Drew’s Bulletin: Sept. 1, 2017

This time of year, the weather is hot at our home on Lake Picachos, with a heat index of 118 most days. That is why we are near the Great Lakes in Michigan, and the fishing has only been so-so (unlike the Mexico bass fishing!).

Our home on Lake Picachos in Mexico. Just a little hot this time of year!

It is so neat to hear from our customers regarding their trust in Ron Speed Jr’s Adventures — the most-trusted and best-known international outfitter in the world.

Last night I got a call from one of our fishermen. He was eager to tell me that the old group was back together to come and fish with RSJA. A small portion of the 14-member group fished with us last year twice, … Read the rest

Best bass fishing lake for size and numbersClub El Salto, owned and operated by Ron Speed Jr’s Adventures is the number one lakeside destination for American who expect the best.

This 27,000 acre lake is located in the Sierra Madrid mountain and fed by the Rio Elota River. Just at 1 hour and 15 minutes drive on a 4 lane highway from Mazatlan airport, it is one of 2 destinations for huge bass. This lake is full of Tilapia, and very well managed with Florida-strain bass being stocked since 1985. By the way, the lake record is 18 lbs 6 ozs.

RSJ Adventures is the go-to outfitter on this lake, that may be why we have clients that fish it four times a … Read the rest

Rain has arrived at all lakes, and they are filling fast. Net fishing has started a month early on Lake Picachos.

Safe bass fishing on Lake Picachos in Mexico

From Ron Speed’s Fishing blog: “President of Strike King Lure Co. John Barns and legendary pro angler Denny Brauer with John’s giant Picachos bass!”

Lake Picachos is a new lake known for numbers, but the bass are growing fast. The dam was finished in 2009, and the lake has been managed very well as a catch and release 23,000 acre body of water. You have the Presidio River feeding the lake starting high in the mountains.

The number of 2-5 pound bass being caught is crazy. I feel the lake record of 12 pounds will be broken by a 14 pound fish this season.

It is a lodge on … Read the rest

Fisherman returning to Mexico

I got a call from a new Ron Speeds Jr Adventures customer yesterday, and was he excited about a recent trip with RSJA.   This customer had a group of fisherman with him that had fished Mexico for years, and made multiple trips each year to Mexico. They had quit coming to Mexico because they were concerned about safety issues.  This is a group of seasoned travelers,and were they IMPRESSED with what was offered to them in Mexico.  They were greeted at the airport with a English speaking van driver that is associated with RSJA.  A safe trip to the lake, luggage was unloaded by the fishing lodges people that work for RSJA, and lunch was served within 30 minutes.

Big Bass Numbers on Lake Picachos


Provided by Jon Speed Jr.


Guide Niko holding Ron Jrs 10lb Picachos giant!!!

I have mentioned many times in previous updates over the past year that the best months to catch big bass to go along with all those numbers on Picachos, is March, April, May and June. It certainly appears as though this year will be no different. Just recently we had a group of anglers/customer experience some pretty good big bass numbers at Picachos while maintaining the normal 100 – 200 bass per day, per boat average.

March 22nd
, the following catches were reported…

  • Paul Molnar & Dennis Meschke: 186 bass total. Bigger bass included…9 lbs, 8.8 lbs, 8.6 lbs, 8 lbs, and 6 lbs. Also had 12 more bass in 5

Well, there’s really not much to report thus far as we’ve only had a couple of small groups fish the lake. However, prior to the first small group arriving on November 30th, I sent Terry Oldham and Steve “Big O” Parks down three days early to locate the big bass. Their first two days (Nov 28th/29th) was unbelievable! Terry called and said it was pouring down rain. I told him, “that’s because you have a hurricane (tropical storm by the time it arrived at Comedero) going right over the top of you right now! It didn’t stop Terry and Big O from fishing. Terry informed me that it was going to be easy for … Read the rest

Terry Oldham with 2 lb bass on Lake El Salto

While we haven’t hosted very many groups at El Salto this month, the ones that have fished returned EXTREMELY happy! The numbers are way up this season from previous years. Most of our fishermen in December have been averaging 60 or more bass per day/per boat, with many landing 75 – 100 per day. Some have landed well over 100 bass per boat! There have been a few bigger bass in the 9 and 10 pound range landed thus far. However, the bigger fish have been a little deeper than normal due to the hurricane that came across El Salto and Comedero (more on Comedero below) at … Read the rest

Reduced costs for kids under 18!


Via Ron Speed Jr.:

When I was a kid growing up, I was blessed to have a father that introduced me to fishing at an early age. My father started out coaching high school football in the 60’s…but he also guided on local lakes on the weekends and during the summer months when he wasn’t teaching/coaching. He always applied for open coaching jobs at schools that had a great bass lake nearby and especially if there was a new bass lake opening on the horizon. In 1970, he applied for the open head coaching position at Hemphill H.S. …because Toledo Bend Reservoir had just opened. My dad began guiding out of Six Mile Marina and I was able to experience the best bass fishing … Read the rest

Lake Picachos… ON FIRE!!!

