Back from Sugar Lake tonight to reload with more clients for tomorrow . I had Jim Bob and Larry on Sugar Monday and today. The weather was a little iffy both days today was on the border of being nasty. We still boated 81 fish over the two days of north wind and rain. The first day all three of us had a bad day of putting big fish in the boat two over 8 pounds were lost at the boat and another 4 were broke off. I lost an absolute monster of a fish . Same place I had the 12 lb 7 oz on a few days ago. We had a great bag both days , but could have been much better. We ran out of the good baits yesterday. No fear I reloaded at the tackle store today when I got back. I will be on Sugar again tomorrow and will not return until Sunday night so I will not be able to put up a report till then. Talk to you Sunday.
I got a call from Andrew a Sugar veteran he seen I was off Sun and want to go out and fish Falcon for a change. It was a little breezy and cloudy but we did find a few willing to bite. We boated about 20 today with a 4.5 lb being the biggest. We did not fish the small baits and almost all the fish we caught were about 3 pounders in other word we did not catch any dinks today. We caught fish in 12 to 22 foot of water did not fish any shallower than 12 feet. Andrew and I fished till about 2 pm and put it on the trailer so we would have plenty of time to eat and watch the Cowboys. I always enjoy fishing Falcon as I have not got to very much since April. I head to Sugar in the morning and will be there all week. I will return Tuesday eve to exchange clients so I will post a report Tuesday eve.
I am off today . I was bored so I just started looking back at the Sugar Lake pictures and Wow . I started my guiding back on Sugar Lake in April of this year. I can remember how the first couple of months the wind and weather was a tough deal, but we still managed to catch some big fish. The pictures I put up are only a fraction of the big fish that My clients and I have caught in the last 7 months. All of the fish pictured are DD and I did not put them all up . Just yesterday I had my biggest fish of the year a 12 lb 7 oz monster of a fish for this time of year. If you want a chance at a DD fish or a fish of you lifetime , than you need to come go with me to Sugar Lake. The odds are better on this lake to do that than any other lake that I know of that is Safe and easy to get to. I have a great place to stay over there and the food is just as good as it gets. Just compare the cost of other trips to Mexican lakes . I get $500 per day for two people ( $250 each ) and the rooms, food , etc is about $150 per day ( $75 ) each and at least on Sugar , You will catch quality fish , not 1 to 3 pounders . So two people can fish 4 days with me on Sugar and the total cost for two would be about $2500 or ($1250 each ). Now if you want to catch quality fish and a real good chance at a DD you need to give Sugar Lake a try. I know that Sugar Lake gives you a lot bigger BANG for you BUCK NO DOUGHT. Just compare my fishing reports of just MY BOAT to ALL the other fishing reports on the other Mexican Lakes or US lakes . I will put Sugar Lake up against any other lake in the country , for catching numbers of quality fish. If you are interested or have any questions please get in touch with me. Also If you get a chance you can look back at all my reports starting in April and see for yourself how it has been.
I am back from Sugar . I took Luis and Alberto today for a quick one day trip. As you can see by the pictures we even had lunch. We hit the water about 7:30 and it was 52 degrees . Today was a really slow numbers day. we only boated about 25 fish today. With that said Luis caught a really nice fish on the crank bait a heavy 8 pounder. Alberto also had a good fish as well. I caught my biggest fish of the year today a massive 12 lb 7 oz monster. I( knew as soon as I hit her she was a monster . We did have a few more fish in the 5 to 6 pound range and I had another not pictured about 7 pounds on the crank bait. Even though it was a very slow day we still had a heck of a stringer with out best five going just about 40 pounds thanks to a 12 lb 7 oz kicker. I have the next few days off and will return to Sugar come Monday. I will be there thru Sat. The cool down and massive amount of water Sugar has caught has scattered the fish. It might take me a day or two but I will get them dialed back in again real soon.
Back from Sugar . I had Mark and his wife Natalie . Sheretta went along with us this time as well, to keep Natalie company. We were to fish three days but ended up trying to fish the first day and got blown off the water by the north wind. Day two and day three the weather was great . We found the front had shut them down a little so it made it a grind out there. We boated 68 fish in the two days and one day one had five for 42 lb 3 oz . Big fish was a 10 lb 3 oz and second to that was a 9 lb 11 oz. As always the food was great . I will be back to Sugar Lake in the morning. I will have my report on how Thursday goes that eve.
Wow can you believe I had a trip on Falcon today. Well just a 4 hour half day trip. Mark and his son wanted to get off the water in time to watch Texas and Oklahoma play. We beat it down the lake to the Tigers and Mark had two good fish right off the bat. Luke was not doing as well with the plastic so I switched him to a crank and bam , it did not take him long to join in on the action. Luke had a couple of good fish on , but he reeled them to far in on the rod and they broke him off at the boat. I really enjoyed being on my home lake today and the weather was just great I just wish we could have fished all day as the fish were in the biting mood today. they boated 15 fish today and had a few more on as well. Thanks guys I really enjoyed the trip.
