Winter storms are here and have put a bit of a damper on the local fishing, Hodges looks promising with high water levels and virtually no fishing pressure. Look for prime largemouth fishing in the coming weeks. Fish should be targeting bigger baits as they are loading up for the upcoming spawn, fish jigs and other crawdad immitations supplemented with search-baits like lipless crankbaits and chatterbaits. San Diego and Mission bays have been off and on as of late but some determined fishermen have been hooking up with the occasional flatty. Fly Tiers come on in and load up on materials for the opener that will be here before you know it. I also wanted everyone to know that the Qualifier 105 dropped off their 2011 schedules and looks like they have some great trips lined up. Happy fishing!
