Sep 16 001 Sep 16 002 Sep 16 008 Sep 16 009 Sep 16 010 Sep 16 011Well back from Sugar Lake. I got a last min trip to Sugar from an long time client of mine. Mike and Emile came down on the spur of the moment from Lake Charles. Mike normally flies in to Zapata in his plane , but with the weather we had he jumped in his car and drove. We hit Sugar early Monday morning, met with a north wind and overcast and misty skies. Also Sugar is really catching some water it was up over 2 feet since is was there last week. Monday was a grind , as we only boated 19 fish for the day. The overcast and new water had the fish on the move and they were not bunched up on spots like they have been. Late in the day it started to clear a little and the sun popped out a little and that is when we caught the most of our fish on Monday. Today however it started out clear and the fish responded. Mike caught an 8 pounder early and we were getting quit a few bites. I lost two really nice fish on the crankbait. Emile caught an 8 pounder not to long after Mike boated his. The only problem with the day was that we had to get off the water at 10:30 am as they had to get headed back . I sure was trying to get them to stay as we left the fish biting like crazy, that was had for me to leave . I head to Texoma in the morning for the Platinum tournament. Oct is starting to book up so if you want to came down , get in touch with me. Like stated in this report Sugar is catch some water and it is going to just make it better .

20140912_190654_resized 20140912_182727_resizedAnother fun day on the water with Jay. Jay and I went out on a mission today, a little different from yesterday. Our wives got together and ordered up a fish fry. That meant a trip to the dam and catch some eating size fish. Folks let me tell you again, Falcon lake is just full of pound to 2 pound fish. I can not even tell you how many we caught, but the number is staggering. People talk about catching 100 fish a day on a lake in Mexico, well you do not have to travel that far and pay that much to catch 100 fish 1 to 3 pounds with a good one mixed in . Both Jay and I believe right now on a good day that can be done here . The deal going right now is if you want numbers you fish for numbers If you want quality you fish for less numbers , bigger baits and catch a better quality fish. Yesterday we fished for a big bite and we damn sure got them , it was just one of the days Jay and I did not put them in the boat, but we had our chance several times. The weather looks dicey for tomorrow or we would be right back out there. Well the fish was great and we put a dent in it as you can tell. It is always great to have Jay and his wife and kids over.

sept 11 014 sept 11 015I gave Jay a call this morning and we hit the water to do a little scouting. Also we are working on a video. I have not used my Gopro latley and the battery was not charged and it did not last till we finally got on the bigger bite. We did get the big bite later in the day. I did get a little video early of some fish and we are going to continue tomorrow with the video efforts , with a fully charged battery. I do have some video of Jay calling his shot on a big fish and beleive me he called it right , but got his ass kicked and she broke him off. I thought he was going to eat his rod for a min. Folks this  lake is in great shape on the amount of fish she has in it. As of now you can still catch some big fish and a good numbers of just fish. Our future looks off the chart. We are going to hit it hard tomorrow and I hope to have the video up tomorrow as well.

Here are just a few of the big fish that my clients caught on Sugar lake last week I had three different groups come enjoy the fantastic fishing on Sugar. I read a post on the TFF last night saying Picachos was the best Lake in Mexico. Now I have not been there , but the word out on Picachos is that you can catch 100 bass a day, but you might have a 3 pound average. That is great fishing and I understand that that is fun. For me and the clients that I fish . I have the belief that they are paying me to catch quality fish and big fish. Sugar is a lake that you will catch 30 to 60 fish a day and the average is going to be 6 pounds plus. That is not a guess , that is what my boat has produced on that lake 95% of the time . Than you have to look at the price difference to fish Sugar compared to Sugar  I get $500 per day and the rooms are $100 per night . This last week on Sugar produce 4 DD fish and 10 more over 9 pounds and you cant not even keep up with the 6 to 8 pounders. Just scroll back and just look at the pictures from Aug till now . Most every fish pictured on the reports are 7 pounds and up. Folks this is just my Boat. I really think Picachos will be a great lake if it is managed correctly, in a few more years . It is a new lake and needs to grow up for a bigger average. I am no knocking the lake , so if you want to catch 100 2 to 3 pounders , it is the place to go If you want to catch 30 6 to 10 pounders now Sugar is you best lake in the country to do that. Sugar is a big lake compared to Picachos and there is absolutely now pressure. I was the only one on the 44,000 ac lake until Sat and Sun. and than there were less that 8 boats both days.

