    Well even after my rant about the conditions at Lake Hodges I went ahead being a gluton for punishment and made that 1/2 hour drive to the lake. It was beautiful today and only 20 guys with boats in the morning. I fish all the usual areas and managed only 1 bass for the day.......and a bass she was mweasured out to 22 inches and went around 7 1/2 lbs. That damn lake.

    Drought, fluctuating water levels, poor water quality, lack of protective cover for the smaller fish & lack of real leadership & professional management from the city, like we/they had once upon a time, has all factored in to the decline of the bass population at.Hodges.
    It sad.
    Back in the 80's it was epic.
    & Southerland too....
