I am a serious bass fisherman and I've been fishing in the north west US for 20+ years. My bass fishing goal has always been to catch the 'elusive' + 10
pounder. While on this trip, I exceeded that goal - more then I ever imagined. I still can't believe it - but I caught a 10.4, 10.6, 10.14, 10.11, 11, 11.4, 11.14 and a 12.2!!! I know some people might doubt these weights, but the photos are my proof and they are hanging on Russ' lunker board in the tackle shop at the lodge.

Most of the fish were suspended in 17 to 35 feet of water. We caught them on pearl swim baits and fat free citrus shad cranks. As our fishing days went on, the fish started moving to the banks and we were able to catch some 7's and 8's and one 10 pounder on top water super spooks.

We didn't catch a huge # of fish. We averaged 25 to 35 fish a day. But when you got a bite, it was a BIG one. We had 21 seven pounders, 17 eight pounders, 15 nine pounders, 5 fish in the 10 pound range, 4 fish over 11 pounds and the one 12 pounder! All I can say is you have a little piece of bass fishing heaven there!

Thanks again for a fabulous trip! I hope to see you again SOON!

Mike Bradshaw's group of 6 in 4 days of fishing caught 23 bass over 10 pounds with Mike himself catching 11 of the total.

Wally C a fireman from Az yesterday caught 6 bass over 10 pounds.

All of the bigger fish are coming on swimbait and big spinnerbaits.

Day one of the Bill Hicks Grp ( grp of 24 from Hobbs )

fishing the 18th ... The over all numbers of fish caught per boat was way down( some boats only recording 15 fish ) ...But the size was not. With 24 anglers on the water today a total of 16 bass over 10 pounds recorded ranging from 10.3 to 14.1. Russ Johnson also was on the water and reported 2 fish over 10 and breaking off on one that was a gaint. Russ has been fishing the deep structure on the south end of the Lake. Rene has been fishing up the river.

All the big fish coming from deep water on swimbaits and slow rolling 1 oz spinnerbaits on the botto. So far the topwater bite has not been like last season......

Son OF Bass

Father/son group consisted of David Miller, Kyle Miller, Paul Miller, B.J. Hacker, Michael Sestak, Jimmy Irish, Jim Irish and Jeff Irish.

October 11: B.J. had a 10.8; Jimmy a 10.11 and 10.2; and first timebass fisherman, Paul, had a 10.2 and 10.9! The SOBs had 5 bass over 10 lbs; 3 nine pounders (two by David, one of which was 9.13); 7 eights; 7 sevens; 6 sixes; 8 fives; and 4 fours. About 130 total bass. October 12: Jim had a 12.4, the largest of the trip for the SOBs, and a 9.1; Jimmy had a 10.11; Jeff had a 11.6 (next largest for trip); and Kyle had a 10.0 and 9.3. The SOBs had 4 bass over 10 lbs; 2 nines; 7 eights; 14 sevens; 9 sixes; 5 fives; and 9 fours. About 105 total bass.

October 13: Paul, Jim and Jeff each had 10 pounders, with a 10.5 for newbe Paul; and another big niner for Michael. The SOBs had 3 bass over 10 lbs; 5 nines; 3 eights; 6 sevens; 8 fives; and 3 fours. About 50 bass.

For the three day trip, the SOBs had 39 fish over eight pounds with 12 fish over ten pounds. They caught at least one ten pounder in each of the six half day outings. Cranks and swimbaits caught most of the nines and tens, with a few on big spinner baits. No large bass were caught on topwaters, and the SOBs abandoned them after the first morning to focus on larger fish. Only a few bass were caught on sinkos and lizards. Most of the larger bass were caught on flats (20 feet plus or minus) next to deeper water, both in the main lake and up the river channel. A few good fish were caught on points, but they were usually the smaller four to seven pounders. The ratio of big bass (over four pounds) caught to total bass caught was incredible (30%, 50% and 60% for the three days). As the days passed, the group was undoubtedly fishing more for larger bass and passing up top waters, plastics, etc. The six, seven, and eight pound bass were extremely hard fighters, usually more than the ten pounders. A large number of big fish were hooked and lost, usually if an SOB couldn’t keep them from jumping or didn’t get a good hook set! The weather was hot and humid, which made the beer and margaritas taste even better. The lake was smooth and the boats were trouble-free. The guides, food and Lodge hospitality were all excellent

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a wonderful trip we had to Lake Baccarac Lodge. Terry, Rene and all the staff just keep making this trip better and better.

The food was exceptional and the service was the same. Of course all of us are there for the fishing and this trip was the best fishing that I have

ever had!!!!!!!!!! We only keep up with the big fish this time and here is the count: 18 fish between 8 and 9lbs, 9 fish between 9 and 10lbs, 1 10.4 fish, 1 10.8 fish, and 1 13.1lb fish. The report from the lake said that I caught a 13.4 and Tina Gilcrease the 13.1 but the reverse was the actual truth!!!! Can you imagine that a gal that has only been fishing for bass seriously about 2 years beat me with that 13.4!!!!! But she did. At one place we fished for about 2 1/2 hours and caught many fish the smallest was over 6lbs!!!!!!!! I just have never seen such a huge % of the fish caught running over 6 lbs. Well I can't wait to get back for my next trip which is

Oct 15. By the way they told us there was no topwater bite yet but we averaged 22 on top every morning early and the 10.8 was one of them.

Yesterday morning we lost at least 4 fish over 10 lbs on top and got 2 over 8 and one over 9 in the boat. I guess it is pretty obvious that I am pretty pumped up about Baccarac and Terry's lodge.
