Had a blast at Lake Baccarac Lodge this week. Broke my 5-4lb PB with a 9-3LB grande. This place is something special. The food was amazing and the newly renovated rooms were nice. Thank you for a trip that I’ll never forget!

What can one say about a trip of a lifetime, It was an adventure to say the least!!! We caught so many fish, I couldn’t tell you how many 5 to over 6 pounders we caught. The number of 2 to 5 pounders was outrageous, you know it’s bad when are letting 5 to 6 pounders jump at the boat just to watch them!! First day I stuck a 7lb 8 oz bass for my second fish of the trip. From there i caught an 8 pounder, then to top it with an 8 lb 8 oz!!! Had an absolute blast, if you are looking for a trip of s lifetime you have to hit up Lake Baccarac Lodge and plan your trip!!! I cant wait until next time!!!!!!

Had an incredible time with some incredible people down in Mexico. Highly recommend everyone trying this trip and talking some buddies into it as well. Memories for life and an experience you just can’t quite find the words for. I got 3 fish bigger than my best ever. And that was a slow week!! Thanks so much to Chad Meenan Wayne Campbell and the entire Universe for blessing me with this trip. I am forever grateful and I somehow gained even more friends and formed some tight bonds I think will last a lifetime.

Once again, Baccarac Lodge treated us like rockstars. The bass showed up in force and punished us for five days straight. Much thanks to Chad Meenan for making sure we were fat and happy all week. Special thanks to lodge owner and amazing pilot, Terry Hollan for keeping us safe – it was a pleasure to finally meet and spend some time with you. Bill Tierney – you’re always a great travel partner – thank you for all the laughs. Finally, thank you to my fellow group anglers…..the fish are great but you guys make this trip what it is. Thank you all for a great time. See you all next year.

Just wanted to drop you a quick email about our stay this past week at your lodge at lake baccarac. This was my first visit, and I attended with the Johnson group, many of them have been visiting since the early 2000’s. Owning a few businesses myself, I can understand about how difficult it can be to offer customers a world class experience, not always easy to do, but your team/staff at the lodge are fantastic. From the scheduling, planning, timeliness of everything from van pick ups, fishing times, wake up calls to meals, it was great, and you definitely have another repeat customer in the future. Narlin and Chad were great, as was all the guides, drivers, and servers. Thank you for putting the right pieces in place and having such great people running your lodge to provide such a great experience for all 8 of us, it really was one that will be remembered for a lifetime.

Just a quick thanks to all the staff and guides at the lodge, top notch and friendly service. And to all the other guests for their helpful tips which turned me on the fish for my last day. Great bunch of passionate anglers. Brian (Canada)

Had another amazing week in heaven with the boys from Utah!!! This one was just shy of 9 for my new PB on topwater. Caught lots of 5-7 lb fish and our boat had 5 fish over 8. Narlin was an absolute pleasure to fish with and Yovani the last 2 days was no slouch! The bite was super tough at times but we managed to still find some great fish..Thanks to all who helped put this together, cant wait to start planning the next trip!
Me and John Stevenson and Narlin also saved a puppy off the shoreline that had been left behind, next time you visit the lodge you’ll get to meet her!

Amazing place, caught them on a variety of baits but best thing was topwater, burrito swimbait and 10” bull worm. Great group of anglers made it an awesome adventure, every day there where tons of laughter, stories and smiles. (Kind of like being around a bunch kids hopped up on skittles). Thanks for everything, great memories for sure. Special thanks to all the folks at Baccarac Lodge for taking care of us.

Well gotta say it’s gonna be hard bass fishing north of the border after fishing at Lake Baccarac the bass there just grow BIG plain and simple ! I caught a bunch of nice fish and lost a bunch of giants that I’ll have nightmares about for who knows how long! The lodge is really nice and all the guys there were great everyone made you feel welcome and were willing to share anything you wanted to try to help in any way possible. For anyone that truly loves bass fishing like I do , you’ve gotta try this place at least once in your life. Now I’m back home I’m already thinking on when I can go back and get some revenge on all the giant fish that hit and got away. Caught my personal best Bass at 8 lbs 13 oz on a top water explosion that you’d have to see to believe. I can’t wait to get back down there ?

