It has been to long since I have posted anything. I am still here in Abilene. I did fish in the Bass Champs championship on the Red River. This was a tough tournament to say the least. Out of 233 there were only two limits caught and a two day 10 fish stringer won it with just over 20 pounds. Kenneth and I caught two good weighers   on Sat and none on Sun. The weather was great , there is just not many fish in the river as most everyone found out. Falcon and Sugar got a much needed shot of water and this will male both of these lakes so good for a while. I had sold my boat when I had the chance before they caught this water so for now I am boatless and unable to guide. I do however plan on getting another boat soon and will keep you posted as to when I will start back up. As of now if you want to go fishing I have a couple of good guides that will be happy to take you out and they are very very good on Falcon and Sugar. I have a new phone number as well if you want to take note . 325 864 8001.

Just back from the Amazon. What a great trip. I have some great pictures of this trip and big fish, but I am still having trouble with my new server about loading them up. We are working on the problem and I hope  we can get it figured out. I went out on a different ship this trip and being in August I went to a different river as well . We set out on the Madeira river  and then hit the Canuma river . The boat we were on was The Amazon Load. I have been on other boat and this boat is a big step above the other ones. Everything about this trip from Boat , Staff, Guides and food etc were the best you could have had. We traveled 100’s of miles and fished some great water and caught 1135 Peacocks . The river was still a little to high but our guides worked their tails off. We had several big fish on this trip topping out with Kenny getting his personal best a 18lb I will have pictures later and for those that know Kenny he had his shirt on this time. I have another trip planned the third week in Jan of 2019 and it will be back on the Rio Negro as this is the best area for big fish when the river is right . Jan over the history is one of the best times to fish the Rio Negro because Historically low at this time. I will for sure and do have the Amazon Lord booked and only 18 people can go, so get in touch with me early and get on the books so you can get a cheap flight. My phone number has changed so take note  325-864-8001 . Call me if you have any questions. I will have a full report with pictures as soon as I get this server problem fixed.

I know it has been a while since I have posted anything , but I have taken the summer of this year,to spend time in Abilene to get a lot of unfinished business taken care of. I will be leaving to Brazil this Friday to go Peacock Bass fishing in the Amazon. This year we are going to try a different river , the Madeira . It is known for the shear numbers of quality fish in the 8 to 12 pound range with a big one mixed in. Also Calvin , is planning another trip this Jan back on the Rio Negro . If you are interested please get in touch with me. I have been able with this time off to get most everything done on the estate and most important I have my pond finished and about half full. I have it stacked very well. Falcon and Sugar still remain very low and if we do not get some rain soon and they start irrigation , it will not be good for these two lakes. I am going to wait and see before I book any trips down there this spring. I have some very good lakes here around Abilene and they are full and they are doing very well. I will let you know on that on a later date. I will be posting about my Brazil trip when I get back around the 20th so look for that. I finally have my site working right and should have plenty of pictures. See you then.

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.
