Lake Baccarac Lodge - Mexico
Largemouth Bass Fishing
Lake Baccarac is located in Bacurato, a quaint fishing village in the Sierra Madres. The lake is 25-miles long, five miles wide, and 30,000 acres at full pool. Bruce Knutson caught a 19.10 pound largemouth bass here, setting the Central American record in 1993. Lake Baccarac is one of the best lakes in the world for jumbo largemouth bass.
Lake Baccarac Largemouth Bass
Lake Baccarac was stocked in 1978 with Florida strain largemouth bass and is the number one lake in Mexico for ten-pound-plus bass.
Terry Hollan built and opened Baccarac Lodge in 2004.
Each season has produced phenomenal fish: 14-pound, 15-pound, and so many largemouth over 10 pounds, that over the years, they've lost count. Good numbers of 5 to 7-pound bass are caught daily. The official Lake record is a 19.1-pounder.
The Lodge is managed by renowned angler and guide, Narlin Salazar. Narlin and his staff make sure that your stay is topnotch. In 2009, Narlin was recognized by the Outdoor Channel has one of Mexico’s best managers.