Picachos-Drew-Daniel-3This lake continues to amaze! In one of my recent updates prior to the fishing season beginning, I mentioned that I expect the size of the bass to improve with another year’s growth…and with the early reports coming in, that definitely appears to be the case.

A couple of weeks ago, I received a call from J. W. Peterson who was at Picachos with a big group. J.W. called from his cell phone from the lodge (yes, we have cellular service at our lodge) during lunch to let me know how great the fishing was but particularly the size of the bass! That particular morning, J. W. and his fishing partner had landed 210 bass…THAT MORNING! J.W. informed me that only … Read the rest



Fishing for the mighty peacock bass in the jungle rivers of the Amazon could be the best ever for reasons extending beyond the potential for hooking up with giant peacocks.

With good water levels and the fishing season already underway in the Uatama and Jatapu rivers, the first group on the water was enjoying plenty of action.

After two days of fishing at the first of October, the group had already caught 144 peacocks, including two 15-pounders and one 21 pounder as they began to zero in on the hot spots.

Besides the ongoing action, the first group and those to come will be better equipped in bass boats powered by brand new Yamaha four-stroke outboard engines along with new trolling motors.… Read the rest



guided fishing trips in Mexico and South America

What’s the “catch” about fishing Picachos?

It’s more than just about the catch-rate numbers, as superlative as they may be.

Nowhere else could an angler like Bob McPeak of Illinois catch and release 293 bass in a single day and still call the hype about the new lake “understated.”

In the course of tussles with bass averaging two to four pounds and some bumping six pounds, McPeak made sure to note the bass in the peak of health were especially “mean” in fighting ferocity.


He also noted his actual catches didn’t take into account how often his hits and misses enhanced the degree of fast and furious action.

While McPeak may have set a mark for individual excellence, other anglers fishing as paired teams also topped the 300-per-day pinnacle, according

Lake Comedero will be open for fishing this season!

Via Ron Speed Jr.:

Yes…the beautiful and famous Lake Comedero! In the event you missed our April update, we are reopening fabulous Lake Comedero in December! We believe Comedero to still be the best trophy bass lake in the world today! We had not fished Comedero for the past 6 1/2 years…well, not until conducting “checkout” trips there in November 13′, January 15′ and March 15’….all three checkout trips were OUTSTANDING! Lots of big bass and monsters lost as well! We determined after the two checkout trips earlier this year, that the lake was ready to be fished again! Remember, this is for the trophy bass enthusiasts ONLY! Although we did have some very good numbers during most days of our checkout trips, I still believe the main reason one … Read the rest


Get ready for a great season at Lake El Salto

Via Ron Speed Jr.:

Last season was probably the best we’ve seen the fishing at El Salto in almost 15 years. Some of our clients who have fished the lake every year since it opened in 1990, believe it was THE BEST season ever! Well, the bottom line is that it was absolutely fantastic! The size of the bass landed was incredible and the numbers were above average for most of the season. There are two reasons I believe that we can attribute to the great fishing of last season. One, the lake caught full from last summer’s monsoon rains. Second, the water hyacinth plants (similar to Lily Pads) that were mostly confined to the river the previous year (2013), dnotrifted out of the river and across the main lake … Read the rest


Lake Picachos is looking great for 2015 – 2016 season

Via Ron Speed Jr.:

Last year we were the first to announce and open our beautiful new lodge and operate on the lake.

Beautiful Picachos Bass Lodge

Many of our valuable clients were able to experience the insane numbers of bass with many boats averaging 150 – 200 bass per day! The best catch was 356 bass in one day by two anglers (same boat). We did have many other boats land up to 300+ in a day as well. Also, we had one client break the lake record when Scott Moody landed his giant of 12 lbs, 14 oz! That bass was 90% spawned out and still barely missed weighing 13 lbs!

It was a strange year in terms of weather as we saw constant rain from January until late March (normally it’s … Read the rest

Here we are during the dog days of Summer and I’m starting to get pumped up about the start of our peacock bass fishing season! It is less than two months away and I can’t wait to get back to the Amazon and experience the thrill of battling these incredible fish! I think “beasts” is a better word to describe the amazing peacock bass. As I have stated many times in the past, words cannot describe the tremendous power these fish possess. Pound for pound, there is not a stronger fish that swims (fresh or saltwater)…and I would also guess there’s not a faster fish that swims. Just

Bass Bonanza Opens In Mexico at Lake Picachos!

Every few years seem to bring rumors of a hot new bass lake with awesome action. More often than not the rumors soon prove to be true going back to Lake Guerrero in the early 1970s to the emergence of lakes El Salto and Comedero in more recent years.

How to treat your guides

What a great day having a professional fishing guide take your fish off, tie your lures, net the big fish, and open the cooler to offer you something cold to drink.  These men are working hard to make sure the trip you are on is a experience you will remember.  If you smoke be courteous  when smoking, try to keep the smoke away from your guide , a lot of our guides don’t smoke, but some do.
