And I thought that me fishing at Falcon was the definition of “Social Distancing”. Clearly there’s guys smarter than I.

Will advise if/when/as things change..

Beacon is a public launch, their permit gives them control of 12' total on that ramp for their dock... I posted the official letter last year stating this on here.

Um yeah so whats that got to do with my post? 12 feet of it is private.... the rest is core property or whatever the letter I posted said, i dont remember anymore if its core or county or whatever.

Also, I was just reminding people that its a public access ramp, NOBODY needs to pay....

How many covid cases in Zapata county?

I get where they are coming from... easiest way to get community spread is to have a bunch of folks from the populated cities coming to your area. The stay at home order thankfully still let’s us fish, but I don’t think their intent was to still have people driving 4-8 hours to go somewhere, stay a few days, and fish. If you live near Zapata I’m darn sorry your ramp is closed. If you were still planning on traveling there despite the stay home order you are part of the problem that will cause these restrictions to be put in place for a longer period of time.

I know James started this post about the County Ramp, but Falcon State Park was mentioned in this post .

FYI Falcon State Park will temporarily close today Tuesday April 7th at 5pm due to COVID-19

A few years back by some oversight a bass tournament got scheduled for Falcon on Easter weekend !! Well , sat was a non issue with practice, dinner ,etc. It was a trailerable tourn. so we went south to the state park. It opened at 6:00 but we decided to beat the crowd and got there about 5:00 AM------WRONG MOVE-----Cars and boats were lined up all the way back to Falcon Heights and back up towards the highway---- And heard it was always like that on Easter !!! Took an hour or more to get to ramp after we were in line!!!! QUESTION---- With the present situation this country's in ; why would anybody with any sense of safety or common sense for that matter take their family or themselves to Falcon or any other lake for that matter!! They shut it down for good reasons!!!! To protect people from themselves!! HERE'S YOUR SIGN !
