Baccarac Fishing Report

1 post in this topic

From Jim Farrow:

Dave Seitenbach, Randy Wedel, Dean Akin, and Jim Farrow, caught 477 fish in 4 days! Each of us caught our personal best on the trip, w/ 3 fish over 10, 2 over 9, 13 over 8, and 19 over 7, and countless others in the 5-6# range. In fact, one of our group caught so many fish that he was, "en fuego", as he described it. The black jig w/ Senko trailer was the big fish bait, although my biggest fish and several others over 8 were caught on a rattletrap. The food was great, the service was excellent, and the guides, Juan and Cluadio, were good as they come. Needless to say, we had a blast, and can't wait to come back to Baccarac.

From Charles Townsend

Our group fished June 26-29th at Lake Baccarac Lodge and enjoyed another great trip. We did not catch as many fish as last time, but the big fish bite was on. All 4 of us caught our largest bass! Big fish were as follows: 10-14, 10-10, 10-7, and a 10-3. A number of 9 lb fish were caught, along with lots of 6-8 lb fish. We rarely caught a fish under 4 lbs! Best baits were 1 oz jigs, swimbaits, and some ratl-traps and crankbaits. Food and hospitality were great as always. The last day a MAJOR thunderstorm rolled into the area and we were forced off the lake early - looks like the rainy season has begun. We will be back!!

The last group of the season departed July 5th and reported an excellent big fish bite. The BassChamp boys Chad Potts, Jeff Massey and others landed fish over 12 pounds. Gil Wright made the last trip of the season and also managed a fish over 10 pounds. Others also reported trophies. The Lodge is closed until Sept 22nd other than a couple small groups coming over the next 6 weeks.

    • The name of the lake is long. It's between hawick and new London off hwy 23. East of Willmar. It's pretty clear water so your best bet  with eyes is early or late. Actually catch more eyes by accident fishin panfish.
    •   Not sure how the wife will like it, but it's kind of fun roughing it.  I know the area is pretty good for Bear's and Wolves!  And we do get a few Deer once in a while. The nice thing about being so far in, is the bait piles you can make! 
    •   With the 40 acres? Both hopefully. We still grouse hunt and deer hunt up there occasionally. There is a small cabin there but there is not a well or electricity. It is very primitive, but that's kind of what I like about it.
    • There are some pretty gnarly long roads and trails up in that area. I use to do some of them alone on 4 wheeler but not anymore. It's always nice to have a buddy with a wince along!  What are you guys thinking on doing with it hunting-camping?
    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
