Man it has been a long time . My last post was when I posted a tribute to Jonnie. I finally got to go to my favorite lake in the world . Sugar Lake. Some of you have spent some great times together at this wonderful place on earth. I had a few days and me and three friends went Thur and Friday. The water temp was lower than I like it so our numbers were down. The good news was when we got a bite It was epic. Crawford caught the big fish of the trip a 11 lb 4 oz and I caught a 10 lb 3 oz and 10 lb 4 oz the first days as it was the warmest day and the water temp finally got into the 60’s late in the day and these big fish responded. Crawford and I both nearly had 40 pound bags with our best five. The second day was a lot colder starting out as it was 40 degrees and water temp at 57. We had to leave early and never seen 60 water temp all day. I did catch a 9 lb 7 oz and Jay and I had two more fish in the 7 or 8 pound class we did not put in the boat . But let me tell you It was well worth the trip. Let me add . I have been going to Sugar since the 1960’s and know it and the surroundings well. It is for sure not for anyone to go, that does not know the ropes. I is better now than it was a year ago as far as safety, but their is sill always some risks involved. So if you want to go Please HIRE A GUIDE that knows the timing and knowledge. There are for sure a couple of qualified people that know. I will continue as of now go to Sugar. But I wat to make it very clear that I AM NOT GUIDING FOR HIRE. I can and will get you hooked up with the right person. I know that there is only two names I would recommend . Call ME . 325 864 8001 or Text Me.

Well this world lost a great man today. I had the pleasure to meet Jonnie thru my wife Sheretta. Jonnie was Sheretta’s Bishop . Jonnie married us back in 2008 . After I meet Jonnie I felt a strong connection to him and started telling him to come down and go fishing with me . Well He finally did in 2010. It was a match meant to be. Jonnie fell in love with bass fishing and fished with me tons of times on Falcon. I posted just a few pictures of the fish he caught . Believe me I have bunches of Jonnie and his big fish pictures. Jonnie is loved by everyone and will be missed dearly . Update. I found some pictures when I fished Bishop Jonnie and Arch Bishop Gregory back in Oct 2012 I just had to post these as this was such a special two days I got to spend in the boat with these two.

I took out Mason and his son Nate this past Sat. on a fishing trip to Hubbard Creek. Mason had won this trip from an auction I had donated to a school here in Abilene. It was a crappie trip , but we caught so many crappie early that we ended up bass fishing for a few hours as well. Mason and Nate were all smiles as we just had a heck of a fun day and caught plenty of both bass and crappie. I sent them home with a bunch of fish to fry and I heard that they have already had a fish fry. I have the other group that won the second trip at the same auction this Thursday. It is a Man and his grandson. I will let you know how we do as well. Thanks Mason for helping the school out by buying this trip.

I’m sitting here fixing to head out fishing with Reid and Tim. So I thought I would post what we did on Hubbard Creek last Sat. I took Reid and Jason out and we just had a blast. Reid’s first fish was his personal best a 5.79 and I had one right after that that went 5.52. We continued to just smash the fish. Reid got his second personal best later in the day that went 5.88. We finished the day about 4 pm with 44 fish. Not a bad day for the first time I had these tow guys in the boat.

It has been a while since my last post. I spent all of March down at Falcon and would have stayed till May but they closed the lake on us. Most of the time while I was down, I ended up doing a complete remodel on the Old Bass Shack , that I used to rent out to my clients. Tim , Crawford and I completely gutted the shack and man did it turn out nice. It is amazing what money can do LOL. That being said I did fish a little . I think I went out 5 days during my 30 day stay. The fishing was up and down, but the last few days I was there as the water warmed up . Tim and I just hammered the fish. I am in Abilene now and have been here at the house for a week. I am going stir crazy as the weather has been to bad to do golf or fish. Wind and Cold. it was 33  here yesterday morning. Today it is 42 . I plan on going back to Falcon after they reopen here and do some more fishing , now that the Bass Shack is redone. Just to let some of you know I plan on doing some limited guide trips here in the Abilene area starting in May . Bass or Crappie. I just hammered the big crappie last year with my pan optics live unit. I have been using that for over a year now and have gotten pretty good at it. Come try it out with me and you will see for yourself how great a tool it its to have on your boat.

