I had my favorite client out today, my wife Sheretta . It had been over two years since I have had her in the boat. She was a little rusty at first, but it did not take her long to get back in the saddle . We only stayed out about 3 hours and caught 47 fish for out efforts. Here is the great thing we caught a bunch of quality and all of them flipping , as this is what I taught her to do and as you can see from the pictures , she is damn good at it. I leave tomorrow but will be back on the 4th of Oct. I plan on fishing about two weeks so if you want to come get in touch with me. I will be taking Sugar and Falcon trips in Oct. Falcon is really on fire and Sugar is always a little better so lets get a trip on the books.
Here are a few pictures of the fish I caught today and one 8lb I caught yesterday with Jimmy and Rusty. Jimmy and Rusty and I caught about 150 fish in the three day trip. I would have had a few more pictures of them with some 5 lb fish , but they had them on there camera. Anyway we did not catch but three fish over 8 lbs on this three day trip , but yesterday we had a bunch of 4 and 5 pound fish. Today Tim and I went out to check some water and I had a 9 lb 2 oz on our first stop. We pulled off that and went looking for some more. Tim has really been kicking out the numbers and 30 pound plus stringer . I will only be around here about another week , so If you want to go fishing give me a call, and If I can not take you Tim can. Look for a 50 to 100 fish day and 30 plus pounds on your best five. You can really catch them anyway you want right now. As we did that today. My 9 lb 2 oz came on a deep crank , My favorite way to catch them. You can catch the 1 to 2 pounders till your arm falls off and to rest you can go a little deeper and get a toad every once in a while. Call me or email me and lets go.
It sure was good to finally get back on Falcon today. I had Jimmy and Rusty today from Tenn. Jimmy first fish was a 8 lb and his second fish went 9lb 2 oz this really helped us off to a great start. We caught a bunch of good fish today and our numbers were not great but we went for quality we probably boated around 50 today and ended up with about 34 lbs for our best five. I know it was a hot one today and I was out of fishing shape. today was my first time to be on the water since June. I should be in more turn with the fish tomorrow. Looking for some big ones. I have Jimmy and Rusty for two more days.
As you can see by the pictures I have done an facelift on the place. I have added a few acres to the pond and had to build a bridge to be able to get to both sides. The bridge is 64 feet across and has a 8 foot fishing deck of the south side. All I need now is some water. The golf range is really taking shape as well as the grass is starting to really cover . This is all I am going to do for now , as I will return to my real JOB come Monday. I start on Sugar Lake Tuesday with a three day trip. I plan on being in Zapata for a few weeks so if you want to come fishing , get in touch with me. Falcon is on fire right now as The size and numbers are way up. I still have one spot left on the Peacock Bass trip in Jan.
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.
