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 had really great weather over the last week and we really can't complain. We did have a few showers yesterday and some rain accumulation which we always need. Other than that it ha been really nice with sunny day's highs hitting low 90, s and lows, I expect are dropping into the mid 60,s.
WATER: The water right outside Cabo Harbor is right around 72 to 74 degrees and actually pretty nice. Pacific side up and around the Finger Baja where it was dipping down to 69 degrees is still cold up there and it is like night and day compared to the Pacific side and the Cortez side. Cabo Bay is sitting right where cold water and warm water meet.
This link which will show you water temperatures for the southern half of Baja. http://www.tempbreak.com/index.php?&cwregion=cb
BILLFISH: Striped Marlin wasn’t too bad as there is still Marlin around and we are averaging about one per trip which isn’t too bad. Most are being enticed by live bait, but it seems the fish are slow to bite. They seem to also be moving all over the place from the 1150 to the Light House. The Marlin fishing is nothing great, but it is happening somewhat.
DORADO: Haven't heard of, much Dorado being caught this past week.
WAHOO: There were some pretty nice Wahoo caught this past week, which is good news, because we haven’t heard of anything lately.
TUNA: We should start to see some Tuna start to show soon. There hasn’t been any around the last 5 weeks, but really you never know. If the water temperatures stay like this I wouldn’t be surprised to start seeing them roll into the area.
INSHORE: A few Groupers and Sheephead in and around the Pedregal Rocks. There has been some Rooster fish activity, but nothing special though. There are Skip Jacks, Yellow Tail and Sierra on the Pacific side that are there and can be caught close to shore. I mean there is all kinds of fish in this area to catch and its not like we are getting skunked but it has been down compared to normal. All in All the fishing this past week has been hit and miss and we aren’t knocking them dead.

JC,s Grilled Grouper!
This is a South Baja secret ... and a great way to grill fish that leaves you worry-free. Not only does this make for easier fish cleaning, but the scales keep the fish from drying out while on the grill. Fish cooked this way consistently result in juicy, moist fillets.
4 tablespoons melted butter
3 cloves minced garlic
1 tablespoon finely grated Parmesan
1 tablespoon Essence, recipe follows
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 (3 1/2 to 4 pound) grouper, fillets removed with scales intact
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh herbs, such as tarragon, thyme, basil or chives
Arugula and Orange Salad, recipe follows
Jc,s Baja Seasoning):
2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried leaf oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme
2 cups arugula, cleaned
2 cups baby spinach, cleaned
1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
1 orange, supremed
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
Preheat the grill to medium-high.
In a small bowl combine the butter, garlic, Parmesan, Essence, and olive oil and whisk to combine.
Lay the fillets on the grill, scale side down, and brush generously with the melted butter mixture. Close the grill cover and cook for 3 minutes. Open and brush again with the melted butter mixture. Repeat this process until the flesh is firm and opaque, for a total cooking time of about 12 to 15 minutes for this size fish. The last minute of cooking time, sprinkle with the fresh herbs. Remove from the grill and serve immediately with Arugula and Orange Salad.
Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container.
Yield: about 2/3 cup
Salad: In a large salad bowl, combine the arugula, spinach, red onion, and orange segments.
In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard, orange juice, and vinegar. While whisking, slowly drizzle in the oil. Whisk until emulsified and season with salt and pepper.
JC,s Grouper Fingers with Tartar Sauce!!
Vegetable oil, for frying
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Yummy Sauce, recipe follows
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup grated onion
1/2 cup dill relish
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
Squeeze lemon juice
In a large Dutch oven, pour the oil to a depth of 3 inches; heat the oil until a thermometer reads 350 degrees F.
In a shallow dish, combine the flour, cornstarch, dill, salt and mustard.
In a separate shallow dish, pour in the buttermilk. Dredge the grouper strips in the flour mixture. Dip in the buttermilk, and dredge in the flour mixture again to coat.
Fry the grouper fingers, in batches, until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain on some paper towels. Serve immediately with the Yummy Sauce.

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.
