Lake Huites, MexicoFor 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. populations.

Lake Huites LodgeIn 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 beingcaught 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. You'll stay in grand comfort 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.
