If you know Bill, then you know he is obsessed with fishing Lake Baccarac in Mexico. In 2016 he made his eighth trip down there, but on that trip he fished a jig of his own. One he specifically designed for the lake based on the countless hours he has spent fishing it. Naturally, we decided to name the new jig model after this famous body of water. That trip was the initial test of the Baccarac Jig prototype, if you would like to read those results click here.
Lake Baccarac is deep, and its bottom is primarily made up of of rock and wood. The goal for this design was to target those deep dwelling bass with the jig-and-trailer standing upright on the bottom.
The large, flat bottom on the head gives it tremendous stability, while the wide, rounded top is designed to make the jig wobble through rock like a football head.
In the past, many customers asked Bill if he could make the Original Jig in a heavier weight. Well, the fact is that he designed that jig specifically to target bass in shallow water, and always said that if he were to make a heavier jig for deeper water, it would have to be a different design altogether.
And that’s just what he did.
After some tweaking and many hours of testing, the Baccarac Jig is now available. It is made in two sizes: 1/2 oz and 3/4 oz. Like with all BiCO Jigs, they are made lead-free in the USA with Owner Hooks. Every Baccarac Jig is personally assembled by Bill, to ensure the same level of quality he requires for himself.
