within a few years the Team Catfish had became very successful and that allowed Jeff to develop several other Nationally recognized sporting goods brands. In December 2017 Outdoor BrandZ merged with Wohlai Outdoors in Claremore Oklahoma. Jeff still devlopes products, creates media content and works on key account sales.
