We just spent 10 fabulous days on Falcon!
We caught lots of fish with the biggest going 9.30. Not the monsters we had hoped for but we caught a lot of fish.
Before the cold snap we were doing best in Mexico fishing 3 foot of less.
I can't say enough good things about the Falcon Heights Motel!
It's old but VERY clean, super nice people and a cooking area that is awesome! Come in at night and cook steak, chicken, fish or whatever you please and enjoy fellowship with others. It was 1/2 of the trip. Thanks to Carlos, his wife, his mother-in-law and Wedo! His hot sauce is awesome!
Be sure to put in special requests if you want Menudo, beans and rice, etc that are authentic, home cooked.

Carlos is a great host in anything he does.

Awesome that you had a good, safe trip. Hmmm, is the fishing that much better that its worth the risk on the Mexico side? I'm intrigued.

me too .... what "risk" ?

I felt more in danger walking from the Horseshoe Casino to my hotel in Shreveport this past Saturday night than any "risk" I have ever felt fishing the Mexico side of Falcon Lake.

Been fishing Falcon on Mex side for 10 years, maybe crazy but no fear.

Well known fact that certain drug cartels use that lake to transport their goods across the border.
Majority of the people fishing over there never have any issues but there have been several instances that you would not want to happen to you. Be smart about where you fish and keep other boats that are fishing in your sight.

I'm glad you all had a blast. I fished on the 22nd during the late afternoon with falcon guide Jonatan and did really good even with the cold front and light rain. I agree with you, Mexican side is fishing good.

I’m 3 hours from Zapata now. my second trip there.


I’ll be parking In a empty lot in Zapata tonight. After dark most of the traffic is police and border patrol.

Rv life!

The "risk" would be simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time and I have seen suspect activity there before, but I always see law enforcenment as well. So far, I have had zero incidents on the USA side and I have been often. So if the risk is not as bad as I thought on the Mexico side, as you all say and since I am also hearing that it is worth venturing to the Mexico side for fishing...my next question is how much is the Mexico fishing license and where do I get one (w/o going into Mexico) Lol.
