Jc Sportfishing Weekly Fish Report.
As the Admiral Seas It
Fishing Report: 3/3/14 to 3/9/14
Stop by Our Office for up to Date Fishing Report.

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 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. Lets get on with the report for this past week.

WEATHER: A little more wind in the afternoons but it really hasn’t changed much in the last 2 weeks. It has been actually a little warmer than normal for this time of year. There really hasn’t been a winter here to speak of with temperatures above average. I would say today it was pushing 85 to 90 degrees in the day time and lows in to the ladder 50,s to mid 60,s

WATER: The water temperature has got cold again after last week pockets of warm water came into the area. This week isn’t like that with cold water moving in and shutting down the Dorado bite we had last week.
TUNA: Really about the same as last week very slow for Tuna unless you run offshore 20 to 30 miles. Most of the fish being caught are 15lbs to 30lbs and are caught using cedar plugs and striker kings. It isn’t really good for Tuna right now unless you run way offshore and get lucky to run into a school of fish.

Pacific Spiny Lobster Recipe


4 (1 1/2-pound) spiny lobsters
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons chopped fresh garlic
4 ounces chopped fresh herbs of your choice (we like to use Italian parsley, basil, thyme, tarragon and a bit of rosemary)
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 stick (1/4-pound) butter, cut in 8 pieces
1 cup clarified butter
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
8 lemon wedges


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Preheat the grill to high.

Split lobsters; butterfly from the top and remove intestines. Rinse head area in cold water to remove any waste matter.

In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, and all of the garlic and chopped herbs. Set aside.

Brush lobsters lightly with remaining oil and grill for approximately 5 minutes, meaty side down. Turn halfway through for grill marking and even cooking. Remove lobsters from grill, and place on a sheet pan, meaty side up. Coat with the herb and garlic mixture and season with salt and pepper. Place 2 pieces of butter on each lobster tail and put in the oven for approximately 10 minutes.

In a small bowl, mix the clarified butter mixed with the lemon juice. Drizzle over lobster as a sauce. Garnish with lemon wedges.

Pacific Spiny Lobster Native to Los Cabos
Let's get this over with at the start: Spiny lobsters are not the same thing as a New England or European homard lobster. Biologically, they are only distant cousins, and in the kitchen, spiny lobsters are a bit tougher and are not as rich-tasting as a Maine lobster.
But that doesn't mean spiny lobsters are not delicious delicacies all their own. They are a rare treat in California, gathered in traps or by hand by divers and sold live in tanks. This makes the U.S. spiny lobster fishery a "best choice" if you are eager to eat only sustainable seafood.
The same can be said for lobsters taken in Baja, Mexico and Australia.
Sadly, spiny lobster stocks in the Caribbean are being overfished, so avoid them if you can.
From an eating standpoint, most of the meat in a spiny lobster is in its tail. Unlike New England lobsters, spinies lack claws, which is too bad because I like the claw meat in a Maine lobster best of all.
Spiny lobsters go a long way toward making up for this by housing an enormous amount of meat in their bodies -- there's an especially yummy chunk at the base of each antenna. Spiny lobsters, pound for pound, have more meat in their bodies than New England lobsters do. That means you will do well to buy whole, live spiny lobsters if you can find them.
Spiny lobster tails are traditionally grilled, basted with butter. They are also excellent steamed and roasted. Be sure to get the thin little strips of meat from the tail flippers!
If you get the whole lobster, make lobster stock out of the body and legs -- once you've picked the body meat out.
When doing that, know that pretty much everything inside the body is edible except for the lungs, which are grayish and feathery and attached to the flanks of the critter, the sand sac between the eyes, and anything tube-like or crunchy. You can eat the tomalley, but if you do don't make a habit of it -- it's like a liver, and is where the lobster stores toxins. The coral or roe is excellent.
What do you do with the body meat? Lobster Thermidor springs to mind, as does lobster salad or lobster sauce for pasta. The possibilities are endless.
When buying a spiny lobster, look for a lively one. Never buy a dead lobster that has not been frozen! Enzymes in the lobster rot the meat very quickly. When buying frozen tails, look for ones that have been vacuum-sealed: They will last up to a year that way.
BILLFISH: Well the Striped Marlin fishing still has stayed strong up and around the Golden Gate area on the pacific side and we have been making bait up there in the mornings and getting some nice size Sardines. The fish are at about 160ft and we are drifting with big egg sinkers and we are catching lot of fish that way also when they surface we are pitching live baits to them and getting some exciting action. The 1150 and 95 spots have producing marlin also over this past week as I have heard of multiple reports of fish in those areas.

DORADO: Well last week Dorado fishing isn’t anything like it was last week as we had some warm water in the area and the Dorado were back I am sorry to say the Dorado fishing is over for the season as I haven’t heard of any reports of Dorado this past week and I am thinking the water is just to cold now for them.
INSHORE: The inshore fishing has been very good for Yellowtail with fish being caught around 7lbs to 25lbs with good numbers from Solmar up to Ranch Migrano. Most of the fish are being caught jigging iron with some being landed on rapalas and down rigging live bait, really the key to catching good numbers of Yellowtail is having the proper electronics and finding the rock piles and low spots.
The Sierra fishing has remained pretty good in front of the Light House and all the way up to the Pump House as we are catching the fish on striped bait and hootchies and landing some nice size fish this past week. The Grouper fishing has been good off of Sunset Beach jigging iron and fishing cut bait and remember when your fishing Grouper you need to use heavy line and try and get them out of the rocks by reeling fast otherwise there gone.
WAHOO: This week a slowed Wahoo bite reported compared to last week. I haven’t heard of any reports this week.
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 dont 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 fishing license. These are just a few things to consider when booking your charter boat. We will be talking more about this in 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. [ame][/ame]
