Howdy folks, well this summer here in Progreso has been really awesome...We have had since May 1st 33 tarpon hook ups and a dozen photos with the fish. The specks are always on and some big fish have been caught which is typical for the summer months in our shallow back water lagoon.



Tarpon are both in the marina area and back in the lagoon...we are catching the 20 to 50 pound range and on light action tackle, the fight is a blast.

December 2015 Fishing Report

Posted by Travel Merida on Wednesday, December 23, 2015, In : Chelem/Chuburna Mexico Fishing Report 
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

Posted by Travel Merida on Tuesday, April 28, 2015, In : Chelem/Chuburna Mexico Fishing Report 
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!

March Fishing Report - The Ria in Chelem Mexico

Posted by Travel Merida on Thursday, March 5, 2015, In : Snook Fishing 
First I have to say the fishing so far this year in the Ria here in Chelem Yucatan Mexico has been awesome. Today, March 5th, has again proved that to be true. With 17 speckled sea trout caught, all on top water popping lures, the action was a blast had by all 4 of us.



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...

MId January Fishing Report

Posted by Travel Merida on Saturday, January 17, 2015, In : Snook Fishing 
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.

Larry, his wife Sherry and I caught a total of 15 trout, 5 we threw back and of the final 10, 6 were over 2 pounds, one at 2.6 and the last caught by myself, 3.6 pounds, ranks as one of the biggies caught here in the past four y...

October 2014 Fishing Report / Fall Season Report

Posted by Randy on Tuesday, October 21, 2014, In : Snook Fishing 
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

Posted by Travel Merida on Wednesday, May 7, 2014, In : Snook Fishing 
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

Posted by Travel Merida on Saturday, January 4, 2014, In : Snook Fishing 
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.......

Posted by YUCATAN SNOOK on Saturday, February 13, 2010, In : Snook Fishing 
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...

SKIPPIN' AND POPPIN' AND MANGROVE MIGRAINES

Posted by Mexico Fishing Adventures on Wednesday, December 23, 2009, In : Snook Fishing 


  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...