Back from Sugar Lake . I had Jerry and Aaron on a two day trip to Sugar . I had just came back from a great trip with perfect conditions . This trip we did not have perfect conditions . Day one we had a couple of hours before the wind started howling today it was blowing hard from the get go. Jerry and Aaron hung in there and even though it was tough they managed a few big fish. We only boated 27 the first day and 26 today for a total of 53. We lost a bunch of fish as well, due to the conditions, it is really hard to feel the bite with this much wind. I caught a few good fish not pictured to help the cause. But I know this looks good , but for me the way Sugar is Fishing I was very disappointed. I am off tomorrow and back to work on Falcon come Sat. I will than be at Sugar lake Monday thru Thursday with two different groups. I have got the fish located , the deal is I have to be able to fish them.
I just got back from three days on Sugar Lake. This lake has really came up the last two weeks and it has peaked out at full. I had Darrell and Steve the first two days and Jim Bo the third day that is why the pictures and the report are together. The first day it was very tough and we only boated 23 fish and I did not take a picture the first day. So all the pictures are from just two days. It took me all day the first day and half the second day to figure where the fish had moved to with all this new water and cover. When I did , It was on like donky kong. Let me tell you we just hammered the big fish . 11 lb 3 oz was big for the trip , but we had an 9 lb 11 oz , 9 lb 7 oz and a ton of fish from 6 to 8 pounds. On day two our best five went right at 47 pounds, Do that on any lake in the country right now. Sugar Lake is just going to get better and better as I see it. Now the fish are really on the move . Like stated we had 23 fish on day one , a staggering 83 on day two most all caught after lunch and we had 40 today and quit at 3 pm. From about 1 pm yesterday, thru today we did not catch many fish under 5 pounds. I will be back to Sugar in the morning for another two day trip. I can not wait.
I am off today. Just sitting here having my morning jo. It is 60 degrees this morning here in Zapata. As most of you know I have been doing most all my trips on Sugar Lake since Mar and this lake has been just really good. Over the last 2 weeks Sugar has filled up and the fish continue to bite. Saying that let us not forget about Falcon. I had a trip on Falcon on Sept 23 and we had a great day catching over 30 fish and having our best five over 30 pounds as well. Falcon is alive and well and it to is catching a little water up over a foot since then. Bottom line is that I love to fish both Falcon and Sugar so that give me the option to put my clients on the best lake at the best time to catch quality fish. That is what is all about for me . When you hire me I want you to catch quality . Sugar lake has for sure filled that expectation. Falcon is starting to kick that option in as of now too. I have started booking trips now that we have the option to fish either Falcon or Sugar , depending on all the conditions when the trip date comes around. I fish and stay on top of what is going on, on both lakes daily, so I will know what is the best choice . I know some of you have thought about taking a trip to Sugar , but are still worried about travel into Mexico. I have done over 60 days on Sugar lake this year , with no problems and I feel that it is safe to go . I will be back to work Sunday thru Thursday on Sugar lake with three different groups. Sugar lake at full pool is a little over 44,000 Ac and most of the time I am the only boat there. Let me tell you it is like having your own private lake to fish. The last few trips I expected the fish to be scattered and due to the massive amount of water Sugar caught , and they were a little but we still caught a bunch of fish and a bunch of quality. With this lake full , it gives me all kinds of options . Right now It think you can catch them about any way you want to. So if you want to go fishing in the near future , lets get a date on the books for Falcon\Sugar and when that dates comes around we will have the option for either lake. LOOK for my Fishing Report come Tues eve when I get back to change clients for the wed , thur trip.
Just got back from a three day trip to sugar Lake with Gary and Ralph. Gary had fished with me on Sugar three weeks ago and liked it so much that he brought a friend to enjoy this great lake. Sugar did not let us down as we just hammered the fish and a good number of big ones. It took Ralph a little while to adjust his hook set on the mean fish. He really got it going on day two and caught his biggest of the trip a nice 7 pounder. We boated 41 fish the first day , 50 fish the second day and today it was really windy and I had to stay protected , but we still caught 36 today . So we boated 127 fish in the three day trip and man we caught a ton of 4 and 5 pounders . Ralph has some grandkids to take fishing so he wanted to learn how to drop shot , Now I know what you are thinking Drop Shot on Sugar. Well it was a first for me . But man it was insane. Ralph is picture with a really nice one on the drop shot . LOOK closely and you will see the RoBo worm hanging in its mouth in the picture. I had a great time with these two and they are already making plans for three more days soon. I am off the next two day but back to Sugar come Sunday and will be there thru Thursday with 3 different groups. I know there seems to be more pictures of me than normal, but I really had to fish around on my spots because the fish are moving with all the water Sugar is catching . So most of the time I caught these fish when I had to relocate them on a spot. This lake will be full in just a few days.
