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 ...

Posted by Travel Merida on Saturday, November 5, 2016, In : Chelem/Chuburna Mexico Fishing Report 
Howdy folks, well the later part of the summer and the fall here in Progreso Mexico has been such a blast to fish. Lots of 5 to 30 pound tarpon have been caught and as always lots and lots of speckled sea trout. The beauty of fishing the Ria with the clear shallow waters plus the amazing bird life and flamings is something every fisher person needs to do while in the area.

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

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!

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...

Winter Time Fishing in the Ria, Progeso Mexico

Posted by Travel Merida on Sunday, January 4, 2015, In : Snook Fishing 
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 mangr...

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!!
