Well Got up this morning ready to go do a lil walrus hunting. I checked my phone and noticed a message from my client. He had been driving all night and got to Laredo and his trailer barrings went out on em. I feel terrible for him and he is still in Laredo I believe trying to get his trailer fixed. I can tell you it ain’t going to be easy on a Friday with short notice around here. The wind looked menacing again today, so maybe he didnt miss much and hopefully he will be back on the road soon. The wind looks better over the weekend and I might be booked too. (fingers crossed) Steve, my client the last couple of days, decided to stick around. Soooooo we might just have to go give em heck again and catch a few bigguns on the Hudd.
…..30 minutes. Steve and I opted to fish a few hours in the morning and call it a day. The wind was supposed to be rocking and it did not disappoint. We caught around 10 fish with all but one being between 3 and 7 lbs. (I caught a 3 inch fish on a crank…..lol). Problem is we caught most of those fish on the first hole we stopped at. All in all I had a great time with Steve and he is already lining up dates to come back Feb through April. Check out the swimbait he was chunking….remember what I said yesterday? He wanted one big bite. Didn’t happen today.
Total fish: 11
Best five: around 27
Kicker: my 7
Thanks Yogi. Been a while since I had a full day it seems. Luckily today was not a half day. We caught a fish here and a fish there for most of the day with the biggest being a 4 lb’er which I snapped a pic of Steve with that one because the wind was howling and time was running out. Then around noon we finally hit Paydirt. We ran probably 10 holes today and trust me that certainly wasn’t the plan going in. I knew the wind was going to be a factor and it didn’t disappoint. My neck can’t handle too many of these days. Good news is that Steve caught around 20 fish in under three hours and most were between 4-6 lbs with one 7 mixed in. Bad news is…. He had two of the biggest fish I have seen in a month get away from him. He told me he only wanted to target a big bite and that is easier said than done, especially with falcon being boom or bust of late. He didn’t get one big bite though. He got two…… 0-2. Got him again tomorrow and it’s supposed to be reeeeeeally windy. I already told him I can’t beat myself like that two days in a row. We will stay protected and hope for the best.
Total fish: around 30
Best five: 31 and change
Well we put a half day in. I took out Jason’s two kids today. The one had never caught a bass before. He is more into the video game thing and who doesn’t like a lil call of duty? Or madden football? Jason and his uncle ran the follow boat. The fishing was terrible minus the two 7’s that Tyler and josh caught. Heck I didn’t boat a fish. The follow boat did better on numbers than us but we had the 7’s at least 🙂
Looks like I’m booked again tomorrow. Gotta love the power of the web.
Total fish: 3 (4 hrs)
Best 5: we didn’t catch 5…. Lol
Kicker: two 7’s (6-14 and 7-1)
Well, took Steve and Jason on a falcon lake bass guide trip this morning. They fished yesterday and got burnt and I do mean burnt. They were gonna run a follow boat, but Jason’s two kids wanted to take a day off to recover. Soooo we stayed north and banged trees with bills, blades and plastics with mixed results. The biggest fish boated was a 7 that I caught. We certainly had some quality fish on, but just could not finish the deal today. They want to do another half day tomorrow, which is cool because I have it off and I reeeeeaaally want them to boat a few of those big girls. We will have more lines in the water as well. Looks as though the follow boat will be up and running.
Total fish: 13 (4 hours)
Best five: 21lbs
Kicker: my 7
Noooooo pics 🙁
Its been over two months since I stripped and waxed the boat. Been crazy around here. (in a very good way) Soooooo the boat is going to get some major TLC on my day off. Looks as though I have a client from Kistler Rods coming in tomorrow. An unexpected trip, but word traveled fast that I had a few days off. I am certainly not complaining. I will have to make sure my z-bone is on the deck when I pick em up…..lol. I will show some before and after pics of the ole girl later on. Might have to put my 8 year old to work.
10 mph today…..x2. These dang meteorologist have not been helping with my preparation. Goodness that makes for a fun ride back to the county. We stayed a little more dry today though. We went deep today, all day. T-rigs, c/rigs, ball n chains, and deep diving crankbaits. The big girls did not bite, at least for us. We boated a couple 6’s and 5’s, but the rest was in the 1-3 lb category. Still was a fun day. They have 2 more days of fishing left on their own. Gene did catch the longest 6 lb bass I have ever seen. That bass had also just recently been attacked by an alligator gar. Check out the pics!
Total bass: 23
Best 5: about 25 lbs
Kicker: about 6 lbs (Genes two)
Not much to report. I stayed off the water and did some maintenance on the boat, wrote a report for bassboatcentral.com and texasfishingforum.com (will post it tonight) and did some yard work. I am back to work tomorrow. Then it’s 6 days off. If you want a day or two over the next couple of weeks call or email me. There is a good chance I can get you in.
