Took out Brian and Kurt today. Man what a pretty day. We started off with a bang and it slowed down a little mid morning but I got the fish dialed in and w just really whacked on some today. All the fish came on the Jig or soft plastic today. We did not catch any really big fish today but we tore the hell out of the 5 to 7 pounders. We did however get our lines broke five times today. If you are wanting to come down and fish and you have looked at my schedule you can see that I am really full. I have a few days open ,but very few. Please still call me and let me get you with Tim or Gary, both are great guides and also fun to fish with. You that know me know that I would not use them if they were not good. Tim just got his new boat a 2012 Triton 21X Elite with a 250 SHO on it. You if you book with me or Tim we fish nout of the same rigs. I am also going to put The RPM rods back up for 30% off for a few week so now is the time to own the best rod for Falcon for the money. If you want some go to the RPM link at the bottom of my home page and go to the rod section and when you go to check out type TLTX in the coupon box and it will take 30% off You can not beat this deal. I use the 7′ 9 ” and 7′ 11 ” Okeechobee Fliping Pitching Special for tex rig or jig. I use the Mag cranking 7′ 11″ MH for crank baits. The deal is that RPM has anything any length you want and they are the best you will ever own.

Took out Brett and Rick today . Brett and Rick are two of my good freinds from my hometown of Abilene. They brought Tim my other guides new boat down for him. I took them out for Tim as he is in the TexasbPro Am tournament here this weekend on Falcon. Tim is leading after day one with three a little over 24 pounds. We had a great day as well catching a ton of fish at least 40 and a good five fish stringer of nearly 36 pounds. Brett had a good day with his best five about 35 pounds. He caught a 8 lb and three seven pounders and a six pounder for his best five. If we had been in the tournament we would be sitting in second place with three at 23 lb 11 oz.

Out again today after a much needed day off. I took out Robert and Paula today. We stayed protected as the wind was a little brisk today. Finally later in the day the wind layed and we were able to whack on some fish. Paula really did well today as she had not fish for bass before. She ended up with three fish in the 5 to 6 pound range and several other smaller ones. We did not get any monsters today but we caught anough quality fish to keep it interesting. I did break a big fish off at the boat today but this fish hit close and I really never had a chance.

Took out Chuck and John again today. I am going to let Tim take them out for me tomorrow. We despite the wind went mid lake today. The wind was up but I managed and they did a great job putting some big fish in the boat. We had two over 8 pounds today and two over seven and several more 6 pounders . Our best five was about 36 pounds again today. Not great but fair. We boated around 40 fish as well. We had a great picture of back to back fish and It should have been three because I lost the biggest on right at the boat after she jumped twice and threw the crank bait. Just a side note . We sit at 15 fish at 101.15 with one more five fish stringer to go. I had them in March and we ended up with 20 fish for 159 lb 12 oz. I had Tim take them out for me the last day then as well. We are not going to get close to last March but we still did ok. I will have the final total tommorow.

Took out Chuck and John again today. We drove and put in at the state park and fish down there most all day. The wind laid after lunch and we started hitting alot more water. It paid of because we caught some good fish after lunch on the main lake. We had to use everything in the tackle box to get a good stringer today but we did . We had two over 8 pounds with a 8 lb 10 oz the largest. We also had a light seven and two heavy 6 pounders to go with or best five. We boated about 40 fish today and Chuck broke another rod on a big fish today. He broke one yesterday as well . I have them again tomorrow.

Took out Chuck and John today, first of four they are going to fish. I hope we got the tough day behind us. We caught a few good fish and Chuck and John had a chance a a few more , but the fish just one the battle. All in all It was a really slow day. We only boated about 20 fish today and our biggest was a 7 lb 4 oz followed by two six pounders and a couple of five pounders for a bag just under 30 pounds. I can not even remember when I have come in less than 30 pounds. Oh well I plan on kicking ass tommorow.

Out with Justin and Randel again today. We caught a bunch of good fish today and our stringer was about the same as yesterday about 34 pounds. We Fished north of the county ramp all day as the wind got up pretty strong today. Randle had a couple of really big fish on today one we saw and one we did not . either fish would have boosted our tringer by several pounds as our fifth fish was a 6 lb 4 oz . Also pictured is one of my jigs I am making, and they are really catching the fish . the main thing is that Trokar hook is by far the best when you stick one you get her in the boat. I have some orders to fill so you better get in line as I will only have time to do a few for a few people Min order is 10 and they are $5.00 a peice.

Took out Will and Craig today. The wind was still out of the north but not as hard as yesterday. I still stayed close as I have them tommorow so with beter wind direction we will go south tomorrow. We had a good day. It could have been great but man we lost a couple of really big fish today. I had one that was just a giant come loose at the boat today. The only thing is that I at least got a good look at her, She was big. Will conected on a fish a min. later and we weighted her and she was 9 lb 1 oz and we all agreed she was not even close to the one I had on just a min before. I know where she lives and she will be there when I get back. I am in production on my jigs and have really done well on them with the fish. I do not know yet how that I am going to market them , even if I will, but for now I will custom do a few for clients. Min 10 and with Trokar hooks $5.00 each.
