Three techniques for bass fishing Mexico

Bass fishing in Mexico is an amazing experience that many anglers only dream about because it has everything you could ask for in a fishing trip. If you would truly like to take part in some of the best fishing you’ve had the opportunity to enjoy, you can make this dream a reality. All you need to do is plan a fishing trip to Mexico. It has so much to offer the serious angler who wants to try their hand at reeling in the bass in an extraordinary environment. The fishing is considered to be so good that anglers travel from all over the globe just to fish in Mexico.

Mexico is sometimes referred to as the paradise for bass fishermen. This is due to the excellent fishing opportunities it has to offer. It’s also the reason why you’ll need to book your fishing trip in advance if you plan to visit one of the most popular areas. You don’t want to miss out on a great fishing trip because you showed up without making reservations and you couldn’t stay in the area you planned to fish.

September to June is considered to be the best time to visit but other times of the year can also be productive and enjoyable. The Mexican climate is suited for fishing all year long so you can plan a trip anytime that’s convenient for you.

Bass Fishing Techniques to Use in Mexico

When planning your bass fishing trip to Mexico you need to decide which techniques to use. There are several to choose from that you can use depending on what type of bass you’re seeking out and of course, on which ones you prefer using. Even though it’s up to you to decide which one to use there are some that have proven to be very productive when fishing in the Mexican environment. These are discussed below.

Three techniques for bass fishing in Mexico:
1. Bass fishing in deep holes, rock beds and similar underwater structures usually yield excellent results.

These are some of the areas that many anglers overlook because they can be difficult to reach. Still, there will be plenty of bass in these areas just waiting for you to drop your bait. Use a Carolina Rig, heavy weights and a swivel leader. Cast into these areas and then use a slow twitching motion when reeling the line back in.
2. Many of the lakes have trees nearby that can interfere with your casting technique. For this reason, it’s important to practice your casting and learn how to get the bait in the strike zone without getting tangled up. This will save you valuable time when fishing in Mexico.
3. Fish all levels of the water. Start with the shallow water that is about three feet deep and above. If you don’t get any action in this area, go deeper. The water in the three to eight foot range is considered medium depth and you’ll fish it next. If you still haven’t gotten bites, start fishing in the deep water that is considered eight feet to the bottom. When you do get a bite in one of these depths, continue fishing that area until you no longer get bites and then start searching for a new depth to fish.

The lakes and rivers in Mexico offer more than just excellent fishing, it’s also some of the most beautiful scenery you’ll ever have the pleasure of seeing. When you combine the clear water found in some of these lakes with the mountains and other stunning scenery, Mexico can be breath-taking.

Where to Fish in Mexico

When visiting Mexico, you need to know where to start your fishing adventure. Of course, there are many areas that have bass but some are well-known for being more productive than others. Each lake has its own unique qualities that attract different types of anglers. This is why it’s a good idea to learn a little about the lake in the area where you plan to fish before you go.

It will help you determine which one would provide the bass fishing experience you’re hoping to have. For example, the older lakes have bigger bass but they are not as plentiful as what you’ll find in some of the younger lakes. On the other hand, the young lakes have more bass so you’ll get more bites and have more chances to reel in large numbers of fish each fishing trip. So it all depends on whether or not you want to reel in lots of bass or the biggest ones you can catch.

If you’re searching for the ultimate bass fishing experience, consider planning your trip near one of the lakes listed below and you’ll surely be happy with the results.

Some of the best bass fishing lakes found in Mexico are listed here:
* Lake Comedero
* Lake Baccarac
* Lake Guerrero
* Lake Huites
* Lake El Salto
* Lake Agua Milpa

It’s not at all uncommon to find bass weighing up to ten or fifteen pounds in any one of these lakes on any given fishing trip. This is one of the reasons why anglers travel to Mexico just for the bass fishing experience. It’s sure to be something that you’ll always remember. You’ll most likely be making plans to return as soon as possible to take advantage of the great bass fishing opportunities Mexico has to offer.
