Comments: 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 largemouth bass 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 bass 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. Lake Baccarac is alive and well and we hope to see you at Lake Baccarac Lodge soon!
Feb. 7th - Excellent action of 4 to 8 pound bass. Randy Bolton reporting best overall trip ever to any Mexican bass fishing lake and Lodge. Topwater bass fishing is very very good right now.
