Mexican Bass

what is the best tacle and lures to bring to lake guerrero

Lake Guerrero is arguably one of the best Largemouth Bass lakes in the entire world. The weather is usually warm and mild, the bass are big and aggressive, and the local accomodations are World-Class. To really get serious, you’ll need a boat. A canoe will work, but you’d really be better off in a specialty Bass Boat. This will allow you to cover more territory, faster. This lake is heavily populated with Tour Guides and Tournament fishing nuts, so you will need to be able to compete to get your share of the fish. You will need to be Mobile, Agile, and Hostile. Think of yourself as a high-speed predator. Your rod needs to be a Med-Heavy, to Heavy, fast action rod, preferably of Boron or Graphite. Stick with longer rods of around 7′, because you will be glad of the extra leverage when powering a big bruiser out of cover. You can use a spinning rod, but I’d really recommend a spin-casting rod. Your reel needs to be a heavy-duty freshwater spinning, or bait-casting reel. I would hoighly recomend the bait-casting for it’s cranking power, especially my favorite…Ambassaduer. Make sure you get the best reel you can afford for this lake, because your equipment will be challenged. And take spares of everything…rods, reels, line, and lures. As for lures, I’ve always done the best, all-year round, at Lake Guerrero with purple Culprit plastic worms, rigged Texas-Style. But I have seen many people catch bass hand-over-fist using soft plastic jerk-baits, crankbaits, and even topwater lures. I guess it’s mainly personal preference. If you can’t catch bass here, you can’t catch them anywhere. Happy Fishing.
