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.

Oven Roasted Spanish Mackerel

Oven Roasted Spanish Mackerel marinated with grape tomatoes, capers, dried chili peppers and lemon is healthy, and one very tasty and easy meal to make.

4 Wild-caught Spanish Mackerel fish (bone in, gutted, cleaned, head and tail discarded)
4 tablespoons olive oil + 2 more
4 tablespoons minced garlic
4 teaspoons capers
1½ cup grape tomatoes
1½ teaspoons dried oregano
1½ teaspoons dried thyme
4 bay leaves
10 dried chili peppers
2 lemons (sliced in rings)
½ cup cilantro leaves (washed, dried and chopped)
Salt & Pepper



1. Using 4 tablespoons of olive oil, rub each fish with olive oil and set aside.
2. Slice ½ cup of grape tomatoes in half.
3. On the inside of each fish, spread evenly 1 tablespoon of minced garlic and sprinkle with salt, pepper a pinch of thyme and oregano.
4. Stuff each fish with a few sliced grape tomatoes, 1 dried chili pepper, 1 teaspoon capers, 2 slices of lemon and 1 bay leaf.
5. Place fish in a deep baking dish, so they sit tightly and close to each for the marinade to soak into them.
6. Cut one fresh lemon in half and squeeze it over the fish. Place the lemon halves into the dish between the fish. Top with fresh cilantro, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2-4 hours.

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.
