The first pic is the 7.8lb and the 2nd one is the 8.6lb.
It was an unreal experience. I'm telling you it seemed that all the fish even the ones that were 1lb were strong. I wore out my reel's drag from catching these fish. This was my first time fishing for bass in Mexico and it is definitely something that all bass anglers should do at least once. There's nothing like it.fishkid said::shock: :shock: :shock: those are some amzing sized bass! huge congrats! must have been a thrill catching them!
I did. I brought my own rods. Unfortunately, one of my rods was damaged. I don't know if I stepped on it by accident or if it was mishandled by the people handling the rods to/from the boat to lodge. It makes it that much better fishing with your own gear that's for sure. I hate renting or borrowing others' rods. For the trip I'd say 3 rods/reel combos was the right number. You can get by with 2 but sometimes you want to change to a topwater or t-rig or to spinnerbait in an instant.Fishthoughts said:Dude! Those are lunkers! Congratulations on some very nice fish.
I've seen several fishing show episodes featuring Mexican lakes and have been dying to try them out. Did you bring your own rods?
Again, congrats on a great trip and thanks for reporting.
