Rodman Reservoir

Recommended Posts

I finally moved to Florida permanently not just for the winters. Got a chance to fish Rodman Reservoir up near Ocala for the second time. First day of a cold front with 46 degree air temps & water temps of 62.5. The bite was a little slow but not bad considering the effect cold front conditions have on Florida bass. Had over 50 fish for the day with two over 7lbs and the big girl of the day weighed in at 9lbs-4oz. All fish were caught on swimbaits in gold shiner color.

The bite was a little slow??? That’s better than all of my all time best days here in Eastern KY! Way to lay the hammer to them buddy. What I’d give to have a lake like Rodman close to me.

Giants! Looks like they came out of some nutrient rich black water, I could be wrong on that though.
