Jc Sportfishing Weekly Fish Report.
As the Admiral Seas It
Fishing Report: 3/16/14 to 3/23/14
Stop by Our Office for up to Date Fishing Report.

The spring breakers are still here giving everyone a nice show down on Medeno Beach. This will pretty much wrap up after Easter and then well have to wait till next year for the parade of young people who flock the area to return.

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. Well lets get on with the fishing report for this past week.
WEATHER: The weather has been really good all week with basically a little warmer than normal temperatures. The wind has still been blowing in the afternoons and does have some effect on the fishing but it has tailed of some compared to what it was over last 2 weeks. The heat is coming early this year I can feel it some days this as we were close to hitting ninety a few days over the last 10 days.
WATER: The water temperature has warmed some with temperatures in the low 70,s to mid 70,s in most areas and this flood of warm water is going to help spark the Dorado and Tuna bite again. This rush of warmer water in the area is a little early but we expect fishing to get better because of it.
TUNA: We ran out like 28 miles looking for the Tuna a couple days ago and were looking for Porpoise or any sign of birds but we really never found anything. I am not sure if we weren’t out far enough or what but no sign of Tuna just a lot of flying fish around.
BILLFISH: The Bill fishing has been off and on all week with good days and bad days. It seems the 95 spot and 1150 area are the hotter spots this past week. Most fish are being landed on slow trolled ballyhoo and a few on lures and live bait. Lately to run up the pacific is tough due to wind and swells. I understand the bite up there has been off and on also but it’s a rough boat ride to get up there and at least heading to the 95 spot and 1150 area is a little calmer and not so rough this time of year.
DORADO: Well we have got a surprise with the warmer water moving in and I was really under the assumption that the Dorado bite was gone for awhile but I really think it could turn around over the next week or so if this water stays in the area. There has been report of a few nice sized Dorado being landed but not lots of numbers. The fish that were caught, were in the area from the 1150 to the Light House and were caught on lures.
INSHORE: The inshore fishing has slowed down some There is still some Sierra around and some good size ones up to 10lbs and there being caught on live bait rigged ballyhoo and we are getting the best results around the Pump House. Some guys are running down riggers at around 100ft rigged with ballyhoo and then slow trolled for Sierras. The Snapper bite has been good off the Pedregal Rocks and up towards Ranch Migrano. We have been pitching live bait in the rocks and this has been effective. Yellowtail has slowed a bit with one good day and one bad day and we never know what to expect as far as the Yellowtail especially with warmer water moving into the area. The best results for the Yellowtail has been jigging iron off of the Solmar all the way up to Sunset Beach hitting the low spots and rock piles.

WAHOO:A few Wahoo being reported landed by using Rapalas and Jet heads. There has been a few in the 30lbs to 50lbs range being taken this past week.

Wahoo Tacos
Tacos have been part of Mexico's culinary heritage for more than 100 years. These folded tortillas can be stuffed with any number of fillings — with each Mexican state claiming stake to their own. Fish tacos are said to come from Baja California, Mexico's northernmost state. While the original fish taco was made with deep-fried fish, this recipe — made with sautéed fish — is a delicious and fresh version. This recipe is easily doubled, which makes it a great dish to make when entertaining a crowd.


  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups red-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ancho chile powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup lightly packed fresh cilantro leaves, chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 1 jalapeños, stemmed and chopped
  • 1 pound wahoo, cut into 4 pieces
  • Salt, to taste
  • 8 fresh corn tortillas
  • Mexican crema, homemade or store-bought
  • Fresh tomato salsa
  • 2 limes, cut into quarters
  • Cilantro sprigs, for garnish

  • DIRECTIONS:First marinate the onion. Put the onion in a small bowl and pour in enough red-wine vinegar to cover it well. Set aside for at least 30 minutes or up to several weeks. Next, pour the olive oil into a small bowl and add the ancho chile powder, oregano, cumin, chopped cilantro, and jalapeño. Mix well. Place the fish on a dish and pour the marinade over it, making sure to coat the fish well on both sides. Allow to marinate for 20 minutes. Heat a nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat. Remove the fish from the marinade and place it in the hot pan (there is no need to add more oil). Season the fish with salt. Cook the fish for 4 minutes undisturbed, then turn over, and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and flake the fish into the pan with a fork, making sure to mix in all the marinade that has stuck to the bottom of the pan. Check for seasoning and add more salt if necessary. Set aside. Place four of the tortillas on a plate and sandwich them between 2 slightly dampened sheets of paper towel. Microwave on high for 45 seconds. Place the warm tortillas in a towel-lined basket or plate and cover. Repeat with the remaining tortillas. To assemble the tacos, place a heaping spoonful of the marinated flaked fish onto the center of a tortilla. Top with the marinated onions. Serve accompanied by Mexican crema and salsa. Garnish with lime wedges and cilantro sprigs
Wahoo Information
In most parts of its range, the wahoo is a highly prized sport fishing catch. It reaches a good size, is often available not too far from land, and is a very good fighter on light to medium tackle. It is known in sports fishing circles for the speed and strength of its first run. The aggressive habits and razor-sharp teeth of the wahoo can be of considerable annoyance when targeting larger gamefish, however, such as tuna or marlin.
Its body is elongated and covered with small, scarcely visible scales; the back is an iridescent blue, while the sides are silvery, with a pattern of irregular vertical blue bars and have razor sharp teeth. These colors fade rapidly at death. The mouth is large, and both the upper and lower jaws have a somewhat sharper appearance than those of king or Spanish mackerel.
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]
