Mexico Bass Fishing Trip Planning Q & A with MLF Commissioner Don Rucks

The U.S. is dotted with epic bass fishing destinations, but sometimes the grass is greener across the border; if bass fishing Mexico is on your bucket list, heed the advice from a man who has been there, done that, and continues to go back

In the world of bass fishing, there may be no better major-league destination on the planet than the red-hot action found south of the Rio Grande River in old Mexico.


Starting many years ago with the fish-every-cast action found on storied Lake Guerrero, bass catching opportunities in Mexico have steadily expanded to include a number of fabled lakes offering mind-boggling numbers, double-digit weights, stunningly gorgeous waters, and the warm, delicious food and hospitality found south of the border.

Long a fan of the tremendous bass-catching action found in Mexico, Major League Fishing commissioner Don Rucks recently toured the region again and found the fishing to be as spectacular as ever.
