20150821_120545_resizedI am still stuck here in Abilene. Work is going slow as I have not found me a good helper as of yet. Pictured is my new ride. I was not thinking about a new truck as my 2012 250 was just fine. But I had a chance to sell it for a good price , and so there you go , I ended up with a 2015 250 . This trip up here to Abilene is an extended one as I have three more homes to remodel . After this trip I will be freed up to do more guiding. I will be here in Abilene until the 14th of Sept . The fishing has really picked up on Falcon as I have had a few friends down there , and they did very well. Sugar lake is also really good on the bigger bite once you figure out where you can offer your bait without a 2 pounder jumping on it. I just wish there was some kind of limit control on Sugar. James emailed me a picture of some locals on sugar lake and they had about 100, 2 to 5 pounders on a stringer dead in the bottom of their boat. To make things worse , there are three or four of these local fisherman that are on the lake every day doing this over and over and over again. They have no since as to conserve this great fishery for the future. It is against Mex law to harvest and sell bass in Mex , but they have no one to keep them from doing that. I have seen these boats every day on the water and have watched them string up every fish they catch. I just wish there was something we could do. With both Falcon and Sugar this year with very good water levels and a great amount of small fish in them , our future is looking great for years to come.

I had Jimmy and Gary for a great two day trip on Sugar lake. We caught so many fish in two days that I lost count. I am getting a few things figured out on Sugar , so that we can get a bigger bite , and I just think the big girls were eating better these two days as well. Sugar is still flowing over the spillway , but she is dropping a little and that will help the fish settle in. We caught all our fish on the Tex rig and big plastics. We had a bunch more fish this time in the 4 to 5 pound range that are not pictured and of course we caught a butt load of little guys as well. I had to cancel my four trips the rest of this week as I have had a thief get into my belongings back in Abilene , so I have to go take care of that. Let me tell you , you can not trust anyone anymore. Let’s just say that I have to find a new helper as well. I will be back shortly and all my trips coming up except a few are on Sugar and I can not wait.

Just got back from a three day trip on Sugar . I had Tim and Jay came down in his boat as well to do a little scouting. Tim and I caught a ton of fish, but most of them were in the 1 to 3 pound range. Tim lost a monster at the boat the first day . The second day he catches a 8 lb 12 oz on our last stop of the day. I do have some good pictures , but I have a new computer and my camera card will not fit in it so I cant download them. My last post were taken with my phone so there was not a problem . I will get the problem fixed when I get back from Sugar as I head down again tomorrow for a two day trip. Jay fished with Tim and I and shot some pictures and video so check his site out and at least you will see a few that we caught today.

I had Mark and Bob for two days on Sugar and both the weather and the fishing was hot. We did not get a DD but we caught some damn nice fish. The numbers are just crazy over there as we boated 183 fish in two days and today was a short day. the majority are just 1 to 3 pounders , but we would stick a good one every once and a while. Yesterday Bob caught a 8 lb 7 oz on his second cast on Sugar. Today I was a little more dialed in on a bigger bite and we caught several more 4 and 5 pounders not pictured. The air temp was 106 yesterday and 107 today and the water temp was 86 to 91 . I am off tomorrow and will be back over to Sugar Friday for a three day trip. We caught fish on Cranks and Texas Rig big plastics.

If you have a weak stomach or bugs make your skin crawl , DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO. I have seen a lot of nasty, but this makes the top of the list. This guy lived in this house 15 months and according to my brother , that was taking care of the estate then said this house was in great shape. As a lot of you know I took this estate over and started working on it I’m May. Since May Joe and I have remodeled 8 houses and they all have good renters in them now. I started to this guy about paying his rent in Jan and he never came through with the promise to pay. It took me a while , but I finally got him evicted and out of the house this Tuesday. He lived in this house with a wife and two small children and three dogs. Joe and I entered this house on Thursday and , well we did not stay in it long LOL. I called a bug man and he came out and entered the house and came bake out running and kicking his feet and said he did not want any part of it. He said that he had not seen any thing close to as bad as this one in his 25 years of treating houses. I call the city and asked them if I could get a burn permit and they would not give me one. So Joe and I started a treatment on it , that would kill out the demons . I talked to the city and told me he did not have water and electric for the last two weeks . He was turned in to Child Care Service and they did not a thing about this. Folks this is child abuse and this guy out to be strung up living like this. I am still in aw about this one and in fact I really do not know what to do about it. I am not going to talk about some of the other stuff we found , but take my word for it you do not want to know. But I will say he did not take all his dogs with him and they did not survive . I really think this guy should be put in jail. I return to Falcon Sunday and guide all next week on Sugar and I need a break form this . From the chemicals Joe and I put in this house I think it needs a week or two or it would kill us if we went in it any sooner LOL.
