Raul! Smallmouth in Mexico?!?

Recommended Posts

Do you know of anyone that's talked about putting smallmouths in the Mexico lakes? Seems to me with the longer growing seasons, natural deep depths of the lakes, and the amount of forgue, they could grow MONSTER smallmouths in Mexico. I was just wondering if there's a reason they haven't done it already, or have they and I just haven't heard about it?

There are very few and priviledged places that have a small population of smallmouths in Mexico, all af them are located in Chihuahua and Durango and are pay-to-fish privately owned lakes. In the rest of the country we 're not going to see that, the question with Mexican waters is that the only service that stocks fish is a government agency called SAGARPA, the reasons why they don 't stock them are quite complicated to explain to someone not familiarized on how things work in this country, but SAGARPA is the only one who can stock fish in the waters legally and all fish stocked has to comply with a series of very complicated paperwork and studies. Besides that, bass of any species is considered to be a nuisance by the biologists of the agency, they call them "the aquaculture of luxury", they produce and stock largemouths because it 's a native, but they do it in limited numbers and very limited aquaculture facilities. It 's a very complicated social issue.

Man that's a bummer! It would be nice to see it, in my opinion.

Do you know how good are the smallmouths in the privately owned waters or is that kept a secret amoungest the owners and the few that get to fish them?
