After a disappointing finish in what could have been a great tournament, I wanted to put the Sabine River behind me and head south to Falcon Lake—the second of two back-to-back Elite Series events.
Located on the Mexican border at the small town of Zapata, Falcon is an absolute big fish factory. The last time BASS held an event there, the Elite anglers shattered the record book. Winner Paul Elias set an all-time, four-day record of 20 bass weighing an astounding 132.5 pounds!
My performance in that event was also strong. The first two days of competition I brought in a 6-pound average, and most of them came on consecutive casts! I couldn’t wait to get there.
