If you have a positive attitude and a love for learning, you may be interested in joining our team.Morrison Healthcare is a leading national food and nutrition services company exclusively dedicated to serving more than 600 hospitals and healthcare systems.I haven’t had time to do weekly updates lately, and no time to follow any trials, but I woke up Saturday morning to discover much to my surprise, that Martin Mac Neill had been found guilty.What I learned in bits and pieces sounded interesting in the sense, that Mac Neill apparently got away with it for quite a while. And we had some great weather and some windy and some hot and then some nice.. But anything with a chartreuse stripe can catch fish. But you might be surprised what I could hit downrange.. Marker three and south on the Texas side is s good place to start. Rattle Traps and square bills are a pretty sure bet on these fish. Survivability this year is going to be lower than usual.. Ramps at both ends are still fine, but if we lose another three feet we will be off the state park ramp.. What should happen here is that survival rates will go from 2-5%, more or less, to.. Once a fish weighs a pound or so, there are only a few things that can cause his death.. We'll see when we open the doors on the stocking trucks provided by PAW to move the fish from the ranch to Zapata. Schwartz is paying for the collection of the fish from the lake at the ranch. A fast boat ride to their new home will shorten the time they spend in small water boxes.. Of course you must have live wells working at peak efficiency to participate in this event!! Anyway we fished the back sides of some wind blown points with a few ledges on the downwind side. But I heard the south end of the lake was a bitch.. (Three fish) And on Saturday, it was taking about a five pound average to be in the top three. Deep cranks are catching the lions share of the better bass, and the Spro Little John DD is a good choice. Alligator Gar are starting to show up as the water warms.. Of course most folks don't have brush piles out, and if you are visiting from out of town you ain't gonna either. But know that there are lot of fish calling the dam, and water within fifty yards of it, home. As volatile as the world is these days, I think we, as a country, need to re-access exactly what all we are involved in.. I don't care if you are trying to get the rest of your family here.. I would instantly retire half of the postal service employees.. Look at the fuel and pollution savings that would bring.. I would terminate payments to mothers of children on a per child basis.. Saturday was a windy SOB, and Sunday was not much better.. We also had a couple of mornings when we whacked the crap out of top water fish.. And while my intentions were to catch a few crappie for a fish fry, it was hard to hold in open water and fish a brush pile with kinda rough water.. And while I had a pile of rods on the deck, only the one with a fluke on it got me bit.. I did not catch but about half of the bites I got, but I did catch a six and a half in the batch.. I talked to several fishermen yesterday evening that did much better than me. This week is the last before the Bass Champs boys roll into town, and they are off limits during the week, next week. I'm in the country illegally, and that makes me a victim.. Water temps have been around seventy, but we have had clouds and cool a few days this week. Bigger fish still seem to be on wood, and flipping the sticks. Some folks have hit it good, and some have struggled a bit. North winds and clouds have not been beneficial to the ongoing spawn. And I expect that we will see another wave of spawners up at the full moon, which happens on the 12th.. We don't have em like a few years back, but we have em.. Of course most threw the Falcon standards of the day. During that same time, there were protest marches against the new president in all the big cities.. Fishing is good for the most part, and as long as it stays warm, and the wind will let you on the water, I believe it is only going to get better. A shakey head with a small offering has been doing good as well.. It is not unusual when we get some folks from other parts of the state down here they fish a lot differently than we do as locals.. If Mother Nature will let us out there to chase em.. The spawn is/was on this last few days, and a lot of shallow fish have been caught. Which leaves the fish vulnerable to the gar, cormorants, fishermen, and netters.. And with the death of the oilfield, The Lake is the only blood that flows through Zapata's economy.. Deep divers and jigs seem to be the ticket, along with the big fluke starting to catch some fish. Shallow rocks are still the number one way to put numbers in the boat. He's not the only one that has been catching some good fish. Although during my short stint at college some girls did refer to me as the clit master.. All of the different sects of Islam can't even get along with each other.. The world has had to give them a beat down every few decades or at least century's.. Time to bounce them bones off the back wall and and drag in your pile of jack.. Seven Eleven is not only the name of a convenience store.. And on Sunday night we had some real thunderstorms that dropped about 1.85 inches of rain here at the shop.. It has been a tough year for lake levels here, and at Amistad.. Fishing has been good and fair depending on who you ask.. We did chunk for bass a bit yesterday on some rocky flats and points.. But we was off to crappieland and we did not try too hard.. All those rocky windblown points can have fish on em.. On the upper end of the lake, a lot of fish have been in the hardwoods along the river channel on the Mexican side. Somewhere around 265.50 things start to get pretty dicey down there.. Seems we can't get a break when it comes to the wind. Up here on the north end it is still windblown points and rocks.. And pitching at whatever wood is still in the water.. Mixing a new bull, or cow in the