Ready to cross El Salto off that ďmust fishĒ list? The Anglerís Inn fills up
quickly every season and the best way to secure a trip is to use the lodgeís
preferred travel agency, Hook Adventure Travel (just ask for Bear at
800-583-8133) or visit their
Packages vary in price but there are a number of different tailored packages
with varying levels of accommodations. We checked out the entire premises and
there isnít a bad room at the lodge, but there are some actually some very nice
here is excellent, there's no roughing it at all
An example of a package: The Deluxe Package at the Anglers Inn is a great
opportunity to experience the incredible fishing during the second part of
September, 2007. The 1st person pays $2,015.00 for a 4 Night /3 Day fishing
package and the 2nd person will only pay $1,007.50. Included: 4 Night/3 Day
fishing package, deluxe lakeside lodge (based on double occupancy), all meals at
lodge, Tracker boats, 48 hp Yamaha engines, trolling motor and guide, open bar,
soft drinks and purified bottled water, laundry service, ground transportation
to and from lodge and airport. Not included: Airfare to Mazatlan, gratuities for
guides and staff, taxis, meals and drinks during your stay in Mazatlan, fishing
tackle and any other items of a personal nature.
The bar and
dining area serve as home base during your visit
There are slightly cheaper options as well, like the Mobile Suite Package for
$1,765.00 for the first person and $882.50 for the second person, or the Father
and Son package, the best thing to do would be to contact Hook Adventure Travel,
outline your dream fishing vacation and have the experts there set you up. They
certainly took care of us.
Angler's Inn is frequented by many
anglers from overseas, including those from as far away as Japan

Provided at the Resort and included in the package.

hogs? When the Angler's Inn is not serving anglers it also runs "Steel
Thunder Outfitters" offering motorcycle adventures deep into the Sierra
Madres. They even offer "Bass and Bikes" packages
Insect Repellent & Sun Screen:
Keep it on at all times when outdoors as from time to time we have a little
fellow called a "No-See-Um!" We recommend an Avon product called Skin-So-Soft (3
in 1). It has skin moisturizer, #15 sun block, insect repellent and it smells
good! Deep Woods Off and others work as well.
Water & Ice:
Anyone ever tell you not to drink the tapwater in Mexico? Well no worries here,
as purified ice and bottled water is provided in boats and all Resort
releases a lunker back into El Salto
Boats & Equipment:
All anglers will be fishing out of Super 17' V Bottom Tracker Boats with live
wells (some boats), 48hp Yamaha's, trolling motors front and rear, Coast Guard
approved life jackets and First Aid Kits.
Suggested Tipping Guidelines (Paid at Departure):
Average tip for one guide/one boat (2 days of fishing) = $60
Average tip for one guide/one boat (3 days of fishing) = $90
Average tip for lodge tip for personnel = $15/day/angler
El Salto are almost as beautiful as the fish you catch here ....almost
El Salto may be a great lake, and while it is the most well known there are
other lakes that may be worth checking out now or in the near future as well.
El Salto is just one of the regionís angling destinations. Anglerís Inn will
soon have operations at two more of Mexicoís top bass fishing lakes. They are
Lake Mateos and Lake Aguamilpa.
Perhaps in time
these lakes will also garner the same attention and mystique that surrounds El
Salto. We havenít experienced them yet, but we can attest that the allure of El
Salto is well deserved. Why did we have such a good time at El Salto? Sure the
fishing was great, but it was the total experience that will forever cement the
trip as one of my favorite fishing trips of all time. Would I go back?
Absolutely. Would I choose Anglerís Inn as my lodge of choice? Definitely. As
with tackle, you often get what you pay for, and while the Anglerís Inn may not
be the cheapest lodge on the lake it certainly is the nicest of all that we
surveyed, and when it comes to a once in a lifetime trip why take any chances?
