I live 2 hours from Amistad and 3 hours from Falcon, should I go back to Amistad and fish from my 21' boat or fish the bank at Falcon. I would like to see what the pros bring in to the weigh in but what are my chances of getting on some bass from the bank? My Ranger is stored at Amistad, I was there on Monday and had a good time, the majority of sals should be close to the shallows...bucks in every cove and main lake flats...need some advise!!!I'm only going for the day.

You can catch them wade fishing pretty well in government cove. Wade out in that 2-4 water and flip the trees. If I were to go wade fishing at Falcon, that is the only place I would go. I'd bet you can have a 5 fish limit for 20 pounds wade fishing.

If you truly mean to stay on the bank, it is not going to happen at Falcon. There are not many steep banks you can get to from dry land.

Be careful with water snakes, water mocs, and rattlesnakes. All are abundant in the shallow water.

Can't get it now, but there was a video a couple of weeks ago on ESPN Online of Alton Jones and his Dad fishing Falcon. They had video of a large rattler trying to get in their boat. Great video, think Alton may have been a little apprehensive about his dad messing with the rattler.

Just imagine a 4-5' rattler trying to get in your boat, they will try if tired. Then just imagine a rattler trying to crawl in your waders/pants! Hope you aren't a line watcher, there are other things to keep an eye on at Falcon.
