    Finally did it, nothing giant but definitely made me very excited. Fished with dad on Saturday for the first time at hodges on our boat. We started on the east side with one lost fish that dad hooked on a brush hog. We threw jigs, spinners, jerkbaits... nada .... so then we went
    To the west side and threw some cranks along rocky banks. We came across this little indent, I wouldn’t even call it a cove, along the rocky bank, and in the indent was a bigger rock sticking out on end of the indent. So, I casted my square bill right next to it and boom!!!! Hook up!! I thought it was about 7-8lbs when I hooked it hahah. But we got it in the net in excitement and I thought it was 5 once I saw it. But she went 6.30! Insanely healthy and very very hard fighting fish that ripped plenty of drag! That was the only fish of the day..

    Beast! A lot of folks never catch a fish that big. I was close to 60 before I did. That last one is nothing to brag about, though!

    Congratulations man! Awesome fish. That's the story of hodges for me; I don't get a ton of bites, but when I do, there's a much better chance it's a good one.

    Moral of the story?
    "a bigger rock sticking out" will always be your friend.

    Dylan,

    If they were to drain Hodges, I wonder how much tackle would be found? :emoji_thinking:

    I find myself fishing everything really s-l-o-w! I normally let the fish set themselves. It's just a really tough lake to fish. And if you go in thinking of setting the "hook as hard as you can", you normally get the infamous snag!!!

    Some do really well, there are a few that keep the information "in deep cover" Reports tend to be absent or not reported at all. But the one's in the "know", fish Hodges well!

    Keep up the good work young man, keep changing the PB record.

    Nice job. Dedicate your time to that lake and it will be very generous at times
