I hadn't fished Rodman for a few months so I figures I would give it a try. What a mistake. Launched out of Kenwood which was nice and clear. No vegetation. Drifted across the canal into the stumps with no issues. Wind was out of the NE so it was an easy drift. Made it to the south shore line when I decided to work my way back. Picked up the biggest Bluegill I ever caught. Then the problems. I got hung up on stump after stump. The water had just enough chop to make visibility bad and being it is down about 4 or 5 feet it sucked. I ended up breaking my TM prop and shear pin and at times thought I would never get back in the canal. Finally did after having to power off numerous times with my outboard. Didn't like taking a chance of tearing that up. Motored up the channel to the barge canal. BIG stumps sticking out of the water in the canal. Fished the BC for a few hours with no luck. With as much boat traffic Rodman gets I can't believe the state doesn't at least attempt to remove the big stumps from the main canal. Very dangerous!

Gotta share some great fishing news!! Well with Rodman in great shape I decided to have some fun and take some customers to some other bodies of water and see how it went and BOY am I glad I did!!! I had my long lost cousin Ron Duelley in for 3 days of fishing and decided to take him over to The Suwanee River. Having not been there for a good while I wasnâ€™t sure what to expect? Well all I can say is it was well worth the drive!! In 3 days we caught 171 bass including a GORGEOUS 10lb 10ozer!!!! When the water is right there it can be some spectacular fishing!!!! Then I had John Luce in for a days fishing and he wanted to revisit memory lane, so we took a trip over to Lake Lochloosa. I tried an area that back in the day, used to be lights out this time of year and much to my surprise the fish were hungry and willing!! It was like a step back in time as John and friend boated 85 bass to 8lbs!! This used to be my grandfatherâ€™s favorite lake to guide on, man I can see why!! We have been hitting these different bodies of water for the last few weeks off and on as you can see from the pictures on my Facebook page the fishing has been nothing short of spectacular!!!! Now the dilemma may be more where to go?!?! What a great problem to have!!!! LOL
