If you guys are interested in the lists of suggested baits I was sent from Pro Bass Adventures just let me know and i'll try to post them up on here for you to see.

They are kept on the down low until you reserve so it's insider info

So f***ing jealous. 7 days at El salto I hope you are bringing big swimbait gear, although I know a ton of the big fish out there are caught conventionally. I would do a lot to be able to go on that trip. Part of me feels like it would get redundant and not feel as significant catching so many giants and the other part of me says screw that it would be the f***ing S**T. I hope to find my way out there within the next couple years
