El Salto Report – April, 2012:
The fishing over the last 6 weeks has been superb for large numbers of quality bass. Boats have been averaging from 60-150 bass/day. Our customers have been really happy!
It appears that most of our standard El Salto baits are producing well. There were many quality bass taken on topwater with Pop R type baits. The big fish to 12+ pounds came on spinner baits, jigs and swim baits. However the most productive bait was crank baits, including: The Rapala X-Wrap Deep, the Yo-Zuri Jointed FW from the Sashimi series and the Bomber Fat Free Shad.
The really good news is that the overall season has been phenomenal. The numbers we have been experiencing has been the best we have seen on El Salto in the last 7 years. The nets are going to be removed for the season on April 30th, so get ready for the big fish bite in May – July 31st. As you can readily see, this is the time of the year, which produced some of our epic television shows for big fish. I point you to http://www.anglersinn.tv and Dennis Braid’s, “Monster Bass” show and two annual back to back shows by Joe Thomas’, “Reel in the Outdoors” to make my case. There are still some openings during this time frame including Memorial Day, 4th of July and Father’s Day specials. You be the judge!

The 2011-2012 Season started with a bang and should continue in the same vein and better to the end of July! You can see from the photos that our customers seem to be having the time and adventure of their lives on good old Lake El Salto.
The numbers have been outstanding with a fair amount of Big Bass up to 13 pounds thrown in for good measure. Shad & Shaynna Goldston from Texas did very well on crank baits. The DD 10s & 22 and Fat Free Shad were the order of the day.
It seems that our customers were catching numbers and good Largemouth Bass on whatever bait and presentation put them in their particular comfort zone. We have had good results with 8” Zoom Lizards, Senko’s, Rat-L-Traps, Jigs, Big Worms to 12”, Swim Baits and Crank Baits.
Some have experienced excellent topwater action on Pop’R type baits and Buzz Baits.
El Salto is terrific and we believe it will continue to be so until we close July 31. There is still plenty of time left to come down and soak your favorite bait in the world’s #1 Lake for Trophy Florida Strain Large Mouth Bass.
Don’t forget to take advantage of the remaining specials: Memorial Day (May 26-30), Father’s Day (June 20-24), Independence Day and at $1,490 US per angler. Also there is special pricing for Standard Packages for Repeat customers for March, April and May.

January Bass Fishing Report from Anglers Inn on Lake El Salto, Mexico
This season has been very exciting and appears to be improving daily! The fishing has been extraordinary for the sheer numbers of fish caught and overall trip experience! Captain Mike Lackey, owner of the Vagabond, (a long range Sportfisher out of San Diego) had a group of 16 Industry friends who come down every December and May said it best, when asked what baits were the most productive, he said “whatever you want to throw was the best bait because you caught fish on almost everything in your tackle box and a lot of them”! They all agreed that this was one of the best bass fishing trips they had ever experienced. Mike went on to say that a couple boats of his anglers who were hard core crank bait fishermen had a session that produced 30 bass in the 6-8 pound range! (Fat Free Shad in the Citrus and Baby Bass pattern was the ticket).
Mike Ishikawa (who has a fish counter) fished with Bob Fletcher (1st timer) the past President of Sportfishing Association of California (SAC) and he said their best day was 182 bass up to 7 & ½ Pounds. The topwater fishing has been excellent with some anglers reporting up to 50 bass per boat on Pop “R’s, Sammy’s, Rico’s and Yo-Zuri Sashimi series. It seems that if you want topwater action, it is on! The go-to color for soft plastics is Watermelon (red flake) in both 8” Zoom Lizards or 6” Senkos (wacky rigged was the preference). Swim Baits (Storm and Money Minnows) worked well as did Jerk Baits and Rat L Traps. It did not seem to matter what color as long as you threw it and retrieved it! The only thing that matters is to be here and enjoy this fantastic fishing which has been generating 100+ bass/ boat/day. My recommendation is come on down! By the way, everyone loves our new custom Tracker Bass Boats. They are the most fisherman friendly boats in Mexico!
As for the Amazon, the water level is receding, the Peacock Bass are out of the jungle and the bite is on! I will report back via email and short video clips with updates. You will find a link on this report to a recent article written and posted by Stan Fagerstrom, the world famous, “Master Caster”. When you read Stan’s article you will understand my pride and appreciation. All of us at Anglers Inn International say, thank you Stan! Any success we have is the team doing it the “Anglers Inn Way”. We still have some openings for Anglers Inn Amazon. I invite you to come and experience the revolutionary Fly-In, Floating Suites and peacock bass fishing at its best. We fish beyond natural barriers where the river boats can’t go in Government & Indian Reserves.
You should consider adding on a couple of days to your bass fishing trip to experience the in-shore and off-shore, saltwater fishing with Anglers Inn Off shore from our private VIP dock in the Marina Mazatlan. You can count on the same quality boats, equipment and service that are rendered at our bass fishing resorts in Mexico and Anglers Inn Amazon in Brazil. The entire fall season has been prolific from mahi-mahi (also known as dorado) in September, yellowfin tuna, sailfish & stripped marlin in October – December.
The fishing for jack crevalle & rooster fishing has been excellent and we expect it to continue through March. In addition, we have had good results bottom fishing for red snapper, white sea bass (corvina), grouper and trigger fish. Whether you go off-shore for the pelagic species or fish artificial baits for jacks, roosters and groupers we have a plan! Book your saltwater days and we will adjust your trip to maximize your fishing experience. Our bass anglers have enjoyed casting to schools of feeding jacks (5 to 25 pounds) on our light tackle rigs. The fact that you are within swimming distance from the hotels that line the beaches in Mazatlan it makes an action packed and picturesque outing on the Mexican Riviera. Anglers Inn Lake El Salto

