Out with Jonnie and John again today for there last day. It was not the best weather today but it was not bad . The wind got up after lunch and we had to deal with that. I had another slow day today. We did catch one really nice fish today and I had to put up the little pig we caught today this fish was as deep as she was long. We only boated about 15 fish again today. Typical Feb. This time of year is so up and down. I am sure with this many boats someone got on them but I talked to a few that are usually on them pretty good and the cold front shut them down for most of us. If you have not been on my product page get on it and look at the spinnerbaits I have added. The are built Falcon tuff 5/8 and 3/4 oz . heavy wire and heavy hook with really stout swivels. They are priced right at about 8 bucks each. To kick them off I am offering just for a day or two if you buy the 4 pack you get them for 6 bucks each or $24 for four. Give them a try.

Back out today with Jonnie and John after we set it out yesterday due to the north wind. We started late today due to the rain early, but once it quit raining it was plenty nice but cool. I do not know how everyone else did but the front knocked the hell out of my bite. We really strugeled today only boated 15 fish and an 8 lb 3 oz was the biggest. I caught two heavy 5 pounder not pictured that helped our stringer be respectable , but the numbers were way down for me. We will be at it again tomorrow as it is their last day. We caught fish on a little or everything today because we thru the box at them.

Took out Johnny and John today. It did not get as warm as the predicted but it still was a very nice day. I started out deep and It payed off . We started with a 9 pounder and an 8 pounder and then it slowed down a little after a few more good fish. We moved up to the next level and started catching some pretty good numbers and some fish in the 4 to 5 pound range on the crank bait. We fished a bit longer today because what is expected in weather tomorrow. We boated about 40 fish today with a 9 pounder being our biggest. We had a pretty good stringer today going about 38 pounds. The Outlaw jig in falcon craw caught the 9 pounder. Just a note I filled all the spots I had come open , thanks to everyone that wanted them, sorry I could not take you all. I am booked 100% until July and I have july about 50% booked. Please still contact me as I have three other guides I can book you with. Just to make sure you know I book them with Gary, Tim, Wally and they are all local guides and I do not get a cut. I do this to keep you in the group sorta speek and to make sure a local guy gets your business as they deserve it because they fish this lake year around and work there ass off for you . All thre guides fish almost every day on this lake guideing or not. That is real important to me because if they did not stay on fish I would not use them.

Well I had the day off due to a cancelation. I did not mind at all as I got alot of thing done that I have been putting off and also had time to build some more Jigs. I have improved the heads and the hook keeper on The Outlaw jig. I now have the new ones ready to ship. Just to let some of you know that might have wanted to fish with me and has looked at my calender you have seen that I am 100% booked until July. and July is getting filled very fast. Well I had the week of 25 th thru 29th open up today and If you want to come in june that is all I have.June of 2011 was my best month as I had a five fish average per trip of 41 lb 9 oz . It is hot but the fish like it and they are stacked and you will not have the crowds like now. I will be out scouting tomorrow as I have the day off as well due to the cancelation. I could have taken the trip but I wanted to just look around and check some differant patterns out . I have been really pleased how my Jig and Rods are doing on my product page and I will be adding a great spinnerbait line to the page shortly. I will have five differant colors in two differant sizes and they are 5/8 and 3/4 and heavy wire made for the tough Falcon fish. The have been tested and proven and now is the time the spinnerbait is going to shine. I will have them up by firsst of next week as they are ready I just have to get my web guy to add them on the page. Thanks for all the Jig orders I have been getting and I have heard some good reports about people catching lots of big fish on them.

Took out Tim and Don today. We finally had a good weather day and I know it was nice yesterday but I did not get out. We put in at the state park today along with 200 other boats. The lake was really crowded today as it has been. We just found an area where ther were not any boats and started whacking the fish. It was not long and than we were joined by several other boats I counted 8 other boats within a couple hunderd yards of us. What was nice everyone was really respectful that I was there first and stayed back off of me until I finished with the spot and than they could have it and they still caught fish behind me as I wanted to go and fish some new water. This is the proper way this is done. We really had a good day on numbers and quality. I took a bunch more pictures of 5 to 7 pounders just did not have room to put them all up. Tim and Don learned to fish a jig today and did very very well with it. If you do not beleive the Trokar hook is the best I stuck a 6 pounder in top of the head today and the hook went thru its scull from the top. We boat about 35 fish today and 30 of them were over 5 pounds.