heard is a good thing.. And we fished a few windblown gravely banks as well.. Anyway, the north wind is never worth a crap here on Falcon, as I may have stated earlier in another post.. The Citrus Shad and the Chartreuse Blue are the best colors it seems.. But it is safe to say that a lot of fish are are setting up offshore. There have been a lot of man hours put in fishing the dam here lately. We have sold a ton of deep divers lately, and if you are looking for a big fish, that is a great place to start. And the locals are taking over the lake for the weekend.. I have been trying to avoid the news channels on TV as of late.. Because frankly, no one really knows what all we are involved in. Get it done in ninety days or wait till the moratorium is over. We'll re-access our progress in a couple of years and see what is happening.. I'd give that same message to Putin and a few others as well.. There is no reason in hell that we need to get mail every day.. Just because you can't keep your legs closed or are too lazy to to prevent pregnancy don't mean that I have to support your spawn for the rest of his life.. I guess that's enough for the first week in office.. You do know that the US Military runs 234 golf courses around the world, don't you?? Maybe next time we'll discuss Senators and Congressmen's terms of employment and compensation, including retirement.. Of course Easter is tomorrow, and I hope you understand the significance of the day. So windy on Sunday that I canceled my planned excursion out on the lake. Maybe a couple other keepers but some small fry mixed in.. So if you want to fish in slightly less crowded conditions, you might come down next week. I am ready for summer and hot water and grouped up fish. I have been watching the political battlefield from a distance, cause I don't want any of this shit splattering to land on me. And blue jeans have been the order of the day for a few.. Lizards and brush hogs are good choices, but any soft plastic can get it done if you get around the fish.. Bass Champs will return for their second event on the 25th, and I expect to see some really good stringers as these post spawn fish should get back to chomping once their sexual antics are completed. I don't advertise too much stuff on my site, but there are a few things that are near and dear to my heart. Square bills, Texas rigged plastics of every description, carolina rigs, and a few drop shots.. And no doubt the best fish came off rocks in fairly shallow water. And now I hear that the DC hookers are organizing a march as well.. The squarebill bite is still strong, and shallow big fish are being caught at a decent rate. And many times they catch fish that we just do not.. We have sold a bunch of crankbaits as well, and every color under the sun. Weigh in today starts at three, and I plan on going down and seeing what gets brought to the scales.. Square bills, spinner baits, Carolina rigs, and flipping baits have been good on the shallow hardwoods. Now it is a bit tough to fish, and my info has really slowed down. Water temps were about 70 degrees before last night.. A squarebill or a spinnerbait can catch a boatload of schoolies, and occasionally a eleven pounder like this one caught by Robert Myers yesterday on a Jo-Baby spinnerbait in two feet of water.. I told you these Falcon fish don't care about the water temps or time of year.. The local guides have had some good luck with the big fish, and a lot of visitors have smacked around the big fish pretty good as well. That's why I am one of the calmest and non excitable guys you will ever meet.. (Damn I'm sorry I wrote that and I apologize..) Another week and another week of drama here on good old planet earth. Not just in the middle east, but that is certainly the biggest of the problems here on earth. Folks, the only way we can cure any of these problems is with respect. I have been arrested a few times in my life, and never once did I disrespect the officers. They have been warring and killing each other for century's.. With today's modern communication platforms, it makes it easy for like minded and usually brainwashed and weak minded individuals to succumb to the idea that terrorism is a good way to to deal with western civilization. The challenge of preventing these attacks is enormous.. It is also an acronym for the middle of summer down here in south Texas. I caught a 8-4 on Sunday morning, mixed in with a dozen or so fish in a few hours.. So I put some Smelly Jelly on em and they liked em better yet.. And I took the idea to another creek and it was the same there.. I was at the dam yesterday morning, and for a Tuesday I would say it was pretty busy.. But if you will remember a few years back when we got to this level, there were lot of fish out in front of Coyote in those hardwoods. Amistad is now 33 feet low, and we are right in that same vicinity. TPWD put the last of our fingerlings in yesterday, with a final load of about 180,000. Last week of course we scattered the fish from La Perla and after talking to all involved I'll have to say that it went about as well as it could. As Colonel Potter would say, "There ain't enough o's in smooth," to describe the way the operation went. Remember the fish kill that occurred in the Veleno last year? The lake is still dropping, though it has slowed a bit.. I'd say that overall it could not have gone too much better.. So you can see that I am a real tournament threat.. Somewhere around 180,000 were spread out this afternoon on the top half of the lake. I would make it very plain to him that his life would be over very shortly after he started any shit.. You do realize that we have 179 bases/posts/stations in Germany.. The river channel is dirty all the way down to marker ten, and funky looking down to marker nine.. Speed is keeping the camp open into June this year if you want to go.. And we came up with a few options that could help out around here.. I am also involved in another project that could improve the fishing at Falcon. So