Check out these
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
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
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
I caught my largest bass (15 pounds 5 ozs) at 1:30 in
the afternoon on July 4th several years ago!

LAKE CERRO PRIETO
Lake Cerro Prieto is a small, older lake that covers
approximately 5,000 acres of mostly flat, rocky countryside in
the state of Nuevo Leon. The lake is 11 miles east of the
town of Linares on blacktop road. There is a dirt launch
ramp with adjacent area to park campers and motor homes, but no electricity.
There are several small Motels and Hotels in the town of Linares that cater
to bass anglers. The lake was stocked with Florida Genetics
in 1982 and there have been good numbers of double digit bass
caught over the past years. This lake is well worth
exploring for a few days. Under the right conditions, it
has produced excellent results. The Monterrey Bass Clubs
hold occasional tournaments on the lake, but it generally has very
little fishing pressure.
