Work took me on a 900 mile round trip of South Texas so we took advantage and fit in a couple days of fishing Falcon. Can you say hot! We fished mornings until about noon and then again in the evenings starting about 5:30 PM.

Water levels still up pretty good from the recent floods so the places we scouted/fished in May were 20+ foot under water. :)

Fished both the Litte and Big Tigres rivers focusing on the outside edge of tree lined points and bluffs. Most caught in 8-10 ft of water on Yammato black/chartreuse 8 inch grubs and my now go to bait for Falcon 8 inch Super Fluke Watermelon Magic. All fished T-rigged. Fishing was slow with no more than 8-10 fish caught in each outing. My buddies caught a few on top water chug bugs and boy that was fun to watch.

I did manage a new personal best of 7lbs 10oz. It was the biggest of the trip with some 3's, 4's and 5's mixed in. I don't think there are any small fish in that lake. : ;D

Here is the 7-10




The rest.

Surface temp was about 85-88.

I sure wanted to jump in a few times. I think it was too hot for the pirates. ;D ;D

We talked to this one fisherman at the camp and he said he went across in Roma the other day. He said all of the Mexican officials (local and federal) were very nice and encouraged him to come back and tell his friends that they had things under control and it was safe to visit. I am not sure about that, but I wish them the best with that mess.

Congrats on the PB David. We decided to pass on Falcon this year cause of all the crap going on there but I glad to see you ain't scared. I have caught a few biggies down there so I hope things settle down, fall can really be great there.
