HEADLINES: June 1, 2015:
JC was screaming: “Just take them all, I have worked years on my recipes and now people are begging for them”. Jc said: I wrote that Ebook “As the Admiral Seas It, Recipes from My Heart”and now I am famous and the cat is out of the bag. He said I come from humble beginnings and now every spring breaker in Cabo comes by the office to get my Autograph. I had to set him straight: and I told him he was a Marlin legend in his own mind, at that point he snapped and said: I created you, and you created me, and together we have created this powerful Rupert Murdoch enterprise in Cabo. Jc Spouted: “I am the Ted Turner of Cabo and you are mere sandwhich in the picnic basket”. I said: picnic basket? You owe it to your fans to give away your fish recipes!! JC Screamed: “You been stealing my recipes for years now and I have instructed my lawyers to take legal action against you”!!! I am out of here I have a report to do!! Just another day in JC office?
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: Been very nice all week and we can really feel the heat starting to set in over the last week and I think there is a storm down south that is maybe one of the first tropical disturbances of the season. We are not looking for any storm activity right now as I think we had enough with Hurricane ODILE last season. That was enough to last a lifetime, but for now we are having great weather.
WATER: Pretty much the same as last week as far as the water temps go.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.

BILLFISH: Marlin fishing has been really good all this past week. Lots of fish stacked up at the 1150 area and most of them are Marlin. Pitching live bait at them along with lures and slow trolled ballyhoo has been working very well. We did have one boat brave the pacific side and there was 3 boys aboard who managed to to land 2 Marlin, so at least 2 out of the 3 boys did score a Marlin which is really cool as we love to see the kids land some nice fish. The boys also landed 1 Wahoo, 8 Tuna and 2 really nice Dorado. We promised our friend from the fish addict that we would report about the great day they had over on the pacific side. None of the other boats wanted to brave the pacific side that day so the boys made a good choice to over there. CONGRATULATIONS GUYS!!
SHARK FISHING: We have been catching lots of sharks this past week, Bull Sharks and Hammerheads are lots of fun to catch, but it isn’t the season for them so we are catching them are releasing them. Lots of fun be we have to release.
DORADO: Dorado has taken a turn from last week with just a few caught this past week. Some of the Dorado taken this week were very nice fish and the Light House was a good area for Dorado using lures and slow trolled bait. Not a lot, but it is getting better and we are going into Dorado season now.
WAHOO: There are Wahoo still being caught at Grey Rock on jet heads, rapalas and dead cabilltos being slow trolled. They were catching the same amount of Wahoo as last week, but they are still catching this past week. Looks like a lot of guys have been spear fishing in the area and really I don’t even know if that’s legal or not? I heard one boat took 33 Wahoo and another boat 7 and at this point I am wondering where the fish cops are as it seems they have no problem messing with the sport fishing boats but not guys out spear fishing. The fish cops are always checking our limits, but they're never around when they are actually needed. Anyway, there is Wahoo in the area.
TUNA: They have been showing up at the doughnut, but not in big numbers, although there were a few taken on cedar plugs and striker kings with all being blind strikes as there were no porpoise in the area. There was one report of a 175lb Tuna taken yesterday.
INSHORE: Action inshore has just been ok this past week. There was some Dorado and Rooster Fish. The Roosters are averaging 12lb to 20lb and being landed from the Solmar to the Light House. Trolling live bait has been what there hitting so remember to buy a lot of live bait if your fishing Roosters.

How to Cook Rooster Fish?
A challenging game fish, roosterfish isn't usually considered a tasty food fish. Its distinctive dorsal fins -- seven thin, long spines -- rise when the fish becomes excited, giving the fish its common name. An in-shore species found in the eastern Pacific Ocean from southern California to Peru, its meat is tough and has a strong flavor. Look to the cuisine of the folks who reside on the shores near the roosterfish’s habitat for the proper ways to cook this beautiful fish.
Fillet the fish with a sharp fillet knife. Place the fillet on a work surface, skin side down. With larger game fish like roosterfish, hold the tail as you slice away the skin from the meat, placing your hand on the skin as you work your way up the fillet.Remove the bloodline; roosterfish have large bloodlines, which can give the fish a strong flavor. Once you remove the fillet from the skin, lay the fillet skin side up to expose the bloodline. Cut about 1/2-inch deep along both sides of the bloodline in a "V" shape to completely remove it.Cut the roosterfish fillets into around cubes, sprinkle them with salt and black pepper and marinate them for 30 minutes in lime juice. Saute the fish in a skillet over high heat until lightly browned, then lower the heat to medium and cook for about five more minutes. Like other members of the jack family, roosterfish has firm flesh and flakes when done.

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.
