Fishing overall the last 4 days was very good: Mike Wilson from Tulsa commented that it was his best trip ever to Mexico with 1 over 10, 3 over 9, 4 over 8 and countless 6 and 7 lbers...Greg Riggle reported excellent results and the Richey group had 2 over 10 and where in the fish all day long.........Baccarac is red hot
The morning of the 25th produced good results with Bubby Richey landing 1 over 10 and most boats having good results on senkos and flukes... The afternoon of the 25th was very slow with as th fish seem to shut off until right before dark
The Lodge is full and all boats but a couple of boats reporting good to excellent results with Nic Richey boating 1 over 10 the first 1/2 on the water// topwater late with smaller poprs producing good numbers
For some, the fishing has been incredible and for some, it's been a little slow. Jimmy Manley just finished his trip and had a great trip with four fish over 10 lbs. caught between him and Randy Warner. The first half day, he caught a ten plus and a 9.13 on consecutive casts. Since coming to Lake Baccarac Lodge, Jimmy has logged somewhere in the neighborhood of fifty fish over ten. Larry Beard, returning, reported a 12.4 and a very good bit.
After fishing Lake El Salto for the last couple of years, Larry reported that he's happy to be back at the best lake in Mexico. Wayne Null, a first-timer to Lake Baccarac, didn't break the ten pound mark but caught several fish near ten pounds and he said that Lake Baccarac Lodge was the best lodge accommodations he has ever been to and Lake Baccarac the best lake ever. Tim Wallen caught a 10.7 and a 12.2 on top water; after several trips, this was his first time to break the ten pound mark. Gil Wright didn't break ten pounds this trip but had an incredible amount of seven to nine pound fish caught on top water. The Rodney Rice group from St. Louis struggled a bit, but they all reported nice sized fish on at least one session during their trip. The fishing is very good but the bite is very weak. The fish are trying to suspend. The best pattern the past week has been Super Flukes and Wacky Style Senkos with a slow presentation.
The fish seem to be suspending the lake level is dropping

Morning report :
The big fish are starting to show up with Russ Johnson catching one fish over 10 on a watermelon, Texas rigged Senko and Brian Harold catching one over 11 on a wacky style Senko in twenty feet of water. The Scott Sinclair group is having excellent top water action using Bill Quattrucci's Mutant Mouse. We might all want to have one of these in our tackle box before long! All in all, fishing is rated good to excellent for the last day.
The freezing weather we experienced last week, as a side note, destroyed almost 100,000 acres of crops in the area. It might have been the best thing, however, that could have happened on Lake Baccarac. The water temperature dropped almost eight degrees and did shut the fishing off for a day or two, but the top water bite has returned and we are experiencing phenomenal numbers of fish up to seven and eight pounds. Steve Gilcrease reported a couple of twelve plus pounders on top water as well. I do think the big fish will be hard to find until the water warms back up, but I think this exciting action will continue. In the past, Baccarac bass have always liked Zara Spooks, anything with more of a stealthy presentation but Pop'Rs and Buzz Baits are definitely the top water bait of choice this week. There is a chance that the lakes in Sinaloa will be drawn down rapidly as the
farmers try to replant after this recent destruction. Only time will tell
what their plan will be. Baccarac is alive and well and we hope to see you at the lodge soon!
Excellent action of 4 to 8 pound bass. Randy Bolton reporting best overall trip ever to any Mexican bass fishing lakeand Lodge/////topwater is very very good right now
The water temp has dropped over 8 degrees since the cold blast lake week. The bigger fish have disappeared but the action on top has been excellent the last couple of days..The best bite on plastic has been motoroil colored brush hogs and topwater bite has really turned back on for fish up to 8 pounds
02/04/2011 after the cold front the numbers have come back with fish up to 7 pounds caught. The size have disappeared according to Narlin at the Lodge..Overall great numbers of fish for all boats. No fish over 8 reported the last 4 days