Took out Bob and Roy today. It was a real messy day rain and fog and cold. We just found a spot where there were not to many boats and went to fishing. We did not just catch a ton of fish today but for the most part when we got bit it was a good fish. I broke off two fish today that seamed to be real heavy , but both times they took it right at the boat and went hard the other way. I caught a five pounder like that right at the boat and when I went to lip her I noticed about five or more big fish with her, I new we were in the right spot. Our biggerst fish was only an 8 lb 2 oz but we had some nice heavy sevens to go with her. Roy had another 8 or 9 pounder he quick released at the boat but that was ok as we got everything out of her except the picture and an accurate weight. Still a bunch of boat on the water even with the bad weather. I am Off finally this weekend and I am going to catch up on making Jigs . We caught all but one of the big fish on the Outlaw Jig again today. There is a reason I make 5 differant colors of Jigs and today we tryed them all and the fish only would eat the Crawfish one today. It was very eveident it was the best color where we were fishing today. If you like a Jig do not get stuck on just one color , experiment to see if the fish will eat another color. I will have plenty to ship out Monday so if you have not put an order in , do it now. If you have not fished a jig with a Trokar hook in it you just need to try it one time and you will be hooked . This Jig in the colors I offer with this hook will put more fish in the boat . I only offer them on my site . If you look at Falcon Lake Tackle fishing report the 13 lb 2 oz was caught on the Outlaw Jig  1 oz football in the Bream color. Tony Coatney was the Guide. Better get you some.

Took out Brian and Cory again today and this was their last day before they head back home to Tenn. We did not get that far from the county ramp today , because it was supose to rain with possible thunder storms today, but that never happened . We caught a bunch of fish today , but really did not dial in the big bite today. We had several quality fish, but all in all It was disapointing to me. I am ready for them regular days of 40 plus pound sacks almost every day . I sure will be glad when this spawn season get over so the fish will be alot more predictable. With the crowds , the weather and the unpredictable fish I think next Jan and Feb I will not offer any guide trips up. I will still do a few for my regulars , but it is just not worth loosing good spots like I did yesterday to some idiots that are going to rape it and cut the heads off of 8 to 10 pounders. I stay busy as I want to be the rest of the year and I only want to guide the people in my boat , not the ones looking and watching ready to move in on your every spot. This shit has gotten way the hell out of line this year. I like to fish and rotate several spots during a day in an area, and that has become impossable to do.

I took out Brian and Cory today and if you were out there, you know it was fog thick. I went to one of my places in the fog and was fishing it and when we could barely start to see I could make out a boat about 150 yards from us. I pulled off as quick as I could and move up to the bank a little just trying not to show these guys anything. Wrong they were on that spot like a duck on a junebug. I kept an eye on them and we were catching the hell out of the 3 to 5 pounders on the bank. I was really just buying time for them to leave and I wanted to be out there about 9 am as that is when I really do good on that spot. We watched them for about 45 min, they had not had a bite and we had caught about 15 so I thought they were about to leave , but one of them hooked up on a big fish and I knew then that the spot was screwed for the day. The dumb ass put the fish in the well and I know no tournament is going on on Wed. They are one of these dumb ass that eat 10 pounders. Well I fish within site of that boat on my spot all day and when I headed in a 3:30 pm they were still sitting on it and I bet they are still there. It looks like they should be paying me for the guide trip. We had a good numbers day catching about 35 or so no big ones heavy 6 pounders

Took out Mike and Pete, this was the last day of four for these guys. Today the weather was predicted to be the best they had had for the past four days and it did not get nice as early as they said. We got off to a late start and we ended up fish a little later as well. I just really sucked today. We never did dial in a very many fish today. Both Pete and Mike caught a nice fish but we only caught 13 fish all day long. I had to check my calender to make sure it was monday. We put in at the state part about 8 am or so and we like to have not had a place to park. I think the whole state of Ok is here right now and they must not have jobs or they are guiding. Well back to the fishing . I really am at a loss as what we were doing wrong today as I tryed everything except real shallow. All in all for the four days we had two great days considering the weather and one ok day and one shitty day. I will take 3 out of 4 this time of year with the cold stuff we just had the last few day. I made the comment that we caught 13 all day well the truth to the matter is they caught 13 today I smelt like skunk.

Took out Mike and Pete today for what was , weather wise a miserable day. The good thing is that the fish were biting and we caught the hell out of them and allmost everyone of them were quality 5 pounders up to 8 pounds. We caught every fish on the Outlaw jig today in the Falcon Craw Color. This jig has really produced well over the last three days. We stayed steady on the Bite until about noon and when it slowed down we headed in to warm up. I have them again for their last day and the weather looks better, Even though we have caught some good fish /they sure hit the weather wrong, but they are from Table Rock Lake so they are used to the cold.
