I am back in Abilene after spending two week down south in Zapata. I got to fish Falcon about 7 days including the Bass Champs Tournament on Sat. Kenneth and I were very disappointed . We had put our work in and were on a very good pre spawn pattern . We checked our two prime areas of the lake . Friday we checked our North area and put together a 6 pound average ,so we felt that we had a good chance at a 30 lb bag. Sat we checked our South spots and we had 4 down there that were the same pattern. We hit 3 of the 4 and caught 3 fish in the 8 lb range. so we decided to go south for the tournament. A three hour fog delay and a 80 degree plus day our big fish move on up to where we could not find a big bite. We caught 3 pounders till we got sick of catching them due to we were on so much better. We did get a check for finishing 14th but very disappointing for sure. Falcon form what I saw during my practice is really in great shape and a lot of good fish are going to be caught . We fish Amistad next .

Falcon is alive and doing very well. I have been on the water for 5 days now and have looked at a lot of this great lake. from what I have seen and fished . Falcon is for sure in the upswing of being somewhat as what she is known for. Now do I think she will return to like she was in 2011. I do not think so. I would want it to get full to do that . In my 47 years of fishing Falcon I have seen what has happened after she has been full about 6 times. 1993 and 2011 have been the best I have ever seen it . I still have two more day before off limits and I have been lucky to have great weather to check Falcon out. I sure have brought back some great memories as I have been looking at old files and pictures and reports of the great past years I have enjoyed Falcon. I am going to load up some pictures of old times in the next day or two that you would probably like to see so tune back in and take a look at the past .

Well I am sure glad to be back down on Falcon this week . It has been a while. the weather so far has been nice  in the 70’s for the most part and the forecast looks pretty good for the rest of the week. I will be spending several more days on Falcon and I will head down to Sugar come Monday. I have been looking more than I have been fishing and so far from what I have seen . This lake looks great. I have managed to catch only 19 fish so far , but I really have not tried to pound any spot, as I am getting ready for Bass Champs come Feb 10th. Now when I go down to Sugar I will indeed try to pound them there. I will let you know how it goes in the up coming days.

Well I know it has been a while since I have posted anything. A lot of people have wondered if I have got out of the guide business. Well for the most part as of now I have . I still have all my good contacts and some really good friends still in the business , so if you need someone let me know and I can hook you up with someone good. I am still however still doing my groups for Peacock Bass Trips in the Amazon. I have acquired a great trip slated for Jan 18th thru the 26th in Jan 2019. This trip will be on the Amazon Lord and be on the Rio Negro. I have held the price at $4900.00 per person and that is a great price on a first class trip. As of now I do have some spots to fill and I want to fill them fast , where everyone can book a flight early for a great price. Booking now will make it so much cheaper . Call me and get on the list . My new number is 325-864-8001. Just to let some of you know . I will return and do some more guiding in the future. I will let you know when that time comes. Kenneth and I will be starting our tournament season next month on Amistad and I look forward to that.

It has been to long since I have posted anything. I am still here in Abilene. I did fish in the Bass Champs championship on the Red River. This was a tough tournament to say the least. Out of 233 there were only two limits caught and a two day 10 fish stringer won it with just over 20 pounds. Kenneth and I caught two good weighers   on Sat and none on Sun. The weather was great , there is just not many fish in the river as most everyone found out. Falcon and Sugar got a much needed shot of water and this will male both of these lakes so good for a while. I had sold my boat when I had the chance before they caught this water so for now I am boatless and unable to guide. I do however plan on getting another boat soon and will keep you posted as to when I will start back up. As of now if you want to go fishing I have a couple of good guides that will be happy to take you out and they are very very good on Falcon and Sugar. I have a new phone number as well if you want to take note . 325 864 8001.

