Check out these Hogs!
I caught these six bass between 10:00 & 11:30 in the morning while holding my boat on a beautiful off-shore rocky ledge in 21 feet of water that sharply dropped to 80 feet. 

PITCH SEZ:
This spot was a classic "Contact Point" for suspending bass to move to as their first stop on a feeding forage; as it made a sharp 90 degree bend and had several large under water rocks and mesquite trees located on and along the bend.  I could actually watch these bass move up to and on to the ledge with my front sonar unit.  I was jigging my bait straight up and down, consequently keeping it in productive water more of the time.  I had several Bass this size or larger that pulled loose because of poor hook ups, but I quickly modified the hook on the bait I was using with a treble hook and didn't lose anymore fish.


Releasing 6 bass from 10 lbs to a heavy 13 lbs
WOW!

TIP:
Be sure and be on the water in a productive area depending on the time of the year
between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm
or the same times (10 to 2) if night fishing in clear water.
I caught my largest bass (15 pounds 5 ozs) at 1:30 in the afternoon on July 4th several years ago!

Here's a nice 13.1 that I caught at High-Noon in June!

Extreme Engineering unveils some of the most ambitious architectural plans of our times. Some are theoretical; others are in the works. But all of these modern marvels pose challenges that stretch the definition of what's possible. Watch as jaw-dropping computer animation and first-hand accounts from builders, designers and engineers breathe life into the most extreme construction projects ever conceived.

The El Cajon Dam on the Rio Grande de Santiago river located just above Presa MIIpa in western Mexico in the State of Nayarit is the largest current construction project in Latin America. When complete, the dam will stand 186 (613.80 feet) meters high and supply a full two percent of Mexico's electricity needs. The lake is being stocked with Florida Genetics and will offer bass anglers from around the world a bonanza when this huge new lake is opened for sport angling. While the project may be hefty, the dam is on a slim construction schedule. Contractors are using the most rapid construction methods possible, and engineers face a constant battle to keep things moving towards the completion date of February 2007.

The Lake has been stocked with Florida Genetics and should offer another outstanding Mexican bass fishery in a few years. 

Follow cameras as they take you inside the half-assembled belly of this hydroelectric beast for a look at how the brisk work is progressing. In the underground powerhouse cavern, watch as workers install the huge turbines that will power the dam. Above ground, some 40,000 tons of rock is blasted from the hillside to be used in construction of the dam's main water barrier. And along the dam's still unformed spillway, a massive concrete pouring operation is quickly underway with the help of an indispensable, telescopic conveyor belt.

Mexican Lakes Adventures has a DVD available showing this incredible undertaking and major engineering achievement.  Call for pricing and more info and check back for official opening date for Sport Angling!
