April 18th, 2014

If you are wondering about my no report yesterday. I had Bass Champs guys yesterday, today and again Sat and Sun. I usually do not report on the trips due to request from the anglers. I usually just show them spots and a cast or to for the line up and after that we spend the day scouting new water but the same pattern and let them make the choice on the where and when they want to fish the spots. If you want to know did we catch fish , yes but not very many. My guys usually do very well in the tournament and I expect these three teams will do well. Falcon is tough , but there are some big fish to be had and someone will get on them. I think it will take 21 to 23 pounds to win this one a little down from the last one.

April 16 002 April 16 003 April 16 004 April 16 005Well back on Falcon today. I took out David and Dafana today, and yes I spelled her name right. We got off to a great start as Dafana caught this nice fish on her very first cast of the day. It took David a little more time but he put a good one in the boat early as well. After that the wind just started kicking our tails and we had to go to more protected stuff, we still caught some fish but they were all small at that point. David did break off a nice fish , but we do not know how good as she never showed herself. I am sure ready for a break in the wind we have had for more than a week now.

Although we hit the worst weather you could hit in Mid April we still caught some really nice fish including an 11 lb 3 oz by Darrell . You should not need me to tell you what fish it is in the pictures. Jeff had his share of nice fish as well. We were blown off the water the first day at noon and today the north wind was still kicking , but we braved it out there anyway. I never got to cross the lake and fish some of my good stuff west. This lake is really set to be a great year. As posted earlier I plan on doing Sugar Trips starting in May. By then we should not have to deal with a cold front with 30 plus winds like we had. I forgot to mention that Darrell got his ass handed to him on really big fish before he finally landed his trophy . The rooms were great and the food was even better . Even though the weather was bad we had a blast.

I will be fishing Sugar Lake Monday and Tuesday . The weather looks a little dicey due to a major front hitting Monday around noon. It is what it is and we will just deal with it. I will make a post when I get back on Tuesday night, so look for it as I know you want to see how it is. As stated in an earlier report I will start my guide trips to Sugar Lake in May. By May we should not have to deal with cold fronts LOL. I have fished Sugar for years and I like it the best May thru Sept . Even with us going a little earlier than that this time , and the weather looking not so good I still expect us to catch some really big fish and a good numbers as well. North wind is not good on any lake , but Sugar has some protection if we need it. Let you know when I get back.

Took out Steven and Danny today. These guys are just getting into bass fishing and they learned very well what mother nature can throw at you . The wind today was just brutal . We braved it anyway and went south to the Tigers , where we had to stay all day. We did catch some fish, just not any size. I did loose a really big fish today, but I was sitting on my butt in the back seat and did not get that big hook set. She came up and jumped to show herself and I had her on for a while. She just came unplugged . I am taking tomorrow to help with James and Tommy with the weigh in. They had 32 teams sign up and looks like they got a great weather day for it . The Wind for the past week had been tough . I have a trip Monday and Tusesday on Sugar and from the looks of it we are getting the wind and weather again. I am readay for some calm HOT days.

April 11 001 April 11 002Out with Tate and Melissa again today. We knew we had some wind but was not to be as bad as yesterday, so we headed south. Melissa got us on the board right off the bat with a nice fish she caught on a deep crank, after that we did ok on numbers but other than a 5 pounder I caught , the rest were just small fish. I did loose a really big fish today on the texas rig, well just to be honest she kicked my ass and broke me off at the boat. Tate caught a 9 pounder on the crank bait , but it was a blue cat. As always I love fishing with these two.

I had Tate and Melissa today. This is their 6th year to fish with me . We were hit with the mother load of wind today. To make it even worse Tate is sick as a dog. He spent most of the day laying down in the boat. Melissa she hung in there and saved the Big S for us . She put a three pounder in the boat. We called it quits early today, so Tate could hit the sack and try to get to felling better so we can get after them tomorrow. The wind is forecast to be stiff , but not as bad as today. If Tate feels like it we will brave the big water and go for the big bite. They have had them dream about days on Falcon Lake and know that it is tough this year. All we want is a couple of big fish . that is our goal tomorrow.

April 9 001 April 9 002 april 9 004April 9 003Took out Octauio and Mamo today, yes I know what names. We caught a real windy day so I could not do to much offshore main lake stuff so we fished the pockets out deep on the secondary points and such. We did not boat but four fish today but we had Octauio had a great fish 9lb 10 oz . I was pictured with a 7 lb 3 oz . These guys were fun to fish with and I know I will have them back later when it get hot and hopefully less wind. the big fish was caught on the deep crank today.

Well I finished up with Mike and John today. Knowing we had a stiff north wind coming I put in at the State Park and we fished from there to the Tigers and Back. We caught at first everything but a bass, at cat, a drum and than Mike finally caught a bass . I took a picture of it with my phone, but did not load it up on my computer . It was a nice fish but not picture worthy of the site LOL. We really had a tough go at it today, but we did not give in to the shallow water , we stayed to our guns and stayed deep today . I even spent some time in 25 to 30 foot. They are going to fish for another 3 or 4 days on their own and I wish them luck. Just to let you know , I will be taking guide trips for Sugar lake starting in May . Sugar lake is full and should be really good as the fish go to the summer pattern. I have been fishing Sugar lake for a super long time and know it well. When you book Sugar you need to fish Two or more days as they have a very nice place to stay on the lake. The food is great too. I will do a one day but the price for a one day is $600 , due to the time and the travel. Two or more days are just $500 per day . Also on the trips where we stay, we fish a lot longer days. This Sugar trip is something you should consider as Falcon is really tough right now. Your odds of that DD fish are much better on Sugar . All you need to go to Sugar Lake is a passport.

April 7 001 April 7 002 April 7 003 April 7 004I had Mike and John today. I had them in 2012 when were  catching 40 to 50 fish a day and they understood that it was not going to be that way today. They are Falcon Veterans so we were only after a few big bites today. We did get a few good bites. I had another fish not pictured that was about 6 pounds and Mike lost another fish at the net that would push 7 . It was a perfect weather day and we fished a bunch of good deep spots. Like I told them we were not going to get bit much , but when we did it would be quality. We will be after the big bite again tomorrow. We caught fish on Hammerhead jig, Crank and Mag Fluke today.
