Updated in OP Bass fishing on Lake Falcon next week



My father and I are fishing with friends next week down there. Any good tips before I head that way besides avoiding getting my head cut off? They caught a ton of fish last year so I'm pretty stoked.

Updated: fished hard from Wednesday afternoon through this morning. Caught one fish. 4.4 lbs. my father caught a 7.5 this same morning. Nothing else the entire time. No one was catching anything that we talked to. Sad. But a bad day fishing....

I'd say this is priority 1.

2: Good Luck. The shows from that lake I've seen have been awesome.

Lake is about 30' low. If you fish the Mexico side you have to have a mexico fishing license.

Hopefully someone in the group has been before and can point you in some general area's.

That was an extremely isolated instance from my understanding of it. Security isn't much of an issue anymore. There are plenty of guys out there that have everything under control. You may have missed the spawn by a few weeks, but there will still be some absolute pigs in there. One day I'll make the trip....one day. Take a bunch of pictures and report back if ya don't mind. I think Flamefighter makes the trip annually and has had nothing but great success. My jealousy can not even be expressed in words. Go get em bub!

Have fun.

My brother goes every year. A 25 lb 5 bass stringer is considered a bad day

My best friend just got back from there last night. They were there three days and caught 0 fish. It didn't help that they were facing an average of 25 mph winds, but they said that hardly anyone was catching anything.

Not saying y'all won't do any good, and this was all of theirs first trip. Hopefully y'all have better luck than they did

I fished it in December. Fish the drains for Pre spawn fish and long rocky points. I'm going to head back there in the next couple weeks.
