It's time to dust off that ol' passport and head South to one of Mexico's finest bass fishing lakes.

Mexico bass fishing lakes are special. Why? Simple. Because Mexico is situated near the equator, it has a climate that holds suitable for any types of bass to live. The warm temperatures of the water allows for the bass to grow larger and faster than they can in any other setting and this provides an opportunity for the fishermen to catch a large bass any time of the year. In Mexico, you are given a lot of options when it comes to choosing the lake where you want to fish. To do this, you have to examine your motive first. If you are into the quantity of the bass, choose a newer lake and an older one if you are looking for a picture-perfect 10 pound plus trophy bass. Also, the locals do not go bass fishing as much so the competition is low. Fishing in a serene, unpopulated place gives you the chance to not only enjoy the lake for yourself, but the potential catch as well. Those are the things that make Mexico a special place for bass fishing.

LAKE BACCARAC: Lake Baccarac is another of the 8 great black bass lakes in Mexico, one of the older laakes and it has some of the larger-sized bass.
