I thought I would show you a before and after shot of the work I have been doing around my house. With this extended stay here in Abilene I have had a chance to finally do the work around the house that I had planed. I have most all of my rent houses complete and rented so that work has slowed down , allowing me to do the projects around the house. Today I have the big cat coming again to finish up what we started a couple of weeks ago. I will be adding about 2 more acres to my pond and going to about 18 feet deep. I have the pond well stacked with bait and bass and this will be a great add to the pond making it about 4 to 5 acres. With this depth I will be able to grow and maintain some giant bass. The golf range is really taking shape as the grass is just going crazy. I will be returning to Falcon come Sept 10th as I have some trips on the books . If you want to fish , get in touch with me as I will be taking trips the month of Sept. Also I had one spot come open on the Peacock Bass trip , It is the only spot left, so if you want to come please get in touch with me . The cost of the trip is $4500 and it is Jan 21 thru the 28th .
Still here in Abilene . I have been busy with thing around here. Today I am feeling a little older as today is my birthday. I am also remembering my oldest son Brandon that would have been 35 years old today as well as we share the same birthday. As most of you know Brandon was taken from us on Jan 2, 2010 in a car accident. I started a clean up project this year around the house here in Abilene, and it has turned into a lot more , as I have added a golf range and I am in the process of adding about 2 more acres to my pond. We had a big dozer in here Friday doing some of the preparation to do this bigger project in the very near future. I still have to much water in the upper pond to do it now. I had to reschedule my Aug trips as I had things to do up here. I will be full bore guiding come Sept 10th thru the 30th on Falcon and Sugar. If you want to fish , let me know. Also I have filled my Peacock Bass Trip to Brazil , but if you want to go I can hook you up with some really good guys that have several trips they are doing , so give me a shout and I will get you hooked up with them. There website is at the bottom of my main page , just click on it and it will take you to their site. Thanks to everyone for the great birthday wishes. See you soon , back on the water.
It has been a while since I have made a post. I am still here in Abilene, doing a lot of work on the estate and playing some golf with my friends . I was suppose to be in Zapata today and start fishing on Thursday, but I have had a change in plans and have postponed my trips I had for August. I will not start guiding again until the 12th of Sept.. I already have some dates booked but I will be there until the end of the month so I still have plenty open dates. Just to let you know I only have one spot left on my Peacock Bass Trips to Brazil and the trip is Jan 21st thru the 28th . Get in touch with me if you want to go. The price for this great trip is only $4500 . Come joins us for a trip of a lifetime.
Just a note to let you know what has been going on. I am in Abilene and I had planned on doing a lot of work on the rent houses and some fishing and some golfing with friends. I have done quit a bit of work some golf and no fishing. The reason for no fishing is that every day the wind has been 20 to 30 since I have been back in Abilene. I still plan on checking some of my favorite lakes as soon as it calms down a little. I will now start booking trips to Falcon and Sugar for Aug . I plan on heading back down around the 10th so if you want to come let me know. Lets talk about Brazil and Peacock Bass Fishing . As some of you know I do trips to Brazil in Jan and I have two trips on the books . Jan 14th thru the 21st and Jan 21st thru the 28th. The first trip is on the great ship the Santana and is at a great price of $4395 per person. I still have 8 spots open on that trip. The second trip is on the Lord . The Lord is a smaller ship and this is a small group of us hard core guys. I only have 1 spot left on this elite trip . the price on this small group trip is $5395 per person. I know a lot of concern about the Zika virus is all over the media . My trips are on the Rio Negro and The Rio Negro is a river chain that does not have mosquitoes and so there is no threat of Zika . I have been on 6 trips and I have yet to see a mosquito on any of them. These two trips are top notch trips and everything is furnished . Flight to Brazil is not included . If you have any question or want to go , get in touch with me.
Well I am in Abilene and finally have good internet service. TWC never fixed my problem in Zapata over the 7 weeks I was there , so I told them to just forget it. I am posting my last 4 days on Sugar . I had Wally for two days. It did not start out well as I blew a lower unit going to my first spot. The picture is a Mexican netter hauling us back to the ramp. Wally and I had to go get another lower unit, thanks to Carlos he had one and we got it put on and hit the water for about 2 hours in the eve the first day. Even though we had trouble we were able to catch some monster fish. Day two was just as good and we got to fish all day. The next trip was with two of my favorite clients Jimmy and Kathy. Man did we have a good time and catch a lot of big fish as shone by the pictures . I forgot my phone the first day or there would have been more pictures. I did get Jimmy to take a picture or two and email them to me. I will be in Abilene the whole month of July so I will not be taking trips. I do however got someone there to take you out if you want to go. Get in touch with me and I will hook you up. It was a fun May and June guiding down on Falcon and Sugar , Now it is time for a little work on the estate and some golf with good friends.
I am still without internet. I have had two great trips to report about on Sugar. I guide today on Falcon. I will make a combined report today or thur. I have some great pictures of some big fish to share.
Here are the pictures from my last Sugar Trip. I also threw in one of me here on Falcon. I went out on Falcon for a couple of hours yesterday, to do a little scouting and got of the water to watch dustin J. win the open. Arron and Kurt had one really windy day on Sugar and one really nice day . We did catch a bunch of fish both days . I forgot my phone the first day or I would have taken a lot more pictures of some good fish, not monsters this trip 8 lb was the best caught by Kurt, the amazing thing is he used spinning gear the whole time on this trip and was able to land this pig. It also cost him a fish or two as well. I will be at Sugar Wed and Thur. I still do not have my service fixed at the house so I do not have internet , maybe they will fix it this time around , It has been three weeks, only in Zapata.
Im back from Sugar. I had Arron and Captain Kurt. We had one really windsy day on thur and a great day on Friday. We caught some really nice fish both days. I have several great pictires. My damn internet is stll out so i will post them later doing that by phone service is to slow. I stll have some days open if you would like to fish Falcon or Sugar they both are doing well
Well I am back from Sugar where I had Scott again from a few weeks back. Scott brought down David . David had never bass fished before and of course had never caught one or see one. What a place to start his fishing . David had to stay with a open face real and rod as he did not know how to use a baitcaster. It was a treat watching him get his butt kicked a few times. He really whacked some nice fish on day one and about 11 am he was pooped and I had to take him to the room. Scott and I went out and did a little damage to say the least on some nice fish . We only fished a little more than a half day today . Scott has been on a quest for a while to break the 7 lb mark and today he smashed it with his personal best a 9 lb 10 oz beast that was 25 in long and 18 in around. this will be his first bass mount to go with all the other trophies in his home. I am very very happy with him. Scott called his wife and is bring her back on the 30th this month. My kind of client. The other pictures of Cody in the yellow shirt was from Falcon Sat with him and Chance. We had to work but we did get on some Quality late in the day. Falcon is really fishing very well as I have done pretty good when I have had the chance to get on her. As to the number of fish that were caught , I really did not keep count , expecially on Sugar . It was a ton to say the least, but I only want picture, picture and more pictures of my clients with big fish and even a bigger smile or Like Scott with his picture with his personal best LOL. Thanks Chance , Cody , Scott and David for the trips.
Well my internet is still out at my house. I took out Chance and Cody on Falcon today. It was windy and old Falcon was rough. We strugled early but finally figured them out a little. I have some pictures of Codys fish . Chances fish were camera shy. I will update this post when i get my internet fixed. Off to Sugar in the morning for 2 days with Scott.
