Posted by: Jig-fisher - 3 hours ago - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (1)

Took the boat up today.  Lake is ice free.  1st boat to launch at around 7 am.  An Osprey came flying over when we were prepping the boat, thought it was going to land in a dead tree next to the prepping area.   Nope, the branch it grabbed broke.  It held on to the branch and flew off with it, it must be nesting.  Pretty neat to see.  Air temp was 26 degrees on arrival, water was 43 degrees.  Wind blew periodically, and had periods of calm glass water as well. Trolled all over the lake and found quite a few planter bows.  Everything we caught was shallow, 20 ft or less.  Marked some fish deeper but whatever they were, they didn't hit.  Long lining rapala type lures on the surface was productive.  Lots of long releases as well as many to the boat.  Those little bows would rocket out of the water after feeling the hooks, jumping multiple times.  I also had one double and brought both to the boat.  We also caught a lot on dodger and squid combos down about 15 - 20 ft.  Never found any bigger fish.  Lots of boats, lots of bank fishermen. Got buzzed by a bald eagle as well.  Water temp was up to nearly 46 when we pulled the boat out just before noon.

  Cabo San Lucas Fishing Report - JC Sportfishing April 10th, 2021

Jc’s Sportfishing Weekly Fish Report.
As the Admiral Seas It
Fishing Report: 04/04/21 to 04/10/21
Stop by our Office for up to Date Fishing Report

Some striped marlins caught this week from the 1150 and the 95 spots on the Sea of Cortez, they are biting on live bait and ballyhoo. Water temps are starting to warm up.
We caught and released 2 marlin on Sunday, 1 on Monday, 2 on Tuesday, 1 on Wednesday and 3 on Saturday.

No reports.

A few of the yachts have been going 50 to 60 miles off shore and catching a few on the pacific, small fish, not worth the run.

No reports.

A few roosters starting to show.

Inshore fishing has been very good for small snapper, small grouper, skipjacks, white bonitas and other bottom fish great to eat. The sierras have been hard to find, just a few on hoochies.

The weather has been super nice, not too hot, mid 80's, no wind.

Stop by the office and say hi and get the up to date fishing report.

If you have any questions send me and e-mail at: jcsportfishing@gmail.com
or give me a call at 011 52 (624) 147 5821.

Don’t forget to visit our website www.jcsportfishing.com

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.

WEATHER: Over the next 14 days the Cabo San Lucas forecast suggests the average daytime maximum temperature will be around 28°C, with a high for the two weeks of 30°C expected on the afternoon of Thursday 15th. The mean minimum temperature will be 18°C, dipping to its lowest on the morning of Monday 19th at 17°C. Expect the following 14 days ahead to remain predominantly dry. On the whole winds are likely to be moderate.
This link which will show you water temperatures for the southern half of Baja. http://www.tempbreak.com/index.php?&cwregion=cb


1-quart red wine
1 tablespoon sugar
8 thyme sprigs, divided
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1 bay leaf
1-star anise pod
1-pound butter
Olive oil
3 tablespoons chopped garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
8 (4-ounce) triggerfish fillets


1. Make the sauce in a saucepot over medium heat, combine red wine, sugar, 4 thyme sprigs, cloves, bay leaf, and star anise and reduce to a syrupy consistency. Remove from heat and aside to cool.

2. Prepare an ice bath in a large bowl. In another saucepot, heat butter and cook until browned. Remove pot to ice bath and whisk butter until it solidifies and browned bits are incorporated. Return wine reduction to stove over low heat and whisk in cooled brown butter until combined.

3. Grill the fish in a small bowl, combine olive oil with garlic, leaves from remaining thyme sprigs, salt, and pepper. Heat a grill to 500 degrees and brush triggerfish fillets with herb oil mixture. Place fillets on grill, skin side down, and cook for 10 to 15 minutes (cook time will depend on thickness of fish). Continue to brush with additional herb oil mixture as they cook. To serve, plate fillets and spoon about 4 tablespoons of red wine butter sauce over each.


1 cup ice
1 lime wedge
3 ounces silver tequila
1 small mango—peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped (3 ounces)
1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon chile powder, such as Tajin (see Note)
2 ounces orange liqueur
1 1/2 ounces agave nectar
3 ounces grapefruit soda

Spread the chile powder in a dish. Moisten the rim of a margarita glass with the lime wedge; dip the rim in the chile powder to coat. In a blender, puree the mango. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into the glass and serve.

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.

  2021 Grandslam Challenge Entry/Rules
Posted by: Cowboypirate - Yesterday, 02:42 PM - Forum: Utah Contests - No Replies

Looks like we are going to do it...Welcome to the 2021 Grand Slam Challenge (that is if you sign up)

IE a contest to see who can catch the most species of fish in Utah. 

Pretty basic rules

1- Contest starts April 12th (Monday) and Ends Nov 21st (Sunday)
2- Fish must be caught in legal bodies of water in Utah with legal methods
3- To enter, create a post on the contest board stating " 2021 Grand Slam Challenge"
4- To post an entry, take a photo along side a Grand Slam placard (attached) and include date, species and location and post on the Utah Fishing Contest forum - you know the drill just like the cat or ice contest.
5- No measurements required
6- A prize will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. If a tie occurs the winners will be based on earliest post.
7- No cost to enter. Just must be a BFT member.

That's is about it (I am sure more clarification will be required as we start up)

Contest is meant to be a fun way to encourage exploring new waters for new species and sharing your journey with us.

Cookie's Corner (My brides business) will be donating the first place prize (a nice ultra light rod) we have not bought it yet, so I dont have the specs

  Cookie's first report
Posted by: CookiePirate - Yesterday, 01:15 AM - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (4)

Cowboy and I took a ride today with Buckwheat in tow. Talk about 3 blind mice. Cowboy was packing 3 ice packs on his neck, me doing the MS shuffle down the river bank and Buckwheat is temporarily sporting an IV for medications. The dog was the only one not packing a medical kit. That being said, it was a beautiful day on the Malad river. We were after bait for cats, but were really just out for the out. I caught one chub, one sucker and a mix of small cats. I think I could have taken the trophy for smallest cat. Cowboy managed to land a couple 10 inchers and says the really big one got away. That will teach him to fish for cats with an ultra light with 4 pound test. He did fill a minnow trap with little wiggling things that look like they might be appetizing to a cat. We were just dunking worms. Cats were between 4 and 14 inches. Looking forward to catching them big ones. [Image: 20210409-124650.jpg]

  Water is warming up....
Posted by: remo_5_0 - 04-09-2021, 11:50 PM - Forum: Utah Fishing General - No Replies

Gulf of Mexico in my area is starting to warm up which means big snook will be moving onto the beach. Me and a buddy went out this morning to see how things were looking. I played camera man as I only got 1 trout and lost a decent snook. We fished the north point of Anclote island on a strong incoming tide, stuck the boat right in the trough off the beach and just looked for cruising Snook. Got into a few but still a few weeks away from the big spawners to move in, fun day but I have had a bit too much sun the last couple of days, next week won’t help as I’ll be camping on Ft. Desoto island for 4 days. I should get some good flats fly fishing in next week though.[Image: 28-EB2918-2794-40-F1-8330-A7-B34-CFC85-E2.jpg]
