Default The Buzzz-Falcon Lake Day 8 and 9

Yesterday, day 8, was a mediocre day as far as big bass. We caught a total of 30 bass, but only a handful over 5 pounds.

Today, on the other hand was another awesome day! Mike and I decided to go back to the honey hole we found 3 days ago to see if the big bass were still home. My first cast produced a 6 pounder. Mike’s second cast produced a 7 pounder and we knew it was on. Since I was out of the Canyon Plastics Fightin’ Craw, and after talking to Jay Pennington, he told me to take his frog and set it up as a Texas Rig with a 3/16 bullet head and swim it through the treetops. I did just that and what a slugfest I had! I caught 4 fish between 6 and 8 pounds with the biggest one being 8.22 pounds. The frog swam through the trees effortlessly and apparently it was too tempting to the overgrown bucket mouths. Mike ended up landing 7 bass between 5 and 8 pounds. The technique we used most of this week was Texas Rig with as light a sinker as the wind would allow - which was between 3/16 and 5/16. The majority of the time we threw the 3/16 Texas Rig Fightin’ Craw 8” hand poured Maverick worm and today the Canyon Plastics frog.
Tami joined us for the evening fish where she tied on a 1/2 ounce Open Water jig and managed to land 5.5 pound large mouth.
Tomorrow is our last day and I must say it has been a fishing trip to remember.

Fish on!
