June 19th, 2017

I know it has been a while since my last post. I have been making some changes in my site and it got a little screwed up and I am just now able to post. I did not get to post my last couple of days on Falcon with Tate and Melissa and their twin boys . I did take some good pictures of them but I’m am yet to recover them on my computer. Hope I can get them up on this site soon. I hade them for two days and even though it was windy the twins caught a ton of fish 183 to be exact in the two days they fished. 7 lb was the biggest but they had a 27 lb stringer in 5 the second day and that was very good for Falcon at this time and wind. The boys qualified for the youth nationals to be heled this weekend in Tenn. I know they will do good. I will try to recover all the great pictures of them and mom and dad and add them to this report later. I am in Abilene for a while and I have had a trip or two up here and planning to do some more . Other than wind ,wind , wind the fishing has been good. I did get my pond completely finished and have it stocked well with bluegill and crawfish and minnows and it is already about half full. It turned out really good and covers about 4 acers. I have about 30 2 to 3 pound bass in it and some of them have spawned . I should have a great fishing hole for me and all the grandkids very soon.

I have been busy and a lot has happened since my last post. I had my eye surgery and I am so pleased with it. I have 20/20 in my left eye now and I do not have to wear glasses at all. I have been as a lot of you know on a pond project here at my house in Abilene for over a year now. It had three stages and I have began work on the final stage this month. When finished It will be about 4 Ac and average about 14 to 16 feet deep. I have posted some before and after pictures just to let you see the difference . I have three docks completed and the pond will have three water fountains in it as well. These will provide both look and oxygen to the water for the dog days of summer .I have stocked the lower half with crawfish and shiners and have about 30 2 pound Florida Bass . As you can see in the pictures I have added a rock pile for structure and plan on doing a couple more in the near future. Now all I need it to do is rain and give me some water. Now about fishing . I will start my guiding back up the 15th of May. I already have several trips on the books but still have some open days to fill The dates I have open as of now are 15,20,21,22,23,24,28,29,30,31. If you want to come now is the best time of year to fish Falcon and Sugar.

I just got back to Abilene after 5 days on Sugar. I always love going to Sugar starting this time of year , but this five days was a windy son of a gun. We did fish all five days but the wind was just brutal coming out of the South three days and North two days. The numbers of fish was just great , but fish over 7 pounds were far a few between. A lot of that is was it was nearly impossible to fish out of protected pockets and the big girls were not shallow for the most part. I did get section two of my pond project done Friday and it is raining here today. I have one more section to complete and I will be done , well that is what I am telling Sheretta LOL. I should have about four acres out my back door when the third section is complete and average about 14 feet deep. I already have it stocked very well with Bait and Bass and Bluegill. I did bring my boat to Abilene and plan on fishing up here the most of April . I start my guide trips back on Falcon and Sugar the 28th of April and plan on trying to Fill all the days from then thru the month of May. As most of you Know May and June are the best and my very favorite time to guide on Falcon and Sugar . I at this time still have some good dates to fill. Get in touch with me and lets spend some time together fishing Sugar or Falcon.

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.
