Mexico side is just like the US side..........with less bass fishermen........and WAY more nets! Everyone says to keep your head on a swivel. Ya, looking out for nets!

I meant Lake Falcon Tackle up above. I'm a very senior citizen and my typing fingers can't keep up with the slowing brain action.

I meant Falcon Lake Tackle up above for the license. I'm a very senior citizen and my typing fingers can't keep up with the slowing brain action. I was down there, Falcon, not Fork, last week and for most it was some tough fishing. Many I talked with were only catching 1 or 2 fish a day. Some none. The area has not had stable weather or temperatures for a while so everything is a bit in a jumble. 13# and few oz. won a one day tournament or was leading a 2 day tournament, don't remember which. 9# was the biggest I heard of being caught and was the only fish for this 1 guy in a tournament. Not fishing any tournaments 3 of us lucked out on Mon. w/ 15 w/ a 6#+ as large fish for the day, Tues. again 3 of us w/ 20 no size, Wed. again w/ 3 of us w/ 50 & of those 40 were from one small point, no size, Thurs. 2 of us had 15 w/ a 7# 7oz. as largest fish of the trip, 2 of us on Fri. w/ 4 fish no size, 2 of us on Sat. had 2 fish no size. Glad we were leaving on Sun what w/ the way the fish catching was dropping off for us. I'd say most all the fish we caught were 6' or shallower and on US side. Lots of tilapia in the shallows. Take your bow fishing gear.

Was on Falcon this past weekend. Fished hard Sunday and it was a GRIND in every sense of the word. Three 14 inch fish all day

....$60 .... DANG
Them Messycins went up again..... ???
I guess they are trying to get some $$$$ to pay for that wall
or maybe to buy more NETS to keep us Americans out of the Mexico waters.
They sneak across and we pay the $$$ to go into Mexico ....... what's up with that ?
Catch a Mexican on the USA side without a Visa and we give them food, money and a City to call their own
Catch an American on the Mexico side of Falcon without a fishing license and they'll take your boat and haul you off to jail.

Just returned from my first trip to Falcon, 2/21-2/26. Weather sucked! Cold front, lots of rain. Fishing was terrible. Caught 3-5 per day 7am- 7pm each day, nothing good, best day was Monday in the rain, caught 9 with a 6lber. So upsetting, was really looking forward to some decent weather and fishing. On a positive note met a couple great guys who live there and learned the lake for my next trip down!

I am headed down there in a week...these terrible reports are surprising. Sounds like Falcon is really off right now, not normal for this great lake.

That's how much James (assuming you got it at FLT) pays Mexico for the licenses, not how much you paid for it. Then he has shipping costs from California and costs associated with a licensing procedure. FLT has to buy them in bulk ahead of time and he claims to make no money on them. I've been going to FLT for the almost 10 years that James and Tom have had the place and have no reason to think that they're being dishonest about it...

I'll let him elaborate (if he sees this post) and not put words in his mouth...

If it makes you feel any better, my bass club out of San Antonio had 12 people out of 21 blank on Sunday.

Saturday was better, but we were also mostly fishing the south end, which has been the better end for several months now. Sunday we weighed in at county ramp, so people were closer to there.

That's what some people don't realize about that lake... some people come on here and ask sh!t like, "is it cheating if you go to Falcon to catch your first DD?" but that lake can kick your @$$ with the best of them...

Wow, I can't believe all these bad reports. I was down there 3 weekends in a row in February and I thought it was fishing pretty well, for me at least.. I mean, I know it's a little off but I wouldn't say it's fishing terrible. I'm going back here in a few weeks.


Are you guys fishing deep? Because I couldn't find any fish deep. The 10 pounder my dad caught was in 4 feet of water.

Also, we did 90% of our fishing on the North end. Everyone is fishing from Tigers down to the South end. The North end hasn't been getting a lot of attention.
