January 2019 Progreso Fishing Report

January 19, 2019
Well again sorry folks for being so tarde in my fishing reports....BUT, what a winter season we are having here in Progreso Mexico....Tarpon...first and foremost, are still in, the 10 to 40 pounders stay inshore for the year until they become fast enough to keep up with the ocean migration...We have had since the turn of the new year 13 hook ups and 4 pics and many more than that from October thru December of last year...The speckled sea trout have been off and on...we get this time of the year many cold fronts so if you are lucky to catch the timing right the specks are hard to beat...Super fun on the light action Okuma spin cast gear we provide..The tarpon don´t seem to mind the pressure changes we are finding over the years..tides tho do make a difference....



We have blessed with putting so may folks on their first tarpon ever and that is what makes me tic....Fishing with families from the cruise ship and visiting guests plus the avid hard core fishermen and women is why I love my job.....



If you are visiting the Progreso area, and you want the chance to catch a tarpon plus the speckled sea trout that we always catch in the back waters....then do please contact us.....with over 300 tours a year we truly know how to care for our guests....just look at our TripAdvisor Reviews.

June 2018 Progreso Mexico Fishing Report

June 30, 2018
Howdy folks! Well both May and June since the tarpon have moved into our area, the fishing has been both super exciting and frustrating as well..Frustrating because in the past two months, we have had 21 tarpon hook ups but only 6 photographs. As you know they are very hard to keep hooked and with all that thrashing around it is no wonder why! The coolest thing tho is we get to target the tarpon all the way thru January. 



Not only the tarpon that have been exciting, but the speckled sea trout ...

December 23, 2015
Well as you can see by my last blog post being in May, we have been real busy!!! Fishing all spring and the summer has been awesome. Lots and lots of people from all around the world have visited and we have caught lots of fish. The past two months has been a tad tough as the water has gone to a tea color. Even tho we are still finding pockets of clean clear water, the fishing has not been the best. It is picking up tho as the water is starting to clean up and that makes for awesome winter se...

April 28 2015 Chelem Fishing Report

April 28, 2015
Since the first of the year, the fishing here in the Yucatan of Mexico, specifically in Chelem/Chuburna, Yucatan Mexico, has been soooo awesome. Mind you the name of my website is YucatanSnook, no Snook have been caught so far this year and the awesome Tarpon won't move in till June or so. BUT, the Speckled Sea Trout have been ON! We have caught large numbers of fish and many well over the 2 pound mark and many more over 3 pounds. On light tackle and top water lures, the action is a blast!

So far though this year no tarpon or snook, which is normal as we won't see them return to the Ria in masses until the early summer months thru the fall. But as you can see the Specks have been awesome. Using the light action ge...

What a beautiful Saturday this turned out to be. The forecasters for sure got it right. Light westerly wind, cool temps, and when this happens, the BIG trout turn on. Speckled Sea Trout that is. They are abundant back in the Ria and today the big ones showed up indeed.
