Lake Picachos round 2!


Crazyju

Recommended Posts

I Spent 4 ½ days fishing Lake Picachos in Mexico with 3 good friends last week. This was the second January in a row we went and the trip could not have went better. The flights were all on time. Anglers Inn was waiting on us at the airport and we were fishing in less than 2 hours after landing in Mazatlan. The food and service was top notch and our guide Daniel kept us laughing the whole trip. We landed over 1200 fish, with a 7.0, 6.84, 6.34 as big fish. The number of 3.5-4lbers on this lake is unreal. Already planning return trip. Great trip Dan and Peter and Pete the crazy Hungarian. Thank you Daniel for keeping us on fish!

I'm going in less than a month through Ron Speed and I can't wait.  Deja vu, but I'll ask you again (as I did last year).  I'm spending a few days at Picachos and a couple at El Salto.  I know everything will change by then, but what was the hot bait?  What shouldn't I miss?  

 

Thanks.

90 percent of our fish came on a 20.5 dredger or 5" swimbait. Alot more on the dredger. Went through 300 + dingers last year. Didnt even use 20 this time. We did catch some on A-rig, but really didnt throw it enough. If you can, request  Gustavo as your guide.

Thanks for the tips!  I've been reading reports and it sounds like many fish and the bigger ones are being taken deeper.  Last year, I went through about as many senkos/dingers as did you.  I've got them again if I need them (along with piles of watermelon/red lizards), but I'd much rather catch them on moving baits if the bass are willing.

We took 22 dredgers and came back with 2. Had to be hitting bottom or trees to get bit. We asked our guide to stay deep and fish for bigger.

Wow!  I've got a bunch of deep divers, but it sounds like I need to get more...

The lake is around 15ft lower than last year. They are working on the Dam.