Lake Baccarac Lodge was AMAZING. Thanks Mike Bucca for the invite! Went with a great group of guys and look forward to returning again some day!
If this was slow, I can’t imagine it being better. We didn’t even weigh 95% of our 4-6 pound fish;didn’t even count them (we should have) caught 22 fish over 7 lbs—- lost too many BIG ones to count as well. My brother had 7 fish over 8lbs- his biggest of the week being 8lbs 12 oz. I had 4 fish over 8 lbs. one being a 9lb-2oz and a 10 lb fish!

My group of 6-fishermen just returned from Lake Baccarac Lodge Feb. 12th 2006. We have been fishing Mexico for over 15-years and just completed the best trip ever, anywhere. The group’s largest fish was a 12.4oz. lunker taken on top water. Each boat averaged better than 50-fish per day in the 3 to 7lb. class. Food, guides & accommodations were A-#1 beyond comparison. Thanx for a great trip………….

Rene,

I would also like to take this opportunity to express how impressed I was with you and your operation. You are clearly the best fisherman and fishing instructor that I have ever met. I learnt a great deal from you and indeed you are probably a better teacher than any professor in the American university system.

I hope to travel again to Lake Baccarac Lodge in the not too distant future and I have already talked about trips with other faculty members at universities around the U.S.

Again, my most sincere thanks for a magnificent experience.

Terry,

Just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for flying us to Lake Baccarac. You and your staff are really first class. Being a guide and usually taking care of everything for the client I really appreciated the fantastic service and excellent food. The eight of us caught approximately 1200 fish in the three days we were there, even though we had a full moon and windy conditions. We are already looking at dates in October or early November to head back for some more fun.

Thanks again.

Just to signify our most sincere thanks for a great fishing experience. Your hospitality, facilities and personnel were just magnificent. We travel and fish all around the world and never thought that fishing at Lake Baccarac could be what it was. All our expectations came short to what we actually experienced. Your guides were very respectful, experienced, and knowledgeable. The food was delicious and served with lots of charm and good will.

We will surely come back in a larger group. Puerto Rico says “keep the good work, management, fishing practices.” We do belief a new bass world record is waiting to be caught at Lake Baccarac and your Big Bass Lodge

Terry & Staff –

I can not express how great of a time that we all had on our fishing trip. The fishing, Lodging, Food and Staff is all first class. Everything was amazing. I would be more than happy to be a reference to how wonderful everything is there. Terry is easy to work with and very honest. I don’t think I could find a place to match it. The last trip we went on, I caught 35- over 7 lbs and at the largest a 10.2 lb. Also, impressed with the Salazer Family that runs the camps. Been at your camp 3 times in a year and wishing to make it 4 times this year! Thanks for a great trip… Look forward to seeing you soon.

“We had an incredible trip. Terry was great with helping out with details. Why people would travel anywhere else for a fishing trip of a lifetime blows my mind. The staff at the lodge, the guides, the food, the fishing…just amazing. Narlin did a great job managing the lodge and making the trip feel special. Rodrigo the cook was incredible. We fished 4 days and had a 10 pounder in the boat each day. We caught less than 90 fish combined in 4 days, but we weren’t there for numbers. If you wanted numbers, it wasn’t hard to find, we just opted out for numbers and wanted to see a 10 pounder everyday. Seems like on some trips, people are able to get both numbers and big fish. We didn’t care since we were having a blast. This was our first trip so we had a learning curve and still got lucky here and there. We missed some giants too. Here are some videos of our trip.

I cannot argue with the statement that everything you’ve read about Baccarac is absolutely, 100% true. We have been to two other lakes (El Salto and Comedero) on three trips and although we caught higher numbers elsewhere, the average fish from Baccarac was much bigger at between 3 and 7 pounds.

The lodge is top quality and is staffed with a crew of people that do everything they can to ensure that you have the best time possible. The rooms were great and had a more than adequate supply of hot water, quality air conditioning systems and roomy bathrooms. The view from the lodge has to experienced firsthand to be fully appreciated. The food was also phenomenal. I came back heavier than I arrived.

