I am leaving in a couple of hours for 6 days of fishing on, what some believe to be, the best bass lake in the country. Hope all youse guys who are freezing your butts off in the middle of the country and on the east coast will be thinking of me. Supposed to be 83 in Del Rio today...YES!!!

I have fished it a number of times over the years. Used to do some ranch work in area and a fair amount of condemnation work for the air base. There are some excellant eating places across the border at Del Rio.

Used to put in up at Rough Canyon on the north end. If you put in at Rough you drive through 20,000 + acres we did in the mid 80's.

Well, I fished Amistad for 6 days and had a good time but the fishing was really tough for some of us. Our first practice day there was a new record high temp...99 degrees. First day of the tournament the temp dropped to a high of 58 with winds 15 ~ 25. At launch time it was only 38 degrees. Second day of the tournament, a little warmer but higher winds 20 ~ 35 with gusts over 40. Last day of the event it warmed up and light winds, I had a limit in the first hour but it was too late for me.

While I really enjoyed the tournament, it is an awfully long way and the gas prices higher it was also pretty expensive.

If you ever have a chance to go back again, don't pass us a night out at Ma Crosby's and a wild game dinner or steak at Lando's. Lando's has secure parking. The food and service is incredible.

Thanks for the info, I would really like to do that some time. I wanted to go over to get a belt made but never got the chance. Getting up at 5am and fishing until 4pm let us pretty tired.
