Jc Sportfishing Weekly Fish Report.
As the Admiral Seas It
Fishing Report: 3/12/13 to 3/19/13
Now is the time to come to Cabo as the fishing is still really good and not only that there is some really good deals on airfares lately as Spirit Airlines has some really good deals. You might want to look into this and also if you are in LA or San Diego you might think about flying out of Tijuana as the rates are much cheaper for TJ to Cabo, just something to think about.
Jc 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 has 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 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. Lets get on with the report for this past week.
WATER: The water temperature has been up and down all week. It seems to change 4 to 6 degrees and is green in a lot of areas. The temperature even dropped to 65 degrees today in some areas. Choppy seas in the afternoons and some good size swells also didnít help matters either.
WEATHER: Really the weather has been pretty nice with some warm days and cool nights. I think today was in mid to ladder 80,s and hot. On the ocean the wind has been kicking up in the afternoons to make things sloppy for fishing. It has though been consisently warm with nice nights.
BILLFISHING: Marlin fishing has been down the past week. The Marlin seemed to have moved to Gordo Banks area, and also the 1150 area was reporting a lot of Striped Marlin but they were really hard to catch. It was really hard to get them to take any sort of baits. Maybe there was an abundance of bait in the area that they were feeding on and most likely were full. We did manage to catch a few but nothing like previous weeks. The Striped Marlin are around but it has been hit and miss.
BAIT: Bait is the standard 3.00 dollares a piece and there has been plenty around.
DORADO: The fishing for Dorado has been really down this past week. A few were taken up at the Jamie Banks, seems like that cold water has made them take off for some warm water somewhere. Maybe 25% of the boats that went out either caught some Dorado or got into a bite while fishing for Striped Marlin. We did get a few but not much to brag about.
INSHORE: The inshore fishing has been really good from the Arch to the Pump House, lots of Sierras being taken on small Rapalas and Hootchies. The Yellowtail bite was really hot then some warm water moved in and screwed it up. They must have scattered to the cold water. Good Red snapper and Grouper fishing reported up around Ranch Migrano, casting bait into the rocks has been productive. You need to watch out for swells rolling in as this could be a problem. Try and go on a calmer day when waves are smaller. Surf has been big.
TUNA: Well what a difference a week makes. The Tuna fishing has been just crazy with fish being caught from the Sea of Cortez to Saint Jamie Banks on the Pacific. Most of the fish being landed are from 10 to 30 pounds with some going as high as 70 pounds. The Tuna have been hitting about everything thrown at them from striker kings, cedar plugs and spreader bars. The wind has been up most afternoons but that didnt seem to bother the Tuna bite. Wow big difference compared to a week ago. Hope the Tuna bite continues through out coming week.
WAHOO: I havenít heard of any Wahoo this past week.
BEWARE: Remember if your not renting charter boats from companies who have been established in Cabo for the past 20 years ( Jc sport Fishing, Pisces Sport Fishing, Minervas, Redrum, Picante Fleet) you might have problems. There are many sportfishing fleets on the internet who are really not established business, who are operating illegally. Lots of these outfits are renting you a boat they have never even looked at and donít even know where you would board the boat, leaving you the task of trying to find the boat. They donít even have an office you can go and confirm your charter boat. You do not want to spend a day walking around looking for the boat and where you board. 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. Lots of vendors renting boats in the hotels are not reputable and donít care about your interest and care more about a commission . 75% of the Cabo Fishing websites on Google are not even in business anymore or might be just brokers who donít have an office in Cabo. Some of the Google websites are misleading and not established .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 dont want to rent boats from vendors in the streets and you do not want to book through shady websites offering you the world. You need to go to the fishing fleet office, while in Cabo and book your boat. 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 fishing license. These are just a few things to consider when booking your charter boat. We will be talking more about this in next weeks fishing report. Until next time good fishing and we hope to see you in Cabo soon.
