Jc's 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 let's get on with the fishing report for this past week.

Check out this easy yet impressive tuna confit recipe. Confiting the tuna gives it a lovely melting texture – you can serve the fish warm with green beans and a drizzle of balsamic, or cold as the basis of a superior salad niçoise
Sea salt flakes 1 tbsp
Caster sugar ½ tsp
Oregano a few sprigs
Tuna 4 thick steaks
Lemon 1, peeled into 6 strips
Black peppercorns 8
Fennel seeds ½ tsp
Olive oil see notes below
Mix together the salt, sugar and most of the oregano sprigs, and rub all over the tuna steaks. Put the steaks in an ovenproof dish in which they fit fairly snugly. Scatter the lemon peel, peppercorns and fennel seeds on top, cover and leave in the fridge for 2 hours. Take out of the fridge and leave at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Heat the oven to 150C/fan 130C/gas 2. Pour over enough olive oil to just cover the tuna, then cook in the oven for 15 minutes. Take out and leave in the oil for 15 minutes more before serving with the fresh oregano.
JC'S Vodka Cranberry Lemonade:
2 oz vodka
1 demerara sugar cubes
6 whole, fresh cranberries
1 lemon slice, for garnish
2 dashes orange bitters
Lemon wheel, for garnish
Place the sugar cube in a mixing glass and dash the bitters on top of it.
Add the lemon slice and cranberries to the glass and muddle until the cranberry and lemon juice has dissolved the sugar cube.
Add the vodka and 2 ounces of lemonade to the mixing glass. Add ice and stir to incorporate.
Double strain the cocktail into a highball glass. Add ice and top with more lemonade. Stir with your bar spoon to incorporate, and garnish with a lemon wheel.
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.
