January here in the Yucatan can be tricky for catching a good calm day to actually go fishing. Norte's as they are called here, or a cold front, always seems to come from the northeast and can blow up to 20 km an hour, making ocean fishing out of the question. If it is not raining, then Ria fishing can still be possible on the down side of the mangroves. The bite is tough, snook and tarpon seem to stop, you can see them in the shallows, but they are a tough bite when a Norte is over head. The trout on the other hand, tear it up. The shrimp move into the shallows during the cold fronts and the trout know it. Always a good bite and a great top water attacker. 

We still have some date available for January and February so email us to reserve your trip. Weather permitting of course!
