HEADLINES: June 8, 2015:
Tropical Storm Blanca rolled into the Baja California Peninsula on Monday, with rains and high winds expected to lash a wide area even as the system continued to lose strength.
Only recently a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 130 mph (215 kph), Blanca had faded to a tropical storm by the time it made landfall. It was downgraded to a tropical depression with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 kph) in the afternoon, and was expected to be a remnant low by Tuesday.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center forecast that rain associated with the storm would begin to fall in the U.S. Southwest later Monday.
Tropical storm warnings and watches were lifted for the entire peninsula, including its southern tip, where the resort region of Los Cabos was battered by Hurricane Odile last September. Local media said there were some flooded streets and scattered power outages in Los Cabos, but there were no immediate reports of major damage.
Blanca is the earliest tropical cyclone on record to make landfall on the peninsula, according to the Hurricane Center. The storm's center was about 60 miles (95 kilometers) southwest of Santa Rosalia in the afternoon, heading north-northwest at 17 mph (28 kph).
So all is good here in Cabo and today is nice and sunny. The port is open and we are back to normal, really just a 2 day set back.
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: Well the weather for the last 4 or 5 days have kinda had things in an uproar since we didn’t know what this storm was going to do and luckily we didn’t get much from it but a little wind and rain. The weather right now is really nice and we should be tipping the scales at around 90 today. Its calm out and its beautiful so get on down to Cabo now.
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: We has some nice Blue Marlin landed this past week and 6 Blues from 250lbs to 300lbs were caught. We know the Blue Marlin season is just around the corner and as the weeks get into summer we expect lots more Blues and Blacks. There were still good numbers of Striped Marlin at the 1150 spot this past week also, so when it comes to Marlin fishing it hasn’t been bad.
SHARK FISHING: Haven't heard of any Sharks this week, not like last week.
DORADO: The fishing for Dorado had slowed way down at the first part of the week and later in the week got pretty good until the storm came along and shut it down.
WAHOO: Very few this week caught.
TUNA: A few small ones this week but they pretty much shut down.
INSHORE: Inshore action has also been slow due to storm this past week as only a few Rooster Fish were landed. Some Jack Crevail and Skip Jack are being caught also right now but we will see this coming week.

Blackened Skip Jack Recipe!
Skipjack tuna, otherwise known as striped tuna, is amazingly underrated. If it’s line caught and bled, like the best sashimi fish always are, it’s terrific raw, rare or cooked. It has a bolder flavour than some tuna, so suits more robust sauces or garnishes. In this recipe, I've made a Cajun-inspired spice mix to add crunch and wow to the outside.
• ½ tspground coriander
• 1 tsponion powder
• 1 tspground dried thyme
• ½ tspground cumin
• ¼ tspground fennel
• ½ tspground black pepper
• ¼ tspground white pepper
• ½ tspmustard powder
• 1 tspsalt
• 1 kgstriped tuna loin, cut into 8 x 2 cm thick steaks
• a little oil to put on the barbecue
Mix all the spices together with the salt. Sprinkle some of the spice mix onto a plate, lay each piece of the fish onto it, so that the whole side has a fine, even spice coating, and use your fingers to sprinkle more spice mix on top.
Heat a barbecue (or possibly a chargrill pan) until quite hot but not so hot that it is smoking.
Oil the fish lightly by dipping each piece onto an oiled plate. Cook the fish on each side for about 3 minutes. You want the tuna to still be pink in the middle for the best results.
Serve with sides of your choice; my preferences are buttered cauliflower, a potato salad, and some bruised kale with pine nuts.
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.
