Pig Hunts Bastrop county

Pigs   I have them and they are thick. I feed them in on two different spots  I set you up in brush or blind depending on the wind. Then we whack em  Ill gut skin and quarter your kill . I will not clean big boar hogs as the meat is just nasty. $50 sit fee regardless of kill or not. $100 for first pig and $50 for every pig after the first one.  Tons of fun and damn good eating.

5/26/14 river update

Nice soaking rains are falling as we speak. The river will surely muddy up in the next day or so. Channel cat and yelowcat fishing will be real good. For all you guys that hole fish, most of our big females are in the holes now. I do offer rod and reel trips for channel cat as well as over night yellow cat trips.

Big Fish tourney is next weekend Friday 30 --- June 1  Call me for details

PS  Lake Bastrop is on fire. I am catching real good numbers on light Carolina rigs just outside the grass and on rock out in front of the grass

River in Bastrop is clearing fast. The bite is back on. Rain is forecast for Monday and Tuesday which could possibly muddy the river again. Grass is my main concern. The river will not be navigable within 6 weeks without some substantial rises.

Big Fish tourney is May 30,31, and June 1  Call me for details

Lake Bastrop Report 5/20/14

Black bass on Lake Bastrop are excellent. Surface temp is 76 degrees which is cooler than normal due to the power plant not generating as much. A light Carolina rig with any finesse bait in any shade of green will sack them up. Fish are on the edge of grass and on rock in front of the grass. Not many fish have moved offshore yet. The schoolies will show up, but I really think it will be much later this year than in past years as the water is just not warm enough to drive the shad and fish offshore. Lake Bastrop is a great lake for numbers. I offer full,half, and evening trips. Call,text,email, facebook oir check my website for prices.

Pigs and Axis

If its pigs your after I have them. $100 for first pig and $50 for every pig after the first one.  I have them fed into two different spots. Most of my hunters take them with AR's or AK's , but with a little notice I can set up a bow shot. Its getting hotter and the pigs are moving later and later.

Axis,  I have a herd started on a big ranch in southern Bastrop county. Our doe are dropping first round of babies now. This herd will be ready to hunt by end of this year by bow or rifle. Contact me for pricing

5/17/14 River update

The river in Bastrop has dropped back down to normal flow. It is muddy but clearing fast. Channel cat are good on rod and reel with milk worms fished in moving water with gravel bottoms. The rain we had knocked the water temp down about 10 degrees. It will warm fast with 90 degree temps as far as the weather man can see. Grass remains our biggest problem. It is at the surface and growing fast. Its just a matter of time before the river grasses over and is not navigable. Large rises in the river are the only thing that will help.

2nd annual Big Fish River Tourney May 30- June 1

May 30,31, and June 1 is the second annual Colorado River Big Fish Tourney.  Six Categories

1 Yellow cat
2 Channel cat
3 Black bass
4 Spotted bass
5 River Perch
6 Gasper Goo

You may enter as many or as few categories as you wish  $40.00  per category.  You can start fishing at 5 pm May 30 and this tourney ends June 1 at noon. I will have scales open from 10 to noon on Saturday the 31 st and from 10 to noon on Sunday June 1.  All fish must be caught by hook and line.  No trapping No hand fishing. All TPWD laws and regulations must be followed. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  Kayak teams welcome, but you must stay within sight of your partner.  A team is as few as one person or as many as your boat can legally handle. We will except dead fish. I have been around a while. Don't bring me some 5 day old bloated decaying crap.  You will get disqualified.  The heaviest fish in each category will win all the prize money entered into that category. Boundaries  FM 973 bridge in east Austin to the I 10 bridge in Columbus.  This deal is pretty much on the honor system. We don't like or want cheaters and are pretty damn good at sniffing them out. I don't make anything from running these deals.  I actually loose a little money putting these things on. I just like to see good fish caught on a competitive level, and our river is very under utilized. For questions or paying entries email call text or facebook me.

Upcoming 2014/2015 deer season

For all you bow and rifle hunters, I now have 4 real good tracts to hunt. My hunts are very affordable and my hunters success rates are is as good as it gets.  Yes its mainly a meat hunt but I do have some very good antlers taken every year. My prices have changed a bit. Check my website out for those changes. I also have an axis herd started. First round babies are on the ground. These animals will be available to hunt by bow or rifle by end of this year.Why travel and pay thousands of dollars for a lease,food,fuel,corn, and stands.   I have all you want right here in Bastrop 21 miles from the airport. I have the pigs and have changed pricing on them as well. I just need 3 days notice in order to insure you a good chance of taking at least a pig if not 10.


5/14/14 River update

The river in Bastrop came up about 3.5 ft. as expected. Channel cat fishing was slamming good on the rise. River has been falling all day and will be at low flow by mid day tomorrow. rod and reel catfish will be good for a few days until river clears. You just gotta know where to go and what to look for. My rod and reel trips are cheap $100 a man for 5 hours. My bait My rods if you want them and I clean your fish.

River and Lake update

Currently the river thru Bastrop is slightly stained. Bass fishing remains strong on the river. The spawn is all but done and the river fish are very tight to cover. Texas rigged green plastics and top water baits are best Yellow cat on limb and sack lines remains strong baited with live river perch. Don't waste your time buying perch or getting your perch from a tank. These yellows are usedto the river perch and those perch are used to the water and current and will stay alive longer.

Lake Bastrop   Black bass are very good on Carolina rigged finesse baits. Topwater bite is good as well. The shad are a few weeks away from moving off the grass and staying offshore.  When the shad make their move the bass will be right with them, and the annual awesome schooling activity will begin  on Lake Bastrop.

Any of these three trips are real good and tons of fun. I am good with kids and enjoy working with them. Call email text or facebook me to book a trip

PS   Axis are dropping first round of babies. We should be able to hunt them by end of year

5/8/14 River update

Colorado river in Bastrop is a little stained. The bass are about 80% done with the spawn. Numbers are good for those anglers that have good pitching and flipping skills as most of the fish are tight on cover.  Yellowcat fishing remains strong with good numbers showing up and size.  The grass in the river is exploding. Without good rain to make the river rise, I expect our river to be one big grass mat by mid summer. Hopefully the weather man is right and we get a 3-5 inch gully washer today.
