South of the Border for Sizzlin Bass Fishing Action
Lake Huites Lodge...
For more than two decades, Mexico has been a popular destination for
American bass anglers. Unfortunately, many of the fabled Mexican bass
fisheries no longer live up to their almost legendary reputations,
their fisheries having declined as a result of unforeseen drought
conditions and over-harvesting of the once-plentiful resource. In
the last four years, one lake has emerged that might restore the mystique
of Mexican bass fishing once again. The hottest bass lake in the world
might be Lake Huites, located on Mexico's West Coast. Huites is a
30,000-acre man-made reservoir that has been stocked with Florida
strain largemouth bass. And these bass have taken a liking to a protein-rich
diet of tilapia and shad and are growing at a rapid rate. Anglers
are catching in excess of 75 bass a day and 10 pound plus trophies
are being caught with great
regularity. The local guides have an intimate knowledge of this deep,
clear lake and will take you to prime structures that concentrate
Huites fantastic bass population. Youll stay at Lake Huites
Lodge, considered to be the lodge by which all the lakes other lodges
are judged in terms of comfort, cleanliness and quality of the cuisine.
