Falcon Lake, TX bass!! (**PICS**)

Just returned from my first trip to Falcon Lake. The fishing was very slow for us.....I believe mostly due to a combination of us having never been to the lake before and the water being cooled down a lot from the cold front that moved through last week (water temps ranged from 58 to 64).

My buddy and I only caught 16 fish total in 3 days.....however, I was blessed/lucky/fortunate enough to catch TWO double digit fish, both shattering my old personal best (around eight pounds). The largest was 11.15 lbs and the other was 10.20 lbs. I could not be happier with these two giants!! I have been an avid bass fisherman my whole life, and have always hoped to catch a double digit....but I NEVER DREAMED I would catch TWO of them within 48 hours!!

.....and believe it or not, the 11.15 was the very first fish of the trip!!

I felt a little guilty that my friend was not able to get himself a double digit as well....but he did catch more fish than I did, and managed a solid 7 lb. fish.

Here are some photos....I hope you guys enjoy. I will definitely be heading back to Falcon when the water warms up a little. I will also be getting replicas done for both of these if anyone knows a good fish taxidermist in the Houston area, please let me know. (I've never mounted a fish, so I have no idea who around here is good)

The largest bass of my life....11.15 lbs!!

The second largest bass of my life.....10.20 lbs!!

Awesome fish. It's funny how that works sometimes. I took a buddy fishing and his first ever walleye was .5 lbs off the state record and three times as big as any I ever caught. Then one day I got 3 pbs in one day! Keep up the good work!