if you are one that likes to fish the dam during high water traffic times, this is one of em.. Probably the longest stretch I have gone without fishing in thirty years.. This year the guide lineup here on Falcon includes Jim Edwards, Jay Grieshaw, John Adami, and James Bendele, aka Yours Truly.. If I was fishing right now I would put my boat in eight to ten feet of water and hit every rock and tree I saw.. Cause I know a whole lot of men who went crazy; lost their minds, fortunes, families, businesses and friends.. I think all men should start taking it immediately.. And that basically attests to what I have been saying. We had to deal with some wind this last weekend, but the wind does not bother the fish. But wind and rocks make for some good times, as long as you can duct tape yourself to your pedestal.. This place is so efficient that it almost runs itself... Between ordering stuff, stocking stuff, and selling stuff, there just ain't enough time to fish. I would like to apologize to the Democrats whose feelings I hurt the other day, when I was on a rant about Hillary and I said that they were dumb asses.. And the blowjob itself ain't what is pissing me off.. We will be holding our Thursday Workin' Mans tourney again this Thursday. Call for more info but know that you have to register here at FLT before you fish.. And our current president seems all the merrier watching the the races and religions more and more divided against one another.. I have not spoken to a lot of folks that fished yesterday, but on Saturday most everybody caught a shit load of fish..
But if you keep your worm wet, you can usually run into a decent fish or two. And then I found another pack that was opened and didn't have all the coffee funk as good as the new ones.. Anyway I caught a couple dozen fish or more in a hour period once I figured em out. I am sure there are some fish in the Coyotes, but I have not check on them lately or heard from anyone that has fished them. So have baby brush hogs and that damn Plum Ol Monster.. Releases from Amistad have slowed substantially, while we are still letting out a bit more than we are getting. All of these boats made three trips at least, and the PAW boat with a big water tank made several trips as well, but did not run near as far as the speedier bass boats.. The catching is good, if you can find a time with bearable winds.. If you are actually working, instead of out protesting something you know nothing about.... The big fish that are being caught are still coming down south.. I had about four keepers out of the batch and maybe a two and a half pounder in the mix.. The boys from TPWD were in town today, delivering the first installment of Florida fingerlings this spring. You do realize that we we have twelve bases in South Korea, don't you.. I really do not think that he is too concerned with his people.. I would get rid of the IRS and go to some sort of consumption tax.. But you need to pull your head out of your ass and find the peace and joy of living daily with the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ.. There is a lot of water passing through the lake right now, and it has the top of the lake looking like mud. I met with PAW and a couple of our county fathers yesterday to discuss options for disposal of said reparations, and whatever we do has to have a direct connection to fishing, or the improvement or enjoyment of same. I expect that to turn around quickly as the sun makes a re-appearance early next week. I ventured out on the water yesterday for the first time in thirty one days. Finding a pile of big fish has not been happening very often.. CAST is a national organization that provides opportunities for children to fish that may never have the opportunity at any other time. You may know Jim Behnken that guided here on Falcon for several years. And thanks to the generosity of several Falcon and Amistad guides, you can buy a guide for a day, and while you are fishing you can help a few kids Catch A Special Thrill. February 25, 2017: Another week of wind and weather.. And off a lot of hardwoods that were in pretty shallow water.. So taking this drug could possibly take you back in time, to where your thought processes were before you got some vagina.. A couple of weeks ago there were all kinds of protests going on at airports across the country.. We just had a bunch of guys come thru the store, and we sold em everything from big flukes, to square bills, to deep divers, to Rage Craws.. You won't find the fish so cooperative anywhere else in Texas.. Cause the fish are biting and you will quickly forget what's bothering you as you whack the crap out of a bunch of em.. And truth be told, Hillary probably had a hand on the back of Monica's head.. Today is supposed to be a day of protests and violence here in the USA. Mixing peoples of extremely different cultures and radically different views on religion and personal freedoms is a recipe for disaster.. And while a little breeze is a must this time of year.. We closed early yesterday, which is our norm on Sunday, and about the time I did I stood there staring at the boat.. I said screw it and went and took a nice early morning nap.. And there was less wind yesterday than there has been all week.. There were a lot of boats out yesterday though, as UCBC, SAPD, and the Laredo bass club were all in town. But the three day weekend did bring out a few more than we have seen as of late. I think that's why God put nipples on the ends of breasts.. Where we caught the majority of our crappie off two deep brush piles.. Anderson Columbia is going to donate materials and labor to build a paved road that will wrap around the giant pavilion that we have at the top of the parking lot. These are first and second generation Sharelunker offspring. Collection of the fish by electro shocking commenced on Thursday evening, and by noon on Friday they had collected 1000 fish ( -) to be moved to Falcon. This report may run counter to what you have been hearing. Sugar