Fishing Report: 7/21/14 to 7/27/14

YOU LIKE SAILFISH ACTION!! WE GOT IT FOR YOU!!

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. Well lets get on with the fishing report for this past week.

WEATHER: Well its hot and humid no doubt and during the middle of this past week we had an early morning storm roll in around 7.15 am in the morning onThursday and it was pretty strong with winds up to 50 miles and hour. We got quite a bit of rain from the storm which made everything a mess through out the day. The lights were knocked out in different areas of Cabo and I know that in El Tezal area the lights were off all day. I know that the port captain didclose down the port that day but really by Friday everything was back to normal again.

WATER: According to Tembreak the water on the pacific side has cooled off  a bit compared to last week. When I say cool off I mean maybe a degree or two not to much really. Still the water is in the mid 80,s on pacific side and higher on the Sea of Cortez side.Go to Tempbreak.com to check out map. http://www.tempbreak.com/index.php?&cwregion=cb

TUNA: The Tuna fishing has been super good with lots of nice Tuna from 30lb to100lbs. Most fish being caught at the horseshoe and are being caught on cedar plug, king busters and live bait. Some guys have been using the kite and spreader bars with good results.

BILLFISH: Well guys the Billfishing has been off the hook we are catching Striped Marlin, Blue Marlin and lots of Sailfish. Most of the Marlin has been caught from the Light House to San Jamie 1 to 8 miles offshore and the fish seem to be taking everything live bait, ballyhoo and lures. Lots of Blues in the 250lb to 300lbs range are being caught pretty consistently over this past week. The one thing I am seeing which ispretty sad is that a lot of the people are killing the small Blues and Sailfish and not releasing them. Do not allow the crews of your charter boat to talk you into killing these fish because what they do is sell the meat for very little and it is a huge conservational waste. They should be let go to see another day and an  . . . . Read the complete JC’s Sportfishing Weekly Fish Report at LosCabosGuide.com

From the Admirals Kitchen – Dorado With Cilantro

Spend any time in Baja California and you will soon learn that the Mexicans know how to cook seafood; it ain’t all enchiladas and ground beef. I caught the dorado (also known as mahi mahi or dolphinfish) in the Sea of Cortez, so I thought it only appropriate to make a Mexican dish with it.

GORDO BANKS PANGAS Fish Report July 25, 2014

GORDO BANKS PANGAS San Jose del Cabo Fish Report July 25, 2014
Anglers –

Katy_Steve_Holm_TunaWe are now in the later part of the month of July, this is always a warm time of year, very humid, muggy, days are long and tropical weather can rapidly change overnight. Crowds are a bit below average this month, perhaps the great fishing now being found off of Sothern California is a factor, as many anglers are taking advantage of their local bite, where yellowtail, bluefin tuna, yellowfin tuna and yellowtail are all providing epic action.

This past week the highlight for the San Jose del Cabo sportfishing fleet was the yellowfin tuna bite that developed north of Vinormama, some 20 to 25 miles north of Puerto Los CabosMarina, a bit further than what normal panga or local cruiser charters travel on a regular basis. We could see fuel surcharges soon, if this continues. This is the same fishing grounds where the East Cape fleet has been concentrated on and they are located closer to these grounds than Cabo fleets. The key has been the availability of live sardinas, which are being found schooling near LosFrailes. Anglers were drift fishing with these baits and hooking into yellowfin tuna in the 25 to 45 lb. class. This area where the fleet is finding these fish is very close to shore, so close that triggerfish are thick and skipjack are also out numbering the tuna. With persistence and the proper baitfish, charters were able to land, one to five of these yellowfin per morning. Rigging withforty pound main line spliced to 40 or 50 lb. fluorocarbon leader material has been the most productive technique.

Dorado have been found more spread out, the majority being juvenile sized fish, but there are some much larger fish mixed in, bulls weighing up to 50 lb. were reported, though no big numbers, trolling larger baitfish such as bolito was one method than was producing alarger grade of dorado.

Open water trolling saw a mix ofbillfish, actually last week there was sailfish, striped, black and blue marlin caught from local waters, again no big numbers, but these gamefish are present and an offshore grand slam could happen on any given day.

