Numbers of fish and size are really picking up at Lake Baccarac. The fish are moving away from the thick cover and out on the points and to the open water humps. Today Bill Doll caught a nice 12.0 , 10.9 and 9.8 . Other boats also caught several fish 9 to 10 pounds. April and May are going to be excellents and I hope all make a trip soon. Rene

Just got back after fishing from 3/19 thru 3/21 at Baccarac. The Lodge is top notch with courteous staff who bend over backwards to accommodate you. The sleeping arrangements and food were awesome. The boats are new and provide plenty of room to fish and stowe your gear. You will only need to bring Lizards and Rattletraps. The fish are crazy for pumpkin seed and watermelon seed lizards; 6" - 8". The fish will also hit 1 ounce rattletraps, as well as Pop R's at night. There is so much bait in the lake right now that the fish are gorging themselves. The water at the lake is very high and thus the fish are in the cover of the trees which run along the shore line. It is very difficult to get bait up to the shore due to the trees. The best action is fishing the points or the deep humps. If you have the money, I would suggest trying to book Rene for a day as your guide. He is an excellent instructor and will teach you how to fish this lake. His enthusiasm is addictive and he is a top-notch fisherman. I also would recommend using the charter flight into the lake. We flew with Mike who was an excellent pilot and very accommodating as well. These guys make you feel like you are family. The fishing was slow due to the post-spawn season and the high water level. The fish are powerful beyond my wildest imaginations. The smaller fish hit your bait like a freight train. The numbers for us ranged in the 20-35 fish per day per boat. The majority of the fish we caught were in the 2-5 pound range with a few larger up to 8 pounds. The first day with Rene, I was able to land several 3-4 pounders, a 5.5, 6, 6.5 and an 8. I have sent a few pictures to post. Others in my group caught fish up to 8 lbs. too. Derek Krider

Details:

We have had two days of rain early this week, which is adding more water to the lake which is already full. The fish are very active on the banks but are extremely hard to catch because of the inability to cast from the thick cover to the bank. The suspended fish have been hitting rapala shad rapps but this has been a very hit and miss technique. I think the fish will be moving out to the points soon and the numbers caught will pick up considerably once that happens. Also make sure you bring buzzbaits and work them in the morning and the evening across the top of the stick ups.

Fishing could be summed up in two words - Very Tough - we averaged for our boat 25 fish a day and we were probably in the higher end on averages. But the fish caught were fat as pigs and fought harder than fish twice their weight here. Our 4-day average weight was somewhere between 2.5 & 3 lbs. per fish I would guess - which was nice. Water was clear and appeared to be within 4 or so feet from the highest lake level by the water marks left on the brush. Water temperature varied from 69 in the morning the 76 in the evenings. Nothing huge was caught for us but did manage a nice 7.4 lb’er. Most productive bait was green pumpkin Zoom lizards (didn't seem to matter if 6" or 8") worked painfully slow. These same lizards with their tails dipped in red dye also produced a few fish. Our boat could only manage one topwater fish on buzzbait (the 7.4 lb’er) and one missed on Sammy. My partner caught 4 on spinnerbait – I never got a bump on one. Did find the next to last evening (wouldn't you know it) a pearl colored Zoom Super Fluke was productive worked slow in the cuts early in the morning, later in the day or whenever a passing cloud (few and far between) obscured the sun. Only excuse we could come with for the low catch numbers is that the fish were buried back into the newly flooded thick brush and inaccessible - that's our story and we are sticking to it....lol... I guess we just hit the lake at a slow time for some reason. Rene and our guide, Mario (very good), did everything within their power to help us try and figure out what to do to turn on the fish. My experience should not discourage others from Bacarrac as the lake looks like a fish producing machine. It surely won’t hinder me from returning again. All in all, it was a great trip with nice lodging, attentive staff, tasty food, hard working guides and plentiful ice cold beer and margarita's!!! The sights alone were well worth while. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I just was hoping for a little better catching – but that’s just part of fishing. We will get them next time. Andy W.

The fishing continues to be slower. We did have one boat this morning catch 50 fish up to 5 1/2 lbs. The extremely hot weather and the winds from last week pushed the majority of the fish up to the bank and presenting a lure to these fish is very difficult. There are a few pockets in the cover that you can maneuver a boat into and make good casts around the edges. The fish that were hanging around the humps are now suspended and very inactive. Texas rigged watermelon lizards and pearl white flukes have been the two best baits that I used this morning. Today is a very cloudy day and it looks like we'll have rain and it would be nice if we get a little relief from the heat. The fish should move away from the banks and out to the points over time and be a lot more catchable.
