Now that I have to pass Bode a few times a week for work I am going to be stopping there more. The easy access is a huge plus for me, as I usually will only have 30-60 minutes a night there. Water is a bit murky but there isn't a ton of vegetation to contend with, and the dropoff seems pretty quick.
Seen plenty of jumpers (and a turtle periscoping outta the water) in the two most recent trips (both at sunset), but have failed to hook anything. Thrown out senkos, jighead with a grubs and my Jitterbug. This was the place my dad took my brothers and me all the time when were kids. Can't really recall catching anything of note there, but at least there is the notstalgia factor for me now.
I will say, however lackluster the fishing may or may not be, this place is usually hoppin busy. Tons of people with bobbers in the water, families having picnics, there is a bike trail through the preserve...even saw some border collies going for a swim tonight.
