Fishing with Captain Ken Walker
“Some trips can start out slow and end with a big bang. The Rodman Reservoir is one of those fisheries that you just can’t sleep on. Every cast, every take, and every bite could be the fish of your lifetime. It is the only place that you can consistently find giant Florida largemouth bass all year long.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Tim Jordan, who was traveling from North Florida to search down his new personal best. The Rodman Reservoir is one of his favorite places to do so. After having a slow start to the morning, the bite gradually picked up as the sun began to warm the surface of the water.
It was the second day of a cold front and I knew it was not going to be the most active day on the water. To my surprise, Rodman was not playing around on this fishing trip. The big bass were hungry and coming out to play.
Tim caught 8 beautiful largemouth bass on his fishing trip. One of those fish was his new personal best weighing in at a whopping 10 pounds 4 ounces. Giant trophy double digit largemouth bass are what you come to the Rodman Reservoir for.
I was excited to be part of this adventure. Tim put in some work and in the end got what he came for. I am looking forward to fishing with him again in the near future!
Fishing with Captain Gino Losi
“After many years of inconsistent fishing, I am happy to announce the St. Johns River is back in action. During the last major hurricane to hit Florida, saltwater erosion hurt the fishing conditions. As a result, it took many years for the bass fishing to come back alive.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Jon and his wife. They were traveling from Minnesota looking to cash in on some bass fishing here on the St. Johns River. North Florida is the perfect destination to explore Florida fishing, especially for largemouth bass.
A mix of clouds and breezy fishing conditions made for a productive bite. The spawn is in full effect on the St. Johns River. You can find staging fish at the mouth of the canals and shell bars. As you travel through the canal systems you can also find bedding fish.
Jon and his wife had an absolute blast catching over 15 largemouth bass on their fishing trip. Most of the fish were caught on wild-caught live shiners. It was great to see the quality of fish caught on this trip. Numbers of 3-4 pound fish were brought to the boat.
North Florida from the St. Johns River to the Rodman Reservoir is on for some great bass fishing. I look forward to fishing with Jon again in the near future!” – Captain Gino Losi

“Fishing on the Rodman Reservoir is starting to really pick up. When looking to catch multiple and numbers of quality largemouth bass, this is the destination to travel to. North Florida holds some exceptional waters for putting people on their biggest bass ever.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Mike and his family. They were traveling from Gainesville, FL, looking to check out what Rodman Reservoir Fishing was all about. What a day on the water for this family, especially considering the windy conditions that were persistent all trip long.
Mike and his family caught over 15 largemouth bass on this fishing trip. Most of the fish were in the 2-4 pound range. 5 of their best fish weighed in at 5 pounds 14 ounces, 6.4, 7.4, and the biggest was 8 pounds and 14 ounces. NOW that is what bass fishing on the Rodman Reservoir is all about!
Mike and his family had a fantastic time on the water and are looking forward to exploring its wonders again soon!” – Capt Peter T
