Lake Baccarac Oct 2018 Part 5

Recommended Posts

 

   Day 5 was a lot like the previous 4. Swimbaits & ¾ oz underspins ruled the day. Fish were a little more scattered than in previous days. Might have even been a little deeper. But Big Fish Jeff and I would not be deterred bringing 8 score-able bass to the scales. Three over 7lbs, three over 8 lbs, one over 9lbs, and our 4th Double Digit bass of the trip at 10.14 lbs. I’m going to let you decide what to call this type of insanely good big bass fishing – I got nothing.

1: I feel bad for your scale, that poor thing got a pretty good workout LOL

 

2: The scenery is breathtaking

 

3: Are there other anglers on the lake or just you guys?

This trip we timed it right - there was only 2 other anglers at the lodge this week and they came with us.

Been there a few times by ourselves- it's like having your own private club which just happens to be the best bass fishing on the planet.

The lodge is the only one with access to the lake? This is a pretty big lake isn't it?

25 miles long by 5 miles wide in fact but No.

There's one other lodge I know of on the lake.

Rarely see any of their boats though.

But it does happen.

That was a toad. I noticed it was just over 25 inch. The 8 pounder I caught this july was exactly 25 , and she was really solid. That baccarac fish has to have a huge girth !

It certainly did.

Unfortunately we didn't get it.

But I'm willing to bet she was almost as round as she was long. 

Most all the bass there are so obscenely healthy and Thick !

What's the primary baitfish there ?

Shad & tilapia.

There is a commercial fishery on the lake and the tilapia are fed & managed in part by the Mexican government I believe. 

Few nights each month they net them. 

Doesn't seem to affect the bass fishing negatively.

In fact it may be a contributing fact in the basses fast growth rate and crazy big size.

Can't say for sure if those frozen fillets will have the same effect or not.

:huh:

Interesting to note that it seems all of your DD's were caught during the hotter times of the day? That was the case both times I've been as well.

Yes - 

Right before & soon after lunch and again closer to sunset have been when all of my biggest fish have been taken.  But you just never know down there.

Any cast could be The One.  Someone got another 12.12lb fish again yesterday. 

Sick !
