November Progreso Fishing Report

November 24, 2017
Howdy from Sunny Mexico. Jen and I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and well spent. As for us, are bellies are full and we are feeling so blessed that our fishing business is doing so awesome...thanks to all of you who have fish with us and all the awesome reviews on TripAdvisor about us!!! 



This month has been way awesome and way bad to be honest...It started off superb, with excursions bringing in 30 to 60 trout per outing and numerous tarpon hook ups! But then about 3 weeks ago a strong storm blew through for 3 days along with a high spring tide and it just so muddied up our waters. The fish just will not hit in the dirty water, plain and simple....Then it started to clear up about 8 days later, then we were plagued with super calm glassy water....the speckled sea trout just will not hit in calm water, we need a ripple!!! Then, this week, the fourth week of the month, it came back to life...clean clear water and a breeze to ripple the water and we are now back to 20 to 40 fish per outing. Tarpon are still in and we have had a few awesome hook ups and major fights but then the last big jump they have shook the lure off...



Folks if you are reading this and coming this way for the winter, or with a cruise line, then please contact us asap if you want to fish....we stay so booked through April and I so dislike turning folks away. We have two boats open per day for booking to accommodate larger groups, max 5 persons per boat. If you want to see the beautiful side of our area, and fish in super safe and calm water of our back water lagoon, then by all means give us a shout. This is a wonderful family outing as you can see by all our reviews...Happy Holidays to Everyone and hope to fish with you soon!! Cheers
