Marlin fishing has slowed this week, a few off the Light House on live bait.
We caught: 4 marlins on Monday and 1 on Tuesday.
Still a few around, also in the Light House area. Most of the fish have moved out due to the cold water.
No reports of any tuna this week.
Some starting to show at Solmar and the Light House on live bait small fish. Few more week should start happening.
Goo sierras at Los Arcos on ballyhoo, live bait and hoochies.
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.

Mexican Baked White Fish in Cilantro Sauce
"This mixture of orange juice, soy sauce, and garlic gives this marinade a wonderful taste."
- 1 large bunch of cilantro
- 1 small onion
- 3 cloves of fresh garlic
- 3 tablespoons of real butter
- 2 cups (1/2 liter) of Mexican crema or sour cream
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 4 tablespoons freshly-squeezed Mexican lime juice
- 2 1/2 pounds (a little over 1 kilo) whitefish filets (tilapia, grouper, sole, swai, etc.)
1. Turn your oven on to 375F / 190C so that it can preheat while you are preparing the ingredients.
2. Wash the cilantro; chop off and discard the roots. Shake cilantro vigorously (or run it through a salad spinner) to eliminate as much water as possible. Chop it, both stems and leaves together. Set aside some whole leaves to use as a garnish on the finished dish, if you like. Chop the onion and garlic. Dice a little of the onion, if you wish, and place it with the reserved cilantro for garnish.
3. Melt the butter in a medium-sized skillet. Sauté the chopped onion and garlic in the butter for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until the onion is translucent, but not browned.
4. Place the sautéed onions and garlic, the cream, the salt, the lime juice, and the chopped cilantro into a blender. Process until you have a soft green sauce.
5. Lightly grease a glass or metal baking dish. Place the white fish fillets in the dish in a single layer. Pour the sauce over the filets. Move each filet slightly so that some of the sauce gets in under the fish, between the filet and the baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for about 25 minutes. Baking time will vary according to the thickness of the filets; watch your dish closely so that the fish does not overcook. Fish is done when it can be easily flaked with a fork.
6. Take your delicious fish in cilantro sauce out of the oven and use a spatula to dish it on to individual plates. Adorn each serving with a little of the reserved cilantro and onion, if you like. Serve your fish with white or red rice or boiled potatoes.
The cosmo became almost ubiquitous in the '90s thanks to the TV show Sex and the City, but this spin on the martini remains just as tasty today as when Carrie Bradshaw made it famous.
- 1.5 oz citrus vodka
- 1 oz Cointreau
- .5 oz lime juice
- .25 oz cranberry juice
Build all ingredients in a shaker tine with ice and shake. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with lime wheel or zest.
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.
