Bass fishing on another level

Our dream is to make La Perla Ranch the best bass fishing destination in the country.  We are well on our way to making that dream a reality and are to a point where we can offer a limited number of trips to the public.

We run a strict catch and release program at La Perla other than small bass culling for population control.  We consistently see 10-pound largemouth bass pulled out of both the La Perla and Waterworld Lakes.  On February 19, 2015 Blair Schwarz was on a final cast of the day before heading into camp and nailed the ranch record 14:3 pounder seen in the photos on this page.  This fish was immediately picked up by the Texas Parks and Wildlife department Sharelunker program. 

As with our deer and upland bird programs, our fish have a continuous intensive management program at the ranch consisting of aggressive forage enhancement coupled with  a bimonthly population study with culling and regular water testing performed on all lakes. 

Our packages are designed to be exclusive and preserve the catch-ability of the fish.  Over-fishing a lake will result in the bass population being ‘trained’ to lures and thus, harder to catch.  We will limit the number of people on the lake to 6 at any one time in a maximum of two boats.  We also limit the number of total fishing days including owner and family to 8 per month, giving the bass 23 days on average to not see a lure.

This reduced fishing pressure should ensure a quality fishing experience to be had by our clients. That is how we create the best bass fishing experience anywhere.
