Well I have been here in Zapata a week today. Even though I did not get on the water till Tuesday. The weather has been all over the chart with it as low as 44 and the high yesterday 92. The fish have been all over the page as well. Finally yesterday (Sat). I got on a pattern that was getting me a bite on almost every cast. This was due to the fish responding tp the sunny hot day, that they have not seen in a week. Before yesterday it had been a grind , but Tim and I caught a couple of big ones. , and managed 20 to 25 fish per day. Sat I fished by myself , as Tim had to go home. I had to call him and let him know what he missed. I have always said that these Falcon fish like it hot and did they ever respond yesterday. I caught 35 or so fish yesterday and my best five went an easy 34 pounds. Anchored by a 8.11 and a 9.13. These are the only two that I weighted. but I had two more around 6 and a couple more around 5 . the rest were just fun fish in the 2 to 4 pound range. I left them bitting as I had a few crappie in the box for supper . I will be out there again today. The bass pictured , weights are Tim 8.13 Tommy 10.73 , 9.13. The big crappie 2.74 and 2. 31.
