Big News out of Cabo San Lucas

Yesterday afternoon we heard that a big fish would be coming in, caught aboard a local charter boat “Mucho Loco” the rumor through the grapevine, was that it might be close to a thousand pounds, but there was some skepticism as to whether it was true. (read the whole story for a surprise ending): By dark the boat had not arrived and most people forgot about it and went home. We got a call around 9.00 pm from a friend saying that a big fish was being weighed on the main scale right in the thick of the pedestrian area.

BILLFISH: It’s great to finally have something to write about as boats gradually begin to get out fishing after the hurricane. Fisherman are hardy, not easily deterred by and are slowly trickling back into Cabo to take advantage of the fabulous fishing that the month of October offers. Some of the first anglers to visit Cabo, came all the way from Denmark; Henrik Buhl had fished all over the world trying to catch a blue marlin on what had been a 25 year mission, but all it took was for him to come to Cabo to realize his dream. He released his 150 lb blue along with a sailfish at Punta Gorda, aboard Pisces La Brisa on October 9th. Florida anglers Christopher Clark, Kevin Barnett & Rich Mitchell had an amazing time aboard our new 31 ft Bertram Tiburon on October 13th , when they released four striped marlin and caught fifteen dorado, of which five were released and one was stolen by Pancho the sea lion.

GORDO BANKS PANGAS Fish Report to October 24, 2014

October 24, 2014
Anglers –

We are now finally officially back in operation, as today we were connected once again to phone and Internet services. The long absence of not making any updates was all because we had no connection. We are now back operating fishing charters based out of the same panga area as before Hurricane Odile made a mess out of our marina basin. Work conditions are a bit rough, but we are making due and progress has been remarkable, as everyone is putting in extra efforts in this rebuilding phase. Limited numbers of charters have been departing, as flights from the U.S. have just resumed. Local infrastructure is making rapid advancements. Grocery stores are stocked, gasoline and diesel readily available, highways open, traffic signals working, Resorts are rebuilding, many have reopened already and most will be by the New Year.

There was 14 boats in the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament. Some of the fish caught  was  a Marlin  369lbs, 180lb Tuna , 50lb Tuna, 60lb Tuna caught by the guys from Oklahoma,  a 33lb Wahoo.Congratulations to the 2014 Los Cabos Billfish Tournament Champions on Team Reel Gold! They will be receiving cash and great prizes from our sponsors tonite at the awards ceremony at the beautiful beachside terrace of the Playa Grande Resort. They also qualified to compete at the Offshore World Championship in Quepos, Costa Rica in April. All in all it was some good fish days with lots of fun being had by all..


We are so glad for this and for you guys who have supported us and looked over the fishing report the last 2 and a half years we are grateful. This week we have had some fisherman show up to town and we are starting to get back to our normal routine of catching fish and offering one of the best Sport Fishing Charters in Los Cabos. Now on with the report.
WEATHER: The weather has been absolutely great with highs in the ladder to mid 80,s and lows droping down into the adder to low 70,s. Well as I write this you can feel that north wind blowing and its pretty cool over the last 2 nights really. You can definitely feel a change in weather and it wont come to soon with this summer being one of the longest and hottest I have ever felt here in Cabo and then on top of that we had Odile which really made it a long summer but we are beginning to see some light.

WATER: We still have really warm water on both the Sea of Cortez side and Pacific side also. The water temperature averages 83 to 85 degrees, which is pretty warm still but good for Marlin and Dorado fishing. Go to this link which will show you water temperatures for the southern half of Baja.
BILLFISH: The Marlin are all over the place but slow to bite as we baited 10 yesterday and only had one fish landed on Cabailltos. Most of the fish are one to three miles off the Light House and up to inside the San Jamie Banks. Today the Bob Marlin caught 2 Sailfish and one Tuna over 40lbs at Rancho Migrino and I have also hear of some small Blue Marlin caught and released this week.

