LAKE HUITES LODGE
MEXICO BASS FISHING
One of the hottest bass lakes in the world is Lake Huites, located on Mexico's West Coast, outside the city of Los Mochis. This man-made reservoir was initially stocked with Florida strain largemouth bass fingerlings to jump start the fishery. These bass have taken a liking to the mountainous climate, long growing season and an abundant, protein-rich diet of tilapia and shad and are growing at a rate of 1 1/2 to 2 lbs a year.
Lake Huites is located in the Mexican State of Sinaloa and hidden among the mountainous landscape. It is one of the most scenic lakes a bass fisherman will ever set his eyes on. The Mexican Government impounded Lake Huites in 1993, predominantly for agricultural purposes to provide a constant means of irrigation to the fertile fields and farmland. Damming the Chinipas and Fuertes rivers created the long mountain lake. After the dam was finished, a subsequent stocking with a pure strain of Florida Largemouth Bass has yielded one of the best bass fisheries in the world.
