El Salto Bass Fishing Report
Lake El Salto, Mexico
This season has been very exciting and appears to be improving daily! The fishing has been extraordinary for the sheer numbers of fish caught and overall trip experience! Captain Mike Lackey, owner of the Vagabond, (a long range Sportfisher out of San Diego) had a group of 16 Industry friends who come down every December and May said it best, when asked what baits were the most productive, he said "whatever you want to throw was the best bait because you caught fish on almost everything in your tackle box and a lot of them"! They all agreed that this was one of the best bass fishing trips they had ever experienced. Mike went on to say that a couple boats of his anglers who were hard core crank bait fishermen had a session that produced 30 bass in the 6-8 pound range! (Fat Free Shad in the Citrus and Baby Bass pattern was the ticket).
Mike Ishikawa (who has a fish counter) fished with Bob Fletcher (1st timer) the past President of Sportfishing Association of California (SAC) and he said their best day was 182 bass up to 7 & ½ Pounds. The topwater fishing has been excellent with some anglers reporting up to 50 bass per boat on Pop "R's, Sammy's, Rico's and Yo-Zuri Sashimi series. It seems that if you want topwater action, it is on! The go-to color for soft plastics is Watermelon (red flake) in both 8" Zoom Lizards or 6" Senkos (wacky rigged was the preference). Swim Baits (Storm and Money Minnows) worked well as did Jerk Baits and Rat L Traps. It did not seem to matter what color as long as you threw it and retrieved it! The only thing that matters is to be here and enjoy this fantastic fishing which has been generating 100+ bass/ boat/day. My recommendation is come on down! By the way, everyone loves our new custom Tracker Bass Boats. They are the most fisherman friendly boats in Mexico!
You should consider adding on a couple of days to your bass fishing trip to experience the in-shore and off-shore, saltwater fishing with Anglers Inn Off shore from our private VIP dock in the Marina Mazatlan. You can count on the same quality boats, equipment and service that are rendered at our bass fishing resorts in Mexico and Anglers Inn Amazon in Brazil. The entire fall season has been prolific from mahi-mahi (also known as dorado) in September, yellowfin tuna, sailfish & stripped marlin in October – December. The fishing for jack crevalle & rooster fishing has been excellent and we expect it to continue through March. In addition, we have had good results bottom fishing for red snapper, white sea bass (corvina), grouper and trigger fish.
Whether you go off-shore for the pelagic species or fish artificial baits for jacks, roosters and groupers we have a plan! Book your saltwater days and we will adjust your trip to maximize your fishing experience. Our bass anglers have enjoyed casting to schools of feeding jacks (5 to 25 pounds) on our light tackle rigs. The fact that you are within swimming distance from the hotels that line the beaches in Mazatlan it makes an action packed and picturesque outing on the Mexican Riviera.
As for the Amazon, the water level is receding, the Peacock Bass are out of the jungle and the bite is on! I will report back via email and short video clips with updates. You will find a link on this report to a recent article written and posted by Stan Fagerstrom, the world famous, "Master Caster". When you read Stan's article you will understand my pride and appreciation. All of us at Anglers Inn International say, thank you Stan! Any success we have is the team doing it the "Anglers Inn Way". We still have some openings for Anglers Inn Amazon. I invite you to come and experience the revolutionary Fly-In, Floating Suites and peacock bass fishing at its best. We fish beyond natural barriers where the river boats can't go in Government & Indian Reserves.
The buzz is simple, the fishing is on and it is time to book your preferred dates.