GORDO BANKS PANGAS Fish Report to September 12, 2014

GORDO BANKS PANGAS San Jose del Cabo Fish Report to September 12, 2014
Anglers –

TunaTrio298For the past month we have watched Tropical Storm systems develop on a weekly basis.

After enjoying clear and calm conditions ever since the passing of Hurricane Norbert, at the present time we are watching the development of Tropical Storm Odile, moving at a mere

two miles per hour, some 250 miles south of Manzanillo. Forecasters have been more cautious in predicting exactly what this storm will do. It looks like the Southern Baja Peninsula might become lucky one more time, if Odile does follow a more northwesterly track as it gains strength to category two or higher before weakening over cooler waters.

Either way we do expect to see Red Flag closed Port conditions on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, surely more rain, hopefully no high winds.

Crowds of visitors continued to be moderate, as many people have stayed away due to frequent stormy forecasts. This is how the month of September goes, very tropical time of year and unpredictable from day to day.

Anglers were enjoying great wide open yellowfin tuna action since ocean conditions have calmed down. Sardinas continue to school near the rocks of the marina jetty and this has been the bait of choice for getting into the hot tuna action, hard to say how long this resource will remain plentiful.

Yellowfin tuna are now being found in various locations, over structure, such as La Fortuna, Iman and the Gordo Banks. The fish are coming up feeding on the sardinas, ranging in weights from 10 to 25 lb, to 40 to 80 lb and on up to 300 pounds. All sizes of yellowfin tuna in the area, most common catches were in the 15 to 60 pound range. The best chance at the hooking into a monster cow still seemed to be around the Gordo Banks, on Thursday a trio of local La Playita pangeros went on an afternoon trip and landed a 298 pound yellowfin while using 60 pound gear, so these cows are definitely lurking, just not in the numbers of the other smaller grade of tuna near La Fortuna or Iman Banks.

Several varieties of skipjack are now in the mix with the yellowfin tuna, also good numbers of wahoo on these same fishing grounds. Most of the wahoo landed were in the 10 to 30 pounds class, a few larger. Many hook ups were lost, as anglers were having wahoo strikes while they were using mono leaders targeting tuna. The wahoo were striking . . . . Read the complete Gordo Banks Pangas Fishing Report at

Hurricane Norbert Side Swipes Cabo Closing Port!!!

Port is open again!!

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 Hurricane Norbert did close our port here in Cabo for about 4 days so we don’t have fish information for those days, The storm more or less side swiped us here in Cabo with some pretty strong winds to about 55 to 60 miles an hour and possible gusts to 65 miles an hour. The storm did knock out the lights on a couple different occasions but they were back on after 2 to 3 hours. Along with the rain did come some heavy rain at times flooding some streets and low lying areas. We actually lucked out really as we didn’t get the brunt of the storm as that was out to sea 100 miles. Well its early September and we don’t need any more of that tropical weather. I am sitting here writing the report and its sunny and mostly clear so I thought I would throw on a little country music and I am taken back to a couple little Honkey Tonks I stumbled into in Bakersfield. I wonder if I am welcome there anymore?

WATER:  It looks as if the water temperatures are pretty much how they were the week before. I thought this storm would push in some really warm water but it looks like last week according to Tempbreak. So pretty much the same with cooler waters on the Pacific side and when I say cooler I mean cool from 81 to warmer to 86 or 86 so not a major difference from Sea of Cortez and Pacific but a few degrees. Go to to check out map.

TUNA: There were some big Tunas caught before the storm with one tipping the scales at 270 lbs according to Griceldas Smokehouse. I don’t know when Mexico is going to wake up and start protecting the sport fishing and all the tourist dollars that come into the area because of fishing. It seems no one is thinking of the long term affects this will have on the tourist and sport fishing industry. Not only that the sport fishing and tourist industry employee many, many families here in Los Cabos

BILLFISH: Fishing was real good up till the storm arrived with lots of Striped Marlin and Sailfish being caught. There were also reports of Blue Marlin caught first part of. . . . Read the complete JC’s Sportfishing Weekly Fish Report at
