I am here in Abilene. It has been very windy since I have been back with the exception of one day and I put the boat on the water on one of my favorite lakes , Coleman, I only had about 3 hours to fish and caught 7 for my efforts . Nothing big , but a lot of fun. Speaking of fishing I still have some dates to fill in November. I will be down at Falcon starting November 7th and will fish till the 21st. November is a great month to fish Falcon and Sugar . Get in touch with me and lets go. I also want to let you know that I have had a Peacock Trip spot come open and I need to fill it . Cost is $4500 and the trip is Jan 21st thru the 28th. It is really shapeing up to be a great trip as the water is started down and they are already catching good numbers and some big fish this year. If you are interested get in touch with me.
I am back in Abilene at my second job. I took out Nelson and Jason on Falcon yesterday. It was a little windy most of the day but the wind did die down a little after 1 pm. We had a good day , considering. We played with the shallow fish all morning , and when the wind let up , we went hog hunting and we did find a few. We had two picture fish , but Nelson lost a big one right at the boat. He got all the fun out of her and we all got a great look at her , all we did not get was a weight or a picture , but she , no doubt would have anchored our stringer were well. Man I really had a good 13 day stay back home in Zapata. I did 9 trips and had a very good trip each time out with some great people and little 8 year old Riley. He is really hooked on fishing now, not so much the video games . I am planning on opening up Nov 7th thru the 20th for guiding on Falcon and Sugar. I know from about 44 years on these two lake that it is going to be great. Please get in touch with me and get you spot locked down . Thanks to all for the great trips and fishing this trip. As always I love to be on the water with good people.
Here is my Sugar post from Monday, Tuesday, Wed. I am reposting Tony’s pictures from Monday because I think I left one or two out. Anyway, as you can see we caught some nice fish in three days. the weather was just great and the fishing – catching was off the charts We caught over 100 all three days. The thing was we had non stop action between big bites. I am off today (thur) but will be on Falcon this Friday and Sat.. I really enjoyed all my six clients . Tim and Tony, L.D. and Joe, and Dave and George. Thanks guys for the fun trips.
Sorry for the late post. I have been busy and having a blast. I took out Paul,Linsey, and Riley here on Falcon . Riley and Linzy were new to fishing. It did not take them long to learn how to catch fish and 8 year old Riley is just a natural. He caught several fish and once he learned how to cast caught 15 on his own. I had Tim and Tony on Sugar yesterday and we did some whacking on some fish. 121 in the boat and some nice ones . Tony caught the most and the biggest. I am off to Sugar this morning for two day I have a four man group so Carlos will be helping me. I will post when I get back.
I am back here in Zapata and it is great to get back on the water with some great clients. I fished Tuesday here on Falcon with David and Joel. We found it a little slower than when I guided two weeks ago. We still caught a good number of fish but had none over 5 pounds to take a picture of . David did however finally get the big ones to bite as they stayed and fished the spots the next couple of days. He texted me some pictures of some nice fish. Jimbo ad I headed to Sugar lake for Wed and Thurs and Sugar was still Sugar. The lake was up about 5 feet from my last visit , but we found a ton of fish and caught some really big fish as well. We caught about 140 fish in a day and a half and a 9 lb 7 oz was the biggest. We caught a bunch of 4 to 5 pound fish not pictured . It was hot and calm both days just like I want it. I am still going to be here for another week and I do have a day or two open it you want to come. I am booked Sat, Sun , Monday, Tues , Wed, open thur, booked Friday the 14th and sat the 15, so I only have thur the 13 open and sun the 16th open . Come on and get you some of this great fishing.
I am on my way back to Zapata. I start with a trip on Falcon the 4th and then it is on to Sugar Lake the 6th and 7th. I will be down for a couple of weeks and I have a few days open if you want to fish. I was really on the fish a couple of weeks ago and am looking forward to get back on the water. I will have a fishing report up on how it goes tomorrow.
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.
