Mexico's Lake El Salto Is A Bass Fishing Heaven - Follow These Tips To Your Next Double Digit Catch!
By Dean Caporella
In the bass fishing world, a trip to Mexico is a must and if you want to almost guarantee yourself a certain catch, then Lake El Salto should be your first port of call. Why? Well, Lake El Salto has developed a reputation as just about the best bass fishing lake in the world, and for good reason!
Bass was introduced to El Salto over two decades ago and the result, a lake full of fish ready to be caught! Apart from being one of the most picturesque locations you'll come across, Lake El Salto, situated within close proximity to Mazatlan and close to the Sierra Madre mountain range, has an ideal temperature range and all the right ingredients for bass to flourish. And flourish they have!
El Salto's Monsters
There's an old saying... size matters and El Salto's reputation for producing monster bass is one good reason why anglers flock there in droves across the border from the US. There is a strong emphasis on trophy fishing; being able to tell your buddies you "snagged" the big one and better still, producing the photo proof of your catch.
The season at El Salto runs for approximately nine months. It officially "casts off" on October 1st. and runs right through until the end of June. This period produces a great number of visiting anglers all after their trophy catch. Experts will tell you the best time to land a monster is following the spawning season which usually takes place from December through until March. The "fish tale" giants have usually been landed following the big spawn from April through until season close at June's end.
El Salto Tours
There is a term used in bass fishing which is simply double digit. It's music to the ears of most serious anglers because landing a double digit bass will land you short term fame and bragging rights. Best of all, you'll forever have the licence to "spin the yarn" about the time you hooked a double digit bass in Mexico, provided you've kept the photo, of course!
Visitors are always welcome at Lake El Salto and there are several fishing tour companies which provide either a sole El Sato experience or include it as part of a fishing itinerary. As an example, a two day package would set you back about $500 and the value you receive is excellent. All meals, transport to the lake and back to your accomodation which is also usually included in the price, drinks and boat guides who are conversant in both english and spanish and not to mention your fishing license. That's a pretty good deal in anyone's language.
Lake El Salto is a bass fishing heaven. In fact, in 2002, a fish nearing 20 pounds was landed on the lake. It's reputation as a breeding ground for monsters continues to grow.
