HIGHSTAKESBASSIN.COM 2018 – A Year in Review

2018 is gone and what a freaking year it was here along the border. More specifically? Falcon Lake. As most of you know most of my trips over the last three years have been on Sugar Lake Mexico. 2018 was an entirely different story as Falcon Lake was just too hot to ignore. What a fun year here in Zapata, …

Falcon Lake, Pennsylvania, and one last Vegas trip for 2018

First off……. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! I hope everyone reading this has a happy and safe Holiday Season. Falcon is going out like it came in for 2018. In a word? Simply amazing.

Happy Thanksgiving from Team High Stakes Bassin

I had the opportunity to take out Chris from Arkansas today. He told me that he has read my report and knew the cold front was gonna kill the bite, but he still wanted to go and give em heck.

“What was the one thing you weren’t prepared for when you became a guide?”

I get that question a lot….probably more than any other question next to “Is Falcon safe?” and that answer has never changed….yes as safe as any place on this planet. As far as the question in the title goes?     The answer? Friendships……never in my wildest of wild dreams did I imagine just how many clients I would have, …

Wind wind wind and Bassmaster magazine with a nice High Stakes Bassin plug

The summer of 2018 will be remembered (at least by me) as the windiest period of time that I have seen since becoming a guide nearly 7 years ago. Every single day we are seeing gusts of 20+ and at times 30+. I have been able to launch here on the North end and run the lake just 2 times …

Man I love summer in South Texas.

  To say I have been enjoying my summer would be the understatement of the century. Summer months mean family time and man do I cherish these moments. We had a terrific time at the coast last week and my new favorite restaurant? The Meatball Cafe in South Padre Island……..good grief. What. An. Experience. Deeeeeeeee freaking licious. We also juuuuuust …
