Nov 4th RED HOT ACTION
Rancho Padre area is producing unbelievable action, with a good number of fish between 4 and 8 1/2 lbs. Every week, we seem to be catching a little bit bigger fish and we have never seen this kind of action at Lake Baccarac.
Narlin Salazar did catch and 11.3 lb.'er on topwater on November 3rd.
Catching 100 fish per day per person is very attainable right now. As the weather cools, we predict more and more topwater action and we are already starting to see a lot of big fish busting shad in the back of the coves.
Wassama area seems to be holding the bigger fish and we are predicting some monsters to be caught out of there very soon. Watermelon lizards, medium running crankbaits are producing the best numbers, along with 5 inch senko style watermelon june bug plastics.
Nurhan Papucciyan and his group from Canada reporting the best bass trip they have ever had with 50 fish person being caught each morning and each afternoon...Watermelon Lizzards producing the best numbers and 4 inch swimbaits producing the larger fish
Steve Rudy just returned from the Lodge and reported the best trip he has ever had in Mexico after making 4 trips to El Salto. Steve's big fish was only 7.5 pounds but the action was world class with Steve getting broke off with a couple of big ones
Narlin reporting excellent results with very very good numbers caught up the river .
Les Dawson's boat reported catching 412 bass up to 7.3 pounds in three days on the water. Using crankbaits and watermelon lizzards
Very good numbers of 3 to 5 pound fish, the best numbers we have seen. Some boats catching over 125 bass for the day!! Caught mostly on Watermelon Lizzards and 5" watermelon senkos rigged wacky.
Note: We have a couple of dates where we are looking for two people on a direct flight into Baccarac for info call Terry direct at 806 679 4433 ( cell )
Hurricane Rick had very little effect on the Lake with the water level remaining about the same. The weather is cooling and the topwater bite should start soon
Oct 16, 17, 18th
October 14, Ed Connors fished Lake Baccarac using mainly 8 inch watermelon plastic lizards and he reported excellent results in the 3 - 5
1/2 lb. range. Ed estimated catching between 40 and 45 fish per session with very few small fish, mainly catching 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 bass. Ed had some luck on small citrus shad, gizzard shad, small crankbaits.
Wallace Calloway's group arrived Oct. 15 and fished the next three days, through the 18th. Wallace, who has been to the lake many times, reported 40 to 50 fish per boat, most fish being 1 to 5 lbs., not catching any fish over the 5 lb.
mark. He used mostly plastics, crankbaits and spinnerbaits. It seems like the big fish are very deep. The local guides have reported catching fish on swimbaits in deeper water - 40 feet - but we have not been able to put the clients on those fish yet. Water temperature is 81 degrees. The lake is currently over 80% full and clear.
The weekend of August 8 and 9
We normally don't entertain many guests during the hot, rainy summer months. This year, we are trying something new. Our recent guest from Mexico City, Dominic Luna, described it as a tale of two lakes: Late afternoon, as the rainshowers move in and as the clouds build up, the fishing was nothing short of phenomenal, with Dominic and his friends, along with guide Sixto catching one fish over 14 lbs. on a Rico Pop'r; three fish all within three ounces of the 14 lb. mark on solid chrome Husky Jerk baits. The fish were shallow while the lake was covered with shade from the clouds, so Sixto consistently threw his Revenge solid blue jig right up on the bank and slowly drug it into the water. Over and over and over, he caught the fish feeding on the bank. The clear skies in the morning offered no fish at all, according to the recent group. Dominic said: The morning bite is just terrible.
Yet, every afternoon, the fish they could not find before the rains would show up.
2008/2009 season summary
What a season it was at Lake Baccarac. Fishing in October started out with nothing but huge fish, literally with a 6 lb. average, sometimes not catching fish under 6 or 7 lbs. for the entire trip. Many personal bests.
Read the report from Bobby Knight, from Gil Wright, from Greg Riggle during the beginning of October 2008. Booking agent Ricky Green came back testifying, this is the best trip I have ever been on fishing 20 years in Mexico, with nine fish over 11 lbs. and 32 fish over 10 lbs. and an estimated 100 fish over 8 lbs. on his October 21st trip. Ricky wrote to us, saying Baccarac is just an incredible place.
With the late October hurricane, the lake was flooded and fishing changed dramatically. Clients were still landing plenty of big fish, but numbers of fish caught were very low. With the high water and high population of shad, it was very hard at times to get the bass interested in biting artificial lures. There were many isolated stories about excellent numbers and excellent big fish, but after October, there were many challenging days on the water. Gil Wright, who is a monthly guest at the camp, had a great trip in November, catching 13 over 10 lbs. and 36 over 9 lbs. Go back and read Tom Redington's report from the first of December - unbeliveable big fish action.
Predicting the numbers would pick up at some point, we did not really see great action again until June, although all during the season, without a doubt, the average big fish this season was larger than the average big fish last season. We started the new year out January 1 with multiple 14 lb.
fish. We continued to have sometimes unbelievable action and incredible numbers, but sometimes we had neither. All of this was contributed to by the overpopulation of shad and the high water all season. Please go back and read the corresponding reports.
In summary, by the time late May and June came around, Baccarac was repeating what it had done the year before. As a forecast for next season, we look for great fishing. We saw an incredible spawn in the spring of 2009. Those new fish will absolutely devour the excess shad in the lake.
Baccarac, without a doubt, is and will remain the best bass lake in Mexico.
