I did however help Jay with a three day trip , Wed, Thur, and Fri. I took out Tim and Courtney all three days. We had a blast catching fish and dodging the weather. Tim caught some good fish and lost some monsters , but Courtney put on the big show. He caught some really big fish including a 10 lb 10 oz personal best. All we did was flip and they were both good at it, and that  makes a big difference. I have eye surgery this Thursday . I am sure ready to get my left eye fixed so I can see out of it again without glasses. After a short recovery I will be back down again.

IMG_53401Still here in Abilene . I am headed back down to Falcon come Sunday. I have several trips lined up to be on Sugar and will be spending some time on Falcon getting ready for the upcoming of Bass Champs. I talked a little last year about doing some guiding on my lakes up here in the Abilene are and I plan on starting that in April. I will be doing trips on the following lakes Hubbard Creek, Coleman, Daniels , Stamford, Fort Phantom, Possum Kingdom, and several more. I know these lakes well and have been on most of them quit a bit last spring and summer. My guided trips will be up to two people and will include transportation to and from the lake . We will be leaving from Abilene. With this said I will still be guiding on Falcon and Sugar as my first priority. The lakes up here are full and in good shape and are and will be fishing great, so if you are interested in a trip get in touch with me and get a trip on the books. I will even take kids , with parent consent for an outing. This is a great way to give your kids a fun and great experience.

20170218_142550_resized20170218_142543_resizedI am back in Abilene after a great trip back down to Falcon, Sugar and Amistad. I had three , three day trips lined up this time and ended up doing just my first two. My third trip booked on Sugar got canceled , due to him worried about going and than he goes with another guide, why can’t people just be up front about their change of plans. I do not care about excuses or changes I just do not like people lying about it. Anyway this freed me up to go meet my Bass Champs partner on Amistad Sat and it paid off in a big way. I caught 15 fish on my first stop. Kenneth and I both had our own boats so we took advantage of covering more water. We meet back up at noon and put our heads together on what we had found and man did we make the right adjustments. My nest stop on a different pattern I hooked up on a 7 pounder and 5 cast later caught a 10 lb 2 oz. I texted Kenneth and clued him in is to what I had found and 10 min later he get a 9 lb 1 oz. We was going to spend Sat and Sunday , but at that point our work was over. I will be here in Abilene until Champs this Sat and soon after that I am back south again. I have some good dates left if you want to fish Sugar only as I am off limits on Falcon Mar 15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23. Get in touch with me and lets get it on. Thanks again for the cancelation that let me go to Amistad I hope it pays of for me.

We had for the most part great weather and the fish responded well. We boated 171 fish in the three days. Could it have been better yes a lot . We all had spells of not putting them in the boat. At times it would be one of us loosing 8 to 10 fish in a roll. I could have took a ton more pictures , but as you can tell we had plenty. We never made a cast the whole trip, other to clean our line out to make another flip. Sugar was good to use , but really I think better times are coming real soon. We had a blast. I did weigh a 13 lb 5 oz that a netter took out of a net beside us. this is the biggest I have ever seen caught in a net. It should have been a triple as I landed a 7 lb 12 , Kirby had one on a lot bigger and lost it at the boat and the netters were fighting the 13 pounder in the net all at the same time. We at that point were really on some big ones. I fish Falcon Wed , Thur, Friday , I am going to try to talk them into Sugar for Thur depending on how Falcon fishes Wed. I have done some scouting on Falcon last Tues , Wed, Thur and did really well catching about 30 each day. I had a 9 lb and a 7 lb and several 5 to 6 pounders here on Falcon. We have a front coming Tuesday and it will probably slow things down a little.

The weather was just not very good on Friday and Sat. finally Sunday it got nice and we finally started catching some good fish. Arron’s best for the trip was a 7 lb 12 oz. I took my friend John out on Falcon Tuesday and the weather was nice other than dealing with a bunch of fog early. We got on a bunch of good fish up in the day. I have a trip Friday, Sat and Sunday again on Sugar and the weather looks better than this past weekend so I think the fish will respond.

I know it has been a while since I have posted. I did have some trips on the books last week, but I had to cancel. I became really sick Sunday and had to got to the doctor and return to Abilene Wed where I am right now. I have Pneumonia. this is the first time I have had this and it is not fun. Being sick is one thing , but not being able to get air is a whole new level , at least for me. Today is Sat so I have had this for a week now and for the first time I can at least walk to another room in the house without loosing my breath. the strong meds are finally started to do some good. I have a busy Feb coming up and I have notified the ones I have the first of the month about my status. Hopefully I can get back to work by then. I will let you know how it goes.

I had Jimmy and Dan last week and it blew a gail while they were here but we still caught some fish as you can see them in the first group of pictures. Lets talk about today .  I had John today and this is the first day I have had that I could run the lake as it was calm most all day. I wasted a couple of hours early looking around , but once I got us in the area I wanted to be in . We starting catching some good fish and we caught some big girls as well. I put the scales on three today a 7 lb 1 oz , an 8 lb 2 oz and a 9 lb 12 oz we had some 4,s and a couple of five pounders I did not weight , but I am pretty sure we hit the 36 pound mark for our best five. I will be here and I need the trips and the weather this week is going to be great for a change.

Well I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year. I was to be on Sugar Lake this morning , but we moved our three day trip to Feb due to the front that is hitting down there today and going to be there thru Sun. I am still in Abilene and let me tell you it is cold up here. I will head to Falcon Sat as I have a full slate next week on Falcon. I start Monday and fish 8 straight days on Falcon. I have as most of you know my Brazil trip the week after my Falcon trips . I have been informed that the river where we fish is flooded due to a bunch of rain and more predicted. They gave me the option to move my trip later so the river will have a chance to come down and make the fishing a lot better than it would be flooded. When the river floods into the jungle it becomes really hard to catch them. I for now have not moved the trip and I have till Tuesday to do so. I have 16 clients to talk and see if this can be done and a date that will fit everyones schedule. I will let you know because if I do not go to Brazil on the 18th I will be open for more trips in Jan. Talk to you later.

img_1987 img_1988 img_1989 img_1990Well I tried to load up a video on my site , feeding my fish, but I could not get it to load . I guess it was too large for my server. Anyway I did take a few pictures of them waiting on their minnows. These fish are really growing very fast as I feed them most every day and the pond is loaded with bait. I will be headed to Zapata next week to start my trips I have on the books for Jan. I still have a few days left . Jan 5th and 6th and Jan 16th and 17th is all I have left. Get in touch with me if you want to come down.