I just got back from a trip to Lake Baccarac. We stayed at Los Torreones lodge. Let me tell you this is by far the best lake in the world right now , and that is saying a lot about this lake , because we did not hit the best of conditions. Baccaracc had just caught a bunch of water and some of the lake was muddy. the water temp was also low because of this . 66 tp 71 each day we fished. The Lodge is the best with the best boats and guides and great food and drink. I took Tim, Crawford, Wade, Dillon and Mike. Mike fished with me for two days and Tim fished with me for two also. Wade and Dillon fished together all four days. My best day was the second day as me and Mike caught 73 and had a 40 pound bag. Mike catching the biggest that day a 9.11. Crawford has his biggest day the last day catching a 40 pound bag as well. Wade took all our money with his biggest a 9.60. Bottom line we all caught a hell of a lot of quality fish on this trip. I have another trip slated for May the 5th thru the 10th . I have spots open as of now. Call me at 325 864-8001 ar better than that text me and I will for sure get back to you. Im tired from the travel so I just put up some of the pictures and a few are not on my format so that is why  they sideways.

It has been a while since I have done a trip on Falcon. Tony asked me to help him out with some guys from Cal. I had the pleasure to fish Mark and Harlin  for a few days. We did not have the weather and water temp I would have liked them to have , but we made the best of it and caught some fish . We boated about 30 fish and pictured above were some of our better fish. I really do not think we boated any fish under 3 pounds. We stayed deep all the time for 16 to 26 foot as that is were I have found the better fish for Bass Champs. I am headed to Choke Canyon tomorrow to see shat I can catch there. Falcon for the most part is fishing tough and I do not expect it to get much better until the water temp gets up 68 to 70 is where I think it needs to be for Falcon to get really good. The fish are in really great shape as there is for sure plenty for them to eat. I really enjoyed being on the water with these two. I showed them all of this lake during our time together.

 I have been here on Falcon since the 1st of Jan with the exception of being on Baccarac for a week. Also I had a week off limits for Bass Champs. The weather has really been up and down and has got the fish in the I do not know what to do mood. I have had Tim with me all month and we have been out almost every day that we could. We have managed to at least catch a quality fish every day, but some days it has been a total grind. Bass Champs was held on the on the 18th and as you would expect we had a north wind. The difference then verses now is the water temp was better and the fish were a little more active. Kenneth and I had a good bag of fish that hit the scale at 24.91. All our fish were the same size , just about a 5 pound average. We boated 15 keepers that day and 11 of them were sisters. The pictures above are of a couple of the fish Tim and I caught . I have several more pictures I will put up later but I have not downloaded any more at this time and I am fixing to head to the lake . I will post later . I am going to Baccarac the 12th of Feb and I have one spot open if you want to come . let me know. Text me at 325-864-8001. This is going to be a slug fest on some big fish.

It is all inclusive and even includes your flight . Get in touch with me for all the details and dates available . I am going back the 12th for Feb for some more of the fantastic fun.

Well I have been here in Zapata a week today. Even though I did not get on the water till Tuesday. The weather has been all over the chart with it as low as 44 and the high yesterday 92. The fish have been all over the page as well. Finally yesterday (Sat). I got on a pattern that was getting me a bite on almost every cast. This was due to the fish responding tp the sunny hot day, that they have not seen in a week. Before yesterday it had been a grind , but Tim and I caught a couple of big ones. , and managed 20 to 25 fish per day. Sat I fished by myself , as Tim had to go home. I had to call him and let him know what he missed. I have always said that these Falcon fish like it hot and did they ever respond yesterday. I caught 35 or so fish yesterday and my best five went an easy 34 pounds. Anchored by a 8.11 and a 9.13. These are the only two that I weighted. but I had two more around 6 and a couple more around 5 . the rest were just fun fish in the 2 to 4 pound range. I left them bitting as I had a few crappie in the box for supper . I will be out there again today. The bass pictured , weights are Tim 8.13 Tommy 10.73 , 9.13. The big crappie 2.74 and 2. 31.
