BRING THE LIZARDS; ITíS SPAWNING TIME IN OLD MEXICO
The primary spawn occurs during the full moon of February at both Lakes
El Salto and Mateos with a secondary spawn occurring during the full
moon of March. Of course, not all bass in any given lake spawn at the
same time. The spawning season could last for several months.
Rapala Lures brought a group to Lake Mateos with Sam Anderson of
Minnesota, landing the lunker. Sam created a mega-bait by fashioning a
Trigger X Lizard to a 1/2-ounce white Terminator spinnerbait to tempt
Lake El Salto
Lizards, senkos and similar soft plastic baits dominated the catches
recently at both Lakes El Salto and Mateos. At Lake El Salto, Dave Wahl,
who spends half a year in Denver and half a year in Phoenix, used
nothing but lizards. He brought three packages of 6-inch watermelon
lizards and used them all.
