Giant Bass With No Graphs - Bass Fishing In A New Country!

Today we're exploring a brand new lake! We caught a flight down to Lake Baccarac in Sinaloa, Mexico. The lake is famous for big bass but virtually everyone fishes with a guide. We got the chance to break the lake down ourselves without any outside help... the only catch is the electronics on the boat didn't work! Come along as we explore Mexico and catch a bunch of big bass!

The key to any new fishery is to cover water, targeting aggressive fish. If you can find an aggressive bite the learning curve becomes much shorter. Questions about what stage the fish are in, what they're eating, and what sort of structure they're using are answered quickly if you're getting consistent bites. We used a combination of baits with a large presence (swimbaits and topwater) and fast moving baits (squarebills and A-rigs) to catch fish right away.

Below is a break down of the baits we used in the video, shown in order of appearance. Lake Baccarac is an amazing lake and we are very grateful to Pro Bass Adventures - Lake Baccarac for lending us a bass boat to go explore the lake on our own.
