Lake Picachos Continues To Amaze!

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 about a dozen of those bass weighed less than 2 pounds…and the majority were extremely fat 3 and 4 pounders! They also had bass in the 6, 7 and 8 pound category!

Picachos-Drew-Daniel-4We’ve hosted 4 big groups this month (Dec) at Picachos and almost every boat has landed a minimum of 100 bass per day and the majority have averaged 150 – 200 bass per boat, per day. Some boats have exceeded 300 bass in a day! Bass fishing really doesn’t get any better than this, folks!

Roger-Sessions-Picachos-dec-2015Then last week I received a call from Roger Sessions who had just returned from Picachos. Roger had just completed his 4th trip to Picachos in the past two years and rated this recent trip “THE BEST ONE YET!”…Roger landed two bass in excess of 9 pounds! He and his partner also averaged over 175 bass per day…and get this, “Ron, we had two days of solid cloud cover and caught most of those bass on TOPWATER”…yes, folks…TOPWATER!
