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 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 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 is still green and cold in some areas, and then other areas its really blue and warmer. It has settled down since we had our storm (Tropical Storm Erick) pass by, but really that wasnít anything major. It did stir up the water for a couple days but now we are back to normal.
WEATHER: The weather has been really good with sunny days and cooler nights. Highs have been 95 to 100 degrees in day time and at night it has been dropping to ladder 60,s to low 70,s. We have had some afternoon breezes which can make for choppy seas but really not to bad. Some nights I have noticed a nice breeze from the Pacific which keeps things cooled down.
BILLFISHING: Here we go, well the fishing has changed directions and we have started to see the bite get busy at the 1150 in the San Jose area aslo we did see some good Marlin action at the 95 area in the Sea of Cortez. On Wednesday the 17 we had five boats out, and we went to Jamie Banks, on the Pacific side, about 16 miles from Cabo where we did very well. Out of the 5 boats we had up there, we caught 10 marlin, 9 Dorado good size and 2 Wahoo with one weighing 75lbs. The marlin are hitting lures and live bait, the dorado lures live bait, and slowed trolled ballyhoo.
Some other fleets did well with Marlin this past week with one report of a 350lb Black Marlin. So all in all it was a really productive week for Marlin.
BAIT: Bait is the standard 3.00 dollars a piece and there has been plenty around.
DORADO: We had a good week with Dorado with lots of good sized fish being caught through out the fishing grounds. Reports of Dorado were from Gordo Banks to Jamie Banks on the Pacific and that covers a lot of our fishing area here in Cabo. One Dorado caught was reported to weigh 55lbs and there were a few in the 25 to 35 pound range. Most Dorado were caught using cedar plugs and live bait.
INSHORE: The Panga fishing is picking up pretty good with some nice Rooster Fish caught close to shore this past week. The fishing from Grey Rock to the Light House has been pretty good. The Roosters were caught trolling live bait right out of the surf line. There were also quite a few smaller Dorado caught slow trolling live bait about 1 to 2 miles off shore.
TUNA: Some of the Tuna were caught in the 1150 area and one Tuna was 220lbs. The rest of the Tuna that we caught and I heard about were smaller than that with most like football sized Tuna. So it hasnít been that bad this past week. Most of the fish were hitting cedar plugs. Not really any large Tuna schools around mostly small schools and random strikes.
WAHOO: We did get 2 this week and one was 75lbs.
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.
