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.

From The Admirals Kitchen!
DORADO (MAHI MAHI) WITH CILANTRO
Serves 4 to 6.
2 to 3 pounds mahi mahi
1 large onion, thinly sliced into half-moons
Salt and black pepper
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 or 3 fire-roasted jalapenos, preserved in vinegar (or pickled jalapenos)
1 1/2 to 2 cups of cilantro
1/3 cup lime juice or lemon juice
2 tablespoons white vine vinegar
7 tablespoons olive oil
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cut the fish into serving portions and salt it well. Set it aside.
2. Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil into a saute pan and saute the onions over high heat until they get a little charred on the edges.
3. Find a casserole or lidded pot just large enough to hold all the fish. Pour the lime juice into the pot and lay down half the onions.
4. Put the fish pieces on the onions, then lay the rest of the onions over the fish and drizzle over 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Cover with foil or the lid. Bake for 20-30 minutes, depending on how thick the fish pieces are.
5. Meanwhile, buzz the garlic, jalapenos, white wine vinegar and all but 2 tablespoons of the cilantro in a food processor until it is pureed. Drizzle in the remaining olive oil with the motor running.
6. When the fish is cooked, serve by laying down some of the cilantro sauce and topping each plate with some onions. The fish goes on the onions, and you can top with a little more sauce and the remaining chopped cilantro.
Lipsmackingly sweet-and-sour, the Cosmopolitan cocktail of vodka, cranberry, orange liqueur and citrus is a good time in a glass. Perfect for a party.
45ml lemon vodka
15ml triple sec
30ml cranberry juice
10ml lime juice
For the garnish
orange zest, or a lime wedge on the rim of the glass.
1. Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
2. To make the garnish: hold a 3cm round piece of orange zest about 10cm above your cosmo and very carefully wave it over a lit match or lighter flame. Bend the outer edge of the zest in towards the flame so that the orange oils are released, then drop the zest into your drink.
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.
