Rodman Reservoir Bass Fishing Guide Service Report
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! I also had a fast and furious afternoon trip recently by Walt Kunau and friends where they boated 52 bass in 2 hours! 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!

Lights Out Summer Fishing!!
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
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. They are August 9,10,11,12,13 &19th. 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!!!!!!!!!

Well in review all I can say is that this year has definitely been one for the record books!!!! This has been one of the best BIG BASS years I have ever witnessed, if not THE BEST!!!! Not only was it a stellar Fall, Winter and Spring, but the way we have continued to catch these HAWG fish in the numbers we have, is nothing short of AMAZING!!!! I have been getting everybody’s TrophyCatch qualifying bass that they caught with me together this fishing season and forwarding the info on to them to submit, as many of you well know. Well as of now (and I still have most of January and February’s big fish to sort through and add up) we are at 160 BASS SO FAR THAT CUSTOMERS CAUGHT WITH ME THIS SEASON THAT QUALIFIED FOR TROPHYCATCH!!!!!!!!!! That means that with 2 months of our peak season to still add up, as well as over 2-1/2 months to go we have caught 160 bass exceeding 8 lbs!!!!! I think when it’s all said and done and the final tally is in, it could be around or over 200!!!!! That just shows you how absolutely incredible of a fishery this is and with all the massive fish in the reservoir this year can you imagine what the upcoming drawdown is going to be like?!?!?!?!?!?!?! I can’t wait !!!!!!!!!! Right now the fishing is still completely awesome and the numbers we are catching daily is actually increasing!!!! We are averaging 30-50 fish per day right now!!!! We had one day this week where we actually had 53!!!! The reservoir is beautiful right now and the water in places is crystal clear and in spots you can see down 20 feet to the bottom!! When we have conditions like this it usually makes for AWESOME summer fishing and that certainly appears to be the case!! For anyone interested in getting out there for a fun morning’s fishing, I have a few days open in the upcoming weeks. If anyone is interested please let me know! I have also got some incredible news about the drawdown this year I will be sharing in the next couple of days! So everyone get ready

OUT OF THIS WORLD SUMMER FISHING!!!!!!!!!!
Guys, I have to be honest that I just want to pinch myself!!!! To say the fishing is good right now simply does not do it justice!!!! The fishing right now is on par with what we have here a lot in the winter months as far as the big fish go!! We have just been absolutely crushing the BIG fish!!!! We are catching piles of fish 10 lbs and bigger and are getting some great numbers!! I would have to honestly say that this is the best summer fishing I have perhaps ever seen for big fish!!!! The last 2 days in a rope I have had customers boat fish over 10 lbs and lots of days we are boating MULTIPLE big fish!!!! Including 9 year old Eli Tuten boating a 10 lber today on his birthday!!!! Please just take a moment to browse through these photos and look at some of the incredible catches from the last few weeks!! (There are also some older pics of TrophyCatch fish we are just turning in) Rodman is in beautiful shape and I couldn’t be more excited about this summer!!!! For anyone looking I still have a few days left open in July as of today and they are: July18,19,21,22,23,24,25 & 28. The trick is to get in early and get out before it gets too warm!! Thanks guys and I hope all is well with everyone!!!!

Mega Hot Fishing!!!!!!!!!!
WOW!!!! Is the word that comes to mind! Guys if it already wasn’t enough that this has been one of the best big bass years I have ever experienced, then I have to admit that I am now completely floored by the fishing that is going on right now!!!! Please check out my FaceBook page at www.facebook.com/trophybass Not only is it nearly every day that we are boating some real HAWG bass, but a lot of the days it’s multiple big fish!!!! The local lakes are in absolutely beautiful condition, as of the time of this email, the water is starting to clear and the fish are absolutely hammering it!!!! And not just any fish! Giant HAWG bass!!!! I just had a customer named Steve Warren boat TWO 10lb plus bass in one day!!!! The trips right now are averaging 20-40 per day on top of the PIG bass!!!! You want to get out early and wrap your day up probably by noon to beat the heat, but MAN are we in heaven right now!!!! For anyone looking to get in on this phenomenal fishing I have some days available in early July left open still!!!!

An Unbelievable Year and Really Awesome Fishing Right Now
Hello Everyone! It’s been SSOOOO long since I’ve done a fishing report! So I’m going to try and get back in the swing of things and get everyone caught up and get these reports rolling again!! What an incredibly good big bass year this has been!!!!! This may potentially be the best big bass year I have ever had! And you know that with all the unbelievable fishing we have had here over the years, THAT is saying A LOT!!!! My fiscal year (the way I track my season) runs from October to October to run in conjunction with The TrophyCatch Florida Program. Guys this has been a record year!!!! With so many of our customers catching MONSTER fish as you will see in the emails in the coming months as I get all of these pictures together from the season and get all the customers who caught trophy bass info and pics together to submit to The TrophyCatch program for their rewards and gift cards!!!! We had four fish top the 12 pound mark so far for this season!!!!! Topped by Ritchie Whitmore’s 14lb 1oz BEAST that many of you already heard about or saw it reported in the local media!!!! These are all Boga Grip weighed and documented fish which will be certified by The Florida Game and Fish Commission upon entry to the program to honor all of our wonderful customers and separate us from the shady guide services who falsely claim fish weights without actually weighing their customer’s fish. We may literally have a couple of hundred to submit this year!!!!!  In this email I am including pics of the four fish that were 12+ and some of the catches from this month already! Now on to some more fantastic news: THE FISHING IS OFF THE CHARTS GOOD RIGHT NOW!! Right now on short morning trips we are averaging 20-40 fish with some real HAWGS coming over the side of the boat in the last week!! Today I had an angler boat 2 fish over 10 lbs!! Steve Warren caught a 10 lb and a 10 lb 2 ozer!!!! So for anyone looking I still have 3 dates left in June and several days left in early July! I have June 24, 25 and 30 available for anyone looking to get in on some fantastic fishing!!!!! Call me for the July dates! I am also proud to report that in addition to our deal with Shimano, I was approached by UnderArmour to rep their gear!!!! So we are now also sponsored by UnderArmour!!!! Always nice to have the support of the best!!!! I hope everything is great with everyone and I look forward to getting back to doing these fishing reports again! Thanks -Sean
