Searching For Quality Rodman Reservoir North Florida Largemouth Bass Fishing
Here is your Searching For Quality Rodman Reservoir North Florida Largemouth Bass Fishing report. I had the pleasure to fish with Austin and his brother, Chops. The Rodman Reservoir in North Florida is beautiful this time of year.
We were searching for quality largemouth bass that lives here. We had a late start to the day because one of the main roads getting to the reservoir was blocked. It produced some traffic but, we finally made it and it turned out to be a really nice day.
Temperature played a key factor in the bite today. We fished right before a front was rolling through, which I thought would produce a better bite, but it did not. The water temperature was still lower than normal in the low sixties.
We started off throwing some artificial baits since the topwater bite is usually on early in the morning. Today, it wasn’t.
Rodman Lives up to Name
So, I had to throw on a shiner for them. It did not take much time after the shiner hit the water for it to start enticing the big fish. That action produces always attracts fish. I told Austin to get ready and gave him the rod. The fish swarmed the shiner and busted out of the water. Austin was ecstatic. It was right around 5 pounds, one of the better fish we caught today.
We ended up having a great day with the shiners, especially since we had one over 6 pounds. Luckily, we did get some quality fish with those pre-frontal conditions. We just could not get the artificial bite going.
