Default Rodman Reservoir Largemouth Bass Fishing Guide Reports His Impressive Catches to the Florida FWC

Rodman Reservoir Largemouth Bass Fishing Guide Reports His Impressive Catches to the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
As Evidence to Retain a Man-Made Reservoir
For Largemouth Bass Fishing
Instead of Restoring a Free-Flowing River
That Supported Native Striped Bass

A successful largemouth bass fishing guide on north-central Florida’s Rodman Reservoir (a.k.a. Rodman Pool or Lake Ocklawaha) has reported some quite impressive angling results for 2011 and 2012 to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).

The FWC evidently considers this guide’s bass-fishing report to be credible enough to be included in their “Rodman Reservoir Historical Perspective” detailed paper about the proposed Ocklawaha River restoration (to free-flowing again) issue. A thoughtfully engineered breaching of the almost 47-year old Rodman Dam (a.k.a. Kirkpatrick Dam) would allow the Ocklawaha River channel to freely and swiftly flow again for the 56 river miles from Silver Springs to the St. Johns River -- once again facilitating the long distance riverine migration of the American eel, native Atlantic-race striped bass, channel catfish, white catfish, and Florida manatee much as the way that Nature originally had intended.

"One successful bass fishing guide reported that he and his clients caught 4,307 bass in 2011 with 21 weighing over 10 pounds. The same guide reported catching 3,350 bass from January 1-March 2, 2012 during the latest drawdown, 19 of which weighed more than 10 pounds..."