As a veteran of Mexican bass fishing I can honestly state that anyone looking to make the trip south of the border should look no further than Lake Baccarac and Lake Baccarac Lodge. The thing I love the most about this lake is that you KNOW that you could catch the biggest fish of your life on the next cast. You will not experience better fishing, service or scenery anywhere else. Contact Terry or Cheryl Hollan with Reel Mexican Adventures as soon as you can and get your butt down there!

Terry,
I hope all is well with you
I just walked in the door from our annual mid-February bass fishing trip. We went to Falcon Lake this year because I caved to pressure from the other guys in the group. You can quote me on this; My worst day at Baccarac has not lived up to my best day at Falcon and that goes for every guy in our group.

I told the guys I would be coming by myself or with Lily from now on if they didn’t want to come down to Baccarac. I truly regret the choice we made this year. I hope all is well with you

You know I have always had great respect for the straight-shooting nature of your fishing reports. That is rare in the industry. You can quote me on that too.

It has been 15 years since I have been to Lake Baccarac. After visiting all the other lakes in Mexico over the last 5 years LAKE BACCARAC IS THE BEST LAKE IN MEXICO. You have done an outstanding job putting together the prefect package: Excellent lodge on the water, the prefect boat set up, highly motivated staff with great guides and of course ” big bass”.. With the landing strip minutes from the lodge I can’t see myself ever going to another lake

Keep up the good work

Ciao Cheryl,

I had a great trip in May of 2010

Please let everyone know there was absolutely no problems getting into or out of Los Mochis or from Los Mochis to the Lodge. The news about the violence is primarily near the border areas. I saw or heard nothing of the sort in Los Mochis or in the vicinity of the Lodge. It’s unfortunate the news is taken at face value. I if people would just do a little research they would discover Mexico is pretty safe in the tourist areas located away from the border particularly the area around the Lodge.

The staff was outstanding as usual. Since I have a cooking/hotel background and we had the time, I enjoyed spending a little time in the kitchen learning some of the dishes. The food was even more outstanding than the two previous years. I have worked with a few chefs throughout the years but I can’t recall any as motivated and proud as the chef at the lodge. He is a true gem!

Fishing was awesome! Again! We didn’t catch a lot of 10lb+ fish but the numbers of 4-8 lbs were staggering for me. I averaged 80 per day so for the week. I pulled in nearly 500 fish. The strength of the Baccarac Bass always amazes me. Even the 3-4 lbrs are mean and pull so hard I think my rod will break. In fact I did have a rod break during a hook-set on a monster of a fish, again this year. The same happened to me last year and I use Xtra-heavy, quality rods.

Thank you

“I’ve fished Bacarrac before with Chapman-Balderama and even though on my best day I had 5 fish go 1 ounce shy of 50 lbs., Bob Mauldin convinced me to try your lodge.

I fished Bacarrac for 6 days (November 17th-22nd). The moon phase was at it’s worse and due to heavy rains, the lake rose 9 feet the day I arrived. Alex was my guide and he did a good job of finding numerous (40-60/day) suspended fish up to 9 lbs..

However, Rene wanted Lake Bacarrac Lodge to be the only place I stay when I fish Bacarrac (1-2 times a year) so he took me out on my 5th day. I quickly realized Rene was as good at finding fish as most pros in the states. Inspite of the conditions, Rene found the BIG FISH pattern.

Additionally, Rene did everything humanly possible to make sure EVERYONE was having such a good time that they would definitely return (i.e.-giving tackle out of his own box, making sure everyone was pleased with the food, service and accommodations etc.).

I only caught one fish over 10 lbs. that day but Lake Bacarrac Lodge caught one customer for life! Keep up the good work.”

