No nets in the daylight hours !

Located in the state of Sinaloa, this 30,000 surface acre lake has produced some monster bass. There have been times in the past when guides guaranteed a double-digit fish during your trip. The glory days have faded into the past, but there is still plenty of excellent fishing at Baccarac. Bass over ten pounds are still common.

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 at full pool. The lake record and the Central American record were set in 1993 by Bruce Knutson with a 19.10 lb largemouth bass.

Until 2004 with the opening of Lake Baccarac Lodge, anglers were inconvenienced by having to spend their evenings and nights in facilities away from the water. Now, anglers are brought directly to the water’s edge overlooking Lake Baccarac and the beautiful surrounding mountain scenery.

Situated 90 miles due east of Los Mochis, Lake Baccarac is popular for having great structure with 300 rocky points, abundant deep coves, and ample main lake humps.

Fishing tips: On Lake Baccarac, deep-diving crankbaits are valued above all others for enticing the lake’s huge bass.  It is best to cast close to the bank or visible cover, reel fast to get the crankbait down to the fish zone, then retrieve with momentary pauses now and then. On good days, you’ll catch a bass every cast using this technique.  Near dawn and dusk, big topwater plugs work on the surface often providing unforgettable action. Spinnerbaits, Lipless rattle baits, large plastic lizards, senko style stickbaits, worms and swimbaits will nab plenty of battlers throughout the day.
