LETS GO FISHING!!!!

Tight lines to all you anglers who have fished, and have yet to fish, aboard the Mighty Mako.
Hopefully, you will experience the thrill of a life time (or an enjoyable day among friends and family) when you fish aboard the Mighty Mako in 2017.

Tight Lines,
Capt. Dave

The past week or so has been filled with high winds, high tides, high surf, flood waters and high anxiety. There just hasn’t been much time for fishing or any related fishing activities other than to secure lines on the boats and double check insurance policies. That looks to be all behind us except for the anxiety of what the current storms in the Atlantic will be doing and what direction they will be tracking over the coming week. The weather looks good for this week and for the most part, the water should be clearing up and things will hopefully get back to normal. Water temps have fallen back into the 70’s so most of the action will still be focused on the Blacktips and Bull Sharks as well as the Spanish Mackerel which can be hit or miss. The Bull Reds will be showing themselves as soon as the water temps drop another 5-7degress and that normally occurs by the end of the month. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the closest thing to Tarpon fishing is surface baiting for good size Blacktips. These Sharks nearly always put on a great aerial display, and can be brought to the boat way faster than a good size Tarpon. Anyway, all our thoughts and prayers are with family, friends and the unlucky individuals who have suffered, and continue to struggle with the aftermath of Irma. Hopefully the named storms that are currently meandering around the Atlantic don’t do anyone harm and only provide areas (specifically our beaches) with some good surf.  Next report comes next weekend. Have a Blessed week!

*Fall fishing season might very well be the best fishing that the island’s surrounding waters have to offer. Ultra light tackle for Redfish and Trout offers backwater enthusiasts a great opportunity for fast paced action and rod bending moments. Glassy, calm water and a beautiful picturesque setting along the marshes and tidal creeks, offer the idyllic backdrop to the autumn fishing season. When combining the perfect fishing spot with the right tide, the chance of a memorable few hours are almost a given.

Consumer Alert

A message to all visiting anglers. Please be aware of misleading fishing guide websites offering their services to Hilton Head visitors, as well as fishing reports that promise you the moon and the stars every trip. An attractive looking website accompanied by claims of “local expertise” and years of experience does not make it so, and my weekly fishing report is always honest and trustworthy. The Mighty Mako is not trailord to various docks and landings, demanding cash payment only. The Mighty Mako has fished out of Palmetto Bay Marina for over 25 years and has been docked in the exact same slip (slip #1) for the entire time. We gladly accept several forms of payment and offer all of the amenities one would expect from a reputable marina and charter service.
