Lake Baccarac was stocked in 1978 with Florida strain largemouth bass. The lake is 25 miles long and five miles wide and is 30,000 acres when full. The lake record and the Central American record were set in 1993 by Bruce Knutson with a 19.10 lb. bass. There have been reports of bass in excess of 24 lbs that have been caught by local fisherman. Fish over 10 lbs. are not uncommon. Mexico bass fishing is currently at its finest and especially at Lake Baccarac!
The new Lodge overlooks Lake Baccarac and the beautiful surrounding mountain scenery. Rene and his staff are there to ensure your stay is topnotch – from the air conditioned spacious rooms to the excellent meals prepared by the cooking staff to the housekeeping staff who will pamper you; even washing your clothing daily. From the moment you arrive in Mexico until you leave, the staff is there to meet your every need and to make sure your stay is a memorable one.
The lodge has brand new 18 foot Crestliner boats manned by Lake Baccarac’s most famous guides (Sixto, Miguel (Chino), Eddie, Pedro, Huil, Felipe, Juan, Oscar just to name a few!) who have an intimate knowledge of the lake. Most have twenty years of experience on the lake. They await you each morning to help you realize every angler’s dream – that mammoth bass on your line. All new for the 2008/2009 season Manual Salazar Mexico’s number one guide will be guiding at Lake Baccarac Lodge.
Lake Baccarac Lodge was built for one reason – to give anglers another opportunity while bass fishing in Mexico to stay in elegant accommodations while enjoying the world’s best bass fishing. Whether there are two of you, twenty of you, or your are pulling your boat, we await your arrival so that we may give you the best bass fishing experience you have ever had.
