The weather is just beautiful and sunny, the towns are vibrant with events and activities, the whales have started to arrived to our waters, and there’s always something going on in town and surrounding neighborhoods, offering plenty of things to do and enjoy holidays. Lots of things to do during Christmas week in Cabo so ge ton down here and enjoy all the many activities we have to offer in Los Cabos.
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: You cant beat this time of year for Cabo weather it is one of the best times of year for coming to Mexico and specifically Cabo San lucas. We have been having day time highs in the low to mid 80,s and the lows at night in the low to mid 60,s. Its really nice and we could even stand for it to get a Little cooler son.
WATER: The wáter continues to linger in the area and it makes the fishing I think go up and down, with some coole temperaturas I think the fishing mite get better and more consistent. We are not complaning but we would like to see more action if we can. At JC,s we want you to get your Marlin or that prize Wahoo or Dorado. http://www.tempbreak.com/index.php?&cwregion=cb
BILLFISH: Well the Marlin fishing was not to hot but over the last day or so it has turned around big time. Our boats landed like 5 yesterday and we also hit the Dorados pretty hard also. The most action has been from the Light House to the Golden Gate where the action has been pretty good using live bait and landing a few on lures. The fishing was really spotty the first part of the week but really got good over the last day. This weeks report was a day late so we actually got some better news to report than we would have if report was out on time.
DORADO: The action for Dorado was pretty bad at the start of the week but has really got good over the last day or so. Fishing was really spotty first part of the week and there was no schools of Dorado but it seems the schools have moved in since yesterday and the action was pretty decent. Maybe the water is changing because the with this warm water in place that we have been experiencing it was slow and we are hoping for the Dorado move down south form up north.
SWORDFISH: Hasn't heard of any caught this week.
WAHOO: The Wahoo bite is just SO SO, but if you are using Rapalas you mite have a good chance of landing one. This is what they seem to be hitting up at Rancho Migrino.
TUNA: The Tuna fishing has been good one day and the next day nothing. Most are football size fish being caught about a mile off the beach from Solmar to the Light House. The fish are being landed on king busters and we even have reports of some really nice fish boated up and around San Jamie Banks. So with the Tuna it has been hit and miss and you really never know.
INSHORE: Good numbers of Rooster Fish ranging in size from 12lbs to 35lbs are being caught tight to the beach. We really don’t know why the Roosters are here now as they normally show up in July and summer months. The pangas have been doing really well inshore for Dorado and even the Wahoo fishing has been good tight to the beach. The productive areas are from the Solmar all the way to the Pump House.
THE FACTS ON SAILFISH !!
Sailfish take their name from the large dorsal fin that stretches almost the full length of their bodies. While their sail-like fins are impressive, as is the fight they're known for putting up when they encounter fishermen, the sailfish's real claim to fame is that it's the fastest swimmer in the ocean: these fish reach up to 68 miles per hour. Sailfish are abundant and not considered endangered or under any protections for conservation purposes.
Sailfish are saltwater fish residing in warm and temperate ocean waters. Two main subspecies exist: the Atlantic and the Indo-Pacific sailfish. (The Atlantic species is Florida's official state saltwater fish.) These fish prefer waters ranging from 70 to 83 degrees Fahrenheit and usually stick relatively close to the surface of the water. Though they mostly dwell far out from land, sailfish sometimes venture closer to shore than other members of the billfish family.
Sailfish range in color from dark blue to gray, with a silver or white underbelly. As a type of billfish, sailfish have an elongated upper jaw that's approximately twice as long as the lower jaw, forming a spear. Their dorsal fins resemble sails not only because they run almost the full length of their bodies, but also because their height is considerably greater than the thickness of their bodies. They also have a second, smaller dorsal fin and two anal fins. Fins are typically a blackish-blue color. Indo-Pacific sailfish can reach 11 feet in length and weigh more than 220 pounds. Atlantic sailfish are smaller, typically around 6 feet long but topping out at 10 feet long and about 128 pounds.
Prey and Predators
Both subspecies of sailfish prey mostly on octopus, squid and bony fish. In the Atlantic, fish commonly eaten include tuna, mackerel, needlefish, jacks and halfbeaks; in the Pacific, jacks, anchovies, sardines, triggerfish and ribbonfish are dietary staples. Dolphinfish, also known as mahi-mahi, are a primary predator that feeds on sailfish. Larger predatory fish and some seabirds also eat sailfish. Humans also fish for sailfish, but not often for food; their meat is tough and generally considered undesirable. However, because sailfish are so large and put up such a fight—often taking hours to land—recreational and trophy fishermen seek them out.
Sailfish begin spawning in April, but most of this activity goes on during summer months. Most spawning occurs close to land, the females swimming there slowly with their dorsal fins sticking up above the surface of the water, and one or more males following. A large female can release over 4 million eggs when spawning. Larvae are about 0.125 inches long when they hatch. Within a year sailfish grow to about 4 to 5 feet long.

Jc,s Baja Lobster Thermador
Makes 4 servings
• 2 (1 1/2-lb) live lobsters
• 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
• 1/4 lb mushrooms, trimmed and thinly sliced
• 1/2 teaspoon paprika
• 1/8 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
• 2 tablespoons medium-dry Sherry

1. Plunge lobsters headfirst into an 8-quart pot of boiling salted water*. Loosely cover pot and cook lobsters over moderately high heat 9 minutes from time they enter water, then transfer with tongs to sink to cool.

Whisk together yolks and remaining tablespoon Sherry in a small bowl. Slowly pour remaining 1/2 cup hot cream into yolks, whisking constantly, and transfer YIELD

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. Come by the office here in Cabo and get all the latest up to date fishing report.
