What an absolutely beautiful day on Lake Texoma today. The shallow bite came on single swimbaits and the Deep Water bite is on a-rigs fishing ledges and humps....a-rigs much more consistent bite.. Thank you to Striper Express and Roger Brown for helping me out on this road trip! http://ow.ly/i/Dl3Ti

Fishing on Lake Texoma today was a little on the tough side for us. Fish were hard to find and the ones that we did find were hard to catch! We kept after it hard and kept moving around and picking at them and before you knew it we had a decent cooler full!

Fun time on Lake Texoma today! Beautiful weather, the fishing started out slow but we stuck with it and kept moving around and caught some nice box fish on A-Rigs and our big fish came on single swimbaits in shallow water.

Back on the water after a bit of a break while getting my motor rebuilt. Thank you Honda Marine for standing behind your product! I'm about halfway through the break-in procedure and all is good so far. I did sneak in a few casts.... I am happy happy to be back on the water! http://ow.ly/i/CSEgV http://ow.ly/i/CSEiu http://ow.ly/i/CSEjn

5 years go (Dec 21, 2012), I did something that I can say no one that I know had ever done... I took a perfectly good 20 foot Falcon and cut it in half! I wanted a bigger boat, but nothing that I looked at was gonna do. I did some research and found a few people on the east coast had done some "stretching" of boats. The Falcon is a very simple design structurally, and I thought this is doable. So with a lot of thinking, and wondering, and research, and measuring a thousand times, and calculating volume and weight added and all that stuff, I whacked her in half and started the process. I thought 26 foot would be the perfect length for Texoma, roomy enough for 6 peeps, and long enough to handle the big waves like a dream.
I started by stretching the trailer 6 feet and used it as a jig. I made a mold from luan plywood, formica, and hand carved 6x6 for the hull and deck rollovers. Added new 3 layer 3/4 inch stringers, multiple bulkheads (which Falcon did not use in their boats...it adds torsion strength) . I encased all the under floor foam in plastic so the foam will never get water logged. I pushed the fuel tank up under my seat towards the front boat to offset the 6 peeps behind me (kept the forward console design)....new floor, new awlgrip paint (from Custom Boat Works,,thanks Matt!!) , and boom...new boat.
I added 900 lbs of materials. My calculations showed the boat would float 1.5 inches HIGHER after the stretching and the added weight...and the math did not lie much to my surprise! I upgraded to a 250 hp Honda outboard for the extra boat weight and additional peeps. Been a great boat, no issues structurally. Really amazed considering the beating boats take on Texoma. My motor did have a faulty ECM a few weeks ago which burned up a piston, but they covered it under warranty even though it was 4 years out of warranty...talk about standing behind their products! So the motor is in repair and that's why I'm typing this, and not out on the water...lol!
Here's some pics....I guesstimated 100 hours for the labor, and it took about 200 hours, and $5000.00 in materials. Not too bad to have a one off custom boat!!!
Oh…and NO ONE would go with me on the maiden voyage!!!
