JC screamed: I did it! I did it! I did it! Seems JC was doing his stand up comedy routine at the Improv in LA last week, and was discovered by a couple Hollywood Big Whigs. They offered JC a movie deal which will be called “The Marlin Chronicles” It looks as if JC demanded the lead role, and things got a little crazy, when JC slugged the director, then put him in a Rope-hung figure-four armlock, telling the guy, the lead role is mine little man!! JC then said: “Not only that, you Hollywood wanna be, Chris my buddy will be getting the supporting actor role”!! JC went on, by putting the director in a Camel Clutch Hold and told the director and producer to sign on the dotted line now!! Oh and by the way JC screamed: “Darrel will be getting a small role in the movie”as he has acting experience when he was a little kid, he was a child actor, playing Little Rickys friend on the “I Love Lucy Show”and doing another skit as Fred and Ethel Merts stepson: “Danny the Brat” he also played a role on Gunsmoke, playing Festuses illegitimate Gran child “Bobbysue”. JC says: “that worm Fish Report Boy isn’t getting nothing” in this film, he isn’t worthy of me or my professional status. Let him continue writing that dum report he writes for me!!!

JC,s LEGEND and LIES will continue next week!!!

 

 

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: It has been really good up until yesterday when we had rain most of the day. I was consistently raining, just about all day. Not a hard down pour just light rain all day. Not really, too much wind, just rainy. Besides that, the whole week was really nice, but very hot. Highs in the 90,s and lows in the low 70,s.

WATER: Still pretty warm in lots of areas with an average temperature of 86 to 88 degrees.

Please check out the Tempbreak map link below to get a good idea on water temperatures.
http://www.tempbreak.com/index.php?&cwregion=cb

BILLFISH: Still pretty strong Billfishing for Blue and Striped Marlin, along with Sailfish. San Jamie Banks is where the Marlin and Sailfish are being landed using live bait, lures and ballyhoo. The Sailfish are still here due to the warm water temperatures in the area. Normally Sails come in for 2 or 3 weeks maximum and then are gone and we don’t see many the whole year. In Puerta Vallarta the Sails are there year round but here we only get a glimpse of them throughout the year.


DORADO: The Dorado fishing has picked up some and we are landing a few nice ones in the 15lb to 25lb mark. It seems after the good rain we had we have seen some good Dorado bit over the last couple days. This is really good news cause we think they mite be here to stay awhile. We haven’t seen really too much good Dorado action all year as it has been pretty much hit and miss.

SWORDFISH: Hasn’t heard of any caught this week.

WAHOO: Our own Bob Marlin some really nice Wahoo this past week, we had 3 that were in the 30lb to 50lb range. We were jigging iron and using rapalas at Grey Rock when we landed these fish. There has also been quite a few smaller ones being landed in the same areas. We got lucky and landed like 3 over 30lbs.

TUNA:  Nice size Tuna were landed this past week with one at 140lbs and another at 200lbs.The Tuna action we are seeing now is mostly football size Tuna being caught at Grey Rock , tight to the beach using Cedar Plugs and King Busters. The bigger Tuna have moved up and around Jamie Banks. If the commercial Tuna boats stay away we might continue to land some nice ones.

INSHORE: There has been some good Amberjack action reported using iron. Small Tuna on sardines has been good inshore if you can find the sardines. From Grey Rock to the Pump House has been the area for decent Tuna and even Sailfish action using ballyhoo. Some small Dorado every once in a while have been landed.

It might be worth grabbing a Panga and going out for a 5 hour excursion to see what happens inshore.

JC,s Grilled Amberjack Sandwiches with Spicy Tartar Sauce!!

Ingredients
Four 4- to 6-ounce amberjack fillets, cleaned of all skin and bones (mahi does well as a substitute)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons fish rub, such as Emeril’s Fish Rub
1 cup mayonnaise, homemade or store-bought
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro or dill
2 tablespoons dill pickle relish
2 teaspoons minced garlic
Sea salt and cracked black pepper
1 to 2 tablespoons hot sauce of choice, preferably Louisiana-style or Sriracha
4 medium hamburger buns or rolls of choice
4 large leaves romaine lettuce

Directions
Heat a grill or grill pan to medium heat.

Brush the fillets with the olive oil and sprinkle on all sides with the fish rub. When the grill is hot, place the fillets evenly spaced on the grill. Cook until the fish is just cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Flip only once if possible.

While the fish is cooking, combine the mayonnaise, cilantro, relish, garlic and a sprinkle of salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Start with a generous tablespoon of hot sauce, then stir and taste to assess the heat. If more is preferred, add up to 1 more tablespoon. Set aside.

Slice the buns and place face-down on the grill until toasted, or toast in the oven. Spread the desired amount of the tartar sauce, around 2 tablespoons, on the top half of each bun. Place the grilled fish on the bottom halves.

If desired, quickly grill the romaine leaves until some light charring occurs. Top each sandwich with 1 leaf and enjoy!

Steak-like fish, such as amberjack or mahi, indicate their doneness as the sides turn white. Once the sides are white a little over halfway, flip the fish.

JC,s Baja Blackened Amberjack!!

Ingredients

1 (1-pound) amberjack fillet

1 tablespoon paprika

2 teaspoons onion powder

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper

Cooking spray

Preparation

  1. Cut fillet into 4 equal pieces. Combine paprika and next 6 ingredients in a small bowl; stir well. Dredge fish in spice mixture; let stand 5 minutes.