Just back from the Amazon. What a great trip. I have some great pictures of this trip and big fish, but I am still having trouble with my new server about loading them up. We are working on the problem and I hope  we can get it figured out. I went out on a different ship this trip and being in August I went to a different river as well . We set out on the Madeira river  and then hit the Canuma river . The boat we were on was The Amazon Load. I have been on other boat and this boat is a big step above the other ones. Everything about this trip from Boat , Staff, Guides and food etc were the best you could have had. We traveled 100’s of miles and fished some great water and caught 1135 Peacocks . The river was still a little to high but our guides worked their tails off. We had several big fish on this trip topping out with Kenny getting his personal best a 18lb I will have pictures later and for those that know Kenny he had his shirt on this time. I have another trip planned the third week in Jan of 2019 and it will be back on the Rio Negro as this is the best area for big fish when the river is right . Jan over the history is one of the best times to fish the Rio Negro because Historically low at this time. I will for sure and do have the Amazon Lord booked and only 18 people can go, so get in touch with me early and get on the books so you can get a cheap flight. My phone number has changed so take note  325-864-8001 . Call me if you have any questions. I will have a full report with pictures as soon as I get this server problem fixed.

I know it has been a while since I have posted anything , but I have taken the summer of this year,to spend time in Abilene to get a lot of unfinished business taken care of. I will be leaving to Brazil this Friday to go Peacock Bass fishing in the Amazon. This year we are going to try a different river , the Madeira . It is known for the shear numbers of quality fish in the 8 to 12 pound range with a big one mixed in. Also Calvin , is planning another trip this Jan back on the Rio Negro . If you are interested please get in touch with me. I have been able with this time off to get most everything done on the estate and most important I have my pond finished and about half full. I have it stacked very well. Falcon and Sugar still remain very low and if we do not get some rain soon and they start irrigation , it will not be good for these two lakes. I am going to wait and see before I book any trips down there this spring. I have some very good lakes here around Abilene and they are full and they are doing very well. I will let you know on that on a later date. I will be posting about my Brazil trip when I get back around the 20th so look for that. I finally have my site working right and should have plenty of pictures. See you then.

I know it has been a while since my last post. I have been making some changes in my site and it got a little screwed up and I am just now able to post. I did not get to post my last couple of days on Falcon with Tate and Melissa and their twin boys . I did take some good pictures of them but I’m am yet to recover them on my computer. Hope I can get them up on this site soon. I hade them for two days and even though it was windy the twins caught a ton of fish 183 to be exact in the two days they fished. 7 lb was the biggest but they had a 27 lb stringer in 5 the second day and that was very good for Falcon at this time and wind. The boys qualified for the youth nationals to be heled this weekend in Tenn. I know they will do good. I will try to recover all the great pictures of them and mom and dad and add them to this report later. I am in Abilene for a while and I have had a trip or two up here and planning to do some more . Other than wind ,wind , wind the fishing has been good. I did get my pond completely finished and have it stocked well with bluegill and crawfish and minnows and it is already about half full. It turned out really good and covers about 4 acers. I have about 30 2 to 3 pound bass in it and some of them have spawned . I should have a great fishing hole for me and all the grandkids very soon.

I have been busy and a lot has happened since my last post. I had my eye surgery and I am so pleased with it. I have 20/20 in my left eye now and I do not have to wear glasses at all. I have been as a lot of you know on a pond project here at my house in Abilene for over a year now. It had three stages and I have began work on the final stage this month. When finished It will be about 4 Ac and average about 14 to 16 feet deep. I have posted some before and after pictures just to let you see the difference . I have three docks completed and the pond will have three water fountains in it as well. These will provide both look and oxygen to the water for the dog days of summer .I have stocked the lower half with crawfish and shiners and have about 30 2 pound Florida Bass . As you can see in the pictures I have added a rock pile for structure and plan on doing a couple more in the near future. Now all I need it to do is rain and give me some water. Now about fishing . I will start my guiding back up the 15th of May. I already have several trips on the books but still have some open days to fill The dates I have open as of now are 15,20,21,22,23,24,28,29,30,31. If you want to come now is the best time of year to fish Falcon and Sugar.
