arrived early, just as the sun was coming up over the mountains that
cradle Lake Huites Lodge. The view was breath taking.
Although, I had been to Mexico before, this was
my first trip to Lake
I am going back. The point of the trip was to experience the awesome
fishing on Mexico's hottest bass lake. Not only did we get a taste
of the big and numerous bass that call Lake Huites home, we were
treated to a cultural experience. Great food, unbelievable service,
comfortable accommodations and wonderful hospit ality.
Lake Huites Lodge is owned by Reel Mexican
Adventures. Owners Terry
Hollan and Renee Salazar Robles run this full service operation.
Transportation from the airport to the lodge, wonderful meals, room
service, fully air conditioned rooms with tile floors and twenty
four hour security. The lodge also has a back up power generator,
and a water purification system.
When I arrived, I stepped out of the truck to a bunch of smiling
faces. These faces not only were comprised of the staff that waits
on you hand and foot, but of the departing fisherman. One gentleman
from Kentucky said, " Boys, its incredible. Enjoy yourself,
we sure did" Your luggage is unloaded and brought to your room.
Now its time to put your fishing gear together. Make no mistake about
it, Lake Huites Lodge wants you to hook those big bass and they waste
no time getting you to one of the 12 rigged Carolina skiff boats.
These 18 foot boats are a great set up for you, partner, all your
gear and your guide. There is also an upgrade package that includes
fully rigged Skeeter bass boats.
The following morning I was awaken by a knock on the door. I was
exhausted from the previous days fishing. So I was surprised to see
one of the young lady employees standing outside my door with hot
coffee. Yes, I am on vacation! It beats an alarm clock. That is your
cue to move to the dinning area where breakfast is served. From breakfast
to dinner, each meal was expertly prepared. You looked forward to
fishing and eating! Next, and I loved this part, you walked back
to your room where your fishing equipment was picked up and loaded
in the truck for you. You are then driven down the mountain to meet
your guide. Your equipment is unloaded and carried to the boat for
you. I was greeted with a smile from Manuel Salazar Robles, my guide
for the day. You fish from 6:00 am to 12:00 noon. Then you are brought
back for lunch. You are driven a short distance up the mountain,
back to the lodge. The door is opened for you and you are greeted
at the gate by smiling faces with fresh Margaritas,(or soft drink
if you prefer) and everyone goes to sit on the shaded patio that
over looks beautiful Lake Huites. Fishing stories are exchange, and
buddies rib one another on who had the biggest bass. Lunch is served.
Then, and here is the part I liked, its siesta time.
You awake about 2:00pm and head back down to the lake. You fish
till dark and are brought back for dinner. All your gear is brought
back to your room and you return to the dinning area for a fantastic
dinner. The stars really shine on a clear night up in those mountains.
Lake Huites Lodge has this large open tiled patio that over looks
the lake. You can see perfectly as the sun sets, and seems to tuck
itself away, just for the night. The bright orange and fiery red
colors make for awesome pictures. They seem to reflect the high energy
from the day.
The fishing at Lake Huites Lodge was incredible. I get to fish quite
a bit. I am here to tell you, after 4 days, I was sore! We averaged
50 fish a day per person in the boat. That was not as good as it
gets. The lake was low and the bass were in a post spawn mode so
the fishing, I was told, was a little slow. I never noticed! A hundred
fish a day when action is rockin, is common. Fish around 10 pounds
where caught while I was there. Heart breaker stories about bigger
ones were heard nightly. The lake record bass stands at around 15
pounds. The lake is only 8 years old. WOW! My guide Manuel was great
and really knew the lake. Every time you caught a fish, the guide
takes it off and sets you back up to make another cast. You don't
even have to take your own fish off.
The success of Lake Huites Lodge can be attributed to the financial
and administrative support of its partners and the definite skill
and care of the people operating this unique resort. This place is
incredible. When you plan a trip to Lake Huites, book it early. It
is now the most popular resort on the lake. It is second to none
on all levels. It is not only a vacation, but a first class adventure
with all the amenities.