I had a full week this last week of Aug. I had three different trips and they all were great. I took Darrell and Andrew this Sat and Sun to wrap the week up . This is Darrell third trip and Andrew’s second trip with me to Sugar this year. The weather the first day was great , but today we had a little wind to deal with . We caught 50 fish the first day and 28 fish today. We had such a great first day , we decided to hog hunt a little deeper today for the first 2 or 3 hours and well it did not take long as Andrew caught his personal best a 10 lb 2 oz brute of a fish. It was before 7 am and I had to put it in the livewell for 15 to 20 min so it would be light enough to take a good picture. What a way to start the day. This fish was Andrew’s second personal best on Sugar Lake . He caught a 10 lb even on his last trip. We had a best five 40 pound bag both days , but today Andrew had one by himself. Andrew and his dad had a little bet today, well I will just say the Darrell is a little light in the back pocket after today. Aug had come and gone and what a month it has been. Folks it just does not get much better than the way Sugar is fishing right now. The bad thing is I have no trips booked down there for the next two weeks, so I guess I will just go whack them by myself. Somebody had got to do it.

I took Ron and Dustin down for a two day trip. We could not have had better weather HOT and CALM. Just what you want when fishing Sugar Lake. We really smacked the big fish on this trip. On day one we boated 34 fish and our best five went 44 lbs anchored bay a 10 lb 7 oz brute. On day two we boated 40 fish our best five was 41 lbs anchored by a 10 lb 3 oz. Most of our fish were 5 pounds and up. I tried to keep count and I think we had 20 fish over 7 pounds. Our big 5 for the two day trip I do know we had 2 over 10 pounds and 3 over 9 pounds. I want to say something to some of my regular clients that have fished with me in the past . I am open damn near the whole month of Sept and with the fish that I am on right now and have been on for a while I can not believe  that I am not full for Sept. This time of year is as good as it gets, I need some trips . I have made a ton of trips to Sugar Lake since April and have had absolutely no trouble. So get in touch with me and lets go have fun like the ones that have been. I leave again in the morning with clients and this will be their third trip to Sugar  with me this year. Again I am sorry about all the pictures , but I culled all I could.

I took Jerry for his very first time. I do not think he was disappointed. Jerry and I just flat out hammered them . The fun part is that we caught most all of them on cranks. Jerry and I boated 77 fish in three days and the great thing we did not have 10 fish under 5 lbs. Most of them were 6 to 8 lb 11 oz our biggest , but we had three over eight on day two. Jerry had not fished a crank very much, but he learned real fast how to land these mean fish , after he lost some big fish. Cranking is my favorite way to catch them and man was it fun. Since there was only two of us I got to fish quite a bit. Let me tell you if you like to catch quality fish like no where else than you really need to book a trip with me to Sugar Lake. If the weather is good I am going to smack them. This time of year is the best time to come , because it is hot and the wind most of the time is light and that is just what you want on Sugar Lake. I have Sept days wide open , so PLEASE give me a call or get in touch with me off my site. I leave for another two day trip in the morning so I will post another report Friday. Sorry about all the pictures I could not cull any more.

Aug 23 001 Aug 23 002Out with Tim and Smitty again today. We hoped for a little less wind today and we finally got that after lunch today. We fished hard for several hours and caught fish , but all on the small size. Finally late in the day after the wind had let up . I pulled up on a main lake point and , BAM they had back to back doubles and Smitty with another personal best. They whack on them for a while catching several. After that slowed down , I hit another point and we caught about 5 more on it. they boated about 20 fish today. I really enjoyed fishing with these two and I always like it when I introduce someone new to the sport. I think Smitty really liked bass fishing.

Aug 22 001 Aug 22 002 Aug 22 003 Aug 22 004 Aug 22 005 Aug 22 006Wow I worked on Falcon today for a change. I took out Tim and Smitty today. Tim has been here before , but Smitty had not. In fact Smitty had never caught a bass before. Well it did not take him very long as he was putting up personal best after personal best. The wind was not helping today as it was very brutal out there today. We hung in there and my new batteries got a good test today and they held up , no problem. We boated 18 fish today and lost several more . I have them again tomorrow and hope to get a little breck with this wind.
