I'm gonna take a few days off 2nd week of January
Was thinking about taking my dad down to Falcon, haven't been in several yrs
But I've never been on Ivie and he was thinking we should go there..
It is definitely closer lol
If you had a week to spend where would you go?

Thanks
Clint

I have no idea how Falcon is fishing right now. If you are ok fishing all day for a couple of bites, knowing one of them could be "the one". Then Ivie is a good choice. I love Ivie, but a week of it is hard for me to stay patient.

If you are good with live sonar and enjoy fishing all day staring at a screen, go to Ivie.

If you might do a little graphing and then lots of fishing without FFS, Ivie can be really tough before the weather begins to warm.

If you've never been to Ivie, I'd consider a trip from April - June. Will be a good time for numbers and big fish can be had by just going fishing.

North and Central Texas long range forecast is looking good for the first week of January.
Falcon is 14.7% full

I'd stay closer to home as long as the weather forecast holds.

If it turns to cold/miserable, Ivie will get busy; and I'd head south for nicer weather.

Couple of threads on here about Falcon right now.

I fished Falcon pre-hype and post-Elites. And after reading a couple previous post, it sounds like it would be hard to turn down a trip to Falcon right now!

Depends on the weather. If the wind is blowing out of the north those Mexican bass get severe lock jaw.

Depends on where you live. Falcon is a long drive, and there is the border issue. Full moon in January could be spawning weather. That's a tough question, the food down south is so good. Only fished Ivie back when it was young, but it has good potential if your fishing with FFS and your familiar with the system.

50/50 for me. I'd say 3 days on one, and go from there. Takes me 3 days on a new lake to get warmed up on a solid pattern.
