Numbers are waaaaay up and a new whip

Falcon is spitting out some serious numbers of fish right now. Problem is the quality has taken a nose dive……at least in my boat. We caught 71 the other day without a single fish over 3 lbs.

8 years in the making and Falcon showing signs of life.

8 years ago Laura (at the time was Danny’s girlfriend) bought him a guided trip here on Falcon Lake with me. The three of us had a terrific time.

Seeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllloooooooow start to 2020 and the first Basschamps prediction of 2020.

Slow? Yeah you bet… more ways than one. As of this writing I have had 0…..nada….no jobs. Much of that is my fault to a degree. When folks call me and the first words out of their mouth is…”Hows the fishing Jay?” I will always shoot my clients as straight as possible. Good, Bad, or UGLY…..and right now Falcon is …

HIGHSTAKESBASSIN.COM 2019 – A Year and Decade in Review

8 years……8 freaking years. I have spent the last several hours going all the way back to my blog days, pre- High Stakes Bassin, reminiscing. I won’t lie….a few tears were shed and a lot of laughs too. Zapata, TX has blessed my family with sooooooo much. I wish I had pictures of everyone in this town that I see …
