Just a note to let you know what has been going on. I am in Abilene and I had planned on doing a lot of work on the rent houses and some fishing and some golfing with friends. I have done quit a bit of work some golf and no fishing. The reason for no fishing is that every day the wind has been 20 to 30 since I have been back in Abilene. I still plan on checking some of my favorite lakes as soon as it calms down a little. I will now start booking trips to Falcon and Sugar for Aug . I plan on heading back down around the 10th so if you want to come let me know. Lets talk about Brazil and Peacock Bass Fishing . As some of you know I do trips to Brazil in Jan and I have two trips on the books . Jan 14th thru the 21st and Jan 21st thru the 28th. The first trip is on the great ship the Santana and is at a great price of $4395 per person. I still have 8 spots open on that trip. The second trip is on the Lord . The Lord is a smaller ship and this is a small group of us hard core guys. I only have 1 spot left on this elite trip . the price on this small group trip is $5395 per person. I know a lot of concern about the Zika virus is all over the media . My trips are on the Rio Negro and The Rio Negro is a river chain that does not have mosquitoes and so there is no threat of Zika . I have been on 6 trips and I have yet to see a mosquito on any of them. These two trips are top notch trips and everything is furnished . Flight to Brazil is not included . If you have any question or want to go , get in touch with me.
Well I am in Abilene and finally have good internet service. TWC never fixed my problem in Zapata over the 7 weeks I was there , so I told them to just forget it. I am posting my last 4 days on Sugar . I had Wally for two days. It did not start out well as I blew a lower unit going to my first spot. The picture is a Mexican netter hauling us back to the ramp. Wally and I had to go get another lower unit, thanks to Carlos he had one and we got it put on and hit the water for about 2 hours in the eve the first day. Even though we had trouble we were able to catch some monster fish. Day two was just as good and we got to fish all day. The next trip was with two of my favorite clients Jimmy and Kathy. Man did we have a good time and catch a lot of big fish as shone by the pictures . I forgot my phone the first day or there would have been more pictures. I did get Jimmy to take a picture or two and email them to me. I will be in Abilene the whole month of July so I will not be taking trips. I do however got someone there to take you out if you want to go. Get in touch with me and I will hook you up. It was a fun May and June guiding down on Falcon and Sugar , Now it is time for a little work on the estate and some golf with good friends.
I am still without internet. I have had two great trips to report about on Sugar. I guide today on Falcon. I will make a combined report today or thur. I have some great pictures of some big fish to share.
Here are the pictures from my last Sugar Trip. I also threw in one of me here on Falcon. I went out on Falcon for a couple of hours yesterday, to do a little scouting and got of the water to watch dustin J. win the open. Arron and Kurt had one really windy day on Sugar and one really nice day . We did catch a bunch of fish both days . I forgot my phone the first day or I would have taken a lot more pictures of some good fish, not monsters this trip 8 lb was the best caught by Kurt, the amazing thing is he used spinning gear the whole time on this trip and was able to land this pig. It also cost him a fish or two as well. I will be at Sugar Wed and Thur. I still do not have my service fixed at the house so I do not have internet , maybe they will fix it this time around , It has been three weeks, only in Zapata.
Im back from Sugar. I had Arron and Captain Kurt. We had one really windsy day on thur and a great day on Friday. We caught some really nice fish both days. I have several great pictires. My damn internet is stll out so i will post them later doing that by phone service is to slow. I stll have some days open if you would like to fish Falcon or Sugar they both are doing well
Well I am back from Sugar where I had Scott again from a few weeks back. Scott brought down David . David had never bass fished before and of course had never caught one or see one. What a place to start his fishing . David had to stay with a open face real and rod as he did not know how to use a baitcaster. It was a treat watching him get his butt kicked a few times. He really whacked some nice fish on day one and about 11 am he was pooped and I had to take him to the room. Scott and I went out and did a little damage to say the least on some nice fish . We only fished a little more than a half day today . Scott has been on a quest for a while to break the 7 lb mark and today he smashed it with his personal best a 9 lb 10 oz beast that was 25 in long and 18 in around. this will be his first bass mount to go with all the other trophies in his home. I am very very happy with him. Scott called his wife and is bring her back on the 30th this month. My kind of client. The other pictures of Cody in the yellow shirt was from Falcon Sat with him and Chance. We had to work but we did get on some Quality late in the day. Falcon is really fishing very well as I have done pretty good when I have had the chance to get on her. As to the number of fish that were caught , I really did not keep count , expecially on Sugar . It was a ton to say the least, but I only want picture, picture and more pictures of my clients with big fish and even a bigger smile or Like Scott with his picture with his personal best LOL. Thanks Chance , Cody , Scott and David for the trips.
Well my internet is still out at my house. I took out Chance and Cody on Falcon today. It was windy and old Falcon was rough. We strugled early but finally figured them out a little. I have some pictures of Codys fish . Chances fish were camera shy. I will update this post when i get my internet fixed. Off to Sugar in the morning for 2 days with Scott.
Well I finally made it back from Sugar Lake. I had 8 straight days on Sugar with 3 different groups. I had Daniel and Tom day one two and three , Dale and Kenny for day 4 ,5, and 6 and Richard and Stephanie for day 7 and 8. The weather was really bad on Sat and Sun for Dale and Kenny, but we caught a fishable day for their third and final day with me Monday. Kenny caught the big fish of the trip a 10 lb 12 oz brute . We all caught a ton of fish and by the pictures we caught a fair mount of big fish. I took a lot more pictures than I wanted to post , but posted enough so that you could see that anytime you go to Sugar You are going to catch some good fish. Sugar came up about 2 feet the last 10 or so days and the fish have moved around a little , but you can still catch them and and big numbers. My worst day on numbers came on a 25 MPH north wind and we still had over 50 fish. Some days out of the 8 My boat was around 100 per day. Being said that Sugar is fishing well I am going to stay down the rest of June and take trips . I have the 14 thru the 26 open now . I was to be gone to Abilene during that time . My wife will not be happy but I am staying here LOL. If you want to go , get in touch with me.
Back from sugar lake . I had Tim and Bryan for a three day trip. Day one and two was a grind as the wind was really stiff both days. Today it was a lot better. We caught a bunch of fish all three days, but today was very special. Our best five fish today was 10 lb 6 oz, 10 lb 3 oz, 9 lb 1 oz , 7 lb 13 oz and 7 lb 9 for an exact 45 lb stringer best five . Did we loose some big fish , that some is an understatement. I do not even want to go there as it became funny getting our ass kicked . We did kick back but I would chalk this day up to the fish won. I was telling Tim that not vary many people in the world has even caught a DD and even less than that have caught one flipping. He is now for sure in the elite group that has ever done that. Tim had the 10 lb 6 oz and I had the 10 lb 3 oz that is not pictured. Bryan had the 7 lb 13 oz for his biggest. I really had a great time with these two and I know that we will be back in the boat again very soon. I am off tomorrow and will be back at Sugar come Wed . I have two back to back three day trips so I will just stay down and fish them both, so I will not be able to post a report until I get back to reload on clients and gas next Tuesday. So I will talk to you in about a week.
Well I had posted in my previous post that I had three days on Falcon starting Sat and then 13 days on Sugar. That changed, I will be headed down to Sugar Sat morning and I will do 16 days on Sugar with this Tuesday my only day off until June 14th. I will be back and forth changing clients , so I will write a fishing report between trips. The fishing has been great on both lakes and I am looking forward to the 16 out of 17 days of fishing. First report will be up Monday eve.
