See you all in Cabo - JC.
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.

Crispy Fish Burger

Crispy Fish Burger with Shoestring Fries
4 small fillets of white fish - (I used haddock) weighing approx 350g (12.3oz) altogether
50 g plain (all purpose) flour
2 eggs - lightly beaten
150 g breadcrumbs - (either fresh or shop bought – panko breadcrumbs are good)
pinch salt and pepper
½ tsp paprika
2 tbsp vegetable oil
4 toasted brioche rolls
8 lettuce leaves –
3 medium sized potatoes
Vegetable oil for deep-frying
Lemon garlic mayo
100 ml of good quality mayonnaise
1 tbsp of lemon juice
1 small clove of minced garlic
2 tbsp of chopped chives
1. Preheat oven to 190C/375F.
2. Make the lemon garlic mayo by mixing all of the mayo ingredients together.
3. Half fill a deep, heavy-based pan with vegetable oil and heat – in preparation for cooking the skinny fries. Use a mandoline or food chopper to ‘julienne' the potatoes (no need to peel). Place the julienne potatoes on some kitchen roll and pat to remove excess water.
4. Put the flour, beaten egg and breadcrumbs on 3 large plates. Mix the salt and pepper into the flour. Mix the paprika into the breadcrumbs. Dip each piece of fish in turn into the flour, egg and finally the breadcrumbs, shaking off any excess as you go. Heat the oil in the frying pan, then fry the fish burgers on a medium heat for about 3 mins on each side, until golden and crisp (Note 1). Finish them off in the oven for about 5 minutes
5. Whilst the fish burgers are finishing off in the oven, deep fry the skinny fries for 1 ½-2 minutes until golden brown (check the oil is hot enough first by dropping a couple of fries in. If they sizzle and rise straight to the top it's hot enough). Be careful when placing the skinny fries in the oil as the oil may boil over. You may need to cook the fries in a couple of batches to prevent this. Drain the fries and season with salt. If you do need to cook more than one batch, I've found it best to drain your first batch and leave them in a bowl lined with kitchen roll. Then throw them back in the hot oil for 20 seconds before serving. Trying to keep the fries warm in the oven can either overcook and burn them, or make them go a bit soft.
6. Place the bottom half of the each roll onto a plate, top with lettuce, add the fish burger and finish with some lemon garlic mayo before topping with the other half of the bun. Serve with the skinny fries.
2 1/2 oz. rum
3 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. coconut cream
Start with the rum. Then combine with unsweetened pineapple juice (you can sub in 3 ounces crushed or whole pineapple), and coconut cream in a blender. Blend on high with a cup or so of crushed ice, or 5 or 6 ice cubes. Pour into a tall glass. Garnish with whatever you've got.
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.
