I am a 3 time Golden Glove lightweight champion, 2 times Arkansas Midget Wrestling State champion, Branson, Missouri Blue Hair senior citizens' arm wrestling second runner up. That's Right JC laughingly said: "I did coldcok Boxcar Willie when I was getting his autograph"He called me: "a little Twirp"!! I had a run in with Bobbie Vinton also, and I had to teach him a lesson, he stole my song: "Red Roses for a Blue Lady"I caught Bobby in Vegas and threw him down a flight of stairs in the old Trpoicana Hotel. I was playing piano like a lounge lizard back then. JC shouted: "Tell Fish Report Boy, I'm Waiting, Bring it on"

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: Big problem all week except for today it has finally died down. WIND, WIND, WIND really the major story all of this past week as it has pretty much wiped out our fishing week last week and now its calm. Who knows? It was so windy at some points that it actually became dangerous to be out there fishing for some of the smaller boats.

WATER: Still quite the contrast of water temperatures from Pacific side to the East Cape area. I am thinking maybe the wind blew some cooler water towards San Jose over the last week cause we have been getting a good wind from the north all week. There is a huge difference in the water temperatures on the East Cape compared to closer to Cabo on the Pacific side where there is like a 10 degree difference in water. East Cape some areas are 84 degrees and here close to Cabo on the Pacific side it went down to 64 degrees and colder in some spots, so quite the contrast and this will affect the fishing in both areas as we will be catching something completely different from them boys on the East Cape.

BILLFISH: Well the Marlin fishing has definitely been affected by the wind this past week. Not only the Marlin, but every other species has been slowed down by the gusty winds. Not any big number of Marlin being landed but a few from the 95 spot to Grey Rock, with most being landed on live bait and lures. Really nothing like the week before when we even caught some good numbers of Marlin and Tuna. Luckily the wind has died down and it's pretty calm and overcast today, Sunday the 17th of June. Not sure what is going on with the overcast today.

DORADO: Very slow as they just haven't shown up this year yet and I am starting to wonder if the commercial fishing boats are raping the Dorado. I said this last week, but it's worth leaving in the report this week also: "If the USA would stop buying illegal fish caught in Mexico that would help a lot as it is not legal to net Dorado in Mexico because it is a sportfishing and not listed as a commercial species. It seems as long as there are buyers then this will continue to happen and it seems the authorities just look the other way since they are getting their cut". I wanted to repeat this as I think this is one of the problems of the fish not showing in numbers that we are used to here in Cabo

SWORDFISH: Havent heard of any caught this week.

WAHOO: I haven't heard of any Wahoo this past week.

TUNA: Tuna fishing has slowed big time with most being caught tight to the beach and they are in the Football size range using king busters and cedar plugs. If you try from the Light House all the way to San Jose you might run into some decent Tuna bites, but I don't think you will get any real big fish mostly all about the same size.

INSHORE: It has been slow as not to many Pangas going out due to windy conditions, but they have seen some action with Roosters from Gray Rock to Chileno Bay. If you slow trolled live bait you will see action on Roosters s one of our boats caught 8 Rooster Fish last week using these techniques. The Jack Crevall has been biting pretty good, really not that great to eat but fun to catch.

JC, s Oysters Rockefellers Recipe
• 1 pound butter
• 1 rib celery, finely chopped
• 2 bunches green onions, finely chopped, about 2 cups
• 1 bunch parsley, fine chopped
• 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
• 1/2 to 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
• 1/2 teaspoon Pernod, Anisette, or Herbsaint
• 1 1/4 cups seasoned bread crumbs
• 4 dozen oysters in their shells
• rock salt
1. Melt the butter in a large skillet or sauté pan and add the celery, scallions and parsley. Saute for 5 minutes, then add the Worcestershire and Tabasco. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes. Add the Herbsaint or Pernod and bread crumbs; cook for 5 minutes more. Remove the pan from the heat and transfer the mixture to a bowl.
2. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour, until cold but not firmly set.

3. Shuck oysters. Discard the top shells; scrub and dry the bottom shells.
4. Drain the oysters. Arrange several oyster shells in baking pans lined with about 1 inch of rock salt.
5. Place 1 oyster in each shell. Heat oven to 375°.
6. Remove the chilled buttery crumb topping from the refrigerator and beat it with an electric mixer to evenly blend the butter and fluff it a bit; transfer the mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a large plain tip.
7. Pipe a tablespoon of the mixture onto each oyster, then bake in a 375° oven for 5 to 8 minutes.
8. Allow about 6 oysters for each guest. If possible, bake these in batches of 6 or 8, so each person will have a hot serving.

JC,s Southern Baja Fried Oysters !!
This Southern Fried Oysters Recipe is a classic. In early 19th century America, oysters were cheap and plentiful and eaten mainly by the working class, even for breakfast. I ate them on cold autumn mornings on Long Island before a day of digging clams, or on a Sunday in winter before a day of football. Since then, oysters have become expensive, but now farmed oysters, which are actually good for the environment, are becoming more plentiful and this is bringing the price down -- making a hearty breakfast of fried oysters in cornmeal, rashers of bacon and some hot coffee more than just a memory. The key to success here is to use good bacon, strong coffee -- and small oysters.
• 1/2 pound good bacon
• 1 cup medium-grind cornmeal
• 1 tablespoon cayenne (less if you'd like)
• 1 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
• 2 large eggs1 pound small oysters, in their liquor (their own juices)
1. Fry the bacon over medium-low heat until crispy and let drain on paper towels.
2. Meanwhile, mix the cornmeal, cayenne and black pepper together in a bowl.
3. In another bowl, whisk the eggs and 2-3 tablespoons of the oyster liquor together.
4. Pick through the oysters to make sure no bits of shell are on them, then dip each one into the egg mixture and then into the cornmeal mixture.
5. Fry over medium heat until golden brown, about 4-5 minutes.

6. You will need to do this in batches so you don't crowd the pan. Drain the oysters on paper towels with the bacon.
7. Serve at once with reserved bacon, hot black coffee, maybe some hash browns and an egg or two. Finish with a piece of fruit and you have yourself a breakfast that'll carry you through to dinner!

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. www.jcsportfishing.com http://youtu.be/tSXN6pifQyQ
