My response to opening up some dates to guide in November, has been great, as I have already filled 7 spots. I only have 6 more spots open at this time. the 8th thru the 13th are open. I have filled the rest of the month . November is a very special month on Falcon and Sugar as these fish feel the cool off and really get active. Here in Abilene that is for sure going on as I am whacking them pretty good up here. I plan on fishing here next week but the forecast of wind is a little tough so I will just have to see if I can get out in this forecasted 30 MPH wind. Also I still have one spot open on my Peacock Bass trip to Brazil. the trip is Jan 21st thru the 28th and the cost is $4500. We have a great trip booked with a bunch of great guys. So if you are interested please get in touch with me. I will let you know if I get on the water this week. I have a friend that will go with me so I should have some pictures of these fish I am on up here .

IMG_53401 IMG_53421It has been great weather up here in Abilene and I have been on the water three days this week . It has been good as I expected since most all of the lakes up here are full. The water temp on the two lakes I have been too are in the low 70’s and the fish are very active. I caught 27 keepers on Monday , 21 keepers on Wed and 18 keepers Friday. All of the fish are fat and healthy. Friday was a great day as the fish I caught were all over 3 pounds and under 5 pounds.  I still have another week up here so I plan on being back on the water 3 or 4 times this coming week. I want to remind you that I am booking trips on Falcon and Sugar starting Nov 7th. I have booked the 17th thru the 20th already so any date before that is as of now open. This time of year is a great time to come down. I have looked at the Parks and Wildlife stocking on the lakes around the Abilene area and with this water we have these lakes will be off the charts and I am planning on doing some guiding on them as well. They are plenty good to get you string stretched . Let me know if you want to fish some of these great lakes with me. As I said I fished Monday, Wed and Friday and I had these two lake all to myself, it was great.

I caught another pretty day here in Abilene, so I hooked the boat up and went to Coleman Lake. I started out deep on a ledge and caught one pretty nice fish and had a few more bites. It was a little slow offshore so I headed for the shallow water. I started getting bit right away. I was fishing Man it was a blast as I fished in there for about an hour and caught 21 fish. The Abilene area lakes for the most part are full and the fishing is really good form what I hear. The big factor up here is the weather this time of year. Soon as I catch another good weather day I will be back for sure and Sheretta will be with me so I can take a few pictures. I ended up catching about 30 fish yesterday. I still plan on guiding back down on Falcon and Sugar in Nov so get in touch with me and get you dates locked in . It is going to be great.

I am here in Abilene. It has been very windy since I have been back with the exception of one day and I put the boat on the water on one of my favorite lakes , Coleman, I only had about 3 hours to fish and caught 7 for my efforts . Nothing big , but a lot of fun. Speaking of fishing I still have some dates to fill in November. I will be down at Falcon starting November 7th and will fish till the 21st. November is a great month to fish Falcon and Sugar . Get in touch with me and lets go. I also want to let you know that I have had a Peacock Trip spot come open and I need to fill it . Cost is $4500 and the trip is Jan 21st thru the 28th. It is really shapeing up to be a great trip as the water is started down and they are already catching good numbers and some big fish this year.

IMG_1904 IMG_1905 IMG_1906 IMG_1910I am back in Abilene at my second job. I took out Nelson and Jason on Falcon yesterday. It was a little windy most of the day but the wind did die down a little after 1 pm. We had a good day , considering. We played with the shallow fish all morning , and when the wind let up , we went hog hunting and we did find a few. We had two picture fish , but Nelson lost a big one right at the boat. He got all the fun out of her and we all got a great look at her , all we did not get was a weight or a picture , but she , no doubt would have anchored our stringer were well. Man I really had a good 13  day stay back home in Zapata. I did 9 trips and had a very good trip each time out with some great people and little 8 year old Riley. He is really hooked on fishing now, not so much the video games . I am planning on opening up Nov 7th thru the 20th for guiding on Falcon and Sugar. I know from about 44 years on these two lake that it is going to be great. Please get in touch with me and get you spot locked down . Thanks to all for the great trips and fishing this trip. As always I love to be on the water with good people.

I am reposting Tony’s pictures from Monday because I think I left one or two out. Anyway, as you can see we caught some nice fish in three days. the weather was just great and the fishing – catching was off the charts We caught over 100 all three days. The thing was we had non stop action between big bites. I am off today (thur) but will be on Falcon this Friday and Sat.. I really enjoyed all my six clients . Tim and Tony, L.D. and Joe, and Dave and George. Thanks guys for the fun trips.

IMG_1875 IMG_1876 IMG_1877 IMG_1878 IMG_1879 IMG_1880 IMG_1881 IMG_1882 IMG_1883Sorry for the late post. I have been busy and having a blast. I took out Paul,Linsey, and Riley here on Falcon . Riley and Linzy were new to fishing. It did not take them long to learn how to catch fish and 8 year old Riley is just a natural. He caught several fish and once he learned how to cast caught 15 on his own. I had Tim and Tony on Sugar yesterday and we did some whacking on some fish. 121 in the boat and some nice ones . Tony caught the most and the biggest. I am off to Sugar this morning for two day I have a four man group so Carlos will be helping me. I will post when I get back.

I fished Tuesday here on Falcon with David and Joel. We found it a little slower than when I guided two weeks ago. We still caught a good number of fish but had none over 5 pounds to take a picture of . David did however finally get the big ones to bite as they  stayed and fished the spots the next couple of days. He texted me some pictures of some nice fish. Jimbo ad I headed to Sugar lake for Wed and Thurs and Sugar was still Sugar. The lake was up about 5 feet from my last visit , but we found a ton of fish and caught some really big fish as well. We caught about 140 fish in a day and a half and a 9 lb 7 oz was the biggest. We caught a bunch of 4 to 5 pound fish not pictured . It was hot and calm both days just like I want it. I am still going to be here for another week and I do have a day or two open it you want to come. I am booked Sat, Sun , Monday, Tues , Wed, open thur, booked Friday the 14th and sat the 15, so I only have thur the 13 open and sun the  16th open . Come on and get you some of this great fishing.
