Rodman Reservoir Fishing Report 01/17/2016
Well a lot of people have been all over me to find out how things are going on the current Rodman Drawdown, so here’s the report! The fishing is definitely stellar, but quite a bit different than the last Rodman drawdown. the chief difference is the lack of Hydrilla or aquatic weeds in the lake. We were fishing giant Hydrilla lines last drawdown and with the lack of grass, the fishing patterns are COMPLETELY different! We are averaging 50+ bass per trip, with the fewest number caught on a trip being 29 and the most being 90 bass we caught on two separate days! The biggest bass we have boated so far this drawdown is Henry Knight’s 11lb 10ozer! We have boated 53 TrophyCatch Florida eligible bass so far since the drawdown started (8lbs and over) and have been on a heck of a streak lately of consecutive days of bass exceeding 8lbs! The jury is still out whether this will be as productive of a drawdown as the last one but we are sure off to a good start!

Rodman Reservoir Drawdown Report 01/05/2016
It has been quite a drawdown so far! We have been averaging 50+ bass per trip. We have had days where we have boated as many as 90 Rodman Reservoir beauties! The biggest bass boated by my clients since the drawdown began was a gorgeous 11lb 10oz PIG, boated by Henry Knight of Lexington, KY. The hot areas continue to be the old river channel around Orange Springs and the old river channel between Orange Springs and Kenwood.

Lights Out Summer Fishing!! 08/25/2015
Hi Guys! The spectacular summer fishing continues. What is happening right now almost defies logic. Usually strong summer rains = high, red water and slow fishing, but incredibly the fishing is unbelievably and freakishly good!! Guys the bass have been ABSOLUTELY POUNDING IT RIGHT NOW!!!! The fishing is so good, it feels like the drawdown is already here!! We have been catching 35+ bass per trip on short morning trips!! And these are some REALLY great fish! We are catching piles of fat and sassy 6-8lb fish, but have also got fish up to 11lbs in the last few weeks!!!! The incredible bass producing destination that is Rodman Reservoir continues to roll on!! For anyone interested in getting in on the fun, I have several days open in the next couple of weeks!

More Summer Fun AND Some Drawdown Info 08/02/2015
Hi Everybody!! I probably sound like a broken record right now, LOL, but boy are we having some fun this summer!! The fantastic summer fishing continues! We are doing short morning trips this time of year to beat the heat and also avoid the afternoon showers! The fish have continued to cooperate happily and often!! We are still averaging 20-35 fish per trip, and in the last week the bigger fish have started to show up again!! For anyone interested I have a few days open as of now in mid-August. If anyone would like to get out for a few hours, please let me know! Now on to some exciting news!! They have decided to start the drawdown early this year!!!! Instead of starting in mid-November or early December, they are going to start dropping it (conditions permitting) October 1st!!!!!!!!!! So that means there will be an extended drawdown this time around! Instead of being down 2 months, it will be down 3 to 3-1/2 months!!!! For you guys that fished with me last drawdown you know what this means…..INSANELY GOOD FISHING!!!!!! I’m super excited for the upcoming season!!!! So much so that I added a second boat! As they are dropping the water and then raising it back up, sometimes the boat ramps are hard to access due to the fluctuating water levels! So to assure myself and my customers are able to get out there for the whole drawdown, I purchased a 2015 Sea Ark Mud Runner 180 Mud Boat!!!! These are the boats you see on shows like Duck Dynasty, etc. that can go ANYWHERE!!!!They literally can run in virtually no water! And if I can get the wheels of the trailer in the water, I can get her off the trailer and take off! This will also open up areas that we can access during the drawdown that will be impossible for the average angler to get to!!!! So we now have two boating options for my customers!!!! Super excited about the possibilities!!!!!!!!!
