Meet Our Founders 

Scott Martin


Professional Angler Scott Martin, son to legendary Roland and Mary Ann Martin grew up on the waters of Lake Okeechobee where he first learned how to fish. He recognized that the lake was not just the lifeblood of his families roots here in Florida, but for many other fellow anglers and business owners around the lake, residents in South Florida who depend on it for water supply, and the Florida Everglades. Therefore, Scott co-founded Anglers for Lake Okeechobee (AFLO) after recognizing that a voice for Lake Okeechobee’s health and restoration was desperately needed.

Ramon Iglesias


Ramon is a lifelong resident of Clewiston, FL and has been the General Manager at Roland & Mary Ann Martin Marina & Resort for the past 14 years. As he grew up with Lake Okeechobee in his backyard, he understands the importance of her health and has become a passionate advocate for Lake Okeechobee and its liquid heart. His dedication to restoring the health of Americas second largest freshwater lake is the reason he co-founded Anglers for Lake Okeechobee.
