Weighing in the heaviest bag (5.14kg) and only five kilo plus bag for the event, it was on day one when Hodges had his big fish beatdown.
“Everything I touched turned to gold on the first day, the big fish bit, and they stayed hooked,” explained Hodges.
Hodges fish came on a combination of Berkley blades and crankbaits
With a new custom made Duffrods now safely tucked away in his rod locker Hodges will be keen to hit the tournament trail and continue his run of good form.
