Great company to hang with since last Wednesday night. All I can say is WOW, what a bass fishery! This was my first time and within the first hour, EA put me on a near 5.5lb bass on a Texas Rigged, Watermelon-Red Gene Larew Hoodaddy, 6.5"...Using AIRFOBS Loomis Extra heavy action rod and Steez reel...I was just spoiled! ;D

Had some "Freight-train" running bass, I broke off or lost in the trees. Landed mostly 2-3lb bass with a occasional bigger fish..Fished sticks in 5-7 feet of water. For the bigger fish, you needed to put the plastics in the middle of the tree and wrench them out, without breaking off! Caught on Zoom Full size brush-hogs in watermelon candy, using a 1/2oz tungsten weight and braid/Fluro line. Those fish fought VERY hard, just to be 3lbs. You would of thought they were on steroids! ;D

Totally enjoyed hanging with the TOZ and ABF guys. Met Jerry with GrandeBass and Skeeter Fowler, one his sponsors, too...

Look forward to going back. Hopefully with get a TOAD!

Just talked to the Robby C. He and Booker T, and Paris ( BTSMBASS ) stayed for one extra day. They got blasted off the water by big storms, but lived to tell.

Race - There really was no race, but we ran 70 + down the lake about 25 yards apart, it was so killer. ( do not recommend doing that ) ;D.

I have a new Fury prop from Paris, and I would have taken em !

Falcon is the best lake I ever fished for the first time, fo sho !

Glad everyone enjoyed the vid. Check it out tomorrow afternoon in the vid section of the site. Youtube is terrible....

Great time for sure hanging with the crew, that was the best part of the trip!

As far as the fishing goes, I think the lake is fishing a lot tougher than normal. It was marginal at best in regards to size but awesome for #s. You could fish the trees and catch 2-3 lbers all day with the occasional 4-5 lber, but man those fish down there fight like no other. I bet 60-70% of the double digit "one that got away" fish stories are actually 3-5 lb fish.

Most of the better fish were caught fishing off shore structure, just wish we had more time to soak a jig in deeper water. It really is hard to sit there all day and fish for one or two bites when you can go tree fishing in 2-6' of water and wack smaller fish that fight like 5-6 lbers all day.

Can't wait to go back when it gets cooler and go toad hunting!

I am so sick after watching that video! :'( After traveling the past couple weeks, having to call that off... then I get a call to do a "cast and blast" in mexico for dove and Amistad for bass- had to call that off as well because we agreed to be at the Academy Grand Opening...
Wow! I can't wait to hear the tales over the next few days- Congrats gentlemen on an awesome adventure! Killer video!
