Is "cabin fever" getting you down? You better hurry because youíre getting ready to miss the best fishing action. Pack your best rods, reels and tackle. Donít forget to pack your shorts and T-shirts; it time to head south of the border! Oleí! Once considered the trip of a lifetime is actually very reasonable when you head to Lago Vista Lodge on Lake Guerrero. An "out of this world" experience and closer than you think! A short flight to Harlingen, TX and youíll be pampered for the rest of your stay. Lago Vista Lodge picks you up at the airport baggage claim area and shuttles you directly to the lodge as you journey along the Sierra Madre Mountains towards Lake Guerrero. The short 3 hour trip you will be treated to snacks and beverages, as you view the beautiful scenery of Mexico.

Upon arrival you will be treated like a "king"! Top class rooms and some of the best dining experiences youíll find are waiting for you. The lodge is beautifully set-up with all the conveniences of home. Cabins feature air-conditioned rooms (which you will need Ė remember the shorts?). Big comfortable beds. And all the amenities.

The food is top notch and no youíre not going to get Montezumaís Revenge. Youíll eat like royalty, itís not a place if youíre trying to watch your weight.

Typical Mexican Evening Meal

Itís time to get down to business. You are about to get the best prescription to recover from the addictive virus of "fishing fever". Mucho El Basses, thatís Mexican for Monster Bass. I hope you worked out before you arrived because your arms are going to hurt. Not from casting, but the tug of the over abundance of Mexican Bass. And I mean abundance. And a great opportunity for a double digit bass. Fours, fives, sixes are common and many fish over ten pounds are caught all year long at Lake Guerrero. Itís not just a winter destination itís a year long, line bustiní, good time. Look at these great fish caught during the Texas-Oklahoma Shoot Out in October, 2005.

Cody Bird/Clark Wendlandt Big Fish

Yes, the top touring pros visit Lake Guerrero every year for a head-to-head competition to gain bragging rights, for the top team Texas versus Oklahoma. Names like Cody Bird, Kelly Jordan, Clark Wendlandt, John Sappington, TommyBiffle, Luke Clausen and many more enjoy the superb fishing on Guerrero. Each day this year, Big Bass was over 10 pounds with Cody Birdís 11.59 certified big fish as the top for 2005! Youíll have the same great odds as the top touring pros but with the help of the local guides that put you on the fish. Youíll enjoy two trips a day with refreshments and all meals provided. The evenings are filled with refreshments and beautiful sunsets and reminiscing about the great day of fishing. You can even enjoy a dip in the pool or sit in the hot tub located on the grounds or relax in one of the hammocks. You better relax, because tomorrow morning your arms are going to hurt from fighting fish the day before and youíve only been here one day, with many more to go.

Catch a fish over 12 pounds (IGFA Certified Scales) and join the Lago Vista Lodge Lunker Club. This prestigious award honors those clients that "catch and release" any bass over 12 pounds. You will receive a free replica fish mount of your catch and Lunker Club decal and shirt from Lago Vista.

Youíre Mexican Dream Trip is much closer than you think and there is never a slow time at Lake Guerrero. You can visit them on-line at www.lagovistalodge.com and end those winter blues. Get off the couch and enjoy some "Hot" fishing action. I will be traveling in February to Lago Vista to enjoy another trip and another test of these monster fish. I will be sending nightly updates to Mid America Outdoors of our success, via wireless internet available at the lodge. Whether it's a trip for one or a corporate outing, Lago Vista will make feel at home. Plus they not only offer fishing but shoulder bruising dove and quail hunts.

TIPS: Entry and Exit to Mexico is very painless, with the professionals from Lago Vista. They make everything smooth. If you are going to visit, a passport is highly recommended, with the new regulations required in 2006. They can be expedited in as little as two weeks (with an additional cost) or normal time frame is 6 to 8 weeks. They are valid for 10 years, which allows you many fantastic trips back and forth to Lago Vista.      Passport Info: http://travel.state.gov/passport/passport_1738.html
