Book a Falcon Bass Fishing Trip Today! (956) 754-0626

May 2016 started in Vegas and ended with the Great Lord Byrom with a whole lot fun in the middle

May 2016 was an incredible month. The fishing on Sugar Lake is not describable. I personally didn’t think I would ever fish a lake anywhere in the world that is fishing as good as Sugar is right now. I know, I know……I’ve been saying that for months. If you are reading these words and are a bass fishing enthusiast you owe it to yourself to book a Sugar Lake trip experience. You say, “what about Falcon?” Falcon Lake is fishing pretty well too for most. You can easily have an awesome trip, but you can still just as easily go out and catch 20 fish that don’t weigh 10 lbs combined as well. My parents were here for about a week and a half. Dad and I split our time between Falcon and Sugar. Dad did catch a 10.06 at Sugar Lake that anchored a 46.96 lb stringer, but had an easy 11 plus pounder throw his jig INCHES from the net here on Falcon. So DD magic can still strike here on Falcon for sure and yes Dad is counting that fish on his DD resume. He turned 68 years young this trip so if he wants to count it he can count it and I’ll notarize it……lol. Here is a look at the May that was……




A Vegas trip with my Sister, Mother, and Brother from another mother is a hell of a start for any month. Here are some great pics from both Falcon and Sugar Lake. Great times with great clients and family.

Yes folks…..that right there is a new Aggie Class ring and a new clicker record both of which owned by Lambo and his Dad David. Epic day of some serious fish whacking and a record that may stand for years to come.



Here are some more pics from a great month of May.

The highlights of my year are when I get to spend time with my folks. Whether it be sitting beside my mom on a slot machine or standing with my Dad on a bass boat or eating a pizza at Patty’s Pizza in Erie, PA or sitting at a ballgame with them both. My parents are champions at life…..not bragging, just stating facts. Are they perfect? Nah….have they been perfect for me? You bet. They gave me a hell of templet to live up to in regards to being a parent and now later in life my best friends. God willing, I hope 30 years from now Madison and Sierra will say the same about my wife and I. Here are some pics from my parents trip.


Was the 4th fish that day that we swore up and down would be 10. The other three just missed hitting 10 and this one just got over the mark hence the fist pump from Pops.

Here is an action photo of Dad fighting a Sugar Lake Walrus…..giggling the whole time.



May went out with a bang for sure…..


The Great Lord Byrom made damn sure of that.


These guys came down the middle of April and went buck wild crazy. This time they came down with 2 more friends and all 6 of em had a great time. Appreciate Carlos and Jim Edwards helping me out with this trip and showing all of these guys a grade A Sugar Lake experience. Sure, Lord Byrom stole the show with his 10.58, but don’t feel sorry for Tim. Good grief did he put a smack down on some Sugar Lake Walruses of his own.

Ya see? I told you don’t feel sorry for Tim… Good grief he hammered em. He is very skilled with a crankbait and is as deadly as they come tickling it through the timber and bushes. Here are a few more from Big Fish Byrom.

To top off my month of May? I got a phone call from John at Dean’s Marine and he gave me the word that Yamaha was going to take care of me. New power head and the works totally covered. He also called Ranger on my behalf and got them to warranty my lids/latches as well as the carpeting. Remember when I wrote and talked about knowing the boat was in good hands? I was/am speechless. John really went to bat for me and he didn’t have to. He knew I was between a rock and hard place…..there is no way I can thank John and Dean’s Marine enough. That was game changing news. I have two shops that I highly recommend now. Dean’s Marine in Odessa, TX and South Texas Marine in Alice TX. Both of those shops are A++++ and if you live within 5 hours of either you are truly blessed and in good hands.


The last pic I am going to show you is my favorite pic of 2016 and no it doesn’t have a walrus in it. It’s the family and with out everyone in this pic there is no High Stakes Bassin. God knows how much I love everyone in this pic. I want to thank all of you reading this a million times over for supporting High Stakes Bassin.
