June 2018 Progreso Mexico Fishing Report

Posted by Travel Merida on Saturday, June 30, 2018, In : Chelem/Chuburna Mexico Fishing Report 
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 ...

What a blast the fishing here in the Progreso Mexico area has been over the past months..The Tarpon....wow, we have hooked onto some huge tarpon and have lost a number of them as well.

December 24th Progreso Fishing Report

A Very Merry Christmas to all our fishing fans out there!!!!! Cheers to you all indeed! 

Today is Christmas Eve and I feel so blessed that yesterday I received a last minute booking with a couple from Atlanta Georgia. Eric and Ashley got a true taste of top water Ria fishing here in the Yucatan of Mexico. A day full of action with Ashley catching the first fish while we were targeting the tarpon. 



The wind today I have to say was blowing hard, but in the Ria we get no more than a foot swell if ...

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!

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...
