Default Finally caught one over 10 lbs.

I finally caught a bass over 10 lbs. She was a Mexican beauty from Lake Comedero. 10 lbs 8 oz to be exact. I caught about 40 bass over 6 lbs with a 8 lbs 2 oz the day before. No better feeling than hearing the guide say grande, grande I get the net. If you want to catch lots of big bass Lake Comedero is the place to go. The only bad thing about it are the no-see-ums that are a million times worse than mosquitoes when they bite you.

Nice fish bud. It's fun fighting them that big. I've been lucky enough to land to 13 plus in my 31 years. Don't know if I'll ever surpass that 13lb mark but will def keep on trying.

OP, can I ask how much a trip like this costs? And what's a good number of people to take for a group trip?

Wait, one 13-pound fish or thirteen 10-pound fish? Either way that's impressive!

Awesome fish and congratulations.

I have fished Mexico several times but it has been quite a few years. I have the hankering to go back. Can you give me a little information about the outfitter you used and any thoughts you may have?

Congrats!!! Biggest one I ever put in the boat was a shade under 5 and I thought I had a beast on there. Right up until the next cast. Something grabbed that 12" motor-oil worm I was dragging and just left with it. Got it to the boat and it was a 17lb yellow cat. Still the best fight I ever had while chasing largemouth.

Nice! My biggest, if memory serves me correctly, is 7lbs 6oz. It was a really nice dish. I'd fall off the boat of I got one over 10 lbs. Some dudes seem like they catch 'Emma that big on a regular basis. I must be doing something wrong.

My personal best is 8 lb 4 oz. Best recent was about this time last year off my kayak 7 lb 1 oz. I've been trying to convince my buddies for the last few years to head to Mexico. I'm hoping to make it down there sooner rather than later.
