Just back from Sugar lake . I had Luis and Luis today, yes both were the same name. Man it is hard to explain how Sugar Lake was the last two day. We smoked the fish both days , but today was just a very special day. I figure something out late yesterday on a bigger bite and we put the hammer on the quality fish today . They boated 134 fish today give or take 10. I lost count after we hit 100 and we caught a lot more after that, I got busy with net and camera. You got to know I caught some big ones as well but no time for my picture. We had so many doubles and triples I will not guess to the number. I was to be back down there tomorrow , but due to the weather I canceled and am headed to Abilene tomorrow. I will be back on the water at Sugar Dec 8 and 9th weather permitting and I have the 12 , 13 ,14 ,and 15th booked as well so that means I have the 10th 11th and 16th and 17th open if you want to come. I am off to Brazil in Jan so I will not have any days until Feb. to book. If you want a fishing trip that is great you need to come.
I had two of my special clients on Sugar lake today. Jimmy has been fishing with me for several years and now had made four trips to Sugar with me . What was special today this is the first time he brought Kathy. I had the pleasure of introducing Kathy to Bass fishing several years ago, and to see how much see loves it and has improved from the first day for her to fish. The weather did not let us go yesterday so we just had today to go as I am booked with Luis tomorrow and Friday. Well today the weather was great and calm. It was a little cold early , but we were shucking cloths pretty fast. the fish just went on a rampage after lunch. We caught 50 fish the first 6 hours and 57 fish the last three for a total of 107. Kathy is holding a nice fish and we had several that size. most were 2 to 3 pounds today, but really that was the call to order for the trip, to catch a butt load of fish. I never , not one time today fish my big fish patters as numbers is what was ordered and Sugar Lake sure delivered that. Luis and I will fish for the big bite Thursday and Friday. Thanks Jimmy and Kathy for a very special fun day.
Back from Sugar Lake . I had Bob and Franco for the past two days . One day one we caught a great weather day and caught a ton of fish 87 to be exact. We did not have but a couple of big fish but we caught several 4 and 5 pounders as well and the rest were mostly mean 2 to 3 pounders. Today started out a little slower than yesterday and the wind just started really blowing hard about 11 or so. We only boated 41 today and had three fish in the six pound range and a couple of 4 and 5 pounders the rest were 3 pounds and under. Them little guys are everywhere in the lake. I was to guide Jimmy and Kathy tomorrow and wed , but due to the upcoming front packing some still north winds we are going to stay at home tomorrow and just go wed . I will finish out the week thur and Friday with Luis. I will have a report wed eve so check back it to see how Jimmy and Kathy do, I had Jimmy’s son and daughter-in-law a few weeks back and they boated 209 fish in two day, so I know that Jimmy and Kathy are looking forward to Sugar lake. Jimmy has been there with me on sugar several times , but this is Kathy’s first time.
Just back from Sugar Lake . I had Bob and Jerry for the past three days and they hit some really rough water . The wind was hard our of the north all three days and it rained on us most of the time. Day two was the worst weather of the three days and we did not make it all day on the water that day we were wet and cold. The first day the wind was brutal and today was ok and we could manage what north wind we did have. Our numbers for the three days was 31 day one 34 day two and 78 day three. Our biggest for the trip was a 10 lb 1 oz and backed that up with a 9 lb 8 oz We also had a couple of 8 pounders and a few 6 and 7 pounders as well. All in All it was a good trip considering the weather we had to deal with. I had one bait that saved our trip as I tried a little of everything and these fish would not eat nothing else. I going to keep that o myself for a while , once I figured that out it was game on.
It sure was good to be on the water again and on Falcon. Luis and I had a short day as he was called into work and we had to get off the water early. Falcon was a little windy today but we braved it from the county ramp south today. We started off a little slow and then we got on something that had some quality on it and did well. Luis had the biggest and the only picture I took but we had another solid 4 to 5 pounder as well. All the rest of our fish were 1 to 3 pounders , but we caught very few that were not at least weighers. I head to Sugar in the morning and am looking forward to seeing what is going on down there. I will be back Sat eve to reload on clients so I will post a full report then.
