Dec 27th


We just returned from Baccarac and it was an amazing trip to say the least. First day was a half day on the water we caught just 7 fish beating the banks with spinners and top waters. Worst of the group
by far. The next morning we told Genaro that we wanted to fish deeper off the banks and it was game on from there on out.

Brad caught 5 fish over 9 which one was over 11 and we easily boated 50 to 60 fish over 6 lbs. The next day it was my turn with 2 over 9 and a lot of 7 & 8 lb fish. We caught 70 to 80 fish a day the rest of the trip, all good quality heavyweights. The majority were caught on Carolina rigged power-worms and 7 in Yum Dingers. Great trip, great knowledgeable guide. Cannot wait to go back. And by the way the chef
was outstanding also.

Hal pulling in a nice 10.14 lber. both reporting excellent numbers of 6 to 9 lbers mostly caught on senkos

Baccarac is tuned in and should produce excellent results over the next 6 weeks

All boats reporting excellent fishing to Narlin. Unreal numbers of of 4 to 7 pound bass caught on black/blue senkos, rattletraps, med running crankbaits. Gil Wright and Hal Clifford caught and released over 200 bass on Nov 2nd

Nov 2nd

What a difference a day makes! With the afternoon of Oct. 31st somewhat slow to average, Nov. 1st proved to be outstanding fishing. Hal Clifford's boat caught over 200 bass, reporting many 4 to 6 lb. bass with a good number of 7, 8, 9's and fish over 10. Hal is lucky enough to fish with our good friend and legendary Baccarac fisherman, Gil Wright. Paul Kennedy and Joe Gann's boat who were fishing with 4 inch swim baits, caught two fish over 9 lbs. but got into a good school of 6 to 8 lb. bass, unbelievable action with great overall numbers. Joe commented that it was the best fishing he has ever had on Baccarac. With six boats on the water today, we will have additional reports this evening. Baccarac is red hot if you go by this report. We do have a good flow of business over the next ten days and we are very excited to see what the lake will produce.

Hottest Colors:
Time of Day:


Oct 30th

Manuel reporting excellent numbers and size for yesterdays report with fish to 10 pounds caught on 10 inch watermelon seed Lizards

Oct 27th

No set pattern over the last couple of days, with the results varying widely. Boat #1 in the morning session caught a total of four fish, three of them being just over 1 lb.; one fish caught on Rico PopR, 10 lb. 14 oz.
In the afternoon session fishing up the river, using Senkos and baby bass colored flukes, 78 fish were caught up to 6 lbs. with a good number of four to five lb. bass. Boat #2 being guided by Pablo managed roughly 40 bass in each session, up to 7 lbs. using baby bass laser eye swim shads.

The runway at Bacubirito has been temporarily closed because of permitting issues. A 180 day permit has been issued and now we are waiting on the local military to receive orders from their commander to get our airport back open.

Oct 22nd

No much to report as fishing slowed with the hot days. Most boats reporting 40 fish up to 6 pounds caught on senkos and jerkbaits. Bill Tyson'd boat did not have any luck on topwater in the morning or evening >>>

Oct 21st

The reports from the Lake indicate that topwater fishing has slowed but the senko bite has been really good. The deeper fish like the 10inch power worms. Dr Bill Tyson reports boating his biggest stringer on Monday of 5 fish 41 pounds

Oct 18th

Week oct 10th to Oct 15th : Best baits being Rico PopRs, yellow magic, along with senkos and watermelon red flake, five inch storm wild eyed swim baits in white, chartreuse and pearl, along with ten inch ghost and watermelon seed Berkley Power Worms.
Fishing started out very strong with Gil Wright catching a 10.4 and on the same day catching an 8.10, a 7.11, a 7.0, a 7.3 and a 7.1. Denis Bootenhoff also managed a 9.9, 8.8, 8.5, 7.12 and a 7.5. Gerald Hatch, while fishing with Manuel, caught a 9.7, and Baird Archbald's big fish of the week was an 8.4. Bill Fruit landed a 9.6. The action picked up towards the end of the week and topwater was fantastic, with Tom Spanel of Amarillo catching 45 fish using surface plugs. Not every session was fantastic but the sessions that were good were excellent. Lake Baccarac is currently 93% full and all groups reported a great time.

Oct 7th

The fishing is only getting better on the Lake with Randy Sweigart ending his trip with a 12.1 pound grande.. The lake is producing excellent numbers of 5 to 7 bass along with some trophies. Great fall fishing

Oct 5th

Topwater in the morning and going deep with 10 inch worms and 8 inch lizards in the mid day...Great action with fish up to 9.13 pounds

Oct 4th

We just thought top water action was good. Narlin, while fishing with Randy Sweigart, reports that fishing 25 feet deep with ten inch worms is by far the best pattern on the lake right now. They are managing to catch countless five to seven lb. bass. Even though they did pull a 10 lb. bass from top water, the action with the 5 to 7 lb. bass is much better. Using clear colored smoke and even watermelon 10 inch worms in the southern end of the lake produces the best number of bites. With the guide fishing, making a total of three fishermen in the boat, some boats are catching over 300 bass in a day. This is what Baccarac fall fishing is all about!

Oct 1st and 2nd

Action, action, action! TOPWATER ACTION! Narlin called in and sarcastically reported nothing to get excited about (only lots of fish on topwater with some fish weighing 8 lbs.). No super grandes but plenty of fish for the last three days. Super spooks, along with yellow Magics and Super Pop'Rs have been the best topwater bait, with four inch swim baits from Berkley doing great across the points. Sixto has been guiding our good guest Randy Sweigart and reports similar action and is very excited about the numbers of fish he has seen the last three days.

Narlin is getting ready for the first official guests of the season, arriving on Wednesday of this week, September 29th, and has reported the following fishing: While fishing with Sixto, they did not find the action they had the week before but they found huge fish on top water using Zara Spooks and working them slowly, almost at a snail's pace, across the points.
Narlin reported huge blow ups from the monsters, with Sixto catching the bigger fish of the afternoon with one fish over 8 kilos (16 lbs.). Narlin emphasized that patience must be exercised this time of year when fishing top water, but with cloud cover all day long, it's possible to fish your favorite top water lure throughout the day.

We are very excited and we are looking forward to more great fishing reports in the coming days.

Sept 19th:

With the lake currently 85% full and new water arriving daily, the rebirth of Baccarac has happened one more time. This is such an exciting time of year for us. The lake is full of water and the scenery could not be more breathtaking. Narlin has recently returned from hosting a small group of doctors from Los Mochis, Mexico. With good numbers of fish being caught, Narlin rated it as outstanding. The best action was in the coves near Wasima but the bigger fish, as always, have shown up in Papachaw and being landed on Berkley Power Bait swim shads, along with XPS Laser Eye shads.
The biggest fish over the last couple of days has been a 10 lb. 6 oz.

We do have a couple of dates in November that are going at 35% off, so please call our office if you are interested.