Ocean conditions are very warm, averaging 85 to 87 degrees, even warmer further offshore, this is the time of year where charters do not need to travel very far offshore to find pelagicgamefish species. Winds were relatively mild most days, with the exception of Thursday, when a tropical squall flared up, moving in from the east and closing charter operations for the morning, not before many charters had already launching into what appeared to be moderate conditions, only to have the breeze switch and turn this squall into a major situation for an hour or two, all boats had to return as quickly as possible to the Marina, but seas became extremely rough quickly, wind gusts of 40 to  . . . Read the complete Gordo Banks Pangas Fishing Report at LosCabosGuide.com

The Blues Have Come to Visit 

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 have and do a few tournaments each year and can cater to fisherman who might be interested in tournament fishing. Well lets get on with the fishing report for this past week.

WEATHER: This week it has been more just plain hot compared to last week where it was really humid. I am not saying the humidly is gone but it has been pretty clear and more of a dry hot than a humid hot. We are getting a breeze in the evenings and it has helped to cool things off but it is still hot and you need the air conditioner to sleep right.

WATER: Please check out the tempbreak map as it seems like plenty of warm water around the whole bottom part of the baja peninsula. If you see the map please notice all the water in the 80,s with some cooler temperatures close to shore on the pacific side but when I say cool I am talking in the low 80,s with some areas on the Sea of Cortez side pushing 85 to 86 degrees. So basically we are in the zone for continued good fishing according to the temperatures as this is a great indicator of how the fishing will be this coming week as long as no storms around. Go to Tempbreak.com to check out map. http://www.tempbreak.com/index.php?&cwregion=cb

TUNA: The Tuna fishing has been much better but the Tuna boats are still out there just not as many as last week. I t seems there is a lot of little schools of Tuna and most of the fish are in the 10lb to 20lb range. If you find the Porpoise you will find the Tuna and then if you use spreader bars with squid, king busters and cedar plugs you will catch fish and fill the cooler. We are running aways offshore to run into the Tuna normally 10 to 25 miles offshore.

BILLFISH: The Marlin fishing has been excellent over this past week. Lots of big Blue Marlin being caught with most being in the 200lb to 300lb range but there has been some exceptions as there were reports of  . . . . Read the complete JC’s Sportfishing Weekly Fish Report at LosCabosGuide.com

From the Admirals Kitchen – Lemon Smoked Tuna Recipe

Tuna is a great alternative to smoking red meat as it is packed with proteins and vitamins and also low in fat. Tuna steak typically comes from Ahi tuna, which is the most high quality tuna you can purchase. Canned tuna usually comes from Albacore, which is a lesser quality tuna with a fishier smell. This recipe is made with Ahi tuna steaks, but you can also substitute yellow fin tuna steaks if you are unable to find Ahi due to seasonality. Lemon is one of the most popular flavors paired with tuna and helps to bring out the natural flavors of all fish. This lemon smoked tuna recipe is sure to please a variety of pallets who enjoy a nice tuna steak.

PISCES WEEKLY FISH REPORT July 12th to 18th, 2014

Overall Catch Success Rate All Species Combined 80%
Numbers at a glance: Billfish 50%, Tuna 50%, Dorado 8%, Other 10%

Pisces fish reportBILLFISH:  We had a big moon this week, which meant some tough fishing during the phase when it was full and the day leading up to it and just after, nevertheless when the fishing was on, it was red hot. Added to this were the abundant tuna catches which were a welcome bonus most days. We were again surprised by the number of blue marlin and sailfish, which combined, outnumbered the catches of striped marlin, something we have not seen in years.  Biggest blue marlin for us this week was a 350 lb’er released aboard Pisces 35 ft. Cabo Listo, by Bryan Brewer from Boston, Mass, just outside the Golden Gate, where he also released two striped marlin. Pisces Bill collector has been on a role recently and this week was no exception – they caught a blue marlin estimated at 250 lbs. plus a sailfish for Robert Click from Plano, Texas, followed by an estimated 280 lb. blue marlin, estimated 150 lb. striped marlin and a tuna on July 15th for Wilkes McCain also from Plano, Texas.  We have a new 31 ft. Bertram in the fleet, “Tiburon”, which sees Rosendo, former deckhand from the Valerie, now promoted to Captain, with Abraham Castro, son Julio (of Tracy Ann fame) as his deckhand, already doing well, with a 300 lb. blue marlin on 60 lb. test line and five tuna for Joe Spinella from Sacramento, CA on July 13th.  A couple of days later, the new boat got their second blue marlin of the week, smaller at around 210 lbs., nevertheless a good catch when added to three tuna for Jonathan and Laura Glover from East, Texas. July really should be called the month of the Texans, as they are here in force and catching a ton of fish.  Sean Low from Middleton (yes Texas) fished La Brita and caught 200 lb. blue marlin and a tuna for the table. Pisces Andrea had a similar size fish, taken on a guacamaya lure twenty eight miles out from Land’s End for Douglas Beyer, from Ohio. Kevin Christensen from Midland, Texas went out on Valerie and did well to release both a blue and striped marlin just five miles off of the Old Lighthouse.  Another new addition to the fleet 50 ft.  “Flora T” had a superb day on July 17th for Fritz Aldine from Austin, Texas, with a 280 lb. blue marlin released, a sailfish released, as well as a 45 lb. wahoo – definitely not released, thirty five miles out from the 210 spot. Ruthless was the top sailfish boat, with three released in a day for Phillip Hale, from Houston. Stripe marlin catches were usually of a single fish, but Bill Collector released two and caught ten tuna up to 111 lbs. for Ollie Oltmer from Belton, Texas – seems like the rebuild of her engines Bill Collector has been doing really well. A little over half of our boats caught. . . .  Read the complete Pisces Sportfishing Cabo Fish Report at LosCabosGuide.com

