Our largest... 9 3/4 pound Mexican Bass

The 'small' 2 to 5 pound fish were no where to be found. Where the week before, everyone was catching 50 fish a day with bunches of those in the 9 to 12 pound range.... the week we were there only the big ones were around. And not that many of them. I caught a total of 6 bass and Chris landed 13.... all week.

You would make 1000 casts a day and be lucky to catch one or two fish.
But you have to admit, that the one fish you did catch was a good one.

I spoke to two guys at the airport who had fished Lake Huites that week and averaged 50 to 60 bass a day... (loosing 20 to 30 that came un buttoned) but their largest was only 7 pounds. Most of their fish ran 2 to 5 pounds. Lake Huites is noted for large numbers of fish, but smaller. Lake Baccarac is the place to go for that 10 pound bass

Even though the fishing was very, very slow, and we didn't catch nearly as many fish as we expected..... Chris is already planning his next trip to Lake Baccarac. Seems he's been bitten by that '10 pound bass bug'. LOL
Aloha,
