My schedule of open dates have been updated on my schedule page on this site thru May. I have done this to let you know if you are planning on coming to fish with me on Falcon or Sugar you really need to get on the books as I have a very limited days left from Feb thru May. As stated in my fishing reports I have been talking about taking care of my mom’s estate since she passed in Aug. This estate is a family business started way back in 1956 by my parents and is still in business today. I have been asked to take charge of this estate and get it back to the thriving business it has been in the past for years. I have agreed to take on the challenge and I will have to spend the next 3 or 4 months doing so. I still will be doing my guide business as it is my first love. All said I will have very limited days that I can do it and the open days are up on my schedule thru May as this is my goal to get the business in order. I will be back home to Falcon Wed or Thursday and I will be guiding the whole month of Feb . As of now I only have 12 days still open in Feb I need to fill. March is nearly full as I only have 8 days open . April is a great month for Falcon and Sugar and I only have 5 days open. May even better as I only have 13 days open. I look forward to this challenge , but as said fishing is my first love so please if you want to fish with me get your dates early . My rates are still the same $400 per day on Falcon and $500 per day on Sugar . If you look and my schedule says Off and you need that time frame you can always contact me or call me and something can be worked out.

Just to let you know I still have not made it back to Falcon. I am still here in Abilene dealing with the estate of my mother that passed away in Aug. From the input that I have been receiving about Falcon , I have not missed much. Everyday I dig into my mom’s estate I realize that it is more time I have to spend here in Abilene. Plans are to get back sometime next week as I have a very busy Feb booked on Falcon. I will also have more info on the Peacock trip that I just got back from Monday as well. Also we have the trips planned for next year already started. I am taking names as of now for the next trips scheduled for next Jan. We have done our work and next year will be even better than ever before. I will be happy to talk to anyone that might have any questions about the trips. We have worked very hard to get the best of everything down there and the price will even be lower for everyone that wants to go. I have had some emails and text about my fishing reports , so please bare with me as I get thru this estate for my family.

I was lucky enough to spend the last 16 days in Brazil on the Rio Negro in the Amazon. This trip is a trip of a lifetime for anyone. Its is not just the fishing , but all that goes with it . The wildlife and landscape is just out of this world. Being there two week gave me the time to enjoy the rest of the Amazon has to offer other than the best peacock fishing in the world. A good Peacock trip starts with a good outfitter and I 100% believe we have the best there is. There were over 2000 peacock bass caught on this two week trip and the quality was just outstanding with hundreds of these fish over 10 pounds. 22 pounds was the biggest and there was two of them caught on the same day. We had 3 more over twenty as well. I personal caught 28 fish over 10 pounds and I had two 19 pounders and 2 18 pounders for my biggest four. Sheretta caught here biggest a 15 pound speckle peacock and on that day she really put it on me. I had a 10 , 11 and a 16 and she had a 10 , 11, 12 ,14 and a 15. needless to say we had a good day. As always I met some great new people on the two trips and when you are on the boat with them for 7 days and nights you really get to know and enjoy their personalities. I am already putting together the trips for next year as I speek. We are going to offer this trip out starting right now for the first week of Jan. We have the bigger boat in operation as I switched to fish off of it the second week just to check it out and let me tell you it is world class, food and service. It is 30.5 feet longer than the Santana and the rooms are a little bigger witch makes a lot of difference. Our trips are first class and Mark , Charlie and I make sure of that as we take down and have ready , better quality baits and equipment to fish with than the regular equipment the boat has to offer. Our food is different as well as we have more American food that Brazilian food. We want everyone that books and goes with us to have the best trip and the best chance tp0 catch some of the giant Peacocks. and we do have the equipment to make that happen. The first boat out next year only has a few spots left and it will be the boat /Trip with all the couples . I am going to work on the second week starting now and I will do a third and fourth if needed. We do have a great trip with a lot of options now with the two boats . Please give me a call or email if you have any questions . I am working on a video and will have it up soon.

KODAK Digital Still Camera KODAK Digital Still CameraWell we just about have 2014 in the books . I will spend my last day of this year on the water with two of my good friends and fello guides, Jay and Tony. Come tomorrow I will headed to Brazil in search for a few of these creatures. The word form down there is the river is droping and this should make things good. 2014 has been a trying year on Falcon, and as alot of you know I did most of my trips on Sugar lake this year. Even though Falcon is starting to bounce back , Sugar is allready there. Sugar lake at this time is flooded and I stopped my trips a few weeks back, but come Feb I will be guideing back down there again. If you are planning on fishing Sugar Lake with me this spring and summer , now is the time to get it in the books , because I will fill up fast as all my clients from last year are for sure comming back , after the year we had on this special lake. Now I am not pushing Sugar over Falcon, but just saying , I am going to guide mostly on where I think the best lake to catch numbers of quality fish . Unless things change , numbers are great on Falcon , but numbers of quality fish are better on Sugar. I want to take this time to thank everyone that I had the pleasure to be in the boat with this year and hope I have another chance at being in the boat with them again this year. I love my job and it is because of you that I get top do what I love . Thanks again and again for your support. I will be unable to be reached come Jan 1st till the 18th . If you want to come fishing on Falcon or Sugar Jay or Tony can for sure take care of that. I have taken Tony and Jay to Sugar lake and they can even take you to Sugar as well. Jay’s number is 956-754-0626 and Tony’s number is 918-964-0049. Please if you need something give them a call. They are both great guys and for sure will answer and questions you might have and work their tail off for you if you go out with one of them. Happy New Year !!!!!!! See you the 18th.

Today I had Jeremy. This was my first day back on the water after my Christmas break. I looked at the forecast early this morning and it did not look like it was going to be to bad. Well the weather just got worst as the day went along. We had a terrible day just catching small fish everywhere we went . I think I had two big bites and did not land either one of them. The north wind was pretty nasty out there today , but we did manage to stay out and fish it. This was a Christmas gift from his wife and even though we really enjoyed the day . I give him a free one day trip and told him to use it when the weather was nice.

20141220_181854_resizedHere in Abilene spending some great time with my family and friends. Pictured is my daughter Morgan and grandbaby Brielle . We had our big Christmas get together last night and All the Family was there . I am still stuffed with all kinds of good food and goodies. Played golf with the big group at Fairway Oaks yesterday and left there with my tail between my legs. We played from the tips and wow that course is long. It was cold and the greens were like putting on concrete as they were so fast I never could get that speed dialed in. Today I will play Diamondback with my friends and hope to fair a little better today. This course is not as long and the greens are fast but not like yesterday. I plan on returning back to Zapata the 26th as I have a trip on the 27th. I still do not have a trip for the 28th and 29th and sure could use one before I leave on the 31st to Brazil. If you want to give Falcon a try with me , please get in touch with me for the 28th or 29th. Falcon has been good to me the last 3 or 4 times out.
