Returned safe and sound from our Baccarac trip, first class service as always and awesome bass size more than made up for the slower number of bites than normal. Our group was looking for size and we definitely found it. Our 6 guys in 3 boats totaled 10 fish over 10 lbs and 32 over 8 lbs in 4 days. In my boat, each day we had phenomenal 5 fish limits of 46.5, 44, 42, and 45 lbs. On the last day, Jay and Gary combined for a 5 fish limit of 49.5 lbs with a 10-15, 10-8, 10-4, 10-4, & 7-8. What a day!! 3 anglers came with the sole mission of catching their first 10 lb’er and all accomplished the feat. Chad and Jay each caught two 10s, while Gary caught 4 over ten. Overall the size was awesome, with all but 1 of our anglers catching a bass over 9 lbs. Overall, our biggest bass were 11-5 for me, 11-4 for Chad, and 10-15 for Gary. Numbers of bass remained low, but almost all of the fish being caught are big, with only a few under 4 lbs caught the entire trip and the average size running around 6 or 7 pounds. Just unbelievable average size—if I hadn’t witnessed it myself, I wouldn’t have believed it. . Top baits were chrome Zara Spook or Chug Bug style topwaters and white soft plastic swimbaits like Basstrix style paddle tails or Live Magic Shads. Casting to schooling fish and points with bushes were our best patterns.



Also From Eddie Herr ..Just from a great trip to your Lodge. Great service and the Lodge lay out is prefect. As predicted the numbers of fish caught were low but the size was unreal. In three days my 15 largest fish weighed 141 pounds. Fished mostly with all SEBILE crankbaits "the jerk minnow" ..The best overall trip I have been on in 15 years to Mexico

First of all I want to start by thanking all the staff and guides for working so hard for making this a wonderful trip. The water is just starting to drop, so the numbers should continue to rise. As for our group, it was very tough fishing as we only received 10 to 15 bites per day.
On the other end of this, all of the bites we received were from very big fish. Numbers wise for our group, we had 35 fish over 7 pounds, 25 fish
over 8 pounds, 17 fish over 9 pounds, 8 over 10 pounds, 6 fish over 11 pounds, and 2 fish over 12 pounds. (Awesome trip for big fish) Most of the fish caught were on 4 to 6 inch swimbaits - shad pattern, and 7 inch flukes - solid white or baby bass pattern, and a few topwater fish. Looks like the old guys kicked the young guys butts!! Some of the guys listed had their
personal best fish of a lifetime:

Alek Loukas 12.6
Jerry Andrus 11.14
Judd Hightower 11.4
Rhett Blandford 11.4
Jodi Coker 12.14

Congratulations Jodi for big bass of the trip! 2 ounces more and you would of had a teenager! Great fish anyway. We are already trying to plan a trip
to go back, we would to be there in one month, the fishing should be dynamite.

From David Lundsford The numbers were down compared to past trips but the size of the fish caught was incredible. In four days we caught well over 100 fish that weighed 7lbs or more. The topwater bite was outstanding.I have never experienced big bass exploding on a topwater bait the way they did this trip. I can't say enough about Manuel our guide, the food,the accommodations, the staff and Russ is always helpful and fun to talk to. Can't wait to go back in April. David Lunsford



From the Gil Wright Group fishing the 28th to Nov 2nd ...." THe best and worst of times " some very slow fishing at times but also some very excellent results

Gil's group caught 13 fish over 10 pounds, 36 over 9 pounds,, Great fishing for big fish!!!!!

Sam Wade- Fishing mainly around the inlands and the submerged brush topwater fishing was good with some fish up to 11 pounds. Using 15 year old 9 inch sluggos fishing was excellent. THe bite is very slow but the weightless sluggos produced a fish almost ever 4th or 5th cast. Never have I caught so many fish over 6 pounds at one brush pile. I highly reccommend Alonzo as a guide

From Terry Hollan We still have lots of high water and we need the water level to drop about 5 ft and we need a weather change. The high water conditions are still causing a very slow bite!

Nov 5th results: excellent according to Narlin Salazar ....With chatter baits producing the biggest fish with Morris Shaw catching 13.8 and 10.7 ......all boats landed huge bass but still very little topwater

Nov 6th results: Big fish again and the numbers are getting better. The water is coming down off the brush and the activity has increased. Suspending Rattling Rogue"s produced the best numbers and the biggest fish with 7 fish over 10 pounds caugh. Guide Alonzo was again the best guide on the water

Tommy Baxter report We caught 27 fish from 6.8-10.14. One of the guys we flew with caught a 13.7

All the things y'all have been telling me are more than true. I have been doing this for 20 years and this trip is the best I have ever been on. The lodge, guides, rooms, boats, help, charter, etc. I didn't have a single person gripe about anything and it is a good feeling when all the faces have smiles on them.
A update on the fishing - the high water, the fish were scattered but most of the guys caught 20 to 30 a day. Maybe 30 or 40 under 6 lbs for the whole group. The big fish was 12lbs 4 ozs the group all had accurate scales and wrote down any over 8 lbs. There were 9 over 11 lbs, 32 over 10lbs, 55 over 9lbs and probably 100 over 8lbs. My first day I caught 2-9s, 2-10s, 1- 11 1/2 and several 8s

from jim Farrow:

Dave Seitenbach, Randy Wedel, Dean Akin, and Jim Farrow, caught 477 fish in 4 days! Each of us caught our personal best on the trip, w/ 3 fish over 10, 2 over 9, 13 over 8, and 19 over 7, and countless others in the 5-6# range. In fact, one of our group caught so many fish that he was, "en fuego", as he described it. The black jig w/ Senko trailer was the big fish bait, although my biggest fish and several others over 8 were caught on a rattletrap. The food was great, the service was excellent, and the guides, Juan and Cluadio, were good as they come. Needless to say, we had a blast, and can't wait to come back. Bacarrac is awsome!

from charles Townsend

Our group fished June 26-29th at Lake Baccarac Lodge and enjoyed another great trip. We did not catch as many fish as last time, but the big fish bite was on. All 4 of us caught our largest bass! Big fish were as follows: 10-14, 10-10, 10-7, and a 10-3. A number of 9 lb fish were caught, along with lots of 6-8 lb fish. We rarely caught a fish under 4 lbs! Best baits were 1 oz jigs, swimbaits, and some ratl-traps and crankbaits. Food and hospitatlity were great as always. The last day a MAJOR thunderstorm rolled into the area and we were forced off the lake early - looks like the rainy season has begun. We will be back!!

THe last group of the season departed July 5th and reported an excellent big fish bite. The BassChamp boys Chad Potts, Jeff Massey and others landed fish over 12 pounds. Gil Wright made the last trip of the season and also managed a fish over 10 pounds. Others also reported trophies. The Lodge is closed until Sept 22nd other than a couple small groups coming over the next 6 weeks.

Baccarac proved again this season that it is without question the best Bass Lake in the World!
