Winter Time Fishing in the Ria, Progeso Mexico

January 4, 2015
First let me say this, i am so pleased to see such clear water back in the Ria. I have fished these waters now for 4 years, and last year I was so shocked to see from December thru March, the water was dirty and cloudy and the fishing sucked! I was turning down tours because I just did not want to takes folks money when I knew the bite was dead. This was due to an abnormal increase in rain fall the late summer before that, as all our water runs underground, it pops up via springs in the mangroves and Ria area. Like hundreds of them all throughout the area we fish. In fact the first place I always take folks is to the above ground spring that we can get out and walk around, set inside the mangroves, it is a magical spot.

So here it is January 4th, and the past 5 weeks we have had either family, friends or clients out for a days fishing and it every time has been a blast. The fish biting crazy right now, are the speckled sea trout. This time of the year is when the big giant ones come in and the bite on top water is awesome when they attact. Snook, and tarpon, well the tarpon will return in April when they follow the sardines into the Ria for spawning and normally remain throughout the summer into the late fall. The snook are always there but a bit spooky, experienced fisherman tho will have a chance a catching one.



If you are visiting via a cruise ship or staying in the area or just living here and you want to go have some fun, in a beautiful space......Then gives us a hollar. Happy New Year to all....


 

October 2014 Fishing Report / Fall Season Report

October 21, 2014
Ok, ok, ok, I know it has been since May since I posted a fishing report. Forgive me, been really busy and not much of a writer. The fishing since the spring here in Ria has been for the most part awesome as it always is. Don't get me wrong, because of tidal, weather and water clarity, the fishing sometimes is more like fishing instead of catching. I would step out and say that 90% of the times we have had clients out or just myself, the fishing is AWESOME.

Top water is still the lure of choi...

May 2014 Progreso Yucatan Fishing Report

May 7, 2014
Here in the Yucatan of Mexico, the fishing has turned to freekin awesome!! With the winter Nortes behind us, the water back in the Ria has cleared up and the big fish have returned. We had clients a few weeks ago and caught 17 sea trout, with myself catching the largest I have ever caught back there, a 6 pound lunker. The coolest part of it, it is with all top water hard plastic lures. The explosions when these fish hit is so exciting!!

January 2014 Fishing Report

January 4, 2014
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...

The key to tarpon fishing is.......

February 13, 2010
The key to tarpon fishing is keeping your presentation as natural as possible. Tarpon are fish with a very keen awareness of their surroundings. I learned much about tarpon a long time ago in Florida. I was staying in a place off a saltwater lake that was teaming with tarpon in the twenty to fifty pound range. It was my first time fishing for tarpon. You could see them swimming in the water but whenever I place bait near them they would not grab it. I noticed they would swim by areas that I w...

Snook Fishing Secrets

Light Tackle Tactics for Big Fish

Today everybody uses light tackle for snook. Yet there are still many misconceptions about snook gear.

The most important piece of equipment for catching big snook on light tackle is the rod. Scott uses long stiff rods for several reasons.

First of all the whitebait that is so important to a successful snook trip between March and October can be easily thrown off when casting. Also ...

SKIPPIN' AND POPPIN' AND MANGROVE MIGRAINES

  SKIPPIN' AND POPPIN' AND MANGROVE MIGRAINES

SCIENTISTS REMAIN AMBIGUOUS on whether it's possible for a mangrove to reach out and grab a snook plug. But personally, I'm convinced. I've seen them do it many times.

In fact, I suspect that the mangrove was genetically engineered by a crazed snook-plug manufacturer, for the express purpose of maximizing his sales. That's the only explanation of a tree that grows with its twisti...