is about eleven feet low, and the water color looks great. If you go and do not know the lake well, you need to be careful. But suffice it to say that that there are few things we are working on that you will be glad to hear if it all comes together. I am not so sure that the resurrection of Christ has a lot to do with the partying that goes on.. The shad are still thick on points and gravely banks.. That has the top of the lake dirty, and off color down to marker eight.. And while I should have/could have fished this week, the wind and work and licking my wounds from a solid week of fishing kept me off the water. I know a few good fish were caught last weekend in the tourney on squarebills, in very shallow water. It will be hosted over at Beacon as usual and there will be many more festivities as well.. Hopefully the wind will give us a reprieve soon, and we'll be able to fish without our pockets full of rocks. I got all my rods and reels put back together and respooled and tied on and all I'm waiting on is the flags to not look starched.. April 7, 2017: It's a bit on the cool side down here the last two mornings.. And nothing of any size till the API tournament rolls around sometimes in June.. Not a whole lot of anything else going on around here.. I have been down at Picachos in western Mexico for the last week. Other than a trip or two to Laredo for some yeast and copper line.. And don't be afraid to get between the bark and the sap as I like to say.. Which I have been supporting a lot the last few weeks. This drug is for continuing good brain function as you get along in years.. But I think there is a secret message in the name itself. Fact is that low water conditions down here have allowed us to get to a lot of fish that we could not get to last year. I am always concerned about dropping water levels.. We won't fill up till Amistad does, and currently, both lakes have room for a lot of water. I am gonna post some low water pics from the past in the next week or so.. For the mean time, the fish are going pretty crazy around here. If you follow other forums and social media, I am sure you can see that I am telling you straight.. " And for the most part I could care less if they were.. I heard from several groups that they caught consecutive fish on consecutive casts. Standing timber in eight to ten feet of water was productive for a lot of folks.. It appears that a heavy jig was very good, as the fish seemed to prefer a quick moving bait.. Spinner baits and squarebill's shallow between the stickups.. Hillary will not face any charges for the way she used her e-mail and set up her own unprotected server. The API tournament is coming up weekend after next, that is June 9-10. It is important to note that fishing days of this suaree will be on Friday and Saturday. This tourney raises monies for scholarships for area youth, and it will be a three day party of sorts.. Well that and the ability for women to suckle their young.. Hopefully we will be able to set up the larger tournaments under there, as much improved access and "Drive-Thru" ability for weigh-ins should be made easy. Fishing has been pretty decent this week, and a buddy and I whacked em pretty good on Thursday morning, before we went crappie fishing.. We caught most of our fish on square bills in Sexy Shad pattern.. Best fish was about a four pounder on a spinnerbait.. These fish were transferred to PAW trailers and delivered to the county ramp here in Zapata to be distributed via boats, by PAW personnel and by volunteers who on their own time and dime, came out to help distribute the fish. It certainly runs counter to what I have been hearing.. I have a buddy who is still there and I'll get a report from him when he gets back. There are a few shallow humps that you can run across easily.. But I can assure you that there will be pop-ups, BBQ pits, lawn chairs, fishin' poles, and plenty of beer loaded onto every kind of vehicle imaginable and headed for the lake. And where the food is, the fish won't be too far away.. While we have dropped a few inches and gained a few inches the last two weeks. Which makes no sense, but Falcon fish do like shallow water.. And it was good to get away and not have to do anything.. Fact is that you can catch em on anything you want to throw. It has been a little spotty with the fronts, but I am declaring winter officially over in Zapata.. Here lately I have been pre-occupied with with this ailment I am dealing with. I was eating Advil Liqui-gels like chicklets a week or so ago.. Hopefully this stuff the doctor put me on will cure the problem.. But I have been watching this one commercial with particular interest.. It is made from some element originally found in Jellyfish.. So it takes your brain back to when you thought rationally.. Lower water levels have put in play some of the humps and deeper rock piles that the fish just were not on a year ago. But don't be dragging your sorry ass up to the hospital lookin for free care when your dumb ass OD's.. And personal liberty to run about and do as you wish, without harming other people, is the basis of Libertarianism.. I really signed on to tell you that it was cool and cloudy and a light breeze was blowing today, and I went to the Salado this morning and caught fish till I was tired of catching fish.. When you go in, stay to the right side of the channel.. But we were hampered by the wind, everywhere we went.. So that one ounce or bigger jig might be a good choice.. I guess by now I am just gonna quit worrying about it. A far cry from where we were just a few months ago.. Those that have manned up and faced the elements are catching fish.. But just let that damn wind stop blowing a bit and I am gonna get out there and... The focus has shifted away from the killer and her family to the attorneys and the officials that dropped the ball or worse. She thought about killing Travis Alexander for a long time before she actually did it.She connived, lied and planned his killing, down to every detail.