  2. Coat a large cast-iron skillet with cooking spray; place over high heat until very hot. Add fish, and cook 3 minutes. Turn fish, and cook 3 to 4 additional minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Fish should look charred. (You may prefer to do this procedure outside due to the small amount of smoke that is created.)

 

 

JC,s Baja Sweet Poison Cocktail !!

  • 1 oz. light rum

  • 2 oz. coconut rum

  • 1 oz. Blue Curacao

  • pineapple juice

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.

Fish Report Boy: Screamed , yea im back, I quit last week but it didnt work out with the circus, besides, JC the worm called, and said he needed my help. I guess he was court ordered to Marlin Boot Camp, by a judge in Mexico. It was either Marlin Boot Camp or Jail. I dont even know what the lil Twirp did, but he took that clown Chris with him to camp. Maybe those 2 fools will lean something? I doubt it, but maybe!! Fish Report Boy says: JC, Im in charge now not you, and I hope Chris is in there a long, long time. Things are going to change JC, no more glitz and glamour which you love, no more ebooks, no more songs, no more Dome of Silence, no more Donald Trump lies, no more fishing stories, and that ritual of you standing in the mirror every morning chanting that stupid Marlin song you wrote and then  looking at yourself for a half an hour, is going to end,  just STOP, STOP, STOP!!!

 I was sent to a Carp Boot Camp once for 45 days and I came out a better man.  While you are in Marlin Boot Camp JC: Your LEGENDS and LIES are going to end.

Fish Report Boy says:  I love to see that Mango Farmer Chris in Boot CampI am sending a couple boys over to the ranch in the EAST Cape to pick them Mango trees Clean. LOL, LOL, LOL

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: Let it rain!! Let it rain!!Let it rain!! We have been getting some pretty good down pours  and as I am writing this report this Sunday morning we are getting a good cloud burst right now. Firt part of the week also we had some good rains as Javier passed by and gave us more rain so really we have only about 4 days of sunny weather this week. Today is cloudy and overcast but really that’s what comes when your in Cabo in middle of August.

 

WATER: Well the water has been a big washing machine over the past week with Javier passing by, and creating a few days of pretty brown and green water, but it is getting back to normal now, and were hoping that we don’t get anymore storms passing by, or hitting us for that matter.

 Please check out the Tempbreak map link below to get a good idea on water temperatures.

http://www.tempbreak.com/index.php?&cwregion=cb

 

 BILLFISH: All Billfishing is really strong over the past week, even know we did have a storm pass by us, it seems to have not effected things to bad. Most f the action is on the Pacific side up and around the Margarita area 3 miles offshore, using lures and live bait. Strong Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin and Sailfish fishing all week. JC says, “we have been having very good Billfish fishing for like 3 weeks now” it has been a great year for Blue Marlin and we expect it to keep being good through out October and tournament season. Sailfish have just been off the hook which is normal to Puerta Vallarta but not Cabo, so we aren’t complaining as it is all good action if we Catch and Release any Billfish catches.

 

DORADO: Much better than it has been over the last month with some pretty good action pretty much all over the place but really good tight to the beach. Most of them have been smaller, ranging from 6lb to 15lbs, but we have had some up to 30lb to 40lbs.

SWORDFISH: Hasn’t heard of any caught this week.

 

WAHOO: Purple and Black Jet Heads are working really good this week for Wahoo. Lots of good action at Grey Rock and in front of the Pedregal Rocks. If you troll really fast inshore we are sure you will see some action.. They are hitting rapalas deep divers and or downrigging rapalas. Some have been taking on live bait and some reaching 35lbs to 50lbs.

 

TUNA: Tuna fishing has been very good this past week. Grey Rock all the way up to the Old Light House has been producing mostly football size Tuna. At leaset we are seeing some Tuna action and the smaller ones are really good to eat and I have added some good Skip Jack recipes to this report and basically you can use the same recipe for the football size Tunas being caught.

 

INSHORE:  Tuna, Wahoo  and Dorado action have propelled the inshore action this past week. It has been pretty hot on all species inshore. You will likely catch Wahoo on Jet Heads and black and purple Rapalas. Dorado inshore you will catch with live bait and trolling lures. Rooster are of course making things happen close to shore also, so it is pretty wide open right now inshore. Some Skip Jacks are hitting also with some good numbers being reported. There has been Sailfish reported caught inshore also on Pangas so it mite be worth grabbing a Panga and going out for a 5 hour excursion to see what happens inshore.

  2. rinse and pat dry your wahoo and put in the marinade.

  3. cover marinading fish and put in the fridge for 30 minutes.

JC,s Baja Wahoo “Mojo de Ajo”!!

 

We are BIG fans of Wahoo fish and with having lived in Baja , we had many occasions to experiment with this fine fish…

Ono or  Wahoo, they are one and the same! Wahoo fish is the fastest fish in the ocean and it’s firm white flaky flesh is such a perfect texture for grilling. It is considered a prize fish when caught and is often called “ono”.

One important issue with Wahoo is it can be dry, so it is important not to overcook it!

A great grilled Wahoo fish recipe is with “Mojo de Ajo” sauce. The translation is essentially “drenched in garlic”. This dish is simple and a crowd pleaser.It is an easy and delicious toasted garlic butter. For garlic lovers,it will become a family favorite.

Also,keep in mind that this Mojo de Ajo Sauce can be used with any fish or shellfish. I really like this with is Tombo/ Fresh Albacore Tuna, grilled medium rare. We actually brought this back from our days of living in Mexico.

One important note, check out our other fish pages too! Many of the sauces and preparations work super for Ono or Wahoo!
