Dr Paul Arturo Rodriguez and his group from Mexico City finishing the season up with a bang. THe numbers of fish caught on crankbaits and swimbaits has been excellent with 2 fish over 11 pounds caught fishing the deep structure in the clear water on the south end of the lake. Dr Paul reports catching 89 fish while fishing solo yesterday with many of the fish around the 4 to 6 pound mark.

The rains are starting and the lake is great shape



June 15th, 16th, report from Terry Hollan :

It seems like it happens every June. There is always a story to tell about the fishing. This yea, I was lucky enough to be a part of the story. At the request of Manuel Salazar, we went to catch an early morning bite up near the cross past Rancho Padre. This time of year, the lake is very low, probably only 30%, so getting to the cross was impossible. Manuel did remember a spot he fished about three years ago when the lake was about at this level, a hole near Cadillac Island. In my fifteen years of operating these lodges in Mexico, I have only had two days that were anywhere close to this; one day in 1997 fishing with my father-in-law at Lake Huites and another day fishing with Rene in the late spring of 2006. On June 15, 2010, I had never seen this kind of action on any lake at any time. We pulled up to the long point that had deep channels on both sides of it, and threw crankbaits and swimbaits and never went without a strike or a fish on for four solid hours. And these were Baccarac bass, the smallest fish being 2
1/2 lbs. and we were catching fish all of the way up to 9 lbs. At one point, we estimated we caught 30 fish over 5 1/2 lbs. in thirty minutes.
All in all, I would hate to guess at the average weight that came from that hole but we caught and released over 150 bass. As we were about to tire from throwing crankbaits, we decided to take a break and Manuel tied on a silver Zara spook and by now, at almost twelve o'clock, with the temperature near 100 degrees, and with his first cast before he could even work the spook, Manuel landed a 12.2 lb. bass. For the next 45 minutes, we threw nothing but topwater with the sun beating down on us and caught an additional 20 bass, almost all of them identical 4 pounders. I have never seen anything like it before. Hopefully, someday, I will see it again.



Ted Thompson had an incredible crankbait bite along with swimbaits in the outside structure, with 14 fish over 9 lbs. and easily catching 150 to 200 bass per boat in a day.

Gil Wright's trip was phenomenal, with him and Mike Watson catching 1200 fish in four days. Unbelieveable numbers of 5 to 8 lb. bass, using crankbaits in Rancho Padre and topwater up the river near the cross.

From Hal Clifford

Terry: Thank you for the kind words. Obviously, the best bass trip in Mexico in over 30 years of fishing down there. The two bis fish were 11-8 and 10-11. I caught the 10-11 the first evening with Gil and Miguel using a black and blue jig with a black and blue fleck senko as a trailer. The 11-8 was hooked on a mediem s...ized white fat free shad. The numbers caught each day was amazing-over 100 fish per boat ranging up to 9 pounds. Gil and Denis caught 112 fish one morning! The big fish are starting to move and the bite is going to be great in the next couple of weeks. I hope to see you again soon. Best, Hal Clifford

Feb 24th

With great pleasure we get to report the following: To our good friend, who for many years has been fishing with us in Mexico and always searching for trophy bass over 10 lbs., today Baccarac was very kind. Hal Clifford, using
Carolina rigged Senkos, caught a 10.0, a 10.3 and an 11.0 fish. All eight
of Gil Wright's group caught over 100 fish per day per boat, with many fish being 4, 5 and 6 lbs., fishing watermelon jigs, medium-running crankbaits, white with a green back. Gil Wright, one of our most accomplished anglers, predicts the big bass bite is about to begin.

Feb. 23rd

We are starting to see size along with the excellent numbers. Vernon Gallo of Oklahoma found honey holes holding excellent number of 6 to 8 lb. bass. Vinnie Della Pello from New Jersey is catching numbers of good fish up to 10 lbs.

Hot baits are jerk baits, brown jigs, silver/blue rattletraps, Popping Image for topwater, and large crank baits.

Feb. 19th

The numbers are continuing to be very strong for groups at the lodge. Dennis McCarty and Steve Wik from California are having a great week so far. While fishing with guide Pedro, Steve caught an 11.0, an 11.3 and an 8.14, along with finding several nice fish in the 7 lb. range As far as baits, you need to bring brown jigs, silver blue rattletraps, super flukes in white and watermelon.

Feb 15th

There have been good numbers of fish but still looking for the trophies. The big fish last week was 6.8 lbs.



