Lake Baccarac LodgeTo start off, 19.1 lbs is the official lake record.  Lake Baccarac and Lake Baccarac Lodge are the undisputed kings of big bass in Mexico.  This fabled lake has produced more big bass than any lake in the world.  Fish in excess of 24 lbs. reportedly have been caught by local fishermen.  Lake Baccarac Lodge opened its doors in October of 2004.  Quite a compliment to this hot Mexican lake, clients have caught since the opening of the lodge so many fish over 10 lbs., they cannot be counted.   This is a hot Mexican lake.  Obviously, Baccarac is back and the clients of Lake Baccarac Lodge agree that this is what Mexico bass fishing is all about. 

Situated among the Sierra Madres Mountains on water’s edge in the quaint fishing village of Bacurato and just ten minutes from Bacubirito, Lake Baccarac Lodge awaits.  This beautiful lake is nestled among the forested mountain peaks.  There is a newly-paved 5200 foot runway which provides the luxury of landing ten minutes from the lake.      Clients from around the globe tout Lake Baccarac Lodge as the best big bass lodge in all of Mexico, with an excellent fleet of 18 ft. Crestliners with 60 hp four-stroke motors and upgrades to 22 ft. Skeeters.  Lake Baccarac Lodge offers nothing but the finest from the accommodations to the fishing.

Lake Baccarac Lodge travel itinerary

The majority of the anglers travel to our lodge via private plane to Bacubirito , which is ten minutes from the lodge.  We have several private air options.  The private air trips are a package price – the fishing trip and the air, but the air portion is NONREFUNDABLE and NONTRANSFERABLE. 

Call our office for pricing: 1-888-744-8867

Clients may also fly commercially into Los Mochis, Mexico via many different cities and utilizing different airlines.  It is a three-hour trip from Los Mochis to the lodge, one way.  The most common connecting cities are Tucson, Phoenix and Mexico City and the airline servicing Los Mochis is AeroMexico.   Most clients arriving commercial air arrive between six and seven in the evening and depart between eight and ten in the morning and that is the schedule our transportation schedule typically follows.    We are now picking up in Culiacan and arranging transfers from Mazatlan. 

Additional transportation fees may apply from Mazatlan, depending on group size and date.

Lake Baccarac Lodge cancellation policies

All fishing trips are transferable to another date/another angler, but they are nonrefundable, no exceptions.  We suggest you purchase trip insurance with the trip insurance provider of your choice.  Travelex and Travel Guard are two companies to consider.  This will cover flight delays, lost luggage, medical emergencies, etc.  There is an additional pickup fee for lost luggage or clients who arrive to the lodge later than scheduled, due to missing a commercial flight OR a private flight. We will pick up clients who have missed their flights at a later time/the next day IF our transportation schedule permits.  If you are traveling to the lodge on a private flight, the private flight portion of your trip is NONREFUNDABLE and NONTRANSFERABLE to another date, no exceptions.  

Reel Mexican Adventures is not responsible for any part of the trip that might be missed because of cancellations or delays of commercial or private airlines.   If you have to cancel your entire trip, you need to do so as soon as you are aware that you need to cancel it, and you will be given a credit for any portion not used depending on when you cancel it and you will have a period of time to complete it, again, depending on when you cancel it.   Any trip cancelled less than 15 days prior to departure is subject to complete forfeiture.  Upon booking a trip, our complete cancellation policy will be sent to you.   

Weather at Lake Baccarac

The evening and morning hours are cool because of the cool, crisp mountain air of the Sierra Madre Mountains. As the day progresses, it typically heats up to between 84 and 90 degrees. Occasional showers do occur, so a rain-suit is a must.