November Bass Fishing Report from Anglers Inn on Lake El Salto, Mexico
We had a group from Yo-Zuri design and engineering that was here to test new Sashimi baits. They arrived on Oct 19th. By the 22nd they had caught 2 bass at 10 pounds, 1 fish at 11, 1 at 9 pounds and some 8 pound bass all on film. I saw the photos and they are the real deal. The groups at the lake were averaging 50 to 100 largemouth bass per day with some big fish. One morning George Large, fishing by himself caught 48 bass up to 8 pounds and on their departure day George had a 10 & 11 pounder. These are the same quality fish that we were catching at the end of last season.
In addition, customers at Lake El Salto say the topwater bite is on. They also said they averaged 45-50 fish/angler in the morning session. Hundred fish days are common although the afternoon bite with the exception of the last hour has been slower overall. Our new boats are second to none on El Salto! They’re the most user-friendly fishing boats in Mexico with huge casting decks and side by side seats for riding and your choice of a butt seat or swivel seats while fishing. Thanks to Tracker Marine who went with my new design and built this bass boat. It has really impressed our anglers.
You can expect your Anglers Inn amigos like Herbie, Tony, Sammy, Ramon and Jose to be at the lake to greet you and head chef, Giovanni to prepare your meals!

October Bass Fishing Report from Anglers Inn Lake El Salto
The fishing season has arrived at beautiful Lake El Salto, Mexico. Anglers Inn has already been entertaining beginning and veteran bass anglers from around the world. Anglers are reporting anywhere from 50 to 70 fish per day with plenty of quality fish in the mix. “We have had many anglers report catches of 7 to 9 pound bass,” said Billy Chapman, Jr. “The water levels are a little low for this time of year, which is good for fishing in general. This year is already turning out to be a great one for Anglers Inn.
Jim Huson, Fayetteville, Ark., native threw a wacky-rigged Senko, Watermelon Lizard and Rattle Traps to anchor nearly 70 fish by himself in one day. The Anglers Inn International veteran has had close to 25 trips and wouldn’t change a thing. “I always feel safe with Anglers Inn International,” said Huson. “We are treated great, we catch fish and safety is no concern. That is exactly why I choose Anglers Inn International. They do it like only Billy Chapman, Jr. can. It is perfect. I will keep coming back as long as I can.”
The hot baits for El Salto during the fall to winter months continue to be 8-inch Zoon Lizards, 5-6 inch Senkos, black and blue Skinny Dipper-style swimbaits, crankbaits (Citrus Shad color) and Rat-L-Traps. Not to mention, the topwater bite is starting to turn on . When it comes to technique and Lake El Salto anything goes, and it doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned angler or weekend angler. Everyone is at home with Anglers Inn International. The guides are tuned into the fish and can point anglers in the right direction. Anglers Inn is introducing a fall special for any level angler. The fall specials will save anglers money and they get an extra half-day of fishing included bringing the stay up to 5nights/4 days of fishing.
