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.

Tuna Sashimi Recipe With Daikon and Ginger
This is just one version in an endless series of variations that is Japanese sashimi, or raw fish. Only use the highest-grade tuna for this recipe -- although you can use any kind of tuna.
- 1 pound sushi-grade tuna
- 4-inch piece of daikon radish
- 2-inch piece of fresh ginger (peeled)
- 3 teaspoons sake wine
- 1 1/2 tablespoons mirin (sweet cooking sake)
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1 1/2 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon dashi granules
Make the Dipping Sauce
1. Gather the ingredients.
2. Add the mirin and the sake to a small pot and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat and add the soy sauce, the tamari sauce and the dashi granules (these are dried bonito flakes). Mix well and let this come to room temperature.
Prepare the Plates
1. Square off the daikon with a very sharp knife, then slice it into very thin sheets either with a mandoline or a knife. How thin? As thin as you can slice them. Now stack those sheets and slice again into very thin sticks. Toss them all into a bowl of ice water and make sure they're all separated. Gently wring out and dry the daikon, then arrange some on each plate.
2. Use the finest grater you have -- a microplane if you have one -- and grate the ginger, then mound it into little cones. Put a cone of ginger on each plate.
Prepare the Tuna
1. With your sharpest knife, cut the tuna into a block. You want to ultimately cut thin slices against the grain of the meat, so look for that grain as you shape the larger block (use the trim for tuna tartare, recipe linked below).
2. Slice the thin strips off the tuna block with your sharpest knife. Do this with one motion; start with the part of the knife's edge closest to the handle and then draw it back toward you in a smooth motion. Do not saw the tuna.
3. Arrange the fish on the plate over the daikon. Garnish with something green; edible chrysanthemum leaves are traditional, but you could use flat-leaf parsley, very finely sliced green onion, finely sliced cucumber or similar greens.
Serve and Eat
1. To eat, mix a little of the grated ginger into the soy sauce, then pick up the fish with chopsticks or a fork. Drag the tuna through the dipping sauce and eat. Eat the daikon in between bites and finish it with the soy sauce.
2. It is traditional to drink sake with sashimi. You could also drink a pilsner beer or a crisp white such as a pinot grigio or Chenin blanc.
Sip our refreshing blueberry mojito when the sun starts to shine. This easy cocktail can be mixed up in minutes with a handful of ingredients.

Put the blueberries, lemons and sugar in a jug and muddle. Bruise the mint leaves and add them to the jug with lots of ice. Pour over the rum and sparkling water and stir together.
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.
