Lake Baccarac Trophy Fish Policy
It is the lodge's policy for no fish to be kept under 8 pounds and only one fish per person per day. Your big fish will be frozen and wrapped, if you request, but we encourage you to use fiberglass replicas. They last longer and you can't tell the difference. You will need your own ice chest if you will take your fish home.
