Can you fill in some details as to how towing your boat down went? Anything special needed other then a spanish speaking partner? You know special licensing, equipment, how were the roads etc?Plan on $1500-2000 with airfare. Some better deals in the summer & Sept. I have used guide services several times and towed my boat down several times.
+1 For Doug :bow:Good day all,
I'm sure I'll be accused of SPAMming the board, etc., but since you asked....
We offer all inclusive packages at El Salto & Baccarac, with new lakeside lodges, ground transpo from airport, unlimited drinks, great food, great service, great guides, etc.
We fish from Ranger boats at Salto, and the new lakeside lodge was well recieved by our customers last season. Talk to AZBZ member Bobby A. (Rajuncajun91) for reference. He's been down a couple of times....see his posts.
Check out the website, or call/email anytime. I'll be happy to provide detailed, and most importantly HONEST, info and pictures of our operations at Salto & Baccarac. We are running some great incentive deals starting this Fall....call or email for details.

Thank you, I wish I wasn't so nervous about going down there. Just don't like the idea of not being able to speak fluent spanish and have my boat and equipment confiscated for some dump reason.Kingfish has a good operation. As for towing - it's about 17 hours on good roads but you will have to pay about $80 each way for tolls. You need to stop at the Mexico entry port and get a federal permit for your vehicle and an import permit for you boat. Takes about 1/2 hour. Both need titles and Mexican insurance in the your name. NO borrowed boats. I have gone alone a couple of times and don't speak Spanish. I do prepare some printed information in Spanish that explains where I am going, etc. Expect some checkpoints manned by Federal police that can be a bit intimidating when you see their machine guns. Just don't take any firearms and/or ammunition. VERY bad idea!
El Salto is paved to the lake, hotels are close, and there is a $5 per day per fisherman that is collected by the game warden. Baccarac is about 45 min on gravel roads, hotels over an hour away, and $20 a day fee collected by the tour operators crew.
You still got arturo working for you ? He used to work for champmans down at aqua milpa before he went to baccarac to work for youGood day all,
Thanks for the kind words and recommendations. I appreciate it... and I insure that if you come down and fish with us, you will have a blast, be treated like royalty, fed and "watered" till you say "no mas"....and you'll most likely have the best bass fishing experience of your life..and a good shot at your PB. The lakes are getting good rain and are in excellent biological health. This season should be fantastic...for numbers and action on 4-8 lb fish, and plenty of 9 to 12 lb toads. We had two fish over 14 lbs in June before we closed for the Summer. We will open back up in October...after the monsoon rains and heat subside.
O.K., I've had a few inquiries and guys looking for a "stimulus pkg." deal at El Salto....so at the risk of being labled a spammer...here you go, the AZ Bass Zone Special........
All inclusive 5 night / 4 day...round trip ground transpo from Mazatlan (MZT) airport or hotel, 5 nights accommodations, excellent meals, unlimited drinks (beer, margaritas, soft drinks, bottled water, coffee, juices, etc.), maid service, guided fishing from a Ranger boat, fishing license, lake access fee, etc. Everything except gratuities....$1595 pp
This is an extra night's accommodations and extra day of fishing FREE.
I'll offer this special for the entire 2009/2010 season (October-July)
OR.....if you can't do a 5N/4D trip, we'll do the same all inclusive trip for 4 nights & 3 full days fishing for $1395...from Oct. thru Dec. only.
Get a group of 10 together and we'll sweeten the deal.
U.S. Airways has daily 2 hr non-stop flights from PHX to Mazatlan (MZT), and they are very reasonable lately. You need a passport.
Give me a call or email anytime for more details and info. I'm in Tempe.