GORDO BANKS PANGAS Fish Report July 18th, 2014

GORDO BANKS PANGAS San Jose del Cabo Fish Report July 18, 2014
Anglers –

TonyPopeFamilyDoradoThe summer season continues to progress along, crowds of visitors remain at moderate levels, weather patterns are becoming increasingly more humid and tropical, presently we have no new tropical storms that have developed off of mainland Mexico, where ocean water temperatures are ripe for development and we are seeing local thunderstorms arise practical each afternoon over the foothills and north of the International Airport.

Oceans swells have resided, winds have been variable, some days gusting from the east and then the south. Overall the fishing action was scattered and spotty from day to day. Very strong southern current sweeping through, this will put baitfish down and cause fish to go into the lock jaw mode. Water temperatures are ranging from 85 degrees and even warmer throughout the region, definitely no talk of the water being too cold now, in fact it is the opposite, warmer than what would be considered ideal.

San Jose del Cabo charters are finding the most productive grounds to be north of Punta Gorda, from Iman to Vinorama and further towards Los Frailes. In the Puerto Los Cabos Marina channel area los carnaderos (bait fishermen) are finding caballito and moonfish, ballyhoo have been another option. There have been schools of sardinas moving into the Los Frailes region the past couple of weeks and they are being vigilantly watched over by locals and authorities alike. Limited amounts of these prized evasive baitfish, which have been absent from local waters for over six months, are now being netted and hauled by commercial pangeros towards the Vinorama grounds, a handful of San Jose del Cabo charters have obtained these baits and are using them to entice the yellowfin tuna which have been schooling with black skipjack within a couple miles of shore north of Vinorama. The tuna are quality fish, averaging 30 to 40 pounds, these fish were coming up to  . . . Read the complete Gordo Banks Pangas Fishing Report at LosCabosGuide.com

Its hot and Humid

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. Well lets get on with the fishing report for this past week.

WEATHER: The weather has pretty decent this past week we haven’t had any rain like last week. It has been pretty hot and humid all this week with partial clouds in the afternoons. The humidity has really been intense and that’s what gets you. Today is pretty clear and nice with a few clods out but all in all really nice.

WATER: Wow check out the Tempbreak map there is 80 degree water everywhere even on the pacific side and this is going to be good for our fishing. Last week there was just patches of 80 degree water on the pacific but looking at the map today shows me there is lots of warm water out there leading me to believe that the Blue Marlin fishing will get even better. Go to Tempbreak.com to check out map. http://www.tempbreak.com/index.php?&cwregion=cb

TUNA: Well the Tuna fishing has really slowed as it was real good the first part of the week outside the San Jamie Bank about 17 to 26 miles but it all changed and bad news for us all as the Tuna sainners showed up in force about the middle of the week. They show up and take all the fish for about a week and then off to the cannery and then we have to wait a week for new schools to show up in force  so by the time we find them again it gets good and then in about 10 days the Tuna boats show up again and the whole cycle starts all over again. I am just wondering how long the worlds oceans can stand this kinda of pressure before the system breaks. I guess its anyones guess I just hope my kids and grandkids can see how it was and how it should stay as there is no need in raping the ocean like this. The government just sits back and watches the commercial Tuna boats make billions of dollars from the ocean and the sport fishing industry is just in the millions so we know who is going to win this battle. It sure isn’t the sport fisherman or the Tuna.

BILLFISH: Well the Bill fishing has changed a bunch this week with Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin and Sailfish still hitting pretty good all week. Most are being caught at the doughnut about 16 miles offshore up to the . . . . Read the complete JC’s Sportfishing Weekly Fish Report at LosCabosGuide.com
