Ron’s Fishing Tips and Stories: Red Hot El Salto

International Adventures Introduction

I have decided to mix in some Mexico & Brazil bass fishing reports along with the fishing tips & stories. This week we will feature the past couple weeks of fishing at El Salto. Comedero is totally full at 110% which means great fishing from Jan to April. Currently El Salto fishing is scorchingly red hot and reminds me of old days as it’s unbelievable. This week we had anglers catching 9, 10, 11 lb bass on topwater in 5 to 8 ft of water. Here are the client reports:
