We headed to Mexico’s Lake Baccarac to find out if Mexico fishing is as good as they say. From the flight to the meals to the fishing, it was top notch all the way! If you’ve ever wondered if bass fishing in Mexico is worth the trip, check this out… When we travel we pride ourselves on fishing without outside help, approaching lakes the same way we do at home. It took a bit of work but we were able to get out on the water unguided and truly explore it for ourselves. We were amazed by the quality and quantity of fish, as well as the incredible amount of Tilapia and shad in the lake. The fishery is as healthy as any we have in the states. We felt safe the entire time, despite fishing alone in a foreign country. Below is a breakdown of the baits and tackle we were using, as well as a link to the lodge in case you want to try your hand at catching a big bass in Mexico. One of our favorite parts of the trip is that you didn’t have to use a specific bait to catch fish. We brought a variety of confidence baits and caught fish on nearly all of them! To answer the question: Yes, fishing in Mexico is worth it! We had an amazing time and will definitely do it again!
