KODAK Digital Still Camera KODAK Digital Still CameraWell we just about have 2014 in the books . I will spend my last day of this year on the water with two of my good friends and fello guides, Jay and Tony. Come tomorrow I will headed to Brazil in search for a few of these creatures. The word form down there is the river is droping and this should make things good. 2014 has been a trying year on Falcon, and as alot of you know I did most of my trips on Sugar lake this year. Even though Falcon is starting to bounce back , Sugar is allready there. Sugar lake at this time is flooded and I stopped my trips a few weeks back, but come Feb I will be guideing back down there again. If you are planning on fishing Sugar Lake with me this spring and summer , now is the time to get it in the books , because I will fill up fast as all my clients from last year are for sure comming back , after the year we had on this special lake. Now I am not pushing Sugar over Falcon, but just saying , I am going to guide mostly on where I think the best lake to catch numbers of quality fish . Unless things change , numbers are great on Falcon , but numbers of quality fish are better on Sugar. I want to take this time to thank everyone that I had the pleasure to be in the boat with this year and hope I have another chance at being in the boat with them again this year. I love my job and it is because of you that I get top do what I love . Thanks again and again for your support. I will be unable to be reached come Jan 1st till the 18th . If you want to come fishing on Falcon or Sugar Jay or Tony can for sure take care of that. I have taken Tony and Jay to Sugar lake and they can even take you to Sugar as well. Jay’s number is 956-754-0626 and Tony’s number is 918-964-0049. Please if you need something give them a call. They are both great guys and for sure will answer and questions you might have and work their tail off for you if you go out with one of them. Happy New Year !!!!!!! See you the 18th.

Today I had Jeremy. This was my first day back on the water after my Christmas break. I looked at the forecast early this morning and it did not look like it was going to be to bad. Well the weather just got worst as the day went along. We had a terrible day just catching small fish everywhere we went . I think I had two big bites and did not land either one of them. The north wind was pretty nasty out there today , but we did manage to stay out and fish it. This was a Christmas gift from his wife and even though we really enjoyed the day . I give him a free one day trip and told him to use it when the weather was nice.

20141220_181854_resizedHere in Abilene spending some great time with my family and friends. Pictured is my daughter Morgan and grandbaby Brielle . We had our big Christmas get together last night and All the Family was there . I am still stuffed with all kinds of good food and goodies. Played golf with the big group at Fairway Oaks yesterday and left there with my tail between my legs. We played from the tips and wow that course is long. It was cold and the greens were like putting on concrete as they were so fast I never could get that speed dialed in. Today I will play Diamondback with my friends and hope to fair a little better today. This course is not as long and the greens are fast but not like yesterday. I plan on returning back to Zapata the 26th as I have a trip on the 27th. I still do not have a trip for the 28th and 29th and sure could use one before I leave on the 31st to Brazil. If you want to give Falcon a try with me , please get in touch with me for the 28th or 29th. Falcon has been good to me the last 3 or 4 times out.

Dec 16 001 Dec 16 002 Dec 16 003 Dec 16 004 Dec 16 005 Dec 16 006Wow did Falcon Save my @ss on this three day trip. I had Gary and Floyd , regular Sugar Lake clients book me for three days on Sugar . Sunday and Monday The weather was great and we just could not catch a fish on Sugar. This lake is catching a massive amount of water and is flowing over the spillway. and it has the whole lake from top to bottom messed up. After the two days and only a handful of fish to show for our hard work, I told them that we could do better on Falcon and lets do the last day there. Well that is what we did and then I pick them up and the North wind is just howling. I ask them if they wanted to go and they were up for it. That was a good move as we just whacked the fish today , boating 48. Now we did not have any big girls , but we caught some nice fish . Floyd was on fire as he boated 23 of them. We did not travel far form the county ramp and from the looks of things we were the only boat on the water. These two guys , just flat out love to fish and have had some great trips with me on Sugar lake , but they worked their butts off and with no complaints and had a great time on the water today. They are already planning another trip in Jan. As for Sugar lake, I will not guide there , till the lake settles down on the water flow . Falcon is a better choice right now as I have really done well on the action and numbers this week. Sugar will be back to its greatness when the water is stable, and I will let you know as soon as she does.

Yea, I get to go to Sugar lake tomorrow. Gary and  Floyd gave me a call and wanted to do a three day trip on Sugar. This will be Gary’s third trip and Floyd’s second. We will have a little wind to deal with tomorrow , but Monday looks great and Tuesday a little cooler but ok. I will post on how it goes come Tuesday eve. I still have Wed the 17th and Thurs the 18th open if anyone wants to go fishing. Falcon is spitting out good numbers of fish and the weather looks ok. Wed I had a trip on Falcon and we boated 37 and Sat I went out by myself and boated about 40. I will be off for Christmas from the 19th until the 27th . I have only the 28th open to fish. As I guide the 27, 29 and 30th before I leave on my Peacock trip to Brazil . I want to bring up my Christmas Special gift certificates for the last time before they end Christmas day. This is a once a year deal and whether you want to get one for a gift or just get one for later use, to save a bunch of money. If you are planning to fish with me on Falcon or Sugar this coming year , jump on this deal and save some money. The certificates are good for one year from date of purchase and you can book at anytime. You can also buy multiple days and split them up over different months . All the details are posted on an earlier fishing report , just scroll down and find it. I will be out of touch other than text message , but I will be back Tuesday eve. I will let you know how we do on my report then.

I stayed on the north end of the lake , most all day in the Salado. At one time today I got on a hugh school of fish and I got a bite 17 cast in a roll. I did not land but 12 of them, but I did get bit. I caught fish on cranks , both shallow and deep and a ton of fish on the texas rig and I flipped some nice fish as well. I am off tomorrow , but I picked up a three day trip to Sugar Lake starting Sunday. I only have two days left before I leave for Christmas the 17th and `18th that I can fish .