FEb 8th

From Ed Daniels:

Joe Goldstein and I just got back after our four-day trip to Lake Baccarac. Just like last year we had a great time and caught a lot of fish. Unlike last year, no big ones. We had a 7-8, five more over 6 pounds, and eight or ten more over 5. A party of six was there as well, and they got an 8-3, and one over 7. Other than being caught in a thunderstorm the first day the weather was great.

I just wanted to pass on some compliments. Our guide Eddie worked very hard and very smart, knows the lake like the back of his hand, and has a great sense of humor. We really enjoyed fishing with him. The BEST thing since last year is the cook, Rodrigo. He is really more of a chef than a cook. His desserts were out of this world - would you believe from scratch cheesecake with a strawberry couli? Fantastic!

This just in from Jerry Kelley of Dallas, TX.

I just wanted to share a little about my recent trip to your lodge at Baccarac. It was one of my better trips to your lodge. We didn't catch alot of really big fish, but we caught hundreds of bass in the 3 to 6lb range and missed several BIG ones and just one fish over 10lbs. I know they will start showing up in the next few days. Our last day on the lake we caught 275 bass between the two of us and the guide. I have fished all over Mexico and never found a better place to fish or lodge, your lodge is 2nd to NONE ! The staff is the best I've found anywhere. The food is excellent and where else in the world can you know with any cast you stand a chance to catch the biggest fish of your life or possibly the next world record. I keep hearing from lots of people who are afraid to go to Mexico and I just don't understand this. It might be dangerous in the border towns and I even agree to this, BUT FOLKS , I assure you, THERE IS NO DANGER IN COMING TO THIS LODGE. So I tell you this if you want to catch not only alot of fish and have a chance at the biggest fish of your life then the only choice is Lake Baccarac, and the ONLY choice for lodging is Lake Baccarac Lodge. FISH ON !!

Jerry Kelley

JANUARY 27 - UPDATE FROM THE LODGE:

Huge rains and a cold front that came through on Friday and Saturday, the 22nd and 23, have caused a dramatic change in the fishing. This week has not produced much in the way of fishing results with very few fish caught in shallow or deep water. The water temperature has cooled six degrees in five days. It remains to be seen if the fishing will improve next week. We will keep you updated.

JANUARY 24TH:

Tough fishing Friday and Saturday with very high winds and big rains forcing us off of the lake. However, before the storm, fishing was excellent upriver with fish up the river caught up to 6 lbs. and at the south end of the lake producing fish up to 9 lbs. in deeper water. The bigger fish are moving up slowly and still are a little out of reach.

Jan 14th

THis week has not produced very many big fish but the numbers of small fish in the first 20ft of water is outstanding.... small being 1 to 3 pounds...Eddie Carmon did catch a 11.9 in 25 ft of water and was broke off within minutes after catching that one ......We are marking lots of bigger fish in 45 ft of water.It also seems that most of the shad and talpia are also in 40 to 45ft of Water

..PLEASE LOOK AT THE SPECIAL PAGE<<<A COUPLE OF BLOW OUT DEALS

JAn 10th

High-quality fishing - countless numbers of 1 to 3 lb. bass and Russ reports a fair number of fish over 8 and seven fish over 10 lbs. The big fish are coming deeper with Carolina rigged watermelon lizards and wacky style 5 inch watermelon senkos. Watermelon jigs along with black and blue 1 oz. jigs produced a good number of quality fish. It seems as though the big fish are moving shallow and we will start seeing more and more trophy bass caught in the next several weeks.

Jan 8th

Leo Osburns group report excellent numbers and also reported a 10.8 amd 9.8 caught on Carolina rigged watermelon Lizzards. Six boats on the water all doing very well with 150 fish being caught per boat

Jan 5th and Jan 6th

Scott Sinclair's group of four had a blow-out day yesterday, January 6.
Although the biggest fish was only an 8.13 (very respectable fish) Scott reported up to 150 fish for his boat with so many 5 and 6 lb. fish, they stopped counting. Little Miguel, who is now guiding for us, has turned out to be an exceptional guide and had the best numbers of the day.

Mike Drain's group of eight flew in yesterday direct from Dallas, departed at 8:30 a.m. and were at the lodge at 11:30 a.m. Our private flights direct from Dallas offer the best convenience clients have ever had - short time to get there and luxury all the way. Mike's group fished 1/2 day yesterday and caught phenomenal numbers.

Narlin's comment, he feels that the big fish are just about ready to bite.
