Lake Baccarac Dec 3 - Dec 8 *VIDEO ADDED*

Recommended Posts

I wanted to take a fishing vacation to either El Salto or Lake Baccarac. After speaking to a few guys ( @A-Jay )and seeing reports of Lake Baccarac bigguns, I settled on Lake Baccarac from Dec 3 - Dec 8th. Multiple 10lb+ bass were caught in November and so I had to see what this lake was all about.

Got there Sunday and fished Mon to Thurs and had an amazing time catching a bunch of 3-5lb bass who fought harder than I could ever imagine! These bass were MEAN and STRONG. They hit my lures like a mack truck and dove so hard I thought I was fighting small tuna lol.

 

 

 

Top water got em early in the morning and then mainly big 12" worms, 7" senkos and 1oz jigs with 7" senko trailers were the big hit.  There was no love for swim baits but I did manage some 2-3lbers on the 6.8" Keitech paired with the 3/4oz warbaits underspin and my Jackall Gantarel.  Also, a bass pro mentioned how he loved Omega Custom Tackle's Raptor Bladed Jig so I bought a few of them and their football and structure jigs to take with me.  I threw the Raptor Bladed jig in white/chart and paired them with a pure white Strike King Rage Tail Craw. I dyed the claws with spike it garlic chartreuse and got OBLITERATED at Baccarac. The action of the jig and rage tail craw were amazing and so erratic that my guide was super impressed and said the action was muy loco lol. I slew 30 bass on that setup alone in the morning, up to about 5lbs.

 

It was my last day of fishing where we found the bigguns. I was using my Omega Custom Tackle Pro Structure Jig in Camo Craw with the 7" black senko and CRUSHED IT all in the morning.

 

Landed a 7.81, 7.12, 6.94, 9.81 MY NEW PB!!!! and a 9.12 all from 6am to 10am and mainly in just two spots. I couldn't believe it.

I didn't break into the double digit club but I will next time!  I'm so hooked on this place, can't wait to head back.  I can see why there are a lot of repeat customers.  Everyone at the lodge was great.  Highly recommended to anyone who wants to experience big bass fishing heaven!


I'll have some videos of the catches added later.

Great trip. Sounds like you have caught the fever. Your second trip is already scheduled, right?

Great report and pictures! Looks like you had an amazing time, but it’s hard not to at Baccarac! Like you, I also fell just short of the double-digit mark with a 9-13. That place is so addicting. I’m working on another trip sometime next year. 

 

Way to go on the Baccarac bass!

Oh for sure I've got Baccarac Fever! 2nd trip is still up in the air.  Would like to get some friends to go next time but no one is addicted to bass fishing as much as I am. lol.  I met a seasoned vet, Ed Newell, who was already on his 3rd trip this year.  He was there in Oct,Nov and Dec, and caught several 10lbers+ each time, he's a beast!

This was considered a slower time too!  When @A-Jay went in November, they had more people catch bass up to 12lbs with more people fishing.  There were a total of 7 of us and only Ed and Big Al got a few 10lb+ bass.

You have to go!  When do you plan on going. Some months may be better than others..

It's the best ever!! I wish I had gone earlier! I was excited and slightly bummed that I didn't get my 10 yet but Ed Newell told me his first 3 trips he caught a 9-15 each time before he broke into the 10lb club lol.  He's got a interesting theory of when to fish too, seems to help him land big bass.

And there it is ~ ANOTHER amazing trip, super satisfied angler & one more Basshead who has a new standard in which to measure all other bass fishing against ! 

 

Congrats on the New Personal Best - Gorgeous bass too.

Thank you!  I got super hyped after seeing your most recent trip. Wish i had gone in Nov.  I am officially spoiled and forever a Baccarac fan!!!

 

They sure do!  Got a like and comment from them on my Instagram! Haha.

Definitely made my day.  I still want to book a trophy trip with Matt to really learn how to actually catch big bass but he's so busy.

Those are great fish!!! I hear reports all the time of guys who go up there and not clear the 7 pound mark. You did awesome and caught some absolute giants man. Well done. Was fun reading your report and the excitement is real. The adrenaline rush is incredible. The second you climb into the boat and the guide pushes the boat off shore to go fishing, there is a feeling like none other. You just KNOW something crazy is about to happen that morning or evening. One of these days we will get a big group of Bassresource guys up there at the same time. The record seems to be 3 now? Dwight, Andy, and Jeff? We can beat that. I will be visiting this place the rest of my life as finances permit.

Sorry it took me a bit but finally got a highlight video of my final morning at Lake Baccarac!  Took me awhile to do this but it was worth it.  Hope you like it!

Thanks A-Jay!!  Watching your reports and vids on Baccarac inspired me!

 

And AMEN TO THAT.  That day has forever changed bass fishing for me.  I don't know how to adjust to fishing locally lol

 

Couldn't believe I caught all of those big ones in one morning session!  I just couldn't believe how many big bass hung out together and how HARD these bass fight and pull.  I felt like I was fighting albacore. 

 

I have a clip where I set the hook on a BIG one.  I'm sure it was big because it didn't really budge.  After a few cranks, he just got off somehow.  I have still have no idea.  :o

Trust me I didn't want to leave Friday morning!  I wanted to get back out there and fish lol.  Thank you sir!  One of the best trips ever.  What's crazy is that it can get better!!  Everyone needs to go and check it out.

Haha yea.  All in ONE morning.  Those were caught starting around 7am till around 10:30am ish.  Couldn't believe it.  Ya sucks it wasn't a DD but I had chances and lost probably 1 DD the night before and possibly one during that morning.

People that say largemouth don't fight hard have clearly never caught a big one. I caught an 8 one time that pulled the rod way down in the water and almost pulled me off the deck. Thanks for the report and video and kudos for championing the fighting ability of a largemouth
