Had a recent club tournament on Rodman Reservoir. Everyone struggled to get bit. Those who had planned to lock out into the river were unable due to excessive vegetation in the barge canal. Since we were all "stuck" at Rodman, most anglers, of those who even caught fish, only weighed 2 fish. There were only 2 anglers that weighed in a limit and many anglers did not weigh a fish. There was a front rolling in that likely hurt things. We have another tournament there in December and hopefully the weather will steady and we will all do better. At very least, maybe all that cabbage will blow out of what are normally fishable areas.

Man what a week of fishing it has been!! The pre-spawn is in full effect and the fishing right now is EASILY the best it has been in 2014!! The recent trips have been averaging between 40-55 fish per trip with most being done about noon!! Yesterday I had Jack Huddleston and friends in for a trip that ended about noon. They caught 54 bass and had 3 beautiful fish that went 7lb 1oz, 7lb 8oz and a TrophyCatch Florida 8lb 3ozer!!!! The 8lb 3ozer will get Mr. Huddleston $100 in gift cards from the TrophyCatch Florida program. Then today I had Jared Jones and friends from US Pipe and Steel Fabrication in for a two boat trip. So I brought in my cousin and guide Justen Moore from Fish-Orlando and they boated 35 beautiful fish. We got just a little more lucky in my boat as Jared Jones and Allen Harris boated 38 beautiful bass topped by Allenâ€™s 7lber and a GORGEOUS 10lb 8ozer!!!! This bass will get Mr. Harris $150 in prizes from TrophyCatch Florida!!!! This fish was huge with a lot of room to fill out still! Caught 2-3 months from now, full of eggs, could easily have topped the 12lb mark!!!! Visit our Facebook page and â€œLike" it for more pics and info.
