THe All Star Bass - Shoot Out starts Nov 9th LArry Beard and Gil Wright the 1 and 2 seeds for the shoot out.....will post results at the end of the shoot out
One boat catching over 45 fish yesterday with most anglers having a tough bite with fish suspended. flukes and senkos fished slow triggering the best bite. one more day no day fish over 9 pounds....Manuel on the water again today
anglers not catching any fish over 9 pounds now for 3 days, very strange!!!! high pressure system maybe....numbers of fish caught low compared to late last week when we had excellent numbers and size
results varied the last 2 days on the water. with no fish over 10 pounds caught on the 3rd or the 4th
hot baits zoom flukes in watermelon, watermelon red, watermelon candy, senko style 4 inch and 5 inch in black and blue, 1 oz jigs black and blue, 4 inch and 5 inch talpia colored swim baits, chart/white 1 /2 oz spinnerbaits, topwater is fair with yellow magics and spooks
temps are still very warm for this of year
from Mark Glasscock
I’ve been lucky enough to fish all of the great lakes in the US and Mexico, and I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to fish Lake Baccarac. Before coming, I had read all of the reports and don’t know that I really believed them 100%. I did see the photos on the website – very impressive – but I still had a hard time believing. But upon my arrival, seeing the photos on the walls of the tackle store, I absolutely dropped my jaw. Now I understand that it’s just not FEW 9 to 18 lbs bass, it’s thousands, with many different faces associated with those bass. I had still not caught on the bass on the lake, but instantly felt like I became part of this elite club.
It wasn’t until late afternoon the first day that I realized that this lake was a bass fisherman’s paradise, a structure fisherman’s dream. I was told there was a great top water bite, senkos, flukes, spinner baits, this and that, but my guide insisted that if I was happy to fish deep and to fish structure, I would be well rewarded trying to lure these bass with jigs and heavy-weighted plastics. We founds spots on the lake that must have been holding thousands of monster bass. As I was looking at the depth finder, I couldn’t believe my eyes.
Did I catch a trophy? Oh, yes. Did I catch five fish over the magical ten lb. mark? Yes. Is it the best trip I have ever been on for big bass? Without a doubt. But I’m more excited to understand what’s coming in the future for this lake, if taken care of. These are the hardest fighting, healthiest bass I have ever seen. The structure alone is enough to make you come back. The guide I had absolutely had radar on when a bass was about to hit my lure.
It’s not an easy lake to fish. With a good guide, it increases your odds but you still have to be on top of your game at Lake Baccarac. Oh by the way, the lodge was great; the food beyond excellent. Manuel was the ultimate host and guide. I don’t see myself going to another lake to fish for bass. I’ll be back as soon as I can, hopefully to bring many, many more friends.