Dear cheryl:

Mel Hansen and I had a very good time at Baccarac. We were impressed with the Lodge, food, guides and the entire package. I have nothing to add to make it better. Mel and I caught 404 fish in six days but the big one never showed up. Mel’s largest was 8# and mine was 6#. We’re looking forward to our return visit next year. Our guide Mario worked very hard for the big fish and was excellent. Rene saw to it that all of our needs were taken care of. Thanks again for all of your help. Keep up the great work

“If you live for the thrill of setting the hook into monster bass then Baccarac is where you will find heaven. It’s literally the best largemouth bass fishing lake in the world . Baccarac is a huge lake that offers cove after cove of seemingly infinite shoreline, structure and points which all hold monster fish. I caught so many bass that my thumbs were raw from landing them!!! (be sure to bring aleve for the “hook setting” arthritis. I caught at least 25 fish equaling and severely surpassing most people’s personal records… scores of 5 to 6 pounders, about 5 seven pounders, a few eights and nines…. out largest fish was 13.2 lbs, with five other fish over 10lbs!!!)

Don’t get me wrong, we worked for them, but what better way to spend four days than manically casting for what could very possibly be the next world record!!!!

Thanks again for the trip!”

Dear Terry,

I can truly say if you like to bass fish Lake Baccarrac is everything you could dream of for a world class bass fishery. We just returned from a one week fishing adventure dated January 24 thru January 31 2006. Dean Capra, Brad Leifermann and our cameraman Mike caught literally hundreds of bass, fishing with our great fishing guide. Fish in the 4lb.to 7lb.class are common place and everyone in our group caught fish in the 10lb. range. With our biggest fish at 12.5lbs. The itinerary that you receive is right on the money as far as great weather, what to bring, accommodations, food, service and the fishing.

Lake Baccarrac is where you go if you want to catch the biggest bass of your life. We shot over 6 hours of live action video and could catch these fish with any presentation we chose. Our large fish were caught with saltwater size top water Storm Chug Bugs in the morning and afternoon. With a very strong crank bait bite all day long. The new DT 7 flat sided Rapala Blue silver was fantastic using a stop and go retrieve. At one point I caught 17 fish in a row with the crank bait. It was just amazing.

Again I can’t say enough about this place, we were treated like kings. The lodge is sparkling clean, the Margaritas were tasty and I can’t wait to get back there. If you do decide to go to Lake Baccarrac beware, the fishing is so good you will truly be spoiled for the rest of your life.

Yours Truly,

Dear Mr. Hollan,

Thank you for having a wonderful chef, Antonio “Tony” Navarro.

Tony always has a smile for my traveling companion, Morris Turner, and me and makes us feel like royalty.

The first night we arrived, it was very late, probably 11:00 PM or after, but Tony had fixed a special meal for all of us late arrivals. The meal was what I call “comfort food.” It was a half chicken with a potato creamed dish that was perfect. We felt starved and this meal was completely satisfying and allowed us to have a delightful night’s sleep.

Every evening Tony came to us and mentioned a couple of meals, invited us to tell him our choice and it was always prepared just right.

During the meal, Tony would always come to our table and ask how we liked the food. Tony’s courtesy makes us feel happy to be here, and his variety of menus makes us happy also.

On behalf of Morris and me, again, Thank You.

Sincerely,
Gana Worgum

Dear Mr. Hollan,
We are grateful and thankful that you have the special person – “Rene” – heading Lake Baccarac Lodge management.

Rene made us feel welcome and comfortable here at Lake Baccarac Lodge, but more than that, he recognized my traveling companion, Morris Turner, as an experienced fisherman with a desire to have a wonderful time fishing for bass at this renowned lake.

Rene personally took us fishing to a very hot spot for bass in this lake as soon as he recognized Morris had some disappointment in the lake. At Rene’s selected spot, we immediately caught two fish at the same time – both large and exciting fighters. This kept up for some time. Rene’s happy and excited manner caught us up in the fishing frenzy and enjoyment we had looked forward to – in famous Lake Baccarac, Mexico.

This trip is especially meaningful to Morris because he is the survivor among his fishing buddies – having fished many, many, areas on the North American Continent, from Indiana, Canada, Florida, Texas, etc., in creeks, lakes and the ocean. Since he was a little boy, Morris’ dad was a fisherman, is age 83 and the only survivor, but senses that they somehow know that Morris is here having a wonderful time. Thank you for Rene and the good staff he keeps.

Sincerely,