Well I am back in Zapata. I start back on the water here on Falcon tomorrow and then I am on Sugar for 11 straight days. I sure hope the weather holds out as this will be the key, this time of year. The longer we hold off the cold fronts the better it will be. I will have a full fishing report tomorrow after I get off the water,so check back and see how it goes.
I am still in Abilene. I have been updating my site and I had a few issues with the blog, so I am just blogging a little to what I have been up to. We have got some good rains here in Abilene and my pond at the house has caught some water . I plan to stock it up soon. I built this pound for my dad back in the mid 80’s and at one time you could catch 7 to 8 pounders out of it all the time. He also had a group of big cats that he hand feed every day. With all this water in it I will have it back like it use to be. I have had too much time on my hands this trips so I got the 86 ford all shined up and a new grill put in it. This is my ride while I am in Abilene. Also I have fixed me a indoor golf practice area out of the swimming pool room , as it is cold up here during the winter and I will have something to do. I have trips starting on Falcon come Nov 11th and Sugar starting the 12th thru the 20th I still have the 21st and 22nd to offer is anyone wants to come down. Also I have decided to guide a few days in Dec starting Dec 12th thru the 19th If you want to take a shot at Falcon or Sugar give me a call .
Well I was suppose to be on Sugar lake this morning for a two day trip. We had to postpone the trip due to Patricia coming in on us from Mexico. It is already dumping some good rain on us here in Zapata as I write. This ends my Oct trips , so I will be off to Abilene come tomorrow to do some more work on the estate. I will be back to fishing come Nov the 12th and it will be on Sugar again. I already have the 12th thru the 18th booked so I have the 19 thru the 22nd open . If you want to come fish this incredible lake , give me a call or contact me thru this site. Sugar Lake is really fishing great. I have decided to go ahead and open up some days in Dec , the 12th thru the 20th , so if you want to fish in Dec , book your trip now. Also this year for the first time , I have got a deal on some deer hunts, that a fellow guide friend of mine is offering up. So you can come and fish and hunt in the same trip. I have seen some pictures of the deer from their helicopter survey and they are impressive to say the least. If you want more info give me a shout and I will get you hooked up with the guide that is offering this. My number is 325-430-6045 give me a call or text.
Just back from Sugar lake . I had Don and Gary for two days. They have fished Falcon with me before , but never been to Sugar lake. We did not catch the best weather conditions down there , but we still stroked a bunch of fish. I showed them the deep bite a little on Sugar Lake , but most of the time we stayed in the trees and flipped. We boated around 100 fish for the trip and had a good number of boated big fish and a lot more lost. When you fish the trees and bushes on Sugar you are just going to get your ass handed to you, that is just part of it. I am taking off tomorrow and am booked to be back on Sugar this Sat and Sun but I will just have to see how the weather is going to be , there is a great big hurricane coming up thru Mex and it just depends on what way she goes. Big fish of the trip was a 10 lb 7 oz brute and I caught it .
Just got back from Sugar Lake with Rodger. It was just him and me on this trip. I asked Rodger if he could flip and his answer was I love to flip. I told him that if he wanted quality that is whet we needed to do. Our numbers were down form my last two trips as we only boated 49 fish the first day and 43 fish today, but the quality was way up per fish count. We really got our butts handed to us on some really big fish, because was flipping with 20 pound floro , and well it did not hold some of the fish we had on. We lost more fish that we liked and so I switched to 80 lb braid today and the fish just would not touch it. Rodger was catching some and breaking some off and I was not getting a bite, so I switched back to floro and the bites started happing. We flipped all day both days and I did not fish any of my offshore structure at all on this trip. We burned thru all the lizzards I had in the boat and I had a bunch of them . I will be back at Sugar in the morning for another 2 day trip so I will report how it goes come Thurs eve. I hope they want to flip LOL.
