JC stuns community”and says”I will retake what is rightfully mine and that is President and the supreme leader of the world Marlin Association”!! Supreme Leader JC? He went on to say: “ive seen fire, and ive seen rain, and ive also seen a few nice Bluegills also , but the stars have aligned, and the Gods have chosen me, as their privileged child to take the throne again as President and commander in chief of the world Marlin association and its army!! Army JC? “He went on to say he was going to dispatch all his disciples to many strategic places on the globe to await further instructions and tips on Marlin Fishing”I asked him who he thought he was making a claim like this? And he said: “I hired you to write that dumb fishing report and thats all you need to know”The he said: “You are half a sandwich in this picnic, and if your not careful I will strip you of your pension”Pension? For writing the report!! Whatever JC!!
Jc Sportfishing Charters is a family owned and operated business and has been fishing in Cabo San Lucas for the past 18 years. Jerry, explains that his charter business is geared more for families and novice anglers, making sure everyone who charters a boat with him have a great time and lots of fun. We welcome families, and groups. We want everyone who fishes with us to take all the sites in and have a memorable experience. This is what is most important to us. We have and do a few tournaments each year and can cater to fisherman who might be interested in tournament fishing. Well lets get on with the fishing report for this past week.
WEATHER: We really cant ask for any better weather than we had for the last couple weeks. The sun just continues to shine about every day. We have had a couple overcast days but nothing major. Highs around the mid to ladder 80,s and lows in the mid to lower 60,s. Everyone knows why so many people do come to Cabo and it’s the near perfect weather year round. We do get some hotter months in July, August and September but during those months, all the fishing and water sports here, are really good.
WATER: Well, quite the contrast of water temperatures from the Pacific side to up inside the Sea of Cortez. I was looking at the Temp Break map and it shows lots of really cool water on Pacific, from entrance at Cabo harbor, south east towards Gordo Banks, its all really warm water. From 69 in some areas on Pacific to 79 on the other side of Gordo Banks. I think we know where e will be finding the fish over the next week.

BILLFISH: Striped Marlin fishing has been pretty good this week from the 95 spot up to the San Jamie Banks and most fish being landed on ballyhoo along with pitching live bait, with a few on lures. My friend had a 400lbs Blue Marlin hooked up for 4 hours on Wednsday aboard a Panga and he ended up losing the fish in the battle. It is really early for any Blues to be showing right now, but the water in some areas is really warm and this is drawing them in early this year. Striped Marlin has been good all week on the Pacific and the Sea of Cortez side both.
DORADO: A few Dorado still being taken in the same areas as the marlin. With all that warm water on the Sea of Cortez side, we are going to be seeing a lot of Dorado being caught over this next week as it seems to be in the cards.
Some interesting facts on Dorado:
1. Turquoise, green, and yellow patterns; can be distinguished from the pompano dolphin by its 55 to 66 dorsal fin rays and a very wide, square tooth patch on the tongue.
2. The largest dolphin fish length reported is almost 7 feet (2.1 m); the maximum weight reported is 88 pounds (40 kg).
3. Growth is extremely rapid. Specific rates vary among regions and are sensitive to water temperatures.
4. Oceanic pelagic fish; generally restricted to waters warmer than 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20º C)
5. Life span: Short, maximum is 5 years; males live longer than females.
6. Dolphin fish reach maturity at 4 to 5 months.
WAHOO: I have heard of a few Wahoo being landed tight to the beach over this past week. Most sizes are ranging from 15lbs to 25lbs but at least we are landing some this time of year.
TUNA: I haven’t heard of anything as far as Tuna goes as they seem to be long gone right now but they will show up sooner or later.
INSHORE: Good number s of Sierra being landed just about every day this past week. From the Pump House to Ranch Migrino it is pretty much wide open if your using hootchies and striped bait. Quite a few Skip Jacks close to shore also being caught. There has been some Dorado also reported caught in the warmer water close to shore around San Jose and the new marina area. If you like Sierra its your time right now. Do you know that Sierra is great a soup or makes an excellent Ceviche. This is so typical of Baja California. Next issue I will post some recipes for both.

13. Chef’s Tip:.
14. Be sure you DRAIN the tomatoes and the lobster meat before sprinkling them over the pizza shell. Otherwise your pizza will turn out soggy.
15. I like to use a oblong pizza or cookie sheet so I can make a few at a time. I use Large 10″ shells, or you can make personal pan pizzas with the small ones, just cut down the ingredients.
Taking Fish Home from Cabo?
I wanted to give the best recommendations for fish processing. We highly urge you to use Griceldas as they pick up your fish at the boat when you return from your charter. Filetting is $1.50lb and Smoking is $5.00lb with the finished product in 1LB packages vacuum sealed. They keep the fish at the Smokehouse until you go home. If you plan on taking your fish home you can buy a hard plastic ice chest in Cabo but they are very expensive running about $60.00 for a 48 quart ice chest. What we recommend you doing is bringing an ice chest with you and putting some of your baggage in the the chest and you might be ale to save on extra baggage fees.
BEWARE: Please beware of the guys in the street selling boat charters. If you wait till the day you are fishing and go to the dock where your boat is many times people will mislead you to another boat or dock trying to put you on a boat that was not meant for you. You need to have a person guide you to your boat, who is from a reputable charter company. This way there is no confusion or misleading. Please remember when renting Sport fishing boats in Cabo that you rent your boat from reputable and established business. Walk into a fishing fleet office and ask questions about what you are getting and what are the costs? You don’t want to rent boats from vendors in the streets and you do not want to book through shady websites offering you the world. Check through travel forums about reputable fishing fleets to deal with. Look for testimonials about the fleet your booking, your charter with. Ask about what will the boat be supplying? Will it include beverages or lunches? How much does it cost to fillet your catch? Check to see if charter boat is insured? Ask about getting your catch smoked? Check cost of a fishing license. These are just a few things to consider when booking your charter boat. We will be talking more about this in the next weeks fishing report. Until next time good fishing and we hope to see you in Cabo soon.
