Comments: Topwater bass fishing produced fish over 10 pounds this Morning…more details soon.
The bass fishing from the previous two weeks was slow. The last four days offered only average results, boating 30 – 70 largemouth a day up to 7 lbs. Our Japanese clients, fishing predominantly top water, enjoyed their trip because 90% of their catches were on top water. The senko bite, spinner bait on top water offered the best results.
The mornings have been cool but the afternoons have certainly heated up. The water temperature on Lake Baccarac will start warming from this point on.
The water level, similar to all lakes on the Western side of Mexico, is lower than we would like to see it. Baccarac is currently around 30% capacity, with only about nine or ten percent useful water remaining for irrigation and electricity. We have seen these levels three times in the last ten years.
