First of all I am sorry about the picture load up. The ones that are sideways were taken on Wally’s phone and is not the correct format for my site. I just spent Monday thru , Thursday on Falcon with Kenneth and Wally. It was a very hot week with temp 103 to 107 every day. Just what I like on Falcon. Monday we found our fish or should I say our quality fish in 10 to 12 foot of water and the week went along these fish started to adjust to the heat and move deeper and deeper each day. We had to keep adjusting as the day and the week got longer . We weighted every fish that is pictured and they were 7 tp 8 lb 14 oz , our biggest. We did not weigh or take a picture of anything that was under 7 lb. We did catch quite a few 4 to 6 pound fish every day with the exception of Tuesday and that is when we had to adjust our approach to stay on a quality bite. We caught all but one of our big fish on deep diving cranks. the last day , Thursday we had to go deeper than 16 feet to get a quality bite. We fished the main lake , humps , ledges and points and they had to have gravel or rock. We did not check or do any flipping so I can not vogue for that bite. Falcon is really getting low and is dropping at a rate of about 3 inch a day witch is a foot every four days. This with the water color is making Falcon fish very very small. All out fishing was done in the tigers and south as the water is very dirty from there north. I you want to catch some really nice fish stay in the clean water and fish any thing that has rock or gravel on it . If you can contact if with a crank than use it as this was the very best for us on Big fish. If it is deeper like 16 to 24 feet use a jig or big soft plastics with 1/2 oz weight so you can fill and stay in contact with the rock. I had a blessing when I got home today as my pond caught 4 to 5 feet of water last night as I was really worried about the level and a fish kill. thank God for the fain, it came just in time.

I just got back from a 5 day fishing trip to Falcon. Wally and I hit the water Monday and man was it one of them days . We were on fish and Really Big Ones. the problem was we did not put some of them in the boat. The good new is that we got to at least see them. We did manage a few with the best just a little under 9 lbs . Tuesday was not as good as Monday for big fish but we still caught some nice ones. Jimbo  joined us Thur, and Friday. As always he brought his clicker. our best day on the clicker was 59 and our worst day was 41. We had a good 5 fish stringer all 5 days with a fish over 8 lbs 4 out of the five days . Tuesday was the only day we did not land a big fish . We did have a couple of chances. Wally will be at Falcon for a few months and I will be back down in a few weeks . Kenneth my Tournament partner is going to join us and try to help us put some of these monster in the boat. It was still fun just to get them on and battle them. Water level has dropped quit a bit since I was down in Feb. I think about 10 feet. Sorry about the pictures being out of whack, they were shot on different phones and my format is set for just mine. I’m to tired from the drive to redo this post. But I think you can get the picture. All of out better fish came offshore on deep structure. There is a million 2 pounders shallow.

Well it is time to start thinking about getting onboard for another great Amazon Peacock Bass Trip with us this coming Jan. I have the boat set for the 19th thru the 26th on the Amazon Lord. This is a first class trip and is going to be on the Rio Negro. I only have 10 spots left to fill and this trip is priced right at only $4800 per person. I promise you this is the very best trip for the money. Our guides and staff are top notch and we will catch a bunch of big fish. Contact me as soon as you can as the spots are limited and will go fast. I do not want you to be left out.

I finally after a while on the computer got my pictures where they would post. These are the three 8 lb plus Kenneth and I caught when we check our South area on Falcon Sat before the tournament . We were both very excited about our work that we had put in. We caught these three fish in about 30 min in 3 out of our four spots . But things change , that is why they call it fishing. I just posted this to check my site . At least now I can load up some pictures and will do so when I get to Amistad in a week or so.

I am back in Abilene after spending two week down south in Zapata. I got to fish Falcon about 7 days including the Bass Champs Tournament on Sat. Kenneth and I were very disappointed . We had put our work in and were on a very good pre spawn pattern . We checked our two prime areas of the lake . Friday we checked our North area and put together a 6 pound average ,so we felt that we had a good chance at a 30 lb bag. Sat we checked our South spots and we had 4 down there that were the same pattern. We hit 3 of the 4 and caught 3 fish in the 8 lb range. so we decided to go south for the tournament. A three hour fog delay and a 80 degree plus day our big fish move on up to where we could not find a big bite. We caught 3 pounders till we got sick of catching them due to we were on so much better. We did get a check for finishing 14th but very disappointing for sure. Falcon form what I saw during my practice is really in great shape and a lot of good fish are going to be caught . We fish Amistad next .

Falcon is alive and doing very well. I have been on the water for 5 days now and have looked at a lot of this great lake. from what I have seen and fished . Falcon is for sure in the upswing of being somewhat as what she is known for. Now do I think she will return to like she was in 2011. I do not think so. I would want it to get full to do that . In my 47 years of fishing Falcon I have seen what has happened after she has been full about 6 times. 1993 and 2011 have been the best I have ever seen it . I still have two more day before off limits and I have been lucky to have great weather to check Falcon out. I sure have brought back some great memories as I have been looking at old files and pictures and reports of the great past years I have enjoyed Falcon. I am going to load up some pictures of old times in the next day or two that you would probably like to see so tune back in and take a look at the past .

Well I am sure glad to be back down on Falcon this week . It has been a while. the weather so far has been nice  in the 70’s for the most part and the forecast looks pretty good for the rest of the week. I will be spending several more days on Falcon and I will head down to Sugar come Monday. I have been looking more than I have been fishing and so far from what I have seen . This lake looks great. I have managed to catch only 19 fish so far , but I really have not tried to pound any spot, as I am getting ready for Bass Champs come Feb 10th. Now when I go down to Sugar I will indeed try to pound them there. I will let you know how it goes in the up coming days.

I am still however still doing my groups for Peacock Bass Trips in the Amazon. I have acquired a great trip slated for Jan 18th thru the 26th in Jan 2019. This trip will be on the Amazon Lord and be on the Rio Negro. I have held the price at $4900.00 per person and that is a great price on a first class trip. As of now I do have some spots to fill and I want to fill them fast , where everyone can book a flight early for a great price. Booking now will make it so much cheaper . Call me and get on the list . My new number is 325-864-8001. Just to let some of you know . I will return and do some more guiding in the future. I will let you know when that time comes.

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.
