HEADLINES: June 12, 2017:
Well, it was bound to happen Donald Trump and JC go at it in a war of words and threats again. JC spouted: " I don't like your immigration policy"in which Trump screamed: "Yea, I know about JC, he's got that stupid fishing fleet in Cabo"and he has that imbecile Fish Report Boy working for him, and can you imagine, Fish Report Boy asked me for a job, and I laughed the clown out of my office!!
JC says: Look Trump you want trouble, I will give it to you. "I once dropped kicked my Grandmother"she made fried okra!! And I told her I wasn't eating it, at that point she picked up the bowl and threw it in my face. Well that's all it took I roundhouse her and gave her a flying drop kick. Knocked the old women out for a half an hour.
JC screamed: My Great Aunt Winnie, who was an arm wrestling champion in Alaska, I had to teach her a lesson also, the old bat thought she was going to do me a favor and shine my "Wingtip Shoes"Well no one touches JC s Wingtips? I tied her to the bumper of my 64 Rambler and dragged her around the village a few times. "You get my point Trump no one messes with JC"
Fish Report Boy screamed: Just like the Kiss Ass he really is" had to put his 2 cents in, Mr Trump I love everything about you and you will get my vote, is it possible I could work on your campaign"!!
Trump Screamed: "Are you kidding me Fish Report Boy, I've read that trash you do for JC and you call that a fish report? You and JC are both imbeciles!!!! I will buy you and JC out, you wait and see!!!!
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: Warm days and windy conditions but mostly sunny days and hotWell, it wasn't too bad over the last week with some sunny days.
WATER: We have had a lot of cold water pusing into the area and Mostly warm water in our area now on both sides the Pacific and Sea of Cortez side. The temps I noticed on the Tempbreak map was 82 to 88 degrees, which is pretty warm all over. If we could get some decent weather I think the fishing would be off the hook. Please check out the Tempbreak map link below to get a good idea on water temperatures.
BILLFISH: It is getting better over last day or so the Marlin fishing has improved. It has been sporadic with no one place being hot for Marlin, they seem to be spread out all over the place from the 95 to the Old Light House. So they are here but they are spread out all over the place from the Pacific side to Sea of Cortez side.
DORADO: The action for Dorad has dramatically changed over the last couple days and maybe we are going to start to see them show up again in numbers. It has been a long time since we have had any really good Dorado activity so we are really over due and it was nice to see over last 2 days some improvements.
SWORDFISH: Hasn't heard of any caught this week.
WAHOO: I did hear of one Wahoo being caught this past week.
TUNA: A 75LB Tuna was landed and they are around in some areas but you just have to run into them at the right moment. The guys are running out about 5 to 15 miles to get into any sort of Tuna action and way to far for our sportfishers to run. There has been some decent size fish caught if you find them and can get to them without running so far.
INSHORE: Roosters are the hot inshore fish all last week, with some good catches in the Sea of Cortez and just past Whale Head Rock is where the action is starting and carrying on in the gulf. A few boats jigging iron around the Pedregal rocks and landing some Amber Jacks and I think the Yellowtail will start to get better in the next few days. The Sierra fishing is getting better close to shore from Pump House to Margaita rocks and the Panags have been killing the Sierra in front of the Solmar to the Pump House using hootchies, striped bait and rapalas. There has been some Red Snappers caught on live bait in the rocks on the Pacific side.

JC,s Salt-Roasted Baja Whole Red Snapper!!
If you're looking for moist and tender fish, try Salt-Roasted Whole Red Snapper. The crust seals in the juices and flavor while the fish cooks.
1 (3 1/2- to 4-pound) whole Baja Red snapper, cleaned
1 lemon, sliced
4 rosemary sprigs
2 (3-pound) boxes kosher salt
4 egg whites
1. Preheat oven to 400°. Stuff fish with sliced lemons and rosemary.
2. Combine kosher salt, egg whites, and 1/2 cup water in a large bowl. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Spread one-third of the salt mixture on the lined baking sheet. Top with fish; cover with remaining salt mixture.
3. Bake fish 40 to 50 minutes. Crack salt layer with a hammer or meat mallet, and remove. Peel back fish skin; carefully remove meat, discarding skin and bones.
JC,s Lemon Red Snapper with Herbed Butter!!
A fragrant herbed butter and roasted lemon slices complement the sweet, nutty flavor of red snapper for a super-fresh dish. Complete the meal with colorful Sautéed Zucchini and Bell Peppers.
Prep: 9 minutes; Cook: 13 minutes
4 (6-ounce) red snapper or other firm white fish fillets
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh herbs (such as rosemary, thyme, basil, or parsley)
Fresh herb sprigs (optional)

3. Place 1 fillet on top of each pair of lemon slices. Combine salt, paprika, and pepper; sprinkle evenly over fish. Bake at 425° for 13 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
4. While fish bakes, combine reserved lemon rind, butter, and herbs in a small bowl.
5. Place fish and lemon slices on individual serving plates; top each fillet with herbed butter, spreading to melt, if desired. Garnish with herb sprigs, if desired.
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
