  6. I'm not sure if I'd be considered a rainbow or a lake trout or other but this has got to be my biggest trout to on the fly to date!

    Rainbow Trout

    1. Elisa T
      Taken care of! 😋
    2. Sorry Elisa that's a rainbow
    3. It's a Rainbow Elisa and a really good one too!!! Congrats on your PB.
    4. Looks like a rainbow to me or some variation. Def not a lake trout though I'd say. Awesome fish though, whatever it is
    5. Looks kinda like a brown trout or maybe a hybrid of some type. Ask Capt Morris Campbell, he fishes trout a lot. Beautiful big trout !!
    6. Nice trout and great pic!!!

  9. Hey, my dad and I are coming to rodman middle to late February. We have no idea what and where to fish we've just heard about it. Do you have any tips or advice?

    1. Don Smith
      Book Capt. Walker for your first day if possible!
    2. Josh Norton
      I have had my best luck trolling wild shiners behind the boat while on the electric motor. You can use a bobber/cork weaving in and around the submerged timber ...more slowly. When you get more experience you can also free line a shiner but it takes more focus on what is happening below the surface. You will need a hook with a weed guard to keep from snagging, eagle claw makes a good one. I hook the shiner down though the top of the nose. The key is when your bobber goes under and you have a bite you need to make sure your reel is in free spool mode, I leave mine in free spool with my thump on the line while trolling, and count to about 20 before setting the hook. Before you set the hook make sure to reel down and get tension on the line. This may sound like a long time to wait before setting the hook, but it will save you from missing a lot of fish. Capt. Kenneth Walker is right about the water depth. When trolling around look for dept changes and holes on your fish finder. I have seen small areas with 1'-2'depth changes produce multiple fish. Hope this helps you have a successful trip..
    3. Morris Campbell
      Best advice, book Capt. Walker and catch some big bass!!!
    4. Late February and early March is the best time. Wild shiners are the way to go for big fish. 8 ft of water is a good depth. And along the barge canal is a good bet. ...more Bet bet is to hire a guide for a day, and you'll get a good idea about the area. I'm a guide for Bassonline.com and my primary waterway is Rodman. I only live 10 miles from the ramp. Let me know if you're interested. Slots are very limited during that period of time, very popular time to fish because of the spawn. Either visit Bassonline.com or contact me soon, if ur interested in my services. Tight lines !
    5. Kevin Dotson
      Or do you know when the best time to come is

    2. Morris Campbell
      25-26" pre spawn
    3. Matched my big basses weight. What was the length?
    4. Morris Campbell
      I like your method of choice there Rich!!! Tim it was 35 here this morning in SW Fl. One of the 12 days of winter..:)
    5. Rich Pardy
      Nice bass Morris!! Do u flip a coin in the morning to decide whether to go after fresh or saltwater fish :)
    6. Tim Steinmetz
      That's an awesome bass you got there, Morris! Well, I leave for Charlotte today. Looks like temps are supposed to get into the 30s, so I'm packing shorts.
    7. Derek Stitt
      Beautiful Largemouth Morris!👍👍

  11. 2 big bass 8-3/4 and 8-1/4. Larger one my son Mike Walker's and the smaller was mine

    8 lb. 4 oz. 26 in. Largemouth Bass with a wild shiners

    1. Rich No problem. I would love to take y'all out. Let me know.
    2. Rich Pardy
      If I can talk the GF into making a stop in that area on our way to the Keys I will let you know to set something up, thanks!!
    3. Rich, Come on down, the bass are fat & happy in April, just at the end of the spawn. Water is warming up and they are usually biting. Contact me and we can set ...more something up. I'll show you what this shiner fishing is all about.
    4. Rich Pardy
      I actually might have a chance to get down there in early April.
    5. Me too Rich, but some days we get really lucky and call it skills. Lol. But Morris is right, you need to get down and fish in some water and not thru the ice, and ...more thaw out. We did get down to 28 this morning, but it will be 75 tomorrow. Gotta love Florida.
    6. Morris Campbell
      Rich, get down here, thaw out and get one!!!
    7. Rich Pardy
      I dream of days when I could catch 2 big bass like that in one day.
    8. Tim Steinmetz
      Awesome bass!
    9. Derek Stitt
      Nice!
    10. Melissa Norris
      nice catch!😀
    11. Morris Campbell
      Thanks Capt. I am going to be fishing the Stick Marsh in late January. Got a few trips set up. Need a bass fix
    12. You're correct there. My son's fish was over 27 and stayed in the high 8's. When I saw the head / mouth, I just knew he had a 12+ and I even got excited. ...more Scales don't lie. I even tried 2 different scales. Same results. Just super skinny. Hope that changes , next month. Nice reds ur catching !
    13. Morris Campbell
      Nice one Kenneth!! They sure aren't fat yet. That one should crack ten with that length!!!
