The Bass of Sinaloa
camara negra 084.jpgcamara negra 081.jpgIt had been 10 years since my last fishing trip to the state of Sinaloa in western Mexico near the coast, I have had tremendous fishing trips down there in that era, I even had my bass boat there for 3 years straight and went as often as work permitted, and then I got married, quitted bass tournament fishing and started a family, but all the time I heard the reports of my fellow colleagues that went to Sinaloa and returned with great tales of massive bass or great numbers, 100 bass a day, etc., The last five years with the hurricane that overflew el Salto and the events at Baccurato and the general sense of insecurity, all fishing came to a halt, every year that went by since then I only speculated and dreamed about the unspoiled waters that no one was hammering, the tranquil bass that should be growing strong and unaware of the sting of iron, the submerged points with deep drops nearby with no boats around and the lone log in a flat with no senkos pounding it. I knew what was brewing; you could almost taste the smell of big bass on your hands.
I was reminded of the insecurity issues in the state of Sinaloa but in reality I could not find anything regarding tourist or fisherman and I could not wait any more so last week I decided to go.
Ohh boy was I right to go, the first day we (2 fisherman) caught 9 bass over 8.8 pounds. Biggest one was 12.6 pounds. The second day we caught 12 bass over 8.8 pounds. Biggest one was 11.3 lbs. and the last half day we caught 2 more over the magic 4 kilo mark of 8.8 pounds. In total 23 bass over 8.8 pounds in 2.5 days. I know that what you really want to see are pictures so here they are.

Some Muy Grandes there!
Thanks for sharing the pics David.
I have not yet had the pleasure of fishing in Sinaloa but, many years ago fished in Sonora at Lake Angostura.The fishing was phenomenal and the views, without equal. At that time, the worst we had to worry about was getting the boat trailer stuck in/on the primitive road to and from the lake and the very good possibility of having a blistered thumb at the end of a day of fishing.
Unfortunately many things have changed in the border States and I can only look at making the return to Angostura with great trepidation.
We are all praying for a return to a more peaceful time.
Sounds like a really great trip. Now the hard questions. Did you feel like there was a potential for danger? General feeling of being safe? Thanks Bruce

Thanks for sharing your fishing story.
I would never have even considered Mexico for Bass and BIG Bass at that.
(I can not view some of your pictures, maybe ask J to fix them) I do not have those magic powers.Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
A Legend in my own mind!
