Michael, or Mikey as he was known to all, was born on February 6, 1957, in Wilson, North Carolina, to the late Joseph and Clara Hodges. At a young age his father taught him how to fish, that experience grew over time and became Mikey's passion. Exploring rivers, oceans, and water territory throughout the United States and abroad, Mikey happily had rod and reel in hand, ready for his next big catch. Fishing his entire life was a skill he happily shared with the world and is what became his life's greatest accomplishment. Using his fun-loving, jokester, full-of-life spirit, combined with this love of fishing inspired Mikey to start a YouTube Channel, titled "Somewhere Up A Creek Comedy Fishing". Full of laughter, comedy, and fishing, Mikey and Angela have entertained thousands spanning 10 years of hilarious video clips.

He is survived by his loving wife and best friend of 10 years, Angela Baker Hodges of the home; daughters, Emily Wright (Zach) of Wilson, NC, Shannon Caton of Winnabow, NC, and Shawn Goodwin (Justin) of Adams Creek, NC; son, Michael Ashley Hodges of Wilson, NC; sister, Debbie Hodges of Orlando, FL; grandchildren, Kileigh Caton, Alissa "Woodstock" Caton, Peyton Caton, Savannah Guthrie, Gracelyn Goodwin, and Noah Goodwin who was also his fishing pal; father and mother-in-law, Wilber G. and Inez Smith Baker of Beaufort; brother and sister-in-law, Rodney and Delores Baker of Beaufort; and of course his beloved, favorite daughter, Sissy, the funny Yorkie.
