Is it "cheating" when you catch a DD on Falcon? #12452229

I've only caught two DDs. Both from Falcon. This last one was on 9/28 when the lake began to rise from all the rain. As you may have heard, it is up about 14' in the last week. The following bass was 11.38 pounds, my new personal best. (Caught on 10' PowerWorm, black w/blue flake.) And, you can see where—the usual community hole.

I feel like a "cheater" catching 10+ on Falcon. Of course it's not easy, but I think you have as good a chance to get one there as anywhere else.

No. You still have to earn it. I've spent a total of 14 days on falcon and only have one DD. Honestly have lost count of the 7-9 pounders but were talking DD here. That's an awesome fish btw. How long was it. I caught an 11 down there also that was a 27.75" long. Sure wish she would've had girth to go with length. Yours looks long as well.

Falcon fish are very long. If they had a big gut, they’d weigh 20 pounds. lol

Not cheating at all. It is a numbers gang and the only time I went to Falcon, I caught my 5th biggest fish at 9.17. Longest fish I have caught, but still, not a double digit. Friend and I discussed going back next year sometime, dunno when, but we are looking forward to it. CONGRATS on the new PB. WAY to go. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Its not cheating at all, I'd say its putting yourself in a good position. I have fished Falcon quite a bit since 2009 and I haven't caught a DD. I've had a couple of 9's, several 8's and a bunch of 7's but no 10's. My dad did catch one and had a buddy lose one at the boat. I know someone who has caught probably ten DD's fishing at Falcon over that same time frame. Is he a better fisherman than me, absolutely. But I have spent enough time on the water there to say that it definitely isn't cheating!

Nope not at all. A Legit DD is still a rare animal. I don't care where you catch it.

Congrats by the way!

That may be a SAL in 2-3 months.

Its public water and anyone can fish there with a fishing license and a boat launch fee. Legit DD.

i have been fortunate enough to catch 2, 1 @ falcon and 1 from Lonestar of all places. As far as i can tell, lonestar is not known for kicking out DD fish, but the Lonestar fish wasn't any more or less exciting than the falcon fish. You get a DD in the boat, its a helluva thing, no matter what pond you are fishing.

It counts no matter where you catch it. Is it the photo or does that fish have a brown hint to it. Congrats on the double digit
