HEADLINES: August 7, 2017:
JC screamed: Yes a Taxi! I want to drive one cause Im a talker and I could talk to people all day if I drove taxi. The public needs to know about me? No one knows some of the important things about me, like in 1975 I won the Arkansas State fair hair pulling contest, got 3 handfuls of some bleach blondes hair, I won a $15.00 dollar first prize and a Blue Ribbon. It's stuff like that I want the public to know about me. I am not just a Marlin expert, there is many sides to me, I am a sophisticated individual. People don't know I hung out with the Rat Pack in Vegas and was friends with Frank, Dean, Sammy and the boys. Sammy called me a "Cream Puff"one night cause he stole my song the "Candy Man"and I called him on it. We had a bit of a scuffle and settled it outside. That's the stuff that the people need to know about JC.
Fish Report Boy screamed: The Candy Man?"Stop your lies JC, just stop your lies, you are not the legend you think you are"We all know you now?
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: Well the only way to describe it is really hot and being mid summer in Cabo it is nothing new but we are experiencing a much hotter year than previous summers. I have been here a long time, and this is pretty extreme as far as heat goes. Highs are pushing 100 degrees about every day except for today, as I am writing this report we have some overcast skies and its not as hot as it has been but is really humid today. We don't expect any changes in daytime temperatures so if you're coming to Cabo expect some pretty warm days.
WATER: Water has changed a bit over last week getting cooler. The temps I noticed on the Tempbreak map was 80 to 83 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: Blue Marlin fishing has been hot this past week with some being landed in the 200lb range to 300lbs. The warm water has brought in the Blues but we aren't really complaining as it has been an action filled week for sport fishing in Cabo. There has been like 1 to 3 Blues being hooked ever day over last week. Most of the big Blues were hitting live bait and lures from the 95 spot to the 1150. The Striped Marlin fishing has been much slower due we think, to the really warm water, as the Stripers prefer the water a little cooler than we have right now. Sailfish fishing has been pretty hot also this past week with multiple fish being fought and landed, of course we always like to release any Billfish we land. Every year about this time when the Tuna and Dorado fishing slow lots of the crews on the sportfishing boats will want to kill there catches, including Marlin. Please DO NOT give in to this request and explain the charter company and the crew before you leave the dock that you are not into killing the Marlin. Explain that you want to release any Marlin or Sailfish caught. Please practice CATCH and RELEASE for your kids and grandkids have the same experiences as you and your family now.
DORADO: 2 miles offshore some action for Dorado. Dorado fishing really isn't happening right now and we really aren't sure when it will kick into gear, its basically a hit and miss deal if you want Dorado. As we have been reporting the Dorado fishing hasn't really kicked into gear this year or even last year. There has been some caught this past week, and it is better than last week. Most of the fish caught were smaller ones but they are out there and we are happy about that.
SWORDFISH: Hasn't heard of any caught this week.
WAHOO: Not to many reported over this past week.
TUNA: : A few Tuna caught while we were fishing for Marlin with lures. There was one Tuna landed at around 70lbs but the rest were like football size fish.
INSHORE: Really about the same as last week, lots of Roosters up and arounf the Old Light House. Roosters are still the story if the week if you are inshore fishing. The Old Light House seems to be where the inshore action is happening. So jump into a Panga and head up there you might get in on some smaller game action.

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
